Gentlemen, if you’re looking to completely sweep your girl off her feet, then you’ve come to the right place! Women love a man that can cook and if you’re willing to put a little effort into planning a romantic evening at home filled with wine, delicious food, and of course…dessert; we promise you’ll have this girl wrapped around your finger in no time.
Not the best cook? No worries, you don’t have to be a professional chef to impress her. It’s all about the effort and showing her your romantic side. So, go ahead and make her night (and yours) by following a few key steps.
Really take some time to think about how you can create the best dining experience. If you have your own favorite dish you’d like to make, go with that. Otherwise, if you want to try something new, make sure you know which foods she hates so you can avoid those at all costs. Also, you may want to have a trial run to test out the recipe. Just in case it turns out like shit, ya know?
Choose a dish that’s small and light so she’s able to save her energy for later. If you load up on carbs and cheese, you may end up passing out in front of the TV instead of enjoying your evening together. You can do that any night of the week, but this evening shouldn’t end with Netflix, bro.
Bring out the matching dishes for this one. There’s nothing less romantic than serving a fancy meal on paper plates. If you’re serving champagne or wine, pick up a few nice glasses if you don’t already own any so the ambience feels a little more elegant. She’ll appreciate you for going the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect for her.
Setting the Mood
Light some candles and dim the lights. The candles on the dinner table should not be scented so it doesn’t interfere with the food you worked so hard on, but place some scented ones in nearby areas to help set the mood for later.
Pick some music that you both enjoy and play it low so you can still have a conversation with each other. Play something mellow so it adds to the relaxation. Make a rule that you both put your phones on silent and place them where it’s not tempting to reach for them so you can avoid distractions.
At this point, she’s already very impressed with your efforts, and will want to show you her efforts as well. As much as you both probably want to try that chocolate cheesecake you ordered, you’ll most likely abandon the dining room for other activities. Keep something sweet and light on hand, like chocolate covered strawberries.
So what are you waiting for? Start channeling your inner chef now so you can plan the ultimate evening for your lady. We promise it will be worth it!
