Q- According to an online dating advice article, the number one food guys should NEVER order on a first date is ___________ ??
A - Soup.
The list can be found here on the askmen.com website. The top 10 goes like this:
1- soup (messy & no one looks good eating it)
2- salad (she will think you are cheap and finicky)
3- buffalo wings (messy and it's "party food", unsophisticated)
4 - corn on the cob
5 - tacos
6 - lobster
7 - fish sticks (she will think you don't try new foods)
8 - vanilla ice cream (she will think you are boring)
9 - milk
10- Big Mac
Here's why Askmen.com says soup is worse than tacos, buffalo wings, or corn on the cob for first date fare:
First rule of thumb: You never want to eat more or less courses than your date. For example, if she gets an appetizer, then you should also get an appetizer (sharing is also acceptable). Same goes for soup or salad. There is nothing more uncomfortable than watching someone eat while trying to have a conversation. If you are ordering a first course, avoid every type of soup. Soup is never a good idea on a first date. It’s messy, it’s hot and it’s incredibly hard to eat while maintaining any semblance of coolness. Ever tried to look smooth while shoving ice cubes in your mouth because the top of your mouth is singed? The combo of slumping over and slurping is not a good look. Don’t you dare pick up and sip from that bowl.
What she will think of you: She will think you don’t care about how you look in front of others. If you are willing to sip, slurp, singe, and spill on a first date, imagine how you’ll act the first time you meet her friends or parents.
