THE DAY DATE
HERE’S SOMETHING YOU might not have thought about and it maybe it’s because everyone thinks all the action happens at night……Well they’d be wrong.
Let’s talk about the DAY DATE, that’s right we’re taking her out while the sun is still shining. This can be a simple yet wonderful thing. If done right it will progress the relationship and it shouldn’t cost you more then 40 BUCKS. Look at it like this with the DAY DATE all of the hoopla is gone. There’s no Valet parking, no Waiter,
no Over-Priced Food and Drink. It’s really about you and how you set it up. The key is to keep it SIMPLE. Now by simple that doesn’t mean you don’t put in any effort.
The effort is in the PREPARATION.
So what does it take to make the DAY DATE a success? This is where the effort comes in. The date should consist of a picnic and a park. Wait a second did I just here the word PICNIC? Why yes you did. Now you might be thinking…I’m too manly for a picnic…..If that’s the case…. Well you’d be wrong. Your date will actually think you’re more of a MAN for doing so and why? Because it’s fucking ROMANTIC and let us not forget Romance is the key .
Let’s talk about what you’re going to need. Let’s think European. That means we’ll have some bread, some cheese, cold-cuts and some wine. For the wine get a bottle of white or a nice rose`. It’s day time so a bottle of red would be a little too strong for the desired effect. If you’re afraid of white wine don’t be. It will show your lady that you have some class. You can get a decent bottle for 10 BUCKS. We suggest a
Sauvignon Blanc, preferably from New Zealand, or a Pinot Grigio. You’re going to want to get a loaf of bread or baguette, that’s a loaf of French bread. It should only run you a 1.99 at the local super market. When it comes to meats(cold-cuts) remember, you’re not looking to fill up. Get a quarter pound of ham, maybe some turkey. It doesn’t have to be the fancy kind and it should run you about 7 BUCKS for both. Here’s a little tip-stay away from roast beef, corn beef , pastrami or any heavy salted meats. They can wreak havoc on ones stomach. Also you must pick up some cheese and probably some crackers too. Most WOMAN love a little wine and cheese. Get a quarter pound of cheddar, swiss and maybe some provolone. Or you can grab one of those blocks of cheese.
Wine and Cheese….Yes that’s very classy.
After you have the main stuff, you’ll need a blanket, which you should be able to find in your place. We’re gonna need some cups and a knife. Bring a real steak knife from home. As for the cups, let ‘em be plastic. You don’t want to take a chance and having things break. Plastic will be fine. They should run you a BUCK or TWO.
You don’t really need a picnic basket; so don’t worry that you’ll have to carry that fucking thing around. If you have a carrying cooler, that would be fine. If not, grab a shopping bag, something with handles. No need to spend money on it.
Alright here’s the topper bring her a flower. Not a bouquet of flowers but one.
We suggest the GERBER DAISY. It’s a beautiful symbol of trust plus it’s classy and romantic. If not the Gerber make it a Yellow Rose. Don’t do the red rose. It might scare her off…Hey Women can be wacky that way.
Let’s remember this date is all about YOU and HER. No pressure, no interruptions, no C-Bass, no check to pay or tip to leave. It’s just you and the woman you want to be with. So take her out on a DAY DATE and let the romance run it’s course and the sparks will fly.

LET’S NOT FORGET TO BE A MAN
What does it mean to be a MAN? It means a few things and it has nothing to do with how much cash you have in your pocket or how much of a tough guy you are. So let’s explore.
Most men out there today are very feminine. That’s just a fact of life these days, take a look around. Now this can work towards your advantage as most Woman aren’t looking for another gay best friend. What she wants is a real man. What she needs is a REAL MAN.
Here are some tips on how to treat a lady like she should be treated.
Compliment her. We’ve said it before but it bears repeating. Notice something about her and say it.
Hold the door for her. Do it anytime you walk into a joint and while you’re at it get the car door as well.
If you’re at a restaurant, stand up when she hits the bathroom and when she comes back to the table. At first she might not know what’s going on but that’s because most guys don’t show this much CLASS. Trust us she will appreciate it. So keep it old school and be a MAN.
A real Man isn’t afraid. No need to be walking on egg shells when you’re around this Lady. If you start off the relationship watching every word you say to her, where is that going to get you? It will probably get you married sooner then planed. You’ll probably end up with two kids you didn’t want and ten years later you’ll be asking yourself how did this happen? It happened because you weren’t a MAN. So cut the nonsense and be yourself. Put the chance of misery in your own hands. Don’t leave it up to anybody else. And if she doesn’t like you, let’s find out right now. There’s no need to drag things out and there’s especially no need to waste more of your hard earned money.
How you dress….Yes how you dress is important when it comes to being a man and you don’t have to be rolling in cash to look good. Don’t show up to the date wearing a baseball cap. Don’t be wearing baggy pants with your ass hanging out or some shitty looking t-shirt.
Show some CLASS will you.
