Prices in Houston

    As with planning any trip, it is very important to have a good knowledge of the local prices in the area you are visiting. This is also true when organizing a date. It could be extremely embarrassing for you to not have enough money! We have done some of the work for you and provided you with the average cost of some of the basics for your time in Houston. If you need to find out more do a quick internet search!

Dating in Houston

  • ⏩  Bottle of water. We all need water and, for many of us, buying it is the only option…especially if we are somewhere new. If visiting a restaurant in Houston you can expect to pay around $1.50 for a 0.33-liter bottle. This is handy to know if you plan on having water at your table during a date! However, if you are looking to pick some water up on your travels or to get rid of that nervous dry mouth before a date you can pick up a 1.5-liter bottle for around $1.43. Keep hydrated without having to take out a small loan!
  • ⏩  Coffee. Most dates, first especially, revolve around one of two date themes…..a meal or meeting for a coffee and a chat to get to know each other better. In Houston, you can expect to pay around $3.99 for a regular cappuccino. This price will vary depending on the establishment you are in and your hot drink of choice. These prices cannot be argued with and you and your date are sure to enjoy your coffee meet-up without worrying about the cost!
  • ⏩  Meal. Going out for a meal is also a classic, early date that allows you both to get to know each other over a delicious meal. Visiting a mid-range restaurant for a three-course meal with your date will cost you around $54. As with coffee, the price of these meals will vary depending on the venue and what you both choose to eat!
  • ⏩  Ice-cream. It can get pretty hot in Houston with highs around 35˚C. What is the best way to cool down on a roasting day? Ice-cream! Small ice cream will cost you around $4 rising to $10+ for a sundae. The more indulgent, and large(! ), your ice cream becomes, the more money you will spend. An ice-cream date is quickly becoming as popular as meeting for coffee or a meal.
  • ⏩  Beer. Maybe you and your date want to meet for something a little stronger and decide to venture into one of Houston’s bars. Unlike many cities, this will not cost you the earth! A pint of domestic draught beer will cost you $5 and an imported bottle (0.33 liter) will cost around $6. A decent bottle of wine will cost around $12. Cocktails and spirits vary in price so be sure to have a quick look at the menu before ordering!

Knowing how much it costs to get around is another important piece of knowledge. It is sensible to have a good idea of which transport mode you plan to take and do some research into how to access them, timetables and prices. Prices can change so be sure to do your research.

Dating in Houston

  • ⏩. Metrorail. The city"s Metrorail is a convenient transport option that can take you all over the city. A single adult fare costs $1.25 which makes it a very affordable option! While this is a good price you must remember that a Metrorail can only take you so far. Make sure you plan what to do on arrival at the closest stop!
  • ⏩. Bus. The local bus service is also priced at $1.25! This service stops at every other corner and is a fantastic choice to get you around the city. It is key to remember that these are reliant on traffic so ensure you leave yourself enough time!
  • ⏩. Taxi. There is a new flat-rate taxi fare in Houston that is viable for all downtown trips. This price is $6 which is a fantastic price for a mode of transport that can take you straight to your destination and can be pre-booked. Despite their direct nature and reasonable price, you need to remember how reliant they are on traffic and plan in enough time to get to your destination.

Dos and Dont's Dating in Houston

Dos
✅  DO be chivalrous! While Houston ladies may appear laid back and relaxed about this they will most definitely notice, and appreciate, you acting like a true gentlemen. This does not mean you have to throw your coat over puddles or demand that you pay for everything. Holding doors open, pulling out chairs and offering to pay are acts that will be greatly appreciated. Also, be understanding if she offers to pay or split the bill!
✅  DO be open and honest. This does not mean that you have to divulge all of your financial, personal or emotional information straight away. This also does not mean you have to talk about all past relationships! Be honest about who you are and act your true self, the rest can come later when a connection has been made.
✅  DO think carefully about the date's destination. A lot of people prepare a date without taking much consideration of what their date will actually enjoy. If it is your first date, or a blind date, you may not know much about your date so play it safe with a coffee or lunch date. However, if possible find out a little bit about your dates interests before planning a date. She will greatly appreciate the effort!
✅  DO be present during the date. Put your phone away and put it on silent (unless you’re on call for something important!). Make sure you listen, digest what she is saying and respond accordingly. This will have a very positive impact on your chances of the date being successful.
Dont's
❌  DON’T worry about taking your date for a meal! You may have heard that the food in Houston is not ideal for dating - sloppy burgers, ribs etc. These can be messy for the tidiest of eaters! However, if you both enter into the fun of the delicious food your date will have a positive from the outset! Don’t take it too seriously and enjoy yourselves….but make sure you don’t eat like a pig!
❌  DON’T arrive drunk or get too drunk while on the date. Your date will not appreciate this and will view this as a lack of consideration for their feelings. You can, of course, enjoy a drink during the date but make sure you do so within reason. This could easily be the making or breaking of a date's success.
❌  DON’T be too needy! Yes, Houston ladies are laid back and may take a day or two to message you but if they are interested they will let you know. If you message repeatedly or are too overbearing you will push her away. The same can be said if you are too distant. It does not work positively if you make her wait before messaging! Be calm and relaxed. If she likes you, or doesn’t, she will let you know.
❌  DON’T waffle on about your ex’s and the reasons you are no longer together. When a connection is made, over a long time, you can open up about relationships of the past. For now, focus on the here and now and concentrate on your positive aspects and developing a connection!

