Summer is a great time for a new romance to blossom. If you’re the kind of woman who likes to be swept off her feet on a date, then summer is the perfect time to get out there and join the dating game.

When trying to reel in a new sugar daddy, don’t be surprised if he’s a little more generous in the warmer months. According to a recent survey conducted by a dating web site, 64% of single men admit that that they tend to spend more money in the summer to impress a woman they’re dating.

Contrary to popular belief, money isn’t always the driving force behind why younger women prefer older men. Financial stability is appealing for younger women dating older men, but not all women are influenced just by money. In fact, 72% of single women who took the same survey said that they have been on successful dates that involved a free activity, and 68% said that they actually prefer a less expensive date.

What do you think: If you started dating a much older man, would you want him to go all out and splurge on your dates, or would you prefer something fun but more low-key and inexpensive?
