Win Her Over With Food
In the quest to win a woman, food can be your best ally – or worst enemy. What’ll it be?
Modern courtship revolves around eating and drinking,and we’re judged on not only where we go and what we order but how we conduct ourselves over drinks, at the dinner table, and in the kitchen.
Exhausting? It doesn’t have to be. Deploy these rules in the crucial early stages, and you’ll telegraph confidence and charisma – and she’ll come looking for seconds.
Be a decider
Don’t be a wishy-washy 21st-century boy. Women are looking for Don Draper with a little less Brylcreem, and when it comes to dating, that means being decisive about plans. Don’t worry, she won’t see your taking charge as alpha male tactics – she’ll see it as a sign of your interest. And unless you’ve both bought into schoolyard tropes of The Game, that’s exactly what you want.
The same holds true on the actual date. If you’re halfway through a drink by the time she walks in the door, flag down the bartender as she slides off her coat. And that means being ready to order for both of you. Find out her favourite drink and ask the bartender to create a new variation on that; any decent mixologist will rise to the task.
At dinner, suggest a couple of appetisers to share. Then order them before inviting her to order her own main course. Think of it as showing off your hunter-gatherer abilities. And always have a game plan for after dinner: assume the meal will be a success, and have a nearby bar scouted out where you can continue the evening.
