“A date night for me is usually at home with HD/cable television, a home-cooked meal, a hot bubble bath, and for dessert: romantic lingerie. You do not have to break the bank if you have true love. In fact, my relationship proved even stronger in the times of lack. When my significant other and I had to make a ham sandwich, small snacks, and pick up a cheap bottle wine—we often had a much better time. Therefore, my advice is, make the most of whatever your financial situation can afford, don’t stress, and use this time to grow.”
