No, I’m not talking about making a toast before wine, because that is NEVER a question for me… of course we’re toasting. I’m talking about toasting his sandwich.
It’s one thing to make a man a sandwich (we can do that in our sleep), it’s another thing to take the time to toast it. Now listen, this is pretty simple… If you’re crazy about a guy, you’ll toast his sandwich! If you don’t, you’re hinting that maybe you don’t care, and he’s probably short term… just like the short amount of time it took you to make the sandwich.
You don’t think that he’ll notice the simple gesture of toasting? Oh, he’ll notice. Men only eat toasted sandwiches when they order them for themselves at Subway, Panera, etc. They consider this to be a luxury in the sandwich world. Even as little boys their mothers didn’t have time in the morning to toast their turkey & cheese sandwich for lunch… she whipped it together, cut it down the middle and sent them off to school. It wasn’t until around puberty, I’d say, that men discovered their love for toasted sandwiches. Whether they want to admit or not, men get super stoked when the worker at Subway asks him if he wants his sub toasted. He can’t resist, 9 out of 10 times he will say yes. He doesn’t care that he’ll be standing there for an extra 5 minutes, holding up the line, waiting for his precious sandwich to be toasted.
Now back to toasting a man’s sandwich. The fact that you’re actually making this guy a sandwich proves that he at least means something to you… and at this point he is worshipping the ground you walk on, because, well, a lady just made him a sandwich. Guys dream about this stuff.
Preparation time in making a sandwich can speak a lot about your relationship.
1. If you quickly whip something together, without asking for his preference on the amount of condiments… chances are you’re not committed to this guy and you could care less about what he thinks about your sandwich. There is a big difference between light and heavy mayo. By not asking him how he’d like his sandwich, you’re already subconsciously telling yourself that you’re not interested in getting to know this guy on a deeper level.
2. Now let’s say there is this guy you’ve been seeing that’s hard to read. You like him a lot and you want to impress him. While preparing his sandwich you’ll be a perfectionist. You’ll make sure you put the condiments on first (evenly spread), then you’ll line the meat and cheese just right, so that nothing is hanging off the edge, and if you realllllly like the guy, you’ll ask him if he wants it cut down the middle or diagonally. This sandwich will look like a piece of artwork.
3. When you’ve been dating a guy for a while, who you’re pretty serious about, you’ll be preparing sandwiches between #1 and #2. This sandwich won’t look like the Picasso mentioned in #2, but he’ll still love it all the same. You’ll be able to whip it together quickly because you know him so well and won’t have to ask how he wants it. It’s a perfectly decent sandwich.
4.Toasting. Toasting is a huge leap in a relationship. Toasting a man’s sandwich means you want to impress him and show him how much you care. This sandwich will be the greatest sandwich you’ve ever made. The simple gesture of toasting a sandwich changes everything and not just the taste, texture and temp of the sandwich. It means you don’t mind taking extra time out of your day to do something that makes him really happy. This is the point in the relationship when you realize you love him.
Initially he is going to rave about your sandwich from the second he takes his first bite. Now the funny thing is…by him being a guy, he won’t notice much he loves your toasted sandwiches until it’s time for him to make a sandwich for himself… maybe a week, or a month or two down the road… His sandwich won’t be the same; he’ll be eating his boring sandwich wishing he was eating your toasted one. Then he’ll start to realize how much he actually needs you in other aspects of his life, and how you just make everything better. Toasting sandwiches is serious business and should be saved for the right guy!
… Now if you toast his sandwich & bring him a beer… expect a proposal soon.
