Calculating the true cost of a date.

Asylum had me make a chart of a statistician’s CBA for modern dating. And then they killed the feature, which — since it’s someone else’s work, I can’t recycle on you elsewhere and pretend I made it specifically for CHEAP DATE QUARTERLY. So enjoy this Bankshot-exclusive chart that may be news to you, unless you’re Ian Stanczyk.

Our buddy Ian Stanczyk recently broke out the actual cost of dating, but we here at Asylum have trouble with complex concepts like “opportunity costs,” “disposable income,” and “real-life woman.” To make things simpler, we rendered his ten-dollar, fancy-pants statistics into a simple graph for the average nerd.
