There are many activities and places for a date, and they offer various possibilities. To get to know each other better and have a peaceful talk is a common dinner. If you go together into a restaurant, not much can go wrong in terms of the food of course. However, once in the full restaurant, the conversation tends to be superficial. So why not cook at home? With our tips, your dinner date is guaranteed!
1. Ask beforehand about allergies and preferences
If you and your date do not decide together what is to be cooked and/or eaten, then you should definitely clarify beforehand, whether certain foods are better to avoid due to allergies or aversion.
2. Know your cooking skills
Appreciate yourself well. If it is a challenge for you to open a noodle pack properly, a dinner date is not the right time to learn how to cook. So keep the menu simple and do not try to make a difference. If, however, you are a secret professional, do not be afraid of elaborate dishes – show what you’ve got! If you want to be safe and you have time: cook once for a sample.
3. Avoid certain ingredients
A Mexican bean stew or a hearty onion cake may well be delicious, but there are foods that carry an afterlife with them. Legumes, cabbage, and too many onions and other unpleasant body sounds are anything but ideal if you just get to know each other and want to spend a relaxing evening in togetherness.
4. Use certain ingredients
So some foods are considered an aphrodisiac, so they have a stimulating effect on sexual behavior. If oysters do not appeal, the supermarket can also reach chilies, artichokes, dark chocolate or strawberries.
5. Care for a nice ambiance
As you invite your date to your home, take care of order and cleanliness. So take a vacuum cleaner and mop in the hands and brush rather a bit more than too little. Also, the dirty laundry should not lie in some corners of the apartment. A bouquet of flowers and some candles on the table provide a pleasant and cozy atmosphere. Under no circumstances should music be missing in the background. Maybe your dinner date has already told which band he or she likes to listen to. If you do exactly that, then it shows immediately that you have attentively listened!
6. Leave the perforated jogging pants in the closet
If you spend the evening at home, it is not necessarily the place where you spend a lot of time in styling. However, today you’re not alone. So dress as if you meet with your date in a restaurant. If you tend to be clumsy, do not wear a white shirt.
7. Have an emergency plan for your dinner date
Even if you’re a safe cook, if the food burns because of your nervousness, then it’s no drama. For security, you should have two freezers or the telephone number from the delivery service and the situation simply with humor. Humor is when you laugh anyway. And if your food is salty, then it shows that you are apparently in love!
