How to enjoy a relationship when you're broke

How you can get all the cheap thrills with the love of your life!

Broke & in love

Or shame. Or a fine balance of both.

Actually, many of us are not really broke like that, we are just wealthy in transition.

And frankly, there's nothing stopping us from finding the love of our lives, or actually enjoying these relationships.

I mean, na money we no get, we no kill person.

So, if you and your partner are broke AF but fun-loving and adventurous, here are date ideas that will give you all the magical thrills of loving and being loved... and the best part, they won't leave you broke.

1. Movie ticket deals

Yep. Almost all cinemas have days when tickets are sold at a reduced price. Cop yourself some tickets with bae and enjoy.

2. Free concerts

There are few good shows where you can see your favourite artistes perform for free or at really reduced cost.

They aren't that common, but these things happen occasionally and if bae is down, go there  together and have the night of your lives!

3. Cook together

See, all the recipes you see are stuff people were experimenting and stumbled upon.

You can make the best of your time with bae by whipping up several ingredients and trying out new recipes.

It could result in a great meal or terrible trash. But you'll have fun when making it and the fun and bonding of these moments are quite priceless.

4. Movies & Chill

Ok. That was supposed to be 'Netflix & Chill' but hey, you're broke and can't afford Netflix, remember?

Netflix has nothing on you though. Just flip open that laptop, share an earbud with bae, she snuggles up to you and you guys get to enjoy your favourite movie[s] or binge watch your favorite series.

5. Staycation

When you and your boo make the option of a staycation, you can read books together in companionable silence or take turns reading chapter after chapter to each other, you could gist, and then you could also cuddle and kiss and do more all day all night.

As you can see, people, love truly don't cost a thing!
