Do Tell: How Do You Feel About Sharing Food?

I think how you order on a date says a lot about your personality, but I think it's fun to share food too! Even if you're not sitting side by side, leaning in close to eat off the same plate can bring a different kind of intimacy to the evening. Since I'm not a germaphobe, I'm all for this kind of dining, but I know people who wouldn't even fathom the thought of sharing food or utensils, especially with a semi-stranger. So how do you feel about informal eating like that? Do tell ladies, how do you feel about sharing dishes while on a date?

Almost always share food! More things to sample and more intimate. But it should be agreed upon by all parties before the order's made.

Only with people I know well :-) Doesn't bother me that much...I come from a big family.

On our first date my husband kept staring at my ravioli constantly asking, "Are you going to finish that?". I finally just gave him my lunch plate. He was very happy. I didn't go out with him again for months!

I'll share with friends. Would with a boyfriend too if I had one :-P

We taste each other's meals, but when I order something at a restaurant, it's because it's a dish I want it, not because it's a dish I want half of. So unless we decide to order a few things to share, I'm not too keen on watching the food disappear off my plate. :D

I share food with everyone! Semi-strangers maybe not, but friends and family and boyfriends, always. My boyfriend and I almost always order one entree and one salad/side when we go out and share it all, it's better that way cause there's less waste!

Generally, I don't like to share food with anyone, except children. I can't deny children. :)

I'll share food with my husband, of course. Or a close friend or family member, but NOT someone that I don't know very well.

I missed sharing when they taught it in kindergarten apparently. Don't touch my food! I almost freaked when I went out to eat with some work associates a couple weeks ago and I found out what Tapas meant once we were ordering! That was ubers rough!

No double dipping. I make it known before the order is even in. Other than that I don't mind sharing.

My boyfriend and I share, mostly cause we're both light eaters.

I have no problem sharing food or utensils with my boyfriend, family and close friends. But if I was on a date I don't think I'd share the utensils. Depends on how well I knew the guy. And Syako, first thing I though too! :) Love Joey...

I like to take my fiance's food, but it tends not to work out the other way, because he's generally grossed out by my penchant for extremely rare steaks. :D

Yes, we share. He always offers me a few bites of his food. Then when I'm full (I can never eat a whole portion) he finishes off the rest of mine. As for eating off a date's fork... well, if you are going to kiss him you're going to swap saliva anyway! Besides, saliva does a pretty good job killing all kinds of germs.

My boyfriend always wants what I have even if what he got was something he really likes. I guess it's just wanting what you don't have, but we always share. I like him to try my stuff because then I get to try his.

Nope. I am, without a doubt, the most selfish and particular person in the world about my food. No sharing.
