Inflation is making everything, from your morning coffee to driving your car, more expensive. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that “infla-dating” is a trend that’s becoming more and more popular. What’s “Infla-Dating”? It’s a term coined by Plenty of Fish, but the concept has been around for a long time. It’s going on low-cost (or even free) dates. Dating experts say there is a silver lining to Infla-Dating. It actually takes a lot of pressure off of both people and allows them to relax and enjoy each other’s company more. It also gives you a more realistic picture of what that person is like, outside of fancy restaurants or expensive events.

Some less expensive date ideas to try include:

Going on a scenic walk or hike
Grabbing coffee at a cute café
Attending a free local event
Going to a dog park with your pups
Trying a hole-in-the-wall restaurant
Having a picnic
Bike riding
Doing a meditation class
Checking out your local farmer’s market
Planning an at-home movie night with popcorn and candy
Playing chef in your own kitchen
Visiting botanical gardens
