What to Make to Impress Your Date (Guy Version)

7 bank-friendly dishes for romancing nearly every kind of lady


Fixing a homemade dinner for your date can be one of the most exhilarating (and terrifying) prospects in a budding relationship. A successful night of entertaining in the kitchen can be had not necessarily by getting everything right, but by coming across like you’re in control even if something goes awry. To help you get there, try to slice, dice, chop, and mix as much as you can ahead of time, so you have only a few last-minute details to iron out once she arrives. Creativity and a personal touch will help you win points, but what if you’re not sure what to put on the menu?

To help get you started, we’ve paired seven affordable main dishes and sides — like a delicate roast chicken, smoky pulled pork, and pasta carbonara — to her personality type. If nothing else, remember this: have two bottles of white wine in the fridge and one bottle of red at the ready for wherever the evening may lead.
