12 Foods Never to Eat on a Date ...

Deciding what foods never to order on a date can sometimes be tricky. You don't want to be obnoxious and order the most expensive item on the menu - that’s just tacky. You’re encouraged to stay away from things that will gross your man out and make him run for the door. So for the sake of sparing any awkward moments, here are twelve foods never to eat on a date.

1. Salad

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Salad is a food you should never eat on a date. Men like women with hearty appetites. Ordering salad sends the wrong message, and that message is: I'm a finicky eater who's always on a diet.

2. Spaghetti

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I love pasta. It's really, really amazing. But spaghetti is messy. You want to be a lady, not a tomato sauce slob. Skipping spaghetti means no red sauce on your pretty white blouse.

3. Anything with Extra Garlic

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Think of garlic like your worst enemy. It’s tasty, but it’s a no-no. Never, ever, ever order anything very garlicky on a date.

4. Barbecue

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Any entrée that needs a wet nap should always be avoided. No guy wants to look at a girl with sauce all over her face and fingers and rib meat in her teeth. You want to be sexy, not a hot mess.

5. Spinach

(Your reaction) Thank you!

When you flash your signature smile, you want your date to see your pearly whites, not a chunk of spinach.

6. Lobster

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Lobster is delish, I know. But, it can get very sloppy. Your date wants to kiss you at the end of the night. He doesn’t want you to be covered in butter and a bib.

7. Hamburgers

(Your reaction) Thank you!

A hamburger and an enormous bun can turn into a bit of an eating disaster. Save yourself the embarrassment and order something that’s easier to eat.

8. Soup

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Soup can be hard to eat politely. Slurping sounds aren’t a turn on.

9. Ice Cream Cone

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Ice cream cones are tasty, I know. But, on any date, avoid foods that need to be licked. For real, no man needs that kind of pressure and no woman wants that kind of attention.

10. Mozzarella Sticks

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Fried cheese is pretty amazing. It’s so good it’s almost a delicacy. But, it can get really, really messy the minute you eat it. A woman with a mouthful of cheese isn’t too appealing.

11. Pesto

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Anything with pesto will 99% get caught in your teeth. Could you imagine being out with someone who has food stuck in their teeth? I certainly cant!

12. Substitutions

(Your reaction) Thank you!

I’m a person who constantly makes changes to whatever I’m eating. I’m a particular eater, and I know it drives some people crazy. When you make tons of substitutions on a date, your man might think you’re high maintenance or a tad bit annoying. Order something simple, instead of having to make an item change.

This food list is to help you avoid a dating disaster. Yes, there are tons of delicious foods that you want to try, but save them for dinner with your girlfriends. Do you have any extra foods to add to the list?
