I have never been able to eat in front of people. I just feel like I look gross and weird when I eat. Any time I go out with friends or family I don't either and I've never been able to do it in front of boyfriends. Any time I eat it has to be in my room, car far away from people or in a place where I know no one will enter or see me. If someone catches me eating, I immediately stop. Would it bother you if your SO couldn't eat in front of you?
