Here's What A Romantic Date Costs In Big Cities Around The World
Julie Zeveloff   | Apr. 5, 2013, 2:10 PM

Romance isn't cheap.  But in some places, a night out on the town is a lot more expensive than in others.

Deutsche Bank recently came out with its second "The Random Walk" report, which looks at the changing prices of goods and services around the world.

We're taking a closer look at how major cities fared on the report's "cheap date" ranking and highlighting a couple of specific items in the index.

SYDNEY: A date will set you back $229.77

Delivery of a dozen roses: $139

2 movie tickets: $35.90

Cab ride (3 km): $11.79

A "cheap date" includes sending a standard bouquet of roses, cab rides, soft drink, pizza, two movie tickets, and a couple of beers.

My wife and I like the movies. As seniors now, we get tickets for anywhere between $3 and $8 each.

A modest meal at Rubio's, or Chipotle serves us fine. Cost under $20.

If it stopped there, great. But the sweet bride of 45 years insists on popcorn, and I usually get some kind of candy. Add another $5 to $10.

Total cost anywhere from around $30 to $45.
