EATING IN

IF IT’S LOVE
Cook most the meal yourself, but invite your partner to join you for the finishing touches, to give a sense of partnership.

Drizzle truffle oil over mashed potatoes, transforming this ordinary dish into a veritable bowl of luxuriousness.

Prepare appetizers before your guest arrives: finger food, nothing fancy. Keep the lighting low. The idea is that she may nibble, but YOU are the main course.

EATING OUT

IF IT’S LOVE
Choose a restaurant based on romantic potential: soft lighting, somewhat quiet ambiance, a menu rooted in the Romance Languages: French, Spanish, Italian.
IF IT’S LUST
Choose a restaurant where you can order over-rich foods&emdash;oysters, foie gras, chocolate mousse&emdash;that spoil quickly, implying that this is a one-time opportunity, and there’s no chance of a repeat performance.

WHEN THE BILL ARRIVES

Look at the bill. Then look at her. Say, "So. Are you coming over?"
