Dear Poll: What Meal Is the Most Romantic?

When you go on a date that involves food, dinner is usually what first comes to mind, but breakfast and lunch dates can be just as fun and romantic. While they all have their ups and downs, I'd choose a dinner date any day of the week — there's just something sexy about sharing a dessert across the table and going out when the lights are dim. That's just my opinion, though, so tell me, which meal do you find the most romantic?

Dinner is more romantic ... which is why I opt for lunch or coffee on initial dates.

Where is the option for ALL of them? We went out for a lovely candlelit meal the other night, very posh, and that was very romantic. It's pretty romantic when he sneaks out of bed and brings me scrambled egg on toast at the weekend though. ;)

Either breakfast or dinner. Lunch is a great meal but it's just not as romantic as the other two, unless it's a long, lazy picnic lunch, or a nice garden restaurant or something like that... I guess it really depends on where and when - usually lunch during the week is rushed and not romantic at all!

I have not been in a date with a guy that I actually have great chemistry with and click with since I went out with my ex. I have gone out with one guy friend in the past 3 weeks out to eat but I would not consider that a date more like a disturbance.

The most romantic meal I have ever had was the morning after I made love for the first time. While I was taking a bubble bath my guy was cooking me chocolate chip pancakes! It was just one of those amazingly sweet moments that is a once in a life time thing. Plus I love breakfast food! And I hate eating an awesome meal late night and then getting physical with a guy b/c Im so luggish and full and probably have gas! haha Godforbidd that gas ever came out! Luckily that hasn't happened, but morning is just a better time for us all. Star your day off right!

Ooh, and sitting on our deck on a warm summer night, with a few cocktails, some nice seafood, and a couple of candles is probably my most favorite romantic mealtime with my husband.

I think it doesn't matter whatever you make the best of.

A dinner date is by FAR the most romantic! I love going to breakfast with my husband, but I wouldn't call it "romantic".

Dinner, most definitely. There's something really nice about cuddling together on the couch with some Chinese food or making a really nice steak to enjoy by candlelight.

Dinner. I don't like typical breakfast foods and I can never eat a big breakfast as it is! Lunch isn't romantic at all, in my opinion. But a candlelit dinner is always nice, and then you can spend the evening/night together. :)

NJ is definitely a love or hate state! I'm lucky though, I live in a gorgeous beach town, not exactly a "just off the turnpike" place! :)

Luna, I am a born and raised Jersey girl and NOTHING beats the diner at 2 in the morning for me. I love lunches, personally...because I feel like I get to do something exciting. I love spending time in the middle of the day with my boyfriend. I also love immensely going out to diners late at night or early in the morning. It's so relaxing, and so much fun. Unfortunately, we moved down South, and apparently they don't have 24/7 diners? Lame. So, that's lunch it is.

Dinner is more romantic, but I love breakfast dates for some reason! Maybe it's the Jersey girl in me, but meeting someone at a diner on a Saturday morning is just so relaxed and fun.
