LA Matchmakers Reveal 3 Foods to Never Eat on a First Date

los angeles matchmaking

You spent a lot of time deciding what to wear, tried on many outfits, styled your hair and you went and got it professionally done when you just couldn’t get it to look right.  Now you’re getting ready to meet him and are watching the clock tick—tick, tick, tick.  Sound familiar?  Yes, that’s because that’s what every woman goes through preparing for first dates.

Now comes the fun part.  You’re sitting at the restaurant talking and getting to know each other when the menu comes around—it’s time to order.

Now, let’s make something clear here, you can order whatever you want; however, if you spent hours getting dolled up and are looking to make the best first impression, you don’t want to order something that is going to give you a jack-o-lantern smile or turn your cute outfit into a mess.

Once you land a boyfriend, you can definitely eat all the wings you want; in fact, that’s what’s going to help you bond as a couple.  But on a first date, you might want to skip the wings—and a few other things.  Are you ready to find out what they are so you can land a second date with this awesome guy?  Obviously!  So get ready as Los Angeles’ best dating service reveals the worst foods to order on a first date.

  1. BBQ Ribs

When something comes served with a bib or moist towelettes, then you know it’s going to be a disaster.  There is no way in the world you can eat ribs without looking like a caveman.  Sure, ordering a big slab of ribs might impress him, but picture this… halfway through the ribs, you’ve used all the napkins on your table and the next, and now your white dress is covered in barbeque sauce.  Ribs are delicious, sure, but they’re not easy to eat.  Either you dig in and enjoy them or you’re the person who eats them with a fork and knife, and who does that?  Our LA matchmakers want you to skip the ribs on your upcoming first date.

  1. Garlic

Do we really have to explain this one?  Of course, garlic is delicious and goes with many different dishes; however, if you’re holding on with the tiniest sliver of hope to get a goodnight kiss, then you might want to stay away from this pungent little bulb.  You can chew as much gum as you want, but nothing can cover the odor of this pungent little powerhouse.  The odor can stay with you for up to 24 hours.  Trust us, he’ll notice it.

  1. Spicy Foods

There are some people who have no problems eating spicy foods; they are spice lovers and have no problem digesting them with ease.  Really, some can eat the spiciest things without even breaking a sweat; however, for most of us, spicy foods tend to crank up the heat.  If you’re like most women, you’ll probably go diving into a glass of water thanks to the intense burn.  Do you really want to sweat all your beautiful makeup off or desperately order a glass of milk because you can’t take the heat? This is the time to impress your date, not sweat profusely from the spicy foods you thought you could handle.  Now, that’s not hot! Take it easy and go with what you know.

For all you ladies with an upcoming first date, make sure you avoid these three food no-no’s.
