Aaahh … The throes of a new romance … It’s exciting, it’s nerve-racking, it’s exhilarating and it’s wonderful – especially if you’re on your first date. There’s nothing more exciting than figuring out who likes who in the initial encounter! Unfortunately, the first date is usually quite shallow so you might easily turn your date off with the slightest mistake – suddenly you’re left wondering why he/she didn’t return your phone calls anymore. So to take some worries from your head for your first date, here’s a list of food you should avoid eating:
1. Anything with Chilly
We all know the obvious effects of chilly right? Does the word Dragon’s arse mean anything to you?? A hot chilly fart can shake the foundations of your car, wilt the roses you just gave her and give you some serious skid marks in your undies! Mild chilly is fine, just don’t go for the hard stuff. Seeing you sweating and your nose running as you gobble up your extremely chilly food is not something that can give you a gold star either!
2. Anything with Raw Onion or Garlic
Anyone who loves an onion or a garlic breath raise your hands up, please! Do you see anyone raising their hands up? Of course not! Most of the time, some meals have onions on them chopped up so tiny that you can’t even tell that they exist in the meal. Usual suspects would include a salad or kebab so you have to be careful with them. If you’re on a date just make sure that you find out if there’s any onions or garlic on your meal, otherwise you’ll be going home de – wait for it… NIED! DENIED again!
3. Anything with smelly cheese
Well, this is pretty straightforward, smelly cheese = smelly breath = I have to wake up early for work tomorrow. Smelly cheese such as Feta is something that you don’t want in your breath because the moment you open your mouth it’s going to smell as if someone farted something nasty!
4. Steak Tartare
I don’t know about you, but watching someone eat raw meat is something that I could never find sexy in a million years. Now unless your date is related to Hannibal Lecter, then I suggest you leave the Steak Tartare alone and go for something that’s well done because, to be honest, it’s quite disgusting to look at.
Let’s get real here when was the last time you were able to eat a taco and it didn’t fell apart? Can you honestly remember a time where you ate a taco and there was no sauce dripping out of your mouth or no contents of the taco spilling all over your plate? When you’re on a date you want to make a good impression so eat something that doesn’t fall apart so easily.
6. Anything with Spinach
The worst thing that can happen when you’re eating a salad is if you smile and a raw spinach leaf is suddenly saying hello to your date! Spinach leaf is like a magnet to your teeth so make sure that you don’t eat any meals with spinach on it. This is especially awkward if you’re laughing at a joke your date made pretending to look cool and a big chunk of spinach is stuck in your teeth – not cool dude.
Dating is such a fickle affair. Early on, the most inconspicuous details can turn someone off just like that. If you find yourself wondering why you never heard back, one funny yet possible thought is — maybe it was something you ate. So, don’t make your next date a dine-n-dash by eating one of these…
