That puts me at 75 dates -- most of which, for the record, were repeat dates.
Now, to figure out how much I spent on these dates without itemizing my credit card statements, I’m going to assume that my date and I both had between two and three drinks and I paid. I usually stick to beer, which will run you $7 in New York; but I tend to date women who order something with ginger ale in it... I recently set my Tinder location parameters to a smaller area, which has led to more dates in my own neighborhood of Manhattan's Upper West Side. Five drinks will net out at around $38 at the glorified dive bars I frequent; but will cost me closer to $50 at a wine bar.
