From choosing the perfect clothes to finding the most romantic location, planning a first date can be a tiring job. The safest place you say would be a fancy restaurant then. After all there is good food, wine, and music. What could possibly go wrong in such a beautiful setting?
While the lovey-dovey picture may work for our canine friends, it’s hard to understand how spaghetti can be anything but messy and ugly on the first date. So instead of the movie scene, picture the tomato sauce from the spaghetti dish flying around everywhere and landing on your face, your expensive clothes and your date’s hair. If you take care to avoid this disaster you will anyway end up spending the entire meal twirling the spaghetti to focus on your date’s conversation anyway. Oh, did I mention that slurping is not at all romantic.
Note: This applies for salad greens, foods with lots of parsley, tender bits of meat and corn on cob as well.
Note: This applies to huge hamburgers as well. Apart from the fact that you are cheap enough to take your date out for a burger, it is advisable not to horrify her by trying to put foods that do not fit into your mouth. It simply does not paint a pretty picture.
