    Easy to do with a full dinner each like that.

    Thats a minimum, to be honest.

    It's quite common. In fact, it's easier to spend at least that than it is to spend less.

    Pretty common at a ... you know ... "upscale" restaurant. I'm not trying to be pejorative (please forgive me if I sound that way). I'm just trying to differentiate from a ... say ... diner. Of course this is coming from a guy who's last meal out was KFC (which was actually eaten at home), which was picked up and paid for by my wife, so .... But, yeah, I can see you breaking through a hundred no problem.

    That seems about right, just a TAD on the high side, maybe. But it depends on where you are too. In New York City, that's average-to-low for a nice date--with dinner including dessert, wine, tips and cabs home. In Akron Ohio, that may be about 25% too high unless you're really trying to impress. An entree can cost you $20 each, wine about the same, dessert for two can be $25 so right there--that's nearly your hundred. The tip would probably put you over the top.

    Sure, you can eat at McDonalds--but for a nice dinner date with the standard stuff, that's not really bad OR high.

    My last date I split 10 dollar nachoes with her at a bar and she was so happy! :)

    I don't have a girlfriend or I don't go out to eat, so I can't help you there. But I will say only a measly 100 dollars spent on someone you truly love is probably a waste of money.
