A man should ALWAYS cook something WITH his date...the whole thing from start to finish..together.
If you two can enjoy this time together, working together, talking, deciding, (laughing!!!!)...then you've got a shot at a relationship.
AND...you get a meal. SO. What's NOT to like?
OK. So WHAT to cook..was THAT the question?
Homey, ya gotta trust me on this. It doesn't matter WHAT you cook. What matters is, do you and Ms. Date share a Happy Meal?.... or is it just...Hormones for One?
When she comes over..invite her to the fridge, the pantry. Then ask her to join you in an adventure for just the two of you that can NEVER be repeated. Invite her to talk about the foods she likes. You too.
Eventually the hunger leads you both. Listen to this OLD GUY. I cook. And...I know.
If she says, "You do it."
Run to the door and open it quick. It's my ex-wife. She'll understand. And you...will thank me.
