I’ve always been a practical person, so when I met my girlfriend, I was taken by her ability to stay in and just chill, instead of going out and spending money.
I thought it was a sign of maturity and a good way to save money, and it’s something I’ve come to appreciate even more as we’ve been in a relationship for over a year now.
When we first started dating, we’d go out to dinner and a movie or drinks, but it was always on a budget.
We’d find cheap restaurants, and more often than not, we’d just stay in and cook dinner. She’d pop in a movie and we’d cuddle up on the sofa to watch it.
As our relationship has grown, I’ve come to really appreciate the fact that she’s content to stay at home.
We still go out for dinner or to a movie every now and then, but it’s not something we do all the time. Instead, we’ll take walks around the neighborhood, or just sit at the balcony and talk.
When we do go out, it’s never an extravagant night. We’ll go to the nearest mall to get some beers and then go to the grocery store for dinner, and I’ll cook.
We’ll talk about our day, and then when we’re done, we’ll head back home.
It’s been so nice to have a girlfriend who’s content to stay in and relax. I can’t think of anything more romantic than that.
We’ll make dinner together, or she’ll cook while I clean up the kitchen. We’ll play a board game or watch a movie. We’ll talk about our day, and sometimes we’ll just sit in silence, enjoying each other’s company.
I’m so lucky that my girlfriend likes to stay at home and chill instead of going out and spending money.
We can still go out and have fun, but it doesn’t have to be an expensive night. We can just stay in and have a good time, and I love that.
It’s a great way to save money and to just enjoy each other’s company. It’s something I’ll always appreciate.
