Can anyone tell me any do's and don'ts. I'm not really familiar with the religion and I don't want to mess up by saying or doing something inappropriate.
I've already messed up once food wise since he told me he didn't eat pork, but didn't mention he only ate halal meat.
╭( ๐_๐)╮ Any help appreciated.

Sure, since you now know he only eats halal meat then stick with that if you're gonna be giving him a dish with meat in it. No alcohol and you already know no pork. If you can't find halal meat in your area you can always go to someplace that serves fish or make something with fish if you wanna make something for him. If he's cooking then the onus is on him to find something good that you can eat and he can eat so don't worry there. If getting something with gelatin in it either make sure it's halal or it's suitable for vegetarians.
Honestly though, the easiest thing to do is to talk to him and ask him. He won't feel upset or offended that you asked and would be happy to tell you what he does and does not eat. Same with other things, just talk to him cause after all we're all different. Talking is the best solution here.
If it was me though I would also add, no drugs or alcohol where I am cause I'll just leave the area if that's the case. But again talk to him cause everyone has their own thing and level of preference/comfort when it comes down to anything from food to environment to habits etc.2
