woodfordr saidI've gone out on dates with several guys who've borderline bragged that they are picky.
I prefer the term "selective". LOL!
The word "picky" brings back flashbacks of my parents in my childhood. Who always criticized me for being a "picky eater". I think because I trimmed the fat off my meat on the plate.
Truth is, I'll eat almost anything, subject to how it's prepared. There's hardly a vegetable, meat or seafood common in the US that I won't eat. My food range exceeds that of my husband, or of anyone I know. I eat stuff that turns his stomach, while I'll also eat everything that he does. But that "picky eater" criticism from my late parents still haunts me.
I've never had a date use the term picky for himself, but a few sure were fussy about their habits. That I found rather fem behavior that turned me off. Yah know, I wanna date a man, not a quivering tower of jello. (Who knows the movie that line is from?)
I spent 25 years in the Army. You accepted whatever was thrown at you. Picky was not authorized. And frankly, I find picky a bit unmanly and unattractive. Start pulling that shit in front of me and I'm outta there.
