okay so I know older guys eat the same as younger guys but I'm cooking dinner for a guy I'm interested in and he's 49. All my young boyfriends just wanted to go out and get fast food. Well I really want to impress this guy, so what should cook? Like tell me meat and sides and everything. What would you want a woman to cook for you?

For sure love it when my girlfriend cooks, it gives me a break bc I do most of the cooking.
Just a suggestion... kind of a comfort food... do a pork loin in a sweet and sour sauce in the crock pot or oven. You can toothpick pineapple rings on the pork-loin. You can stuff it with bread, and some pineapple tidbits, and cranberries if you like or just keep it plain.
Make sure you baste it occasionally.
There are lots of good recipes to make the sauce from scratch.
For the side just steam some plain Basmati rice to go with and serve! You can place the sliced pork loin on the bed of rice and cover in some of the sweet and sour sauce so that the sauce gets into the rice also.
For dessert I would get some banana's and Cointreau. You put the banana in a frying pan, cover it with Cointreau liquor and light it up to flambe the banana (the Countreau caramelizes onto the banana). Remove the banana and put it in a bowl add some soft serve ice cream on either side and voila! Banana's flambe. It tastes like a warm banana split with sweet orange syrup that is cool and creamy from the soft serve Very Simple yet very tasty! You can add a little handful of raspberries to each for some color and extra flavor if you like.0

I can tell you straight away what my other half would want.
Steak. Chips. Veg/salad. Garlic bread.
But to be honest, you would be best cooking something you are comfortable making. Don't do something you've never done before and don't have confidence in. Stick with what you know/what you like.2
