I hear this so often but it just seems dumb. Guys are always getting mad if a girl doesn't eat a lot on a date and they'll always say something about it. But who cares what she eats or how much she eats?
Why do guys care so much about how much a girl eats on a date?

We all love to eat, who doesn't? Eating is something we do when we feel safe, we are programmed this way (that's why they say to chew gum when you're gonna go through a nervous situation since it makes the brain believe you're eating). So we feel like she's not too comfortable around us, and that's why she just tries to eat as little as possible.0

It's not that. We don't like it when a girl holds back on eating for whatever the hell reason they do. You want the tiny salad? Go ahead. The noodles served in a big ass wok? Sure. But don't say, i'm not that hungry when you've agreed to go out for dinner and picked the restaurant yourself.2
One perceived value. Often a good meal costs as much as his weekly food budget, and if she doesn't eat it...
Two guys buy things to have people enjoy them, if she just picks it looks like she didn't enjoy it
Three The guy is hungry and assumes she is as well. Why won't she eat, and if she's not hungry why did she eat before we went ou?0
If she eats a lot, that's a sign she will be fat when her metabolism slows down.0
I don't care at all. How much she eats is entirely up to her1
I remember a video that was by some girl, and went basically like, she choose to order a salad only to try to impress her date and not because that's what she ACTUALLY wants. And most likely he is paying for it so, she is eating shitty food she doesn't even truly want, wasting his money, to try to impress him. Sorry it's not impressive that you waste my money. And that's why it's pretty irritating when a girl doesn't eat a cheeseburger and orders a salad she doesn't even want.0

who cares if she wants a salad then that's what she wants the only thing that would bother me if we went out to dinner and she orders nothing0
I don't... unless she eats nothing... or starts eating like a bear.0

Guys don't want their money wasted on bullshit impressions. If you order a salad just because you don't want to come off as a fatty to the guy, you need to take a step back and remember why you're dating in the first place.
If you can't be yourself around this guy, what's the point of pursuing a relationship with him? Are you just gonna carry on eating shit you don't like? How long can you keep up the ruse?
If he sees you eating salads all the time, he'll assume you actually like them and will take initiative to surprise you with food you made him believe you like, such as making the same salads at home or pre-ordering before you arrive.
And as a side note: restaurant salads are SHIT. This is coming from someone, who eats veg on a daily basis. Seriously, the so called salads restaurants try to pass off as are nothing but a bowl of leaves with 2 cherry tomatoes and maybe an olive added just to boost the price to insane proportions.
I will NEVER eat a restaurant salad for as long as I live. The western world has no clue that there's more than one variation to a salad. Salads can't be absolutely fucking mouthwatering, if you actually put INGREDIENTS in it instead of a grass and some vinegar - BLEH!0
they think if she doesn't eat a lot she's scared of eating in front of him or something I don't know but it's something that some girls do because they feel uncomfortable eating in front of a guy, even though it's completely natural lol I've always ended up eating more most times i've gone out with a guy and they don't care0
Everything on the menu thanks ☺️
I would assume seeing a girl with a big appetite would be nice. Why? A guy likes to see a girl who isn't afraid of eating big proportions? I would assume anyways.0
It's not about how much she physically consumes, it's about them wanting her to be comfortable with them. If you like pounding back a burger, do it, if you like salads eat a salad - its the misconception girls feel the need to "eat less" or "light" on a date to keep that "feminine" appearance. Just be comfortable in the situation and don't hold back is what they're wanting.1
None of the guys I've dated gave a hoot about what I ate.0
