Welcome to Plus One, a funny web series that explores my thoughts and opinions on important issues of the day, but from a plus size perspective.  Sounds fun, right?

In this, my second episode, I offer some much needed advice to men who want to date quality women without breaking the bank.

Times are tough, and I get it.  I’ve seen several of my male friends go the easy route when it comes to dating women.  It seems that many guys think that cheap coffee outings and “Netflix and Chill” are their only options. Consider yourself (and your stressed pockets) in luck, as my tutorial offers tips on how to date without taking out a payday loan.
