Eating while on a date

    Some of my friends were saying that they are really self conscious while on a first date and they go to dinner. They say that they don't wanna look like a slob while eating so they don't order much and barely touch what little they do order. What do you guys think? Are you ever concerned about "pigging out" too much while you're on a first date with someone?

    Ditto. No.

    Though I might avoid eating ribs or lobster on a date, as you just get messy.

    lol, no. Remembering those days, if my eating or appetite turned them off it was a sign of finicky that was a turn-off for me.

    I have been guilty of this on a few occasions.

    It's not because im concerned about looking like a pig by eating a lot, rather, if it's a first date, I'm a little nervous...so my apetite is kind of supressed.....also, i'm usually so busy talking and yakking away that I don't want to have long drawn-out silences while I stuff a burger down my throat...

    so yeah, it's not because imn thinking "omg, he'll think im such a pig if I eat too much" rather my nerves and conversation sometimes get in the way of a large meal like dinner

    It really depends on how familiar you are with the person. On a first date, I would probably stay away from buffalo wings and garlic bread. icon_lol.gif

    I am going to order everything I want. You don't want it, don't order but if someone gives me a hard time with what I should eat then it is a deal breaker.

    I would just avoid anything with curry or garlic, and not eat like a pig at the trough. Otherwise, I wouldn't care.

    Not pigging out on the first date would just be a lie because I love food. It's one of the things in life I love the most.

    Was it guys or girls who said this?

    No. I might not order something that I wouldn't look attractive eating, however. No ribs. No spaghetti. And no burritos or hamburgers (I drench them both in sauce and it gets messy).
    Also I would avoid food that will give bad breath or get stuck in my teeth.
