Taking your date to a fancy eating joint? Sounds great! But have you made reservations? Popular joints are crowded more often than not, so it would be smart to make reservations well in advance than naively expect room in the restaurant.
In case you cannot go in person to make reservations you could also make them over the phone. Some eateries insist on identification to sieve out crank callers. Credit card numbers serve as good identification marks in such cases.
While making reservations also find out if the restaurant has a dress code or if the evening is earmarked for a special celebration. Dress accordingly and also make sure that your date is well informed about the occasion and the prescribed dressing style.
One reason why many people don’t date is because it is expensive. But who said that only a meal at an expensive restaurant or a movie show makes a date. There are several inexpensive options you could try out: for instance, have you ever thought of checking out the tourist sights in your city together? That could be very romantic. Or just try taking a long walk along some quiet, not-too-crowded road. Or visit the local park. If you put your mind to it, you’re bound to come up with better ideas of your own. Remember, dating is all about spending time together, not ‘spending’ (money) together.
Are meals at an avante garde restaurant or a highbrow eatery measures of your love? Is food what you cherish the most, over and above your date that is?
Food happens to be just a side dish so do not heap all that undue and unnecessary importance on it. It would be interesting and believe me, very happening if you can cook up a meal for your date. Two of you cooking together also sounds like a great way to enjoy a date. Cook up your favourite meal and enjoy it with an all time favourite film coupled with wine, caviar, chocolate … ………the works…all while you are cozily tucked up at home… now that sounds like a great evening together!
