What Cooking Together Can Reveal About Your Crush Looking for a way to get to know your crush a little better? It's simple -- just cook with them!

Having a night in can be much more romantic than dining out, plus you can benefit from figuring out his little quirks along the way.

Grocery shopping is a fun way to see what you both enjoy to eat and you can see how creative the other person is. Do they stick to the recipe, or decide to buy something extra to spice it up?

Once you start cooking it's good to see kindness, respectfulness, and a sense of humor. And, yes, you can see this just by how they cook! For example, if something goes wrong in the kitchen, do they freak out or make a joke about it? A reaction like, "You used jalapeno peppers instead of green peppers? Good thing I like it hot!" will give you an idea of their temperament. 

Another way to make cooking fun would be to cook up some aphrodisiac foods to set the mood.

If you and your partner enjoy seafood, try having oysters as an appetizer. For the main course, serve asparagus as a side and enjoy a glass of champagne or wine while eating.

For a delicious and aphrodisiac dessert, nothing says romance like chocolate! Chocolate ice cream or chocolate-covered strawberries should do the trick. 

And finally after eating that delicious but overly-hot meal, there is a pile of dishes. Does your co-chef help with the clean-up or go watch TV?

It's the little things that you notice while cooking together that gives you insight into your crush's personality!
