The way to a woman’s heart, is through her stomach (have a “cook-together” date)

Not that I have really got to do this yet, except for a dozen or so times in my head, but I think a date of just hanging out in the kitchen, preparing some food together, drinking a little wine and eating some "while we cook" appetizers could be a helluva fun date.

But I suppose I'll get there when I get a real kitchen, where I can spread out and do some real damage, like my outdoor tropical dream kitchen, and perhaps a real girl would help also LOL!!!

There's no need to have a lecture on nutrition during the date, (I know when to lecture and when to relax and enjoy the moment), because I think the taste and other positive effects of quality real food say more than I ever could.


Furthermore, I find that real food, fresh organic veggies, and fresh cut organic herbs give the body a certain "vibration" as I call it, sending signals to the brain that it is "well pleased" with what it has been given.


Naturally and progressively, those brain signals will create a "positive addiction" to quality healthy foods, just as the body creates an addiction to junk foods. The body will start to speak to you about the fact that it likes quality food. Plus, you'll find that the taste of quality foods blows the taste of junk food away.


It all contributes to a great atmosphere, to just relax, unwind, and recharge from a long week.


A female friend of mine once told me she had a restaurant dinner date where the guy had his Bluetooth headset on his head at the dinner table during the date, and she was compelled to asked him "could you please take that off".


He unwillingly took it off, after answering a call or two.


If the Mayan calendar doesn't signal the end of civilization, then this type of behavior surely does.


What better way than cooking to get us back to that seemingly lost art of real communication and real human interaction?


It's not that hard to cook a truly tasty quality meal. You don't need to be a master chef. What would you cook? Come on fellas, you can't expect me to do all the work here. However, since I was the one to let the genie out of the bottle, here's a suggestion.

If you like fish, and can find some Chilean Sea Bass from a store that supports certified sustainable fishing practices, it is incredible!! Just fry in medium heat in half inch of olive oil on stove in a pan, continuously turning. It tastes so vibrant, I only need Pink Himalayan Salt and coarse ground pepper.

… the same time the lady can cut some veggies for a "funky psychedelic salad", as I call them.

Maybe a bottle of Pinot Gris and some appetizers while you are cooking and conversating, getting the picture here?

Humphrey Bogart once made a pretty crude joke in an old movie when speaking of an engine that wouldn't start, and to get it going, it needed to be fed some gasoline, he said, "An engine is like a woman, you don't feed her, she won't do nothing!!!"

I think a more "polished and refined" modern man can smooth out Bogart's brash mentality into a more elegant thought process, by just initiating some quality cook-together time. Those quality ingredients help her keep that bodyfat off, give her fresher looking skin, shining hair, nice nails, and overall vibrance. We men know women want these things, and if we think about it, we want the the same things for the ladies!! See, we're all on the same page here. Everybody's happy. ~stay healthy~
