Messy Eating: 5 Types Of Food To Avoid On Your First Date
By Michael Griswold From YourTango
For many guys, the ability to get a girlfriend involves two steps — meeting a woman and reeling her in. The meeting part can happen anywhere: school, a bar, a friend’s wedding, while you’re looking for condoms at the local supermarket (well, as long as she doesn’t see you perusing the extra small selection).
In this regards, the first step to get a girlfriend is often random: you can’t always plan for it and instead, must be open to the possibility of meeting the love of your life somewhere you’d never think possible.
The second part of the get a girlfriend game — the part where she’s taken your bait and you’re bringing her to shore — is a part you can plan for. And it all begins with the very first date.
There are many obvious things you shouldn’t do on a first date: you shouldn’t talk about the love you possess for all three of your ex-wives, you shouldn’t ask her whether or not she has accepted Jesus into her life, and you shouldn’t tell her that you’ll pay for dinner as long as she pays you back in other ways. But there are also subtle things you shouldn’t do, including ordering certain types of food.
There are a handful of dishes worth avoiding the first time you’re on a date with a girl you are wooing. If you don’t avoid them, you might just end up with more on your plate than you ever bargained for.
1. Oysters: Some people say that oysters are an aphrodisiac, others think that story’s fishy — oyster’s ability to make one horny, they argue, is more of an urban legend than anything. Regardless of how you feel, oysters aren’t something you should initially order when you’re trying to get a girlfriend: Nemo does not make a good wingman. The reason is simple — pretty much every girl in the world knows the reputation of this shellfish; if you order them, you’ll merely come across as presumptuous or maybe even a little bit sleazy.
