More singles are saving money by pre-dating

For those in the dating crowd, there's a new trend some have heard of and others have not. It's called pre-dating.

What is it? It's when a girl or guy essentially gets to know you over a brief time period, meaning instead of spending a ton of money on someone you don't know you even like. 

Once they pass the pre-dating stage, then you formally date and start spending money and investing in the relationship.
