The first night I went out with my boyfriend we met for "a" drink at a bar. Needless to say, it turned into several drinks, after which i INSISTED upon being taken to mcdonald's for a tipsy snack. he says now that that's how he knew i was the girl for him...not afraid of a little fast food! juliemyjewel 8 years haha! Good one Pop! I was seriously shocked by your post! I think that guys generally like it when their dates eat. Not that everything a woman does has to be for her man, but no one wants to date a woman with food issues... i-am-elle 8 years Mmm I pig out.. especially if I'm out with the boyfriend and he's paying!! Come on ladies who don't eat on dates, put some meat on your bones! =P Guys think its sexier anyways. lanuchan 8 years i love to eat -- otherwise why would i go out? and my bf knows it, and doesn't mind one bit. reeveske 8 years omg i hate when girls dont do this! we all eat, so who cares? millarci 8 years oh heck no! I order when I go out I always get what I want. If I order a salad, it's because I want it. If they can't deal with it, oh well! hahahaha! :) demeter 8 years I didn't know people thought they needed permission in the first place! popgoestheworld 8 years lol julie, I was joking. I couldn't resist. The very idea that I would need permission to stuff my face is entirely alarming to me :) Actually I went on a date w/ my boyfriend the other night and he ordered a veggie omelette and I ordered a bbq bacon cheeseburger. When they brought the plates out the waiter just assumed that I had ordered the veggie omelette and when I corrected him he actually gave me props for my order. Was pretty funny. Anyway, I'm glad you found it alarming - I most certainly would too :-D ash_marisa 8 years i hope you are joking misslarue 8 years when i first started dating my now husband, i was always too nervous to eat. Not anymore! calibabi 8 years funny story...i got an email from an ex-boyfriend who i am still friendly with. he said "i remember one time we went on a date, and you ordered chicken wings and i thought you were the coolest chick ever! we didn't even know each other very well but you weren't afraid to eat messy food." i honestly don't even remember this, but i believe it! i'm not one to skimp on my food...and obviously some boys appreciate that fact. :) made me smile anyways... juliemyjewel 8 years OMG that is so not right Pop! That sounds pretty controlling. You seem so self aware in all your posts that this kinda shocks me! Order your own plate girl! popgoestheworld 8 years Sadly, this isn't true for me. Whenever we go out to eat, my boyfriend is the only one who gets to order food. Then I have to ask him for bites, and he'll only give me as many as he thinks I "need" in order to stay skinny. I know that sounds a little weird but it's good 'cause it keeps me slender! juliemyjewel 8 years Actually eat? Do chicks still not eat on dates? Lame!
