Is it a bad idea to cook for someone on a first date? First ever date, on fucking valentines day, and I forgot to grab a reservation anywhere. Pls respond. I'd probably end up making chicken parm or some basic bitch pasta like carbonara.

not if you have a wine and clean your house and make the atmosphere nice. Atmosphere is everything. Don't go dark on the first night, too intimidating. Also having her at your house for the first date might be walking a thin line. It might be too intimate for her too fast. Or it might seem creepy because she doesn't know you well and you won't be in a public place she can bail if she ends up being too uncomfortable.
Keep the lights on, set the table nice, and fresh flowers on the table, off to the side but not in the middle, are great. Also have a movie ready to watch or even a video game to play, mario party or that amiibo animal crossing game are cute and not heavy on her if she doesn't play for after dinner.
good luck anon
I think it's a great idea.
Make sure you have pudding pops for dessert.
I fucking love carbonara, but I don't know how you americucks make it tho. I'd go with it if it's also really good in America, but generally No, it's not a bad idea. I think it's kind of even more romantic tbqh. As >>26464435 said, just don't give her a sandwich or a can of tuna and you'll be fine.
I forgot to mention I am an okay cook, normally make my own food and all that shit.
Yeah I didn't even consider this, thanks robot. I guess I'll continue looking for a place.
And no, though the kitchen and dining room are open so I just assumed we could continue talking while I cooked.
Normie here. I cooked for my gf the first day we met I cooked for her. We fucked hard and long that night. Vietnamese girl. Tight as fuck, and still is.
So yeah, if you're good at it, do it.
Y'all like curry? I've had some success with mild red curries early on in relationships. It tastes complex and awesome and is pretty easy to pull off (curry paste, fish sauce, coconut milk a little sugar and some choice vegg along with corresponding protein). BTW.. cooking for someone implies you are either having them over or going there. Might be kind of a strong/creepy move for a first date. What's the weather like? Is a picnic an option?
Depends on the quality of your food and your cooking skills. If you can cook some really nice lobster or fancy pasta stuff you'll be okay, but if you try to server cereal and milk you're fucked.
