    How much does it cost to have a gf?

    I'm curious about how much does it cost to have a gf? I know cost will be different for everyone. But roughly about how much do you guys spend in a week/month? Thanks

    It doesn't cost anything to have a gf. However dating, going out etc will take some planning, creativity and some spending money.

    I'll try to look past the incredibly cringy way the question was framed. Having a girlfriend isn't like owning a car. Try not to frame it like taking her to dinner is the same as changing your oil.

    Aside from whatever you're spending for yourself when going out to do whatever, it costs as much as you want to spend on her. For me, absent birthdays or something, it was close to nothing. I dated women who were fine or even happy to pay their way. While you probably don't want to be flat broke, dating and being in a relationship doesn't have to be a money sink.

    OP, what has prevented you from asking a girl out?

    Well if we’re still talking about escort services, depending on the quality I think it’s several hundred.

    Just basic dating? Well like jman said really depends on what you want to spend there.

    Me personally if you’re more hung up on who’s paying for what than the actual dating I’m not going to waste my time. I’m there to date you not deal with Freudian female/mommy issues. It’s only an issue if you make it one.

    Not sure why you’re asking though considering your current status, have you actually gone out on a date or is this post to convince you not to?

    I'm going to take a wild guess and presume money is an issue for you since you asked in another thread for free dating apps.

    Most of my favorite dates were free or close to free. I love me a nice walk or hike through a place with awesome scenery. I might want a cup of tea and a pastry after, so we're talking about $8 or so.

    Dating shouldn't be factored in as a cost.

    I dated a guy who was in debt. We made cute cheap dates and stuff.

    But if you are not financially stable. Maybe the best thing to do is focus on you and your finances and then think about dating.

    Like doing cute dates out can add up. Also some girls don't believe in splitting cost if meals and activities (it's the modern world... Why some people feel men should pay is beyond me - this is just my opinion and not everyones).

    Dating a girl shouldn't be anymore cost than going out with friends. If it is... Rethink the situation. Everyone is different to be fair.

    I wouldn’t recommend dating anyone unless you have a job and can afford to go out here and there .

    Also depends what type of women you’re going out with , some are cool with doing simple things , while others like going out quite a bit . It just really depends.

    But I totally understand that you can feel like you’ve “ wasted” money and time with someone if things go south .

    Do not spend money if it will feel like a waste if it goes south. Understand every relationship goes south except the last one, however long that takes.

    Spend your money when you want a date, and regard it as a mutual kindness. They are kind enough to join you for an activity of YOUR choosing. You host them. I do this with my friends, even.

    Nothing has prevented me from asking a girl. I've just never been accepted because of being different.
