Free date ideas. I suck at life.
My ideas-

Museum( some other kind of museum)
Exploratorium(techy museum)
Art museum(art museum)
Night hike
Ice skating

All of them end up costing tons of money. I need [email protected]#[email protected]#

She likes european culture, food, languages, etc etc.

What can I do for free? I really need help, PREEz.

Please. Someone, anyone.

How does a night hike end up costing tons of money? How does a movie on TV cost a ton of money? I'm so confused.

Pheard 02-05-08 05:57 PM

My bad, the ones that we haven't done cost alot of money.

We've hiked, and watched tons of movies.

She can't ride. :(

It's impossible to find a free museum in SF. Everywhere else you go museums are free, not in SF they are all 10+ admission.

The non-profit museums ask firmly for a donation, but cannot require a donation. :)

Butterfly emporium (if you have one in your area), great place when it's cold out in the winter ... wait! you live in California. Go for a walk on the beach.

Some ideas:

Golden Gate park (arboretum, japanese tea gardens, etc) and other parks
Visit a playground (fun to do once in a while as an adult)
Street fairs
Farmers markets
Drive down the coast

Ahh the tea gardens...great idea.

I really like the NFT guides...check out the San Francisco one online - it is free:

And yet... you would date her ?


slagjumper 02-05-08 06:47 PM

If she cant ride, why dont you make a date to "teach" her. That way you'll have your hands all over her and give her a thrill. Or borrow a tandem and ride somewhere where there are a lot of women. They will all smile as you pedal past and your date will love that. See if someone from the Tandem forum feels your pain and work out a deal to wash their Ferrari in return for borrowing their Santana.

Also there is this thing called the internet--

How about this--
Free Sailboat Rides
The Cal Sailing Club offers free sailboat rides every Sunday from 1 to 4pm. First come, first serve, with all-you-can-eat BBQ at the end of the day ($5 suggested donation). At the Berkeley Marina, next to Adventure Playground.

But dude, when there are plenty of guys around the ones with money are going to get more attention.

Let her sit and watch while you browse the internet or play a video game. Women LOVE that!

Make sandwiches from home, get food from the fridge and go for a picnic at Lake Merced and apply for a job.
Go to Crystal Springs and walk around there, see if they have a job at the gate, collecting fees.
Go hang out at Tanforan Mall and apply for jobs.
Ask your mom to treat you to a pizza party (apply for a job while you pick it up) and clean out that dang garage.
Go hang out at "This is the Place" Mormony Book Store, and apply for a job.
Go hang out at a regular book store, look at books about cool museums and apply for a job there.
Go to GGP and look at the rose garden. Then go to the museum there and apply for a job.

Honestly Jon. If I was going out with a guy who shows no interest in working, going to school or generally doing something to improve his current "I'm poor" situation I wouldn't think much of him.

You are smart, you are physically capable. I know that you can handle more than you put out you can. If I lived closer, I'd come over there, drag you out by your collar and spend a day with you applying for jobs.

But you are an adult and I shouldn't have to do that.

I know I'm talking rough on you here but that is because I care about you and I want you to succeed. So get out there and get going!!

That only takes 20.9435 seconds. What would we do after that?

Sixty Fiver 02-05-08 07:07 PM

No explody pup...they don't.

Don't forget to watch colleges and other places for free or really cheap music or plays.

1. After 3 significant figures, extra decimal places become irrelevant unless you're in a very controlled laboratory setting.

2. Sex.
