A romantic first date is your key to either make it or break it in a relationship. And as they say, first impression is the last impression. So basically you wouldn’t want to do anything that jeopardizes your first date with a person. Choose the right restaurant, the right ambience, the right music and of course, the right food. There are many food items which are a big no-no for a first date. Here’s a list of 10 foods not to order on a first date that is if you want it to go well:
The best advice for a first date is not to order anything which requires slurping. Spaghetti pastas are tricky to eat and one may end up making a fool of him if anything goes wrong trying to eat them.
Oysters are also a ‘not to order’ dish on a romantic first date. The reason behind this is that a plate of oyster comes with 6 of these little items which cannot even be cut into half and eaten. So basically this dish consists of only 6 bites which are gone almost as immediately as they come.
Corn on the cob
The kernels of corn mostly get stuck in between the teeth and make for an awkward dish to order on any date, and most definitely the first one. So avoid ordering this dish as well.
Any asparagus dish
Asparagus might make you want to pee a lot after the date and that can be slightly annoying. So unless you want to spend a lot of time in the bathroom afterwards, don’t order any dish containing asparagus.
Steamed lobster has a lot of juices which can just squirt almost everywhere. Infact the shell of the lobster is also hard to open and moreover this dish is quite expensive as well.
Avoid ordering fermented food items such as kimchi and fermented tofu on your very first date with a person as they can be quite smelly.
Donuts and zeppole
Both of these items contain powdered sugar which if gets blown on the face can make for a funny situation and hence must be avoided.
Ice cream as the dessert
Ordering ice cream as a dessert is pretty boring especially when you are trying to make a first impression.
Any food you can’t pronounce
If you don’t want to put yourself in an awkward situation, avoid ordering anything which you can’t pronounce.
Do not order spicy food on your first date as it will make you as well as your partner uncomfortable.
