If you’re taking someone out “on the cheap” in Paris, expect to drop a little over $100.

That’s according to Deutsche Bank’s “Cheap Date Index,” which compares the cost of a simple date – cab fare, McDonald’s burgers, soft drinks, a pair of movie tickets, and a round of beers – across 32 major global cities.

Deutsche Bank priced out the cost in US dollars – it turns out a truly cheap date is hard to come by in some cities.

Here’s how much it’ll cost you for a night of fast food, movies, and beer in the 11 most expensive global cities for daters:
