Top 6 things Not to Eat on a First Date !!

23 08 2012

First dates might be awkward, but even if sparks don’t fly and emotions don’t run high right away, you should take certain food precautions.

A first date can be a nightmare of anxiety. You want to make a good impression, so you worry over what to wear, or you rehearse intelligent things to say. So please don’t ruin it all by ordering some wrong food at dinner that is likely to make you a source of comedy or embarrassment for the rest of the night.

What are these danger foods? Here is a list of the 6 foods that you all must avoid when dining with a new companion.

1)       Spaghetti
No matter how delicious it looks and tastes, spaghetti is a definite romantic deal killer. There’s nothing romantic about watching you Hoover up wayward strands of pasta or listening to the constant squeal of your fork against spoon or plate. And by the end of the meal, that hot outfit you’re wearing is guaranteed to be splattered with flecks of tomato-basil sauce.

2)      Soup
No matter how delicious, it’s a dating disaster. Like spaghetti, it’s impossible to eat gracefully: the slurping, the backsplash. When your server asks, “Soup or salad?” the answer is Salad. Always !!

3)      Garlic/Raw onion/Fish
Here is a guaranteed way to guarantee your date ends in nothing more than a handshake: Order a dish with garlic. You will have a bad breath and might not get a second date.

4)       Ice cream cone
A refreshing little cone seem adorably romantic on a summer day, but it’s a disastrous idea for three reasons. First, your date will be judging you from the get-go (Does plain strawberry mean she’s too conservative? Does bubble gum prove he’s immature?). Second, the minute you step outside, your rapidly melting ice cream makes you look messy as you have to lick it. This brings us to reason three: On any first date, avoid foods you have to lick.

5)      Hamburger

On a first date, never order food you eat with your hands. Hamburgers are messy. After three bites your arms are covered in a revolting slime of mayo, grease, and special sauce, and your tomato is hanging precariously from the back of your bun.

6)      Spinach

What’s wrong with spinach? At first glance, nothing -– but when you get back home at the end of the night to see that gross piece of green stuck to your front tooth you’ll know exactly why she didn’t seem to have a very good time.
