Meeting someone for sushi? Here’s what you can tell about your date based on his/her method of sharing food. From Eat More Better.
• DOESN’T SHARE FOOD AT ALL This person has been hurt before and now has a real fear of commitment, coupled with analretentive tendencies. Even after you break down their culinary barriers and get a little nibble, other issues will linger.
• CUTS OFF A BITE AND PLACES IT ON YOUR PLATE This person wants to share new experiences but also places a high priority on boundaries. This taste is a nice tease, but it may be a while before you’re swapping fork spit.
• HANDS YOU THEIR FORK WITH THE BITE STILL ON IT This person eschews pretense, knows what they like, and has the confidence to go for it. Savor that bite, and look forward to seconds.
• HANDS YOU THEIR ENTIRE PLATE AND LETS YOU TAKE WHAT YOU WANT Tough call. This person could be a supportive and unselfish partner who wants you to choose your own path, or a lazy one who’s unprepared for the hard work of a real relationship. Take an open-minded mouthful, but chew with caution.
• STICKS THEIR KNIFE AND FORK INTO YOUR PLATE AND TAKES A BITE WITHOUT ASKING This person is an asshole.
• FEEDS YOU THE BITE FROM THEIR FORK Ooh la la! Some may find this a little forward, but don’t assume that anyone who’s this into you has something wrong with them. Sink your teeth into this bad boy or girl.
Keep these guidelines in mind, and you’ll never waste a second date again!
