I was just listening to the Mark and Brian show on KGON, and they said the average cost of a date in Portland is $84. This is for a rose, an "average dinner plus tip" (whatever that is), 2 drinks, movie tickets, and transportation.

girl_on_a_stick, Chicago was #2 with $128.

I want to know how a date can cost that much. I also want to know why you can't have a hiking date or a driving-around-aimlessly date or something cheap and more fun. I guess they didn't say anything about it being a "fun" date. :)

Haha, I believe it. Though I don't think the entire time I was in Chicago anyone spent close to that to go out with me.

Well, I don't blame any of my dates for not spending that much on me - that's a huge amount of money for just a few hours! Might as well just give me the money so I can put it towards a plane ticket somewhere, or something!

I know! That's what I was thinking! C'mon, take me to the top of a mountain to see the sunrise! Take me skinny dipping in a river somewhere! That costs nothing!

I bet that's a first date with someone you're trying to really impress. No date after that should cost that much! Half that, I would say...if no movie is involved.

Definitely. Although I wouldn't be surprised if the movie and drinks are three-quarters of that price. It's sad how expensive they are now.
