It usually takes just one date in New York City to prove how expensive it can be to maintain a social life in a busy metropolitan.
A new study by Deutsche Bank/Match.com breaks down the cost of a simple night out on the town around the world. It’s still more common for men to foot the bill, but women spend a lot of cash preparing for the date itself – 65 per cent drop at least $50 to get dolled up beforehand.
The priciest place to mate has to be Tokyo, where the $234 tab for a date night beats New York by about $50, and New Delhi by a whopping $150. Roses must be hard to come by in Japan because a dozen will set love birds back a cool $111.
The cheapest city to woo your mate turns out to be Sao Paulo, Brazil, where date night runs a little more than $151.
