El Pasoans Share Their Fun & Cheap First Date Ideas
First dates can be a little nerve racking for some, especially when dating in El Paso can be a bit difficult.
My idea of a good first date is always dinner and a movie. Sure, you don't talk during the movie, which kind of defeats the purpose of getting to know each other, but my strategy has always been movie first, then dinner- where we can then discuss said movie. It's basic, I know, but it works for me. I'm even okay with going to Chili's after the movie!
However, there are many out there who want fun and exciting ideas for first dates- but also budget friendly ones. Which is exactly what Reddit user @Postitive_Lie_142 asked:
Fun/Good cheap first dates? When i say cheap I don't mean I'm dead broke but average cost i should say. Don’t want to go too fancy if you get my drift. Good food spot or overall fun experience for a date, I'm in my early 20s. What are some good ideas. Especially for today, when its soo windy?
