We may not admit it but nowadays people tend to pay to be in a relationship. People who are in new relationships especially the “boy children” tend to spend a lot of money in the bid of impressing the girl-child. I am not saying it is a bad thing to do, but I believe there are other cost-effective ways to impress a lady. In some events, it is even more effective than the expensive dates. If you carefully listen Sia’s “cheap thrills” you will understand that sometimes we just need very simple things to be happy. You do not need big money or luxurious car to be truly happy with your lady. However, this does not mean that you should not spend big on your lady. If you have money and want to spend then why not?
