    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 wouldn't run for the hills, but I'd definitely say no. Making dinner for a woman is a lovely gesture, but get to know her a bit first. Meet her at a teahouse or a coffee shop. I always made it a rule to meet on neutral territory first; maybe by dates 3-4 (if you hit it off), then invite her home.

    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.
