It would seem that Essex girls are the cheapest dates according to a recent poll.


Quote:

1. Essex - 61%
2. Liverpool - 59%
3. Newport - 57%
4. Northampton - 44%
5. Slough - 41%
6. Glasgow - 38%
7. Hull - 32%
8. Blackburn - 27%
9. Middlesbrough - 24%
10. Swansea - 19%


While those who are the most expensive are

Quote:

1. Woking - 56% of women surveyed
2. Winchester - 47%
3. Oxford - 41%
4. Epson - 34%
5. Bath - 28%
6. Cheltenham - 24%
7. Brighton - 29%
8. Ipswich - 23%
9. Bournemouth - 18%
10. Reading - 16%


Personally I would like the cheap date more ( and no, you materialistic inbred useless piece of mindless tat, it's not because i'm tight ) but because any woman who is purely wanting you to spend large amounts is perhaps more interested in the contents of your wallet than the contents of your mind. Despite the bad rap that Essex girls get, this is actually a good thing and not a bad thing*.

So let's hear it for all those people in the first list and who look at the person and not 'what can they do for me'.

*This disclaimer is nothing to do with fearing the wrath of anyone from Hull either who came in at number 7. I also used to have an auntie and uncle who lived in Bath so Bath is also exempt...

Err...minty I live very close to the second most expensive place on the list!

I do agree with part of what you say though - someone who wants you to spend over 150 on the first date is perhaps just after your money rather than wanting to spend time with you as a person. However, I think a first date should feel special, that you should do something you don't usually (try somewhere new) and make a little effort. It doesn't have to be a fancy expensive restaurant, but somewhere the other person doesn't normally go but would like to.

Winchester... I forgot to mention Winchester as well...

Ummm...


Right ok... The humble hard drive has seen quite a few 'evolutions' over its time. It has been very useful in helping computers become what they are today.

The Winchester drive http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winchester_drive is something that started it all.

Therefore, anyone from Winchester obviously has same namesake and is to be respected as such. Therefore meals in posh restaraunts is what these people deserve no less...


How'd I do? - thought this one up on the fly, does it show? Very Happy

I'd much rather a guy put a bit of effort into a first date! If they want something, they've gotta show you that you're worth it!

Ok minty all is forgiven Smile

Plus tbh everything is rediculously expensive in Winchester, you'd be hard pushed to manage to take anyone on a cheap date...
