Maybe it's just me, but I'm bothered (quite bothered) that my boyfriend doesn't share the same tastes in food as I do.
He's picky about everything. He hates milk, anything sour (which I love), poached eggs, Asian cuisine... the list goes on. Let it be known that most things he hates I love.
I know it seems like a petty question but is this any indicator of incompatibility? I know this shouldn't bother me but something is bugging me about this.
Did you have this feeling before and was it a deal breaker or did it cause issues in the relationship?
Or are my worries rooted in some bigger issue? Any help would be appreciated.
Is this a more valid reason why I'm bothered?

i agree with you~ the man i love is a terribly picky eater and refuses to try anything new.
we've been together for over a year now, and it hasn't caused any issues, but it's been decided that he does the cooking. my parents tell me that i should "be a good wife and cook for your man", but i know that he won't eat 95% of what i make.
at restaurants, we order separately~ that way, i can eat all the vindaloo/hellfire hot wings/general tao chicken i want and he doesn't have to.
he has broadened his horizons a little, tiny bit since we met. while visiting my parents, they took us to an Asian buffet (that i love and have been to thousands of times, and also has some standard fare that he'd eat), and my other half suprised me by asking to try a bite of my spicy chicken... and he liked it!
(i'm working on getting him to a point that he'll eat sriracha mayo with me... as of now, he still refuses to eat it, but great things come to those who wait! lol)1