Online Dating in Houston

    Online dating has come such a long way since its conception 26 years ago. Covid-19 has, as odd as it sounds, had a positive impact on online dating as more people turned to the virtual world when the ‘real' world was put on hold. While Tinder is the most popular dating site in Houston you can visit other sites such as eHarmony, Elite Singles, or The League and get on your way to finding love in Houston.  A very popular site for searching for the Ukrainian Woman of your dreams is HTTPS: //slavic-girl.com/ This site allows you to search for your ideal Ukrainian woman and read information about dating. The office-based team will assist you in any way they can from helping you talk with women, aiding in the sending of gifts, and arranging your first meeting! Slavic-Girl offers the option of free chat and paid services. Their primary goal is to find the one for everyone! You can also read about their many success stories with over 700 happy couples being formed and many relationships leading to wonderfully happy marriages.

Dating in Houston

You may have some questions or worries about online dating but fear not! Below are some of the pros of online dating!

  • ✌ Get to know someone before actually meeting them! This is a wonderful aspect of online dating as you can really get a feel for whether a connection is being made before you even meet your prospective date in person.
  • ✌ Silences on a date can be damaging, for both the date and confidence! Online dating takes the fear of this away. Struggling to think of a question or something to say? You can say you need to pop out etc and come back to the chat later.
  • ✌ Letting someone down face-to-face is not an easy thing to do when a connection is not being made. While this is not a lovely aspect to think about, it does mean that you can let another person know you are not feeling a connection without having to see their reaction!
  • ✌ Dating more than one person in the real world is definitely frowned upon! However, it is common knowledge that most people in the online dating world are talking to more than one person. You can keep your options open without offending anyone.
  • ✌ Online sites help you find exactly, or close enough, what you are looking for. You are able to refine your search based on appearance, interests, religion, etc.

 

    Many people ask themselves…’ is it worth the subscription fees? ’ when using a paid site. Others worry about free sites being a scam. To help you make your choice between using a free or paid website read on!

  • While free sites don’t require any payment this does leave them open to people using them for the wrong reasons. On a paid online dating site the people that you are talking to will genuinely want to be there, why would they pay unless they are serious about finding love? Paid sites give you the peace of mind that the people you are conversing with are looking for love, not a cheap laugh or just a one-night stand!
  • Security is paramount. Paid websites offer much tighter security and, more often than not, a dedicated team that will help you throughout your romantic search. Your subscription fee paves the way to finding love by giving you the opportunity to seek assistance and know that who you are talking to is who they say they are. On free sites, it is commonplace that people will often pretend to be someone they are not! It is highly unlikely that someone will pay for the opportunity to pretend to be someone else!
  • Paid websites often screen their members to ensure they are suitable for others to contact. This means that their history etc is explored and if they are deemed to be unsuitable for using the site they are not permitted to do so, thus protecting those who are looking for love.

Socializing in a new area can be very difficult. You may not really know anyone and talking with complete strangers can be a daunting prospect. However, there are ways around this so that you can experience a happy social life. Below are just a few of the different ways you can socialize in Houston. 1. Meetup.com is a wonderful way of meeting like-minded people. You can search for groups in Houston that partake in activities you enjoy - cooking, running, painting, etc. There are also singles groups that you can join. This site allows you to enjoy activities you enjoy while meeting new people in a safe, relaxed environment. You could start off making new friends and, in time, begin to develop more personal relationships. 2. Own a dog? You could head to one of the many dog parks. Your dog will enjoy meeting other dogs and their socializing could help you begin a conversation with another person. These meetings will likely be a regular occurrence and could lead to you both wanting to see each other away from the park. 3. Being physically active is another wonderful way of meeting new people and beginning new friendships while improving your physical and mental well-being. This could be an exercise group, cycling club, or dance class. You could begin making friends with other people who enjoy the same activities as you which could lead to more loving relationships being formed. 4. Are you quite a confident person? Happy to talk to complete strangers? Then a bar could be a very good place for you to meet other people and begin forming friendships that, in time, could lead to romance.

❤️  Why Is Dating So Hard in Houston?

