Dear Poll: Would You Date Someone With Different Eating Habits?

An article in today's New York Times was all about couples who don't necessary follow the same diet — one partner eats meat and the other doesn't, or one person eats heart healthy and the other doesn't, etc. While I would like to think what you eat doesn't make a difference in your relationships, this article has a point when saying:

Sharing meals has always been an important courtship ritual and a metaphor for love. But in an age when many people define themselves by what they will eat and what they won’t, dietary differences can put a strain on a romantic relationship.

Even though we all know that relationships take some compromise, this is a little more complicated than you preferring white wine and your boyfriend preferring red. So what do you think, would an obstacle like his eating habits be a deal breaker for you?
