Elite Singles recently released their findings on what a typical date costs in the US and around the world.
The researchers defined a „typical date night“ as one that includes a mid-range dinner for two, a bottle of wine, two movie tickets, and a 5-mile taxi back home.
By running the numbers from 21 major US cities, researchers found that the average cost of a date in the US is $117.
According to the data, romance is priciest in New York City, where couples can expect to shell out about $144 on a typical date night.
On the other end of the spectrum, the average romantic evening in Indianapolis costs about $100. That makes Indianapolis the cheapest city for dating in America.
So how does the cost of dating in the US stack up against the rest of the world? The analysis found that the average cost of a date worldwide is $92. That’s about $25 less than the US average.
