OMG! YES! lol...I mean, I usually don't even think about this or worry until the food arrives. I look at it and I'm like, "...what was I thinking?" Don't worry about ordering something "safe" though, just get what you want and concern yourself with being innovative about it when it gets there. Your utensils should make the rest a breeze...and napkins are a great way to hide your mouth while you quickly do a food in teeth scan with your tongue lol. The worst part for me is how I always manage to be the last one eating; probably because I talk too much in between bites. So, try to pace yourself; otherwise you'll be like me, sitting there chewing while he has absolutely nothing to do but watch you. Lol, I know I'm supposed to be making you feel less nervous and this may be having the opposite effect; but if you can laugh about this now and later, all the better. If he eats onions, you can eat onions...probably not my choice on a first date though. Also, you can always excuse yourself to go to the bathroom to check your teeth. It's a little excessive, but if you have anything dark or leafy: steak, spinach, salad...it might be wise. If you're not taking 4oz bites or chewing with your mouth open he probably isn't even going to notice any of this anyways. It's difficult to disregard somebody who has a mouth packed with food, chewing and talking and spitting little bits inadvertently into whatever it is you're eating on the other side of the table though. Avoid that, but rememeber that you're supposed to be having fun, even if that means embracing the messy awkwardness of any given situation!
