When you love food and you find you’ve hooked up with someone for foodie dates, it might seem like the perfect match.
No problem to decide where to go on a date, right?
Just go out to dinner and enjoy!
But if you’ve met on singleandmature.com or any other dating site, you still need to inject a bit of imagination into these dates.
The first thing to consider is, do you both like the same kinds of food?
Suppose he’s a Thai food enthusiast while she adores Chinese?
Or what if one half of the couple loves plain cooking while the other can’t stand anything if it’s not spicy?
If this relationship is going to work, you’ll have to have to respect each others’ food choices, while enjoying the kind of food you love.
Here are some date ideas for foodies who’ve just hooked up and want to enjoy food together while getting acquainted.
Take Turns To Choose The Restaurant For Foodie Dates
Perhaps you are dating an older lady, and you adore fried chicken, while your cougar dating partner prefers tapas?
Just like your dating tastes, food tastes differ. But, believe me, there’s a way.
So when you plan eating out, take turns to pick the restaurant.
Spanish food one evening and Italian another.
Or whatever cuisine you fancy.
Better still, pick a restaurant which has music and dancing.
Work up an appetite and keep the calories at bay.
Discover new cuisine and have fun too.
Pick A Restaurant Out Of Both Of Your Comfort Zones
So, you meet for one night stands, but neither of you have ever tried Greek food before?
Now’s your chance! Find a restaurant which serves food which neither of you have eaten before.
Dating is hungry work, so have fun discovering new foods together.
The discussion afterwards should be scintillating, and hopefully interesting enough to inspire a nightcap.
One thing to remember.
Some people are squeamish about certain types of food.
Some can’t stand beef, others hate pork.
Some people avoid meat.
Some are allergic to gluten.
So check in advance to ensure that the food served in the restaurant is agreeable to both of you to ensure a great evening.
We don’t want allergic reactions ruining your foodie dates!

Eating out can be expensive, especially when you factor in wine, car parking, etc.
Check around for restaurants offering seasonal or anniversary discounts.
Enjoy eating out and save some cash.

It’s a good way to get your date to meet your folks.
This could take your relationship to another level
