  • I would like Chinese food, Italian food and European food since much of it tastes good. Although I likes sushi, spicy chicken and many other food types too I wouldn't eat it on a first date because it's messy and I'm too clumsy with the chopsticks. It doesn't help being made in China if you're trained and raised in Norway. :P

    • I knows Italian food is European food since Italia is a European country. But I answered based on the poll.

Most Helpful Girl

  • I prefer to not eat on the first date. I prefer to be able to completely focus on my date and do something simple that isn't very time consuming. Like taking a walk in the park. Plus I don't like involving money so early on. I prefer to pay for my own things and wouldn't want to get into a mini-argument concerning who should/shouldn't pay and how much.
    And if the date, for some reason, was so awful that I had to run away, it would be much easier to do so if I'm not committed to the situation. Like if you're at a restaurant, it would feel beyond rude to leave before the main course has even reached your table. But if you're just taking a walk, you could read a fake text message/get a fake call and make up an excuse to leave.
    If I absolutely had to eat something on a date, I'd prefer to just go to a café and have a coffee and a cookie.

  • All you can eat tapa's are perfect in my opinion. Tiny plates with very varied food where you can comfortably be a while and get to know each other trough the dishes. No concern on prices and who orders what, just nice relaxed eating without being quickly full.

    • I know the almost perfect restaurant for it to. They got a bit of everything, sushi, meat dishes, vegitarian, fastfood. The only problem is the waitresses are clearly selected on sheer beauty so she might get the wrong impression of me picking that location if she assume i did it for the girls.

  • I vote H, If i am eating with my date, i am the one cooking and its usually Italian. Thats usually a third date, when i am going out on a first date though its not something i care about, I typically eat where ever the girl likes because when it comes to food if it doesn't try to kill me first i will eat anything.

  • Not in a position to ever date as a FT working single dad , but hypothetically... no food or anything fancy , a simple coffee type date that does not put pressure on either party , this allows BOTH parties to eject quickly... for one example , I would , if on a date with a phone zombie and / or a woman that proved to be obnoxious & rude , I would pay quickly & leave without a word , a meal does not allow this !! It works both ways , both parties evaluate the other.

  • BBQ ribs because I want you can't eat them without getting messy. I want someone who isn't going to put on pretenses. I want a real down to Earth woman.

  • I go with her in one of my fav restaurants... and I ask her what she like before we go out, one time I had a girl with an allergic reaction at seafood crusts like shrimps, luckily I asked before...

  • I don't think I've ever had dinner on a first date. I would usually go for something quick like coffee or gelato because if it's terrible, I don't want to have to stick around to eat my food before I can leave.

    I don't particularly care about making a mess on the first date. I have also been eating with chopsticks practically since I was born so that would be fine for me. I'm not overly fond of Thai food; I prefer Vietnamese.

  • Something simple but tasty and filling. I don't see the point in a fancy feast if we don't even know each other yet. I'd be happy with a sandwich or a burger, etc.

  • Probably Italian/pasta because I know there will be something on that menu I'll probably like and it won't be messy.
