Everybody gives me a hard time about being single, but do you have any idea how expensive dating has become? According to a new study, the average person spends over $17,000 on dating in their lifetime. That's because it takes, on average, 13 first dates, 11 romantic dinners and 7 awful dates before finding Mr. or Ms. Right.
Then once you've found them, you're just getting started! Couples, on average, spend $5,700 on each other that first year of steady dating. Once engagement happens you might as well glue the credit card to your fingers.

The truth is, I don't need to spend money on my dates. I just use my world-famous pick up lines.
