No matter if you’re a local or just visiting Wales…
Regardless if you’re single or in a relationship…
Coming up with date ideas can be a problem.
So we’ll list some affordable ideas for dates in Wales. Yet first, we’ll help with…
Understanding Your Needs
Long-term relationships are great, but not for everyone. Some people prefer casual flings. Others pursue as many one-night stands as possible. All of those are fine. But the problem starts when people can’t figure out what they need. And needs and wants aren’t the same…
Someone may want to hook up with the hottest girl in Wales, but their soul may be craving someone to hold their hand for more than one night.
Sadly, figuring out what you need is sometimes possible only by experiencing things you think you need and realizing that you were wrong.
If you don’t want to learn from your mistakes, learn from other people’s mistakes. Think about your friends and their dating lives. And if thinking about someone who’s in a long-term relationship doesn’t make you crave the same… You probably aren’t ready for anything serious. On the other hand, if you feel jealous of your friends who keep getting hookups, you should probably try to get some, too.
Meeting Like-minded People on Dating Platforms
Imagine seeking one-night stands on a dating platform called “Married After a Month.” You may fool someone into sleeping with you, but their expectations wouldn’t be the same as yours.
And that erodes souls, both yours and theirs. Don’t go around fooling people. Especially since there’s a site where getting online hookups is an easy thing to do. If you’re in Wales, use the geolocation feature to hide everyone who isn’t in your area, so you don’t waste time chatting with singles you aren’t likely to meet in person.
Date Night Ideas to Save Money in Wales
We hope that now you have a clearer vision of your dating goals. To help you have fun with people you meet online, we’ll list some affordable date ideas in Wales. The first 2 are happening at someone’s home, which screams intimacy (and saves a lot of money).
Everyone loves a good movie in good company. It may be inappropriate for the first date if you don’t know the other person, but it’s a perfect money-saving idea. Everyone has Netflix, HBO+, Disney Channel, or something similar. That’s basically free. Some finger food and drinks, and you’re covered for a night. Dates rarely get more affordable than that.
We’ll suggest 2 movies for a Welsh movie night…
- Hedd Wyn (1992) – A moving Welsh-language film based on the life of the poet Ellis Humphrey Evans during World War I.
- Pride (2014) – Though not Welsh in setting, it tells the heartwarming story of a group of Welsh miners supporting LGBTQ+ causes during the UK miners’ strike.
Cook at Home
Watching a movie together is such a great date idea that Netflix and Chill became a worldwide phenomenon. Yet, there’s an even better, and if done right, equally affordable date idea. Cook together. It’s more intimate, and you’re more likely to bond because the focus isn’t on a screen but a shared activity.
Here are 2 classic Welsh recipes to make your nights taste better without visiting pricey restaurants.
- Welsh Rarebit – A savory dish with rich cheese sauce served over toasted bread.
- Cawl – A traditional Welsh soup with lamb or beef, leeks, and root vegetables.
Stargazing is a great date idea because it’s free and makes you realize how tiny we are compared to the universe. That makes it more likely that you’ll become closer to your partner. And if the weather allows it, you may even create naughty memories under the night sky.
A blanket and picnic basket with a bottle of wine and food add even more romance to these cheap date ideas. You can do it in any place without light pollution. But if we have to pick a spot in Wales to stargaze, our first choice is Snowdonia National Park.
Coastal Walk in Pembrokeshire
Walking is free, healthy, and lets you bond with the person next to you. It can be a way to save money. And it’s perfect for the first date because you aren’t at anyone’s home. If you feel the chemistry, the simplest thing to do is find a place to get naughty.
And the perfect place for a walk in Wales is Pembrokeshire. The only problem might be picking the spot to start because there are 186 miles of coastline and over 50 beaches. Enough for many free dates.
Hope you enjoy these date ideas with someone special soon. Good luck.
