Is Your Partner Making You Poor?

A recent survey has revealed that being in a relationship is more expensive than being single, which is why singles are better savers than couples.

It’s the 21st century and most women still think that their dates and boyfriends should pick them up, pay for their food, drinks, theatre and cinema tickets and drive them home at the end of the evening.

And, if you are one of those demanding men who don’t settle for anything less than what they truly want, you won’t be too happy to know that according to psychologists, attractive women expect their boyfriends to support them financially, pay for their meals and drinks and are less likely than not-so-beautiful women to contribute towards bills, especially on a first date.

Now, your girlfriend may be attractive yet not fall in the aforementioned category, but rest assured that all women like being treated as princesses and appreciate chivalry. The problem is that, even when you become more serious, your expenses will grow unless you decide to take the plunge and ask your girlfriend to move in together. Unfortunately, most people are reluctant to give up their much loved freedom and prefer maintaining their homes even when living with their partners.

But don’t despair: if you follow a few simple tips you won’t have to renounce romance just to keep your expenses under control.

Cook for her. We all know that the way to a man’s heart is through is stomach, but what most men ignore is that food is also a great way to win a woman’s heart. Taking your girlfriend/date to a fancy restaurant would cost you around £ 100 – 200. Now, seeing as all women like men who can cook, you might impress your plus one by cooking for her.

Rent a film. Ask her what kind of films she likes and rent a few DVDs that you think she might want to watch (it’s always better to have more options). Rest assured that she will appreciate your effort.
