  • Advice please

    Is it okay to ask a girl over for a home cooked dinner on a first date? I understand the neutral space thing (cafe or drinks) but I've not much of a bar or restaurant person. My ideal date would be a hike but it's cold out.

    Should I make steak or something lighter?

    it's a first date, so unless you two have visible fireworks sparkling i wouldn't go all out on dinner making
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

      I think it depends. Do you already know her? Are you two both foodies?

      Personally, if a guy that I didn't already know, or a good friend hadn't vouched for, asked me to his place for dinner on a first date, I'd run for the hills. It's a security thing.

        I already know her, we've chatted 3 or 4 times (in person) in a non-date setting. She's already agreed to a date, I just don't know what to ask her to do. Not sure if she's a foodie or not (but what girl isn't?)

          Oooh, lots aren't. Particularly when it comes to nice, juicy, bloody steaks. (sad, but true)

          Do you mini-golf? Maybe find an indoor course, since it's a bit cold for outside. Think outside the box.

              Do that. Then videotape her reaction to post for our amusement.

                Nope. She doesn't know you well enough, most likely and you have no clue what she likes to eat.

                  If you've spoken in person a few times and she's still open to a date, invite her over - if it were me, I'd go.

                  I would say you can't really go wrong with a nice roasted chicken, a big salad and maybe some oven-roasted squash on the side. Pretty standard fare, foodie or not. And then you'll have a nice carcass left over for bone broth. Or a creepy shrine after you're done with all those candles and photos of her.

                    Of all those things I think the videotaping would be least conducive to a second date.

                    Mini-golf? I went on a mini-golf date once and it was such a disaster I'm not even going to tell you what happened.

                    I texted her: "Let's cook dinner or grab a bite." So if she's not comfortable coming over she might pick the bite. Good idea or too wishy-washy?

                    I need some pointers, it's been a WHILE.

                      Is YYC a real place?

                        A while, huh? I guess that brings up the question- how old are you and she? I think that might make a difference here.

                        I wasn't aware that mini-golf could go badly. And I've even been banned from playing by my friends

                        Lemontwisst- nice out of the box thinking. Dinner and creepy shrine-making would be a very memorable date

                          It is - YYC is the airport identifier for the city.

                          As for your other question, my take is that if you asked her for the date, you decide what the date will entail. But she might like that you're looking for her input, too. If she comes back with a non-committal answer, bite the bullet and ask her over. The worst she can do is say no.

                            late 20s, she's a couple years younger. I was fat and on SAD with man-boobs and no job hence a WHILE.

                            Now I'm primal, employed, and running sprints in snowstorms. Though there's much room left for improvement.

                            Unfortunately the PB does not enhance your social skills (maybe I need to get that new book he wrote?).

                            Mini-golf can go very badly.

                              Ask her to choose if she wants to go somewhere, or let you cook for her.
