7 Dishes You Definitely Shouldn’t Eat on a First Date


It often happens that on the first date of two unfamiliar people, some absurdity occurs anyway. Nevertheless, there are incidents that you can avoid. They are related to the food you choose.


If you and your chosen one decide to dinner in a restaurant, it is crucial to know a few tips and peculiarities. Not all dishes that a restaurant serves are suitable for a first date. Remember which food you shouldn’t order at the first meeting when Ukrainian women dating so as not to drop a clanger.

  1. Tacos and Burritos

Mexican cuisine is distinguished by its zesty taste, which not everyone can master. In addition to the specific smell from the mouth, the portions are usually quite large. And, unavoidably, you will not be able to eat the whole dish, especially if you have never tried Mexican dishes before. Opt for a roll with vegetables and salmon or chicken. It is a more neutral and convenient option. You will be able to flaunt exotic food preferences the next time you meet.

  1. Lobster

It is better to postpone this dish, and not only until the next date but also some distant one. Lobster is a very whimsical dish, which is not so easy to carve. If, on the first meeting, you want to learn more about the person in front of you and not work hard with crayfish cutlery — abandon thoughts of this delicacy and take a seafood salad instead.


  1. Corn

We are talking, of course, about boiled corn on the cob. This food is impossible to eat without a dozen napkins nearby. Besides, corn kernels tend to get stuck in the teeth. The picture is clearly not for the first date. Nonetheless, if you do not plan to continue communication, and you really want corn, then you can try.

  1. Soups

It is hard to eat soups without making specific sounds. It is quite natural, but hardly suitable for a first meeting. Of course, if you eat the first dish from the cradle every day and do it perfectly, then order it. However, you run the risk of putting your chosen one in an uncomfortable situation, which will cause unnecessary tension and embarrassment and will necessarily spoil the general atmosphere of the evening. 

  1. Spaghetti

Let’s not argue — this is a delicious dish, especially when there are so many Italian restaurants around where you just want to taste it. However, there is nothing sexy about eating spaghetti. If you want something Italian, it is better to opt for fettuccine, ravioli, or agnolini. It is no less tasty, but it is much more convenient to eat.


  1. Legumes

Even though they are indeed a rich source of vitamins, protein, and other nutrients, legumes not only improve the functioning of the digestive system but can also lead to meteorism, abdominal distention, or even stomach upset. Thus, it is better not to risk it.

  1. Carbonated Drinks

They cause flatulency, which, in turn, can lead to burping. Do you want to show only good manners at your first meeting? Then the answer is obvious: give up soda, especially sweet ones.
