Food and Dating
First dates can really be nerve-wracking because you have to make a lot of preparations. It is one event where you can be totally romantic but not really spontaneous. You have to think of a place where you and your date can get to know each other well and you have to have a general idea of what you want to do. You may want to avoid an awkward conversation like this: ?What are we going to do?? ?I don?t know. What do you want to do?? This shows lack of creativity and confidence. And nobody would want to go out with a person like that. There are many things that you can do on a date. You can just loosen up and get a drink and share the good spirit that alcohol brings. Or if both of you are art enthusiasts you might probably hit it off in a Museum where you can both take in beauty and learn each others? preferences. Another option is taking a stroll at the beach. Whatever your date plans are, food can never be missed. They say that the road to someone else?s heart is thru one?s stomach but let?s save the cooking session for your next date when you are already comfortable with each other. For now, I will help you pick a restaurant that will not only serve good food but will also allow for a pleasant interaction. People find it hard to look for the best restaurant because they really want to impress their dates; they overlook the places that they are familiar with. Eating in a new and unknown restaurant is good because they get to share and taste the food for the first time together. On the other hand, eating in a restaurant that you?re familiar with has its own advantages as well so long as the people in that restaurant don?t know you by first-name basis or else, your date might get a little bit uncomfortable. One advantage in choosing a familiar restaurant is that you know how much the food costs which is also an important factor because you have to pick a restaurant that you can afford. One of the most important factors that we should consider whether you are on a date or just eating by yourself is the kind of service that the restaurant provides. Remember those times when the crew neglects you or stages a bad attitude? It is really annoying it makes the food tastes sour as well. Besides, you and your date need privacy so neglect and attitude are the last things that both of you will need. Setting is also another factor because it can affect the mood and define what will happen in the course of dating. That is why most people prefer restaurants `with eye-catching structures like fountains and flower beds. Aside from these, it is also important to think about the lighting. Make sure that it is not too dark so you will be able to see each other; in the same way that the light should not be too blinding. And last but not the least pick a restaurant where both of you and your date can eat. Ask your date ahead of time about preferences and dislikes. One of the best places is a Japanese restaurant where they cook the food in front of the guests and involve them in the process that way you will both enjoy and have something to talk to over dinner.
