When you meet that special someone, it can feel like you’ve found your partner in crime. He makes you feel adventurous. He makes you feel capable of everything. He makes you feel like a kid again. He makes you want to try new things! But all of that can affect your eating habits, too. When you feel adventurous in your culinary experiences, capable of eating everything, childlike in your nutritional choices and curious about your snacks, you can wind up eating a lot more than you normally would. It’s no wonder many couples gain weight when they make the transition from single to content and in love. But neither of you will feel very content if you can no longer fit into your pants in a couple of months. You have the power to influence each other—for better or for worse—so try for better, and be aware if it’s for the worse. Do you and your partner indulge each other’s bad eating habits?
You want to try all the restaurants
You’re restaurant buddies. You’ve wanted to try so many restaurants in the city, and you finally have someone to try them with you. But you don’t go out to eat salad and fish filets—you go out for pasta, steak, and fried things.