This date shouldn’t be a surprise so you shouldn’t have to pull some dirty shirt out of the hamper, c’mon. If you have a date after work please take the time to go home and change. You shouldn’t have to talk about why you have paint all over your clothes or whatever it may be from your job. Go home, take a shower and change your clothes.
And for the love of God please don’t wear SKINNY JEANS.
How this became a fad we will never know. And hey some might think that it’ll make them look hip. They’d be wrong. It won’t. And especially don’t be the old guy in skinny jeans. That’s just awful. No real man wears skinny jeans. In fact no man at all should be wearing skinny jeans. It’s enough already. If you do have some skinny jeans do everybody a favor and burn them or just throw them out but please don’t wear
If you want to be a real man than don’t be afraid to take charge. Not everything has to be a group effort. Take the lead most woman appreciate that. For example: When at a restaurant, order the wine. Don’t hesitate, be a MAN.
BE A GENTLEMAN
DON’T WEAR SKINNY JEANS
Until the next time-PEACE & LOVE
Where Not to Take Her
Here’s a little fact of life, it’s hard to take a lady out and not spend money.
But that’s why we’re here, We’re here to show you how to date on a budget.
Good day once again, we are the JACKSON BROTHERS
And we’re here to show you how to spend the least amount of money on a date and still enjoy yourself.
Last week we told you to check out HAPPY HOUR as a first date option. Knowing where to go is important but what might be more important is where not to go.
That brings us to WHERE NOT TO TAKE HER...
Let’s start with the WINE BAR.
Sure we love our wine and there’s nothing better then sharing a glass or two with a beautiful woman. The wine bar though is not the way to go especially if the funds are low. Yes the wine bar sounds like a good idea, it sounds classy and romantic but don’t be fooled. The fact is… It’s a money trap.
It’s a little place we like to call gimmick Ave.
First off there’s usually no glass of wine under 10 bucks. So right there you know this ain’t your place. If they do have something under 10 it’s probably shit. Then to make it worse they measure out the wine with a corporate eye. They give you a nice healthy wine glass and fill it just under the half way mark. God that pisses us off. It’s just flat out insulting. If you do find yourself at the WINE BAR you will be tempted to try a few different wines, maybe even do a flight. Don’t get sucked into all that. That’ll just end up costing you DOLLARS. Get a bottle and cut your losses. If you’re only there for a short while you might get lucky and only be out 50 BUCKS but if you stick around you’ll probably have to order apps and that just leads to more wine, which means you’ll be spending over a 100 bucks and that we just can’t have. Not when you’re on a budget.
So if the funds are low you’re better off just staying away. That’s right. just stay away from the WINE BAR.
Here’s a few other places that won’t necessarily cost you big dollars but it will cost you time and your TIME is valuable. Remember that, so use it wisely. Plus none of these places will progress the DATING process so make sure you stay away during the first few dates. The goal for dating at least when it’s new is to make a CONNECTION. These places won’t help you at all. All you get is distraction with no interaction and that just ain’t right.
If you’re married or in a 3 year relationship or you just don’t want to talk to her, well then the movies is a good way to kill a couple of hours. But it will cost you. Two tickets will run you at least 20 bucks. Then you have to get the giant soda, the giant popcorn, maybe even some Twizzlers. You’ll end up spending 50 bucks before the movie even starts and then what? Then to continue the night you’ll probably have to take her out to get something to eat. More DOLLARS being spent. For the night you most likely will be out over a 100 BUCKS. NO. This is just stupid. We won’t have it. Especially this early in the dating process. AVOID THE MOVIES.
PLAYS and IMPROV SHOWS
Here’s a few things a few things about plays and improv shows……Maybe …Maybe you get lucky and see a good play but not likely and especially not on a budget. It will be a friend of hers or somebody she knows doing a play. AVOID it. And IMPROV shows well…Besides usually being awful, they’re just a TIME TRAP. And you won’t get to know the woman any better. Plus you might get pissed at her for dragging you to these types of things. AVOID IMPROV.
Let’s talk about NIGHTCLUBS.
Nightclubs are just a bad idea. We should just end it there but let’s get into it a bit. You go to these clubs to pick up woman, so why would you take a date there? You wouldn’t and you shouldn’t. The drinks are over priced and then you got some guy creeping in there buying your girl a drink while you take a piss. Could end in a fight. Who knows? You shouldn’t be in that situation. Plus all the other ladies in the club are dressed to well…..Show off what they’re working with. And you’re a man so you’ll probably be looking and you’ll probably get caught looking. AVOID NIGHTCLUBS.
Here’s one more thing, AVOID hanging out with her friends. Especially early on.
This does nothing for you but put pressure on you and who needs that. Dating is hard enough as it is. Plus it will end up costing you more DOLLARS. You’ll get roped into buying her friends a round or two just to look like a good guy. Don’t get sucked into that nonsense. So you’ll be spending money and getting judged by ladies who are jealous cause they’re not on a date or they’re just plain HATERS. It’s a no win situation.
AVOID her friends.
WHEREVER HER FRIENDS ARE-STUPID

Until the next time-PEACE & LOVE
The first date, happy hour.
