I thought it was the sweetest thing!
Hope they remembered the old wine bottle with the candle in the neck! (Or just candles, period . . . )

Yes. There was a candle burning, and also a rose from my rose garden.

This would be an unacceptable double standard if such thoughts were expressed by men.

I think this says it all:

If so - what exactly is it that is so enticing or charming or whatever about a man who knows his way around the kitchen and can present you with a yummy and well-presented meal?

And, also - if the alcohol accompanying the dinner is wine, does it matter how he serves you... does a decanter, or does he serving it after briefly explaining the name and type of wine, etc, as a waiter/sommelier would, mean anything?
The kind of wine or the knowledge don't particularly matter to me, but the rest is all great - sweet, romantic, showing effort... and very likely to be rewarded!

His cooking dinner for me would have absolutely no bearing on whether or not I decided to sleep with him.

Frankly, I would be a little uncomfortable having a man prepare a meal for me - I would feel like I had to be doing something. I'd much rather us prepare the meal together - MUCH sexier and far more fun. But the fact that he knows how to cook, and enjoys it, that is a good sign!

I don't care for alcohol with my dinner. And if he pulled the waiter stuff, I'd probably just crack up...sounds too silly and pretentious.

Budweiser!! yuck - a nice 'strong' Viking brew like the Elephant for me.

# Beer type - Strong Pilsner
# Alcohol by volume (ABV) - 7,2%
At 7.2% itís one of the stronger mainstream lagers.

The dude is lame. Cooking is much more sexy when a woman does it.

Usually with a 7.2% ABV I usually think of an Ale. But hey, I would give it a try. I just like to keep it real in America so I drink mostly domestic . Have you tried the new Budweiser American Ale? Tasty .


But to get back on the subject at hand. If my wife wanted me to cook her a fine meal with wine and such, I would do that for her. Maybe suprise her on her birthday maybe. But as for doing it while dating, ahhhhh not my style. I rather take her on a picnic or something. Then afterwards we can be intimate with nature surrounding us .
