One Man Spent £1,000 On 23 Dates In 30 Days

In our series Keep The Receipts, we track the extravagant costs of everyday living, as well as the less-common expenses tied to other life moments.
We first spoke with a man who spent more than $700 on 14 dates over 30 days. Next, we talked to a woman who spent roughly one-third of that on dating in the same timeframe. We also spoke to a woman who moved across the country, from New York to Los Angeles.
Today, we talk to a non-monagmous medical resident who went on nearly 25 dates across 30 days. He discussed his thoughts on dating in New York City, and how gender, money, and romance intersect.
The following interview has been condensed for clarity and length.
