Q: If I invite a man over to my place and cook dinner for him, why does he automatically assume it means I want to sleep with him? After this happened several times, I stopped doing it. I really enjoy cooking and sharing food ideas, but for some reason men I date leap to the wrong conclusions. Any solutions?
Steve: You're not adding granulated Viagra to the food, are you? I don't think it's your kitchen that's leading him to your bedroom. At some point in a new relationship, every man assumes the woman wants to bed him, because who wouldn't? The best way to defang these dining Don Juans is to make it clear when you invite them that there will be no dessert.
