What it Costs Girls to Date You

I was having dinner with some guy friends and one of them was griping about how it’s sooo expensive to take girls out, and how it’s cheaper to pay for a hooker.   While doing some calculations in my head, I asked the guys to list everything they have to pay for on a date.  Then while at dinner with my girlfriends the next night, I had them list everything they financially invest in for a date.  Obviously not a large enough sample size, but I would still like to share my findings:


  • Cab ride/gas to restaurant: $10 – $20
  • Dinner for 2 w/drinks: $80 – $150
  • Cab ride/gas to after bar: $10 – $20
  • After dinner drinks: $50 – $80
  • Cab ride/gas home: $10 – $20
  • Condoms: $6 – $12


TOTAL                                     $166 – $302


  • Cab ride/gas to salon:  $10 – $20
  • Blowout:  $50 – $70
  • Mani-pedi:  $20 – $40
  • Bikini wax:  $30 – $50
  • New outfit/item of clothing:  $30 – $100
  • Cab ride/gas from salon:  $10 – $20
  • Cab ride/gas to restaurant:  $10 – $20
  • Cab ride/gas home:  $10 – $20
  • Pain of being in heels:  Priceless


TOTAL                                      $170 – $340

Yes, this is New York City with high-maintenance women, but this scenario is also based on a really nice date.  We understand some of you think it’s unfair to pay for us on dates, but please take into consideration how much time, effort and money we spend to prep for the date so you’ll be proud to be seen in public with us.  Not to mention that most women these days will offer to pay for part of the date anyway.

What I’ve also noticed about girls is that the more you financially invest in us (nice dinners, gifts, etc), the more effort we’re willing to spend on our looks (learn how to spot gold diggers, though).  If you want pretty, classy company, invest in it.  You won’t be disappointed with the ROI.
