That classic line, “Feed me and tell me I’m pretty,” is very overused on social media but definitely not untrue. Food makes everything better. I will take a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget meal over a bouquet of flowers any day. The way to a girl’s heart isn’t always through fancy dates and mushy texts. You would be surprised how far free food will get you, boys!
When I’m sad, I eat. When I’m happy, I eat. When I’m mad, I eat. I like snacking on chips when I watch movies and drinking wine and eating cheese while watching the Bachelorette. There is never a time that I will pass up the chance to munch on my favorite foods. So, how can you use food to get to her heart? You make a mental note on what she likes.
Simple things like remembering her coffee order or knowing that she prefers the chunky Kit Kat to the regular one. Knowing that she likes to drink tea in the evening but some evenings definitely call for a glass of wine. These small things are what blossom a blooming romance. Girls who love food will fall head over heels over ice cream dates and chocolate covered almonds on Valentine’s Day.
Food is always a good idea.
Oh, and being able to cook will get you bonus points. I love cooking for my man because there’s something so nurturing and romantic about cooking something wonderful for somebody you love. Cooking together or for one another helps you bond. You learn what each of you likes and dislikes and get to try new things together. As time progresses you no longer have to ask if they want cream or milk in their coffee or how many teaspoons of sugar they want in their tea. It becomes an organic routine that solidifies your relationship. The small things matter and food may seem small, but it is definitely the biggest and easiest way to create a love that lasts.
I know you’re probably reading this and thinking wow this girl is crazy for romanticizing Chicken McNuggets. But think about it, how nice does it feel when your boyfriend or girlfriend knows exactly what you need and when you need it? Having a bad day? They bring you a glass of wine or a beer. Having a good day? You celebrate with your favorite pasta dish or cheesecake for dessert. There is romance in cheese and extra butter.
There is nothing better than coming home from a long day to the person you love and a meal you love. Food keeps the sparks flying and the conversation lively. There is never a dull moment because there is always something new to try. Next time your boyfriend or girlfriend says to you they are craving something, try surprising them with that craving and watch their eyes light up with happiness. It’s the best feeling in the world to provide something so small to somebody and watch how happy it makes them.
Flowers die and chocolate sundaes melt but the thought that went into both lives on. Next time you want to a win a girl over try bringing her to her favourite restaurant or picking up her favourite snack food. Food will continue to the feed the flame of love long after the honeymoon stage is over. Plus, you can never go wrong with a dessert date!
