Before you gripe about the cost of your last night out, be glad—maybe—that you’re not living among our pals down under: financial behemoth Deutsche Bank just released its “Cheap Date” index, and per the banking giant, Australia reigns as the number one most expensive place to go on a date. By taking into account the cost of standard date stuff—you know, like bouquets of roses and pizza—Deutsche Bank was able to rank major metropolitan cities according to how much it costs to plant seeds of romance in each. Not surprisingly, New York City is high on the list, as is London, where the pound-to-dollar conversion rate is nothing short of laughable.

Don’t worry; Deutsche Bank didn’t forget about us. In fact, we’re on a special, supplemental list: apparently, it’s very expensive to buy cigarettes in Boston. Which is something to think about before you take that special someone out for fair-market-value slice of pizza.