Living paycheck to paycheck sucks, we all know that.
It especially sucks if want to date. But dating doesn’t have to be expensive if you do it right.
Hi there, we’re the JACKSON BROTHERS and what we are here to do is to show you how spend the least amount of money while dating. It’s a simple approach to an age old problem, dating when the funds are low.
Now of course you’re going to have to spend some money, come on…. That just goes with the territory. No way around that, but what we’re going to do is show you how to spend the least amount of cash as possible. We’ll show you how to work every situation to your advantage, how to provide the right scenery and the right vibe to allow the sparks to fly and the romance to flow.
There’s a few things you’ll need to know in order to proceed and it won’t cost you a dime. So pay attention.
Here’s four words you’ll need to live by.
Four simple words that will mean everything in your dating life. So take it in and lets move on.
The First Date: HAPPY HOUR
With the first date you don’t really know what you’re getting into. Oh you think you might but the truth is you don’t. Trust us on this. So there’s no reason to get burned for
a lot of cash. That’s why HAPPY HOUR is your best bet. Happy Hour? Yes that’s right and here’s why.
First it’s a little more casual, more relaxed. The stakes don’t seem as high. Now because this is your first date you’ll want to meet her there. That way if things don’t go as planned you won’t be tied down, you’ll be free to go when you please. Hey hope for the best but be ready for the worst. This is the dating world after all.
When it comes to picking the place to meet up make sure YOU suggest it. Women do like a man with CONFIDENCE. They do tend to like a man who knows what he’s doing. So even if you don’t FAKE IT. If she does suggest a place play it off and say that sounds good but I’ve been dying to try this other place. Another reason for this is that you want to get the lovely lady out of her comfort zone. No need to go to her local hangout where she knows the bartender. You don’t want to run into any of her co-workers but most importantly you don’t want to run into bad prices. So do your research. No need to get blindsided and spend a lot of dough. Let’s remember this is the FIRST DATE, so spending a lot of dough would be like getting kicked in the nuts and nobody likes getting kicked in the nuts. Hey at least we don’t.
Here’s the thing about spending money on dates, especially with someone you don’t really know. When you spend you expect and on the first date you shouldn’t expect much. When you do you set yourself up for failure. So be loose but be a gentleman and always show CLASS.
Now that you met her at the place of YOUR choosing, find a way to compliment the young lady. You don’t need to wait for that magic moment because you’re the one making the magic and there’s no better time then right now. Look at her and see where she put some time and effort in and compliment her. It’s that simple. Now is she shows up looking like a slob like she just rolled out of bed or she just got out of the gym, well you know where you stand and that’s why you met her there, just incase you need to make that fast getaway. Hey lets hope she looks good and carries herself well but if not you’re prepared.
Order drinks: BUT DON’T DO SHOTS
This is important. Shots are a waste of money. Let’s say that again. Shots are a waste of money. Strictly amateur hour. There’s no need for it. Plus it could lead you to getting sloppy drunk. There’s no need to get sloppy drunk on the first date. You must always stay in CONTROL. If things go well you should have many a drunken night with this lady but it shouldn’t be on the first date. Now if that’s what she’s into, if she likes getting sloppy drunk all the time. Well that’s a decision you’ll have to make for yourself. We’d advise against it. Been there done that.
Because it’s that time of the day you will have to order food. Don’t get scared we’re just talking APPS. That’s why you’re at HAPPY HOUR. Order apps. Apps should be half price and no need to order too much. Two appetizers should do. Two apps that you can both share. Remember sharing is ROMANTIC and romance should always be on your mind. So now you’re not just drinking, you’re drinking, eating and getting familiar. Food will help you get to know her likes, dislikes and all that type of shit. Remember keep things flirty. You’re on a date, you’re not hanging out with your buddy watching the game.
The goal of the night shouldn’t be to get in her pants and get yourself laid. What we’re doing here is talking about dating. We’re not talking about trying to get some tail. That’s someone else’s gimmick. What you’re trying to find out on the first date is if you want to see this person again. If you want to invest your time, emotions and most importantly your MONEY. A kiss good night will probably mean more in the long run so keep that in mind.. Let’s be honest here and this may even sound stupid but it’s true. When you sleep with a chick right off the bat chances are you won’t see her again. Even if you both had a hell of a time. See it does sound stupid but 9 times out of 10 it’s the truth. Who knows why? It might be shame, embarrassment or something dating back to her childhood. Hey we don’t have time to get into all that and neither do you. So whatever it may be if you like this Woman, if you think this could lead somewhere then PATIENCE is the key.
So let’s remember a few things before you get out there. Be CONFIDENT, she agreed to go out with you so feel good about that.
Stay in CONTROL. No need to get sloppy drunk. Don’t do shots.
Always show CLASS. Be a gentleman, there’s a shortage them out there these days.
And have some PATIENCE. It’s only the first date for Christ’s sake, Besides you never know she could be worth it.
Alright that’s it for now. Come back next time and we’ll tell you where not to take her.
See you then and remember don’t let your wallet run your love life.
