20 Foods Not to Order on a First Date

First dates are usually filled with excitement and the need to impress as well. After all, you want the other person to like what they see and perhaps snag a second date or a third one for that matter. Unfortunately, both men and women fail to think beyond what outfit they should wear hence some first dates turn to complete failure all because they didn’t consider what food to order when the time comes. So, in order to avoid making a complete fool out of yourself during your first date, here are 20 types of food that you shouldn’t be ordering.

  • Soup – Slurping or perhaps burning your tongue is not a good way to start a date. Avoid this at all costs.
  • Spaghetti – Unless you plan on working the moves like in Lady and the Tramp it’s best to leave this dish well enough alone. You might end up with sauce on your clothing or worse on your date.
  • Tacos – Seriously, how can you concentrate on what your date has to say when you’re preoccupied making tacos?
  • Hamburgers – Unless you are going on a date on a fast food joint this is another dish that spells disaster.
  • Spicy Meals – Breaking in a sweat in front of your date isn’t impressive. Worse you will probably be drowning in water or beer just to get rid of that spicy taste from your tongue.
  • Garlic – Stay away from dish with garlic in it as long as your date orders one too. You don’t want to smell bad now do you?
  • Spinach – As much as you would like to impress your vegetarian date how much you love salads, stay away from spinach since this leafy produce can get stuck in your teeth.
  • Ribs and Wings – These two spell messy and one that you don’t want to appear on your first date.
  • Corn – Incredibly annoying to eat since it gets stuck on all matter of crevices when eating wrong.
  • Lobster – If you want to impress your date with money don’t order lobster. Even when this dish shouts expensive you won’t be scoring any points when you break apart this meal using your bare hands.
  • Fish Sticks – Try ordering some real fish instead if you don’t want to embarrass yourself in front of your date.
  • Oysters – Same premise as that of lobsters. Besides, getting the meat from the shell can be tough if you are not familiar with it.
  • Alcohol – If you will be drinking on your date keep your alcohol intake to a minimum.
  • Beans – You might be fond of Sloppy Joes at home but try not to eat it while out on a date.
  • Sushi – Prepare for some really awkward moments while you eat your sushi. Not a good idea on a first date.
  • BBQ – This messy dish is a disaster waiting to happen.
  • Asparagus – Aside from making your pee smell, it can also leave a lingering smell on your body.
  • Pizza – This is another messy dish you might want to steer clear from unless both of you love it.
  • Red Wine – Although it’s good for your health it might stain your teeth or worse your clothes when you spill.
  • Poppy Seeds – Unless you want to check your teeth every now and then don’t order this.