Dating can be difficult anywhere! It is said that there are a few reasons why dating in Houston may be seen as difficult but they are minor issues that are easily ignored or overcome! 1. College football rivalries still exist! Where you went to college can, in some cases, still have an impact on how successful your date goes! 2. A lot of people go to Houston for work which means you could make a connection, start dating, and then she has to be relocated somewhere else! 3. While delicious, Houston food is not exactly ideal when dating. Hot curries, sloppy burgers, and sticky ribs are not easy to eat without making a mess and embarrassing yourself! However, if you are both aware of this it should make the whole experience more fun! 4. The weather will always be against you! Beautiful, sunny skies in the morning and horrendous storms in the afternoon can really change the outlook of your date. Always make sure to have a backup plan when organizing a date so that if the weather starts causing you problems you have something to fall back on. In short, dating is generally as easy or as hard as you make it. Just relax, make the most of each environment and be flexible and you will find that the dating scene in Houston is not as hard as it may appear.

❤️  What Are Top 10 Places to Meet Singles in Houston?

You could meet another single anywhere, at any time. However, if you are actively searching for love then you may want to frequent some of the places mentioned below. There are a few bars for you to consider as well as some other different venues! 1. Want to find your ideal geeky single? Neil’s Bahr is a new venue that has grown in popularity very quickly. Housing-free multicades, an array of comic books, board games, and a great bar is great place for you to meet your future geeky romance. 2. Singles who love nature, a tasty drink, and live entertainment really enjoy visiting Axelrad. The beer garden is home to beautiful flowers and you can choose to sit on lawn chairs, benches, and hammocks. These help you relax even further while listening to live music or a comedian. This is great for singles as it provides a club experience without the intense atmosphere of a club. 3. PJ’s Sports Bar is a wonderful bar for singles to meet. There are many sports bars in Houston but the most friendly is PJ’s. They offer delicious, southern food, indoor and outdoor drinking options, and a relaxed atmosphere. This is the perfect place to meet other singles. 4. Established in 1912 is the Houston Watch Co. This is perfect for singles who enjoy good drinks and a vintage feel. The style and feel are still that of the original era and you can feel the vibes as you walk through the door. Relax and strike up a conversation with the stranger at the bar and you will start a romantic journey that is sure to end successfully. 5. The Vintage Shops on 19th Street are another wonderful place to meet other singles. If you enjoy unusual and vintage things then this is a fantastic place to visit, whether searching for love or just exploring Houston. All of the shop's house hidden treasures, fashion history, and decor history. You and a future date could make a connection while discussing a vintage piece of clothing. 6. The Annual LiveStock show - Yes, we know this may not sound like the ideal place to meet other singles but we assure you it is! The old saying “everything is bigger in Texas” is certainly true and you can witness this in all its glory when you visit the show and see the rodeo. You could spend many days here exploring the stalls and playing games and the best part? The event draws locals and visitors alike in their masses which makes it an ideal event to meet other singles. 7. A Houston museum — There are numerous museums in Houston and museum crawls are growing in popularity. You can use these amazing museums to find singles who are interested in the same things as you such as space (visit the Space Center), archeology (head to the Natural History Museum) or visit more avant-garde museums such as DiverseWorks. You could meet other singles that share your interests, start a conversation and begin making your own history together. 8. Music events happen very often in Houston. A quick internet search will tell you what is coming up. Check out the House of Blues or look for bigger concerts taking place at the Toyota Centre. Music is so emotive and a love for the same genre can bring two souls together. Make a connection as you both sing along to your favorite songs. 9. Exercise classes are the perfect place to meet new people and find other singles who are as interested in keeping healthy as you are. The gym, dance classes, or yoga are perfect places to meet other singles who want to work on their physical and mental well-being. We cannot recommend just one establishment as there are many in the area. Search the internet for those in the particular area you are staying/ living in. 10. Other places offer classes such as cooking, learning a language, or art-related where you can hone your skills or learn a new one. Either way, these places are great for meeting like-minded people for friendship which may also lead to you finding other singles who share your interests. You could meet your ideal single anywhere in Houston as long as you are willing to look. However, if you want to have something in common from the outset it is important you frequent establishments of interest to you!

❤️  Where do Older Singles Meet in Houston?

Normally, when asked where older singles would meet in an area we would list a variety of venues different from those mentioned above. However, Houston is a different matter. Most of the above establishments, events, or classes are just as ideal for older singles as they are younger ones. Many of the venues above are not loud, brash, or ‘young’ people venues and so are perfect for the older single who is looking to meet others and have a good time. Of course, you may still want to venture to places such as a quiet coffee shop such as Campesino Coffee house or join groups such as book clubs or nature walks as a more relaxed way of meeting other older singles. Houston is not the sort of city that boasts a loud and extensive night scene so you are safe in the knowledge that you do not have to head out into the night to find your older singles!
