How Much Money Should You Spend On A First Date?

As if dating wasn’t difficult enough, Yahoo! Finance has released a new map, which shows the average price of dating in the U.S. In New York, you can spent anywhere near $297.27 on a single date… wow!  Meanwhile, in South Dakota, a date will cost you about $38.27. According to, the numbers on the map are pretty high because 25/7 Wall St., the site that compiled the data used in the map, added up “the average US price of a liter of wine in June 2018 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average US price of two movie tickets in 2017 from the National Association of Theater Owners, and the national average cost of two restaurant dinners in 2016 from a Zagat survey.”
