    Inviting Over and Cooking Dinner as First Date?

    I’m up in the air about this. How do you ladies and gents feel about inviting her over and cooking her dinner as a first date? I’m in college, have a dorm to myself, and don’t have a car. In the year+ I’ve been single and casually dating, I’ve pretty much made my date having a car a prerequisite. This girl that recently caught my eye, doesn’t.

    I can see the cons if you’re in the real world, meet a girl, and want to bring her back to your place for a first date (kinda serial killerish), but I don’t really think this applies since its a tiny campus, most people on campus know me and I have a flawless reputation. And besides, we had a semesters worth of class together, and are at least on a first name, smile and say hi basis for the last few weeks. I don’t know, considering the circumstances, I don’t think it’s weird. Thoughts?

    Personally, I think it’s a little too much, too soon. Maybe you should try striking up a conversation with her – something more than just “hi”. I can’t imagine someone I see on the elevator every day asking if I want to come over to his place for dinner. To me, it would seem a little creepy.

    Sounds like Hannibal 😉
    Better take her out to a restaurant to start with, or get to know her better.
    Then invite her for dinner.

    take her for coffee or even a beer, rather than full on fancy dinner out somewhere. I’ve never had good dates come out of situatuations where the guy wants me to come over too soon, its too much pressure.
