Necessary Expenses

It’s terrible to be alone and it’s terrible to be in love but one is cheaper than the other.

I read this quote during the weekend and I thought it was funny. It reminded me of this blog entry I read, but I don’t remember where. This person was talking about how he saved so much money over the years by not dating.

Understandable. Dating involves a lot of going out, which usually means money. Similarly going out with friends usually means spending money. However, I see these as necessary expenses. It goes under the category of reasons why I save money – so I can spend it with friends and people I like.

By the way, the bf agrees with this blogger that dating cost money. Of course he says that I’m worth it and that I am relatively easy on his wallet anyway. This is true. I do a lot of business travel, and by the time I come home I never want to see a restaurant again. Sometimes I feel like eating nothing but fruits and maybe cereal. Result: we save a lot of money not going out to eat.

It is true that being in a relationship is def harder on the wallet than being single, but they say that seeing a loved one or friend at least once a day is equivalent to increasing your annual income by $50,000. :)
