These 20 romantic and cheap date ideas prove that wrong, and they focus on reconnecting with your partner so you can keep that spark alive.
Take a Walk
Sometimes simple is better. If you’re looking for a quick and super cheap escape, take a walk around a part of your neighborhood that you’ve never explored before, or make a trip into town and walk around Main Street.
You can either walk in silence, taking in the scenery, or you can catch up on each other’s lives while enjoying the weather.
Either way, you get fresh air, some light exercise, and you get to reconnect with your partner. If you don’t want any interruptions, leave your phones at home, or turn them off (in case you want to take pictures).
Bonus points: make this a routine! Go for walks after dinner, or make it a point to go for a walk at a time when someone can watch the kids on the weekend. Even if you’re out for an hour, that hour can do wonders for your relationship.
