50 Cheap and Free Solo Date Ideas

Who says you need another person to go out on a date and be treated?

Since living by myself, I have learned that you can still go out and have all the fun you want without relying on another person to go with. I prove that already with all the solo trips I go on with Topdeck or by myself.

As much as it’s lovely to have an experience with someone else, sometimes there’s not going to be someone else to go with. So why should it stop you from experiencing what life has to offer?

As we’re in a cost-of-living crisis and going out on dates can get expensive, I’ve started writing down solo date ideas that are either cheap or free that I’ve either done myself or what to do.

Hopefully, this will give you some inspiration too!
