Homecooked, or even better: grilled! I don't need a fancy or expensive meal to be happy, just something tasty.30
I like both. Each has its benefits. The date night at home can very easily and casually slide into naked.10
I like to cook so I like the date night at home.30

Depends on the occasion. I think both can potentially be lovely and romantic.20
That's a tough one... i'd like to say home cooked is best most of the time... but if its fine dining then a restaurant would probably be the better option and the food can taste exquisite. You could be daring with the menu and make it a whole new experience. Even till today I still reminisce over some of the fine dining experiences I have had... and I think in the end that's the impact you are looking for with a date to be honest. After the dining experience you can walk it off with a pleasant walk home and take it from there... I think overall that would round up to be a great date night experience.10
Home cooked. All the way. I can cook good! 😋
Restaurants usually tend to serve baby portions and charge at least double the worth of expended foods for the meals. Leaving the same restaurant makes me feel broke and leaves me still hungry. Street food would have been more efficient by at least double rate.
For home cooked meals the financial expenses of groceries are halved and the portions are really 2 giant plates. That's Plenty enough for getting from empty stomach to a full belly for 2. Although its time consuming but with a woman it will be fun.10
generally I'd prefer home since I like to cook and I'd be more comfortable im my own flat. But I wouldn't invite anyone I don't know well into my home. So that would be no option for the first few dates. Plus he might think he is getting more than just dinner if I invite him to my home.20
I am a strange person with some eating disorders, that I do not like most foods. I basically only eat pizza and Mac and cheese. Needless to say this complicates going out to dinner. Whether with friends or a date. So personally I would hate it if my date put in a lot of effort making dinner, only for me to not eat it. It is my own fault, I know, but I think if a person in the couple was to want to cook the other dinner, it needs to be an agreed upon meal10
If it’s a special occasion like an anniversary or a celebration of a big goal (graduation, pass the bar, raise) I would choose going out. I enjoy home cooked meals and the intimacy experienced there on a date but I also like the idea of building memories outside of the house. I imagine having a special place were we can come back years later and recreate memories. Always enjoyed the romance in coming back to the same place we had our 1st date for a 10 year anniversary and feeling nostalgic.10
1st i don't accept mu future girl to invite me for a restaurant, since she's going to become a housewife, she will learn that her man will invite to a restaurant and will pay for her food, which shows the girl that he cares about her a lot and he's able to provide for her.
I'd love thay she invites me to a homemade meal that she made by herself, after the meal, she will get the kisses 😊20
Home cooked meal because being in the kitchen with your boyfriend or girlfriend there’s this intimacy in the room and it’s just the two of you. That’s how I feel with my boyfriend in the kitchen. A little bit of music and a few glasses of wine.10
If I already know the person I would love a DIY dinner, cooking together always seemed like a lot of fun!20
Home cooked meal. More special since its hamdmade. Plus, great date activity. I find it super fun and relaxed10
If it´s a newer date, I´d prefer going to a restaurant. I wouldn´t be comfortable with them making too much of an effort cooking until I knew them well.21
Home cooked. Food allergies make it hard to go out.20
depends on if the guy is a good cook or not and the restaraunt he wants to take me to10
If its home cooked, you don't even need to bring her home afterward10
Home cooked candle lit dinner. With slow dancing. Maybe a heated spa if it's winter.10
I like both but I prefer at home I feel more comfortable.10
I was a cook for many years so I love to cook a special meal for my lady. I don't want to always cook in a relationship. If my date wanted to cook a meal instead of going out would be desirable10
I enjoy both when the mood strikes but I'm not a big restaurant guy in general.20
what ever you can aford but I think making a nice Neal at home for some 1 you care about shows more caring than going out10
Initially a nice meal out but cooking together can be kewl10

I like dining out better - because the food is more unique but I've had meals at my home that taste a lot better than restaurant food - examples include home made pasta - the only place with pasta better than the home made pasta I have is East Side Marios. I also believe the home made salads I eat taste better than the salads I have at restaurants but when I go to a restaurant - I'm not just paying for the food - I'm also paying to have people serve me and wait on me and take care of me and I'm paying for the variety - cause a restaurant might have a hundred food options while your home might only have about 20 - 30 food options.
That's why I don't like the concept of a restaurant, though. Because yes, they're supposed to be waiting on you and taking care of you, but most of the time they're nowhere to be found and they only show up when they're not needed. So you're paying extra for extra frustration.
@Jamie05rhs I guess for me - even if the service isn't perfect - if it isn't terrible - I still prefer it to not having restaurant service and eating at home.
