What are some foods you should just never eat on a date?

I would like to compile a list of about 7-10 foods that you should just never eat while on a date. reasons for not eating the food can be because of how you look while eating them, they make you have gas or they make your breath smell bad, etc.

Spaghetti, anything that has seeds to large to swallow, Sloppy Joes aren't called sloppy for no reason, if you're at a finer restaurant & aren't skilled at the art of removing the meat from lobster or crab you may look like a 2 year old.

Some foods that you should never eat on a date are spaghetti, veal, barbecue, chicken wings or fried chicken. Burgers, extremely cheesy foods or leafy greens are also other examples of bad choices of food to order. See more tips at http://www.rd.com/slideshows/10-foods-not-to-order-on-a-date/.

You look down on Asian culture?

but on a date when some people might not know how to use chopsticks, they would have food falling down on them... looks very bad..

please do not try to interpret things that are said with such a manner... we are talking here about food for a date night!!!

Most Americans don't know how to eat properly with chopsticks.
I spent a few years in the Orient.
They have the tiny dishes that fit in ones hand for a reason. ;P
The bowl is brought right up to the mouth and soup is sipped from it or the ingredients are shoveled in with the chopsticks.
Americans are always trying to balance things from plate to mouth instead.
I am not saying the Orientals never eat from plate to mouth, but sloppy stuff is usually brought up to it in the dish.

Obviously, ALL the foods mentioned, but most people didn't tell you why..Spinach and most salad will get stuck in your teeth, there's no way to "look cute or graceful" eating chicken wings( and you usually eat A LOT to get full...looking a bit like a pig!)Saucy meals are a GUARANTEED to splatter all over, leaving you looking a saucy mess! Olives,onions,cheese,eggs,really dairy products, coffee and tea give you bad breath..PERIOD! If this a first date and you will be drinking alcohol, go for fruity drinks and wines.. skip the hard liquors,beer and shots. Sorbet instead of icecream, grilled chicken or steak..

You shouldn't care what you look like on a date. Your date should just like you for who you are, not by what you look like. Dates are all about getting to know your future partner and having fun. If you need to fart, don't be afraid to; everyone farts, but you must wait afterwards, however, when it comes to your breath smelling, no one wants to kiss someone that has bad breath, so I would suggest you to carry a pack of mints with you or mint flavored bubble gum.

Eat whatever you want. If you're going on a date with someone they probably like you enough. If you spill something on you, laugh! It's actually pretty funny! If your date tries to make you feel bad, then they're clearly not right for you. You should be able to be yourself with them!

What a great attitude you have! Wish more people thought the way you do, but look at how few people pointed out the obvious: It's a DATE! Not a job interview! So relax and enjoy yourself. Your most brilliant comment was, "You should be able to be yourself with them!" Refreshingly brilliant. Thank you so much.

Now, now. There shouldn't be anything you cannot eat on a date. You can eat what you want. It all depends what kind of date you're on, the budget of the date, your parter, etc. If your partner orders a burger, order one yourself if that's what you want. If your date thinks bad of you for having eaten something and getting a bit stuck in your teeth, that isn't a date worth keeping in my opinion.

You should avoid Indian curries, spicy foods and noodles with onion and garlic in general. However, it largely depends on what kind of date you are with.

I don't see why people say no spaghetti. If you have table ediquette you know to use both fork and spoon. Meaning: you take fork get about a bite size twirl it onto spoon. And eat. hence no sloppy mess. If your on a date it shouldn't matter, I've been married for 10 years and no there is no graceful way for anyone to eat ribs. ( ask my husband) drink what you want. I've been with people who just have water and milk.. Personally I agree to the limiting of alcohol.

I eat whatever I feel like eating. If I can't be myself on a date, I'm with the wrong guy. If he's critically judging me right from the start, he's not the type of man I'd want to have a relationship with. Why would ANYONE want to start a friendship with someone who puts forth a false image based on deception? I want my companion to simply relax and be themself when they are with me.

Try not to eat anything which take much time to digest. And try soft and light meal. Eat less only which can keep you active. Must have lemonade to quicken the digestive process. And must take a walk with your date it will also help you to digest quickly...So no farting :)
