Finally, singles often eat out at restaurants or order takeout more than families because they feel it's not worth the effort to cook for themselves, and in general participate more in city nightlife.
This can quickly add up to hundreds of extra dollars spent each week.
A big gain for overall spending, but they have a mixed effect on quality of life.
Single people are more likely than married people to go out to bars, coffee shops, restaurants, gyms, bookstores, and concerts. Singles help drive urban economies, but they also help drive up the cost of real estate, which makes city living hard on working-class families.
For a first date, meeting on a weekend afternoon at a coffee shop or going out for ice cream on a first date near a park gives you a chance to get to know each other, with the option of going for a walk in the park if you like the person, and the option of leaving after an hour if you don't.
For later dates, cities will have plenty of free places that make great dates, like museums, cultural events like 'First Fridays' and "Shakespeare in the park" and gardens and parks to check out.
Hiking in local state or national parks and cooking a special dinner together at home also can make for a fun time on a budget.
