Ever Wonder What The Average Cost Of A Date In Each State Is? Well, Now We Know

Dating is extremely fun, but it can be extremely stressful, too! Not only do you have those first-time butterflies (or hundredth-time butterflies), you also have to acknowledge the fact that dating can be very expensive.

According to a 1,000 person poll conducted in 2018 by GiftCards.com, singles spend an average of $146 a month on dates.

And the average cost across the US for a dinner for 2, a bottle of wine and 2 tickets to a movie will cost you up to $102.57!!!! *Sweats profusely*

Now, let’s drill down into the cost of each specific state. 24/7 Tempo constructed an index on things related to dating expenses in all 50 states. This index was then applied to the national average cost of the typical date. For more information on how they gathered this data, click here.

Just a friendly warning, your wallet may hate you or thank you for being in the state you’re in. Plus, who knows, maybe this might entice you to move somewhere cheaper! (Which literally just means more opportunities to meet awesome people on Clover!)
