Does it take money to date?

So I’ve been dating for the pass few months, most of them have been hits, some are total miss. Most of the time I attract guys who are the old school type, that like to pay for everything, which I’m cool with, but I also like to pay to give it some balance.

I’ve notice that once you are interested in that person you want to spend more time with them, and that can become costly. Lets take a look at it. If we go out three times a week, rather is just dinner, movies or a concert, that can be a small car note.

My question is does it take money to date? I personally think it doesn’t take a bunch.. but it take some.. even if it covers gas.. But other than that no. If you have an imagination and resourceful You can pocket that cash and save it for a trip.

Here are a few date that don’t cost any money and could actually help you get to know that person better:

  1. Trip to the library: A trip to the library will help you find out what type of literature your date is into. I love reading, and if my date is an avid reader like I am, his reading interest may be a great conversation starter.
  2. Check out the local Saturday market: This is one of my faves. On Saturday morning there is a community market that has an array of activities available, that’s all free. You can check out the locally grown fruit and veggie, while getting to know what your date like and dislike(you may get hints on favorite meals etc). You can also try bake goods while walking and talking.
  3. late night walk on the beach: this by far is my favorite. Usually the beach houses novelty stores, bars and cool little activities that are mostly free.  Water puts me at ease and makes me totally relaxed, so that will make the conversation flow.
  4.  Check out this video where  Male Translation podcast talks about dating with out using money, and let me know your thoughts.

Blueberry Hill Farm

So I decided to hope in the Travan (truck/van) I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go.. I knew I wanted to complete something from my 30by 30 list. but it was getting late in the day. So I hopped on I-4 to go to Sugarloaf  Mountain, and I saw a sign for “U-pick “blueberries.
Blueberry  Hill Farm is a certified organic and conventional  farm, and it’s very beautiful. The owner and family makes honey, herbs and other neat items. here are a few pics of me and the family.

Question of the Day: What is your ” I’ll never do that again”

DIGITAL CAMERA

I will never.. I mean NEVER!!.. try this again..

Durian.

Durian smell like boiled rice that has been left in the heat for 12 hours with a mixture of dirty baby diapers.

That smell took over my fridge, and i had to thrown everything away.

What is something you will never do again?

I will cook breakfast all day.. everyday

augggh.. what a weekend.. let me sit down and tell you all about it.

My kids have no  chill.. i mean what so ever!..

Saturday mornings usually start at 6:30 and my oldest son is up looking for food.. i’m not talking about apples and peanut butter.. I mean Grits eggs and all the fixing.. So i try to satisfy the little animal in him with apples slices until at least 7:30/8.

So finally I go downstairs and fix my family breakfast. They already know that I love breakfast food, so they will be plenty.. here is a snap shot of what they usually get Saturdays and Sunday mornings.
