Today, as I surfed through the endless oceans of the interwebs, I stumbled across a study that said ‘Most Generous Men Live Down Under’. So, of course, I clicked.
Apparently, our home grown blokes are spending big bucks on first dates. Like really big bucks. We’re talking in the hundreds.
Date auction site, WhatsYourPrice.com asked its 850,000 members how much they would expect to spend on a first date and the results were, quite honestly, ridiculous. South Australian bachelors are the biggest spenders, shelling out, on average, $375 on a first date.
Three hundred and seventy five dollars.
That’s enough for dinner for two at your favourite cheap and cheerful Thai place every night for at least two weeks, or flights for two to Melbourne from Sydney plus spending money. I’m pretty sure I’ve never spent that much on anything, except overseas trips and the Marc Jacobs bag that I’ve used every single day for more than three years (price per wear is probably in the 30 cents range by now).
