What To Order (And Not Order) On a First Date

How well a date goes can depend on what you order off the menu.

5 things you should order on a first date

Dessert

No one likes to be the one who insists on dessert, so taking that task upon yourself is a noble act and a sweet gesture.

Food

Eating is sexy. Starving yourself is not. Don’t be that annoying person who says, “I had a really big lunch and I’m still stuffed.” No one believes you.

Fries

The saving grace for partners on a diet everywhere, ordering fries when your date gets the salad allows them to feel better about their choice and sneak a couple as well once the temptation proves too much.

Oysters

Raw oysters are rich in rare amino acids that result in an increase of sex hormones. Need we say more?

Sushi

Sushi is a great way to both impress with your culinary knowledge and show your playful side by chopstick-swiping their sashimi.

5 things not to order on a first date

Steak

Especially if you order it well-done. Twenty minutes is a long time to wait for food once the stranger opposite starts talking about their massive kewpie doll collection.

Soup

Soup, especially any kind of noodle soup, means slurping. Even if you sidestep this faux pas, you will eventually face that last bit of broth in the bowl, and that’s a no win situation in public.

Lobster

Not only is it a burden to dissect, watching a potential mate rip open something with a face can be a little disconcerting.

Spaghetti

You will end up getting sauce on you, your date, the table and probably the waiter. No one with fewer than four legs has ever pulled off that scene from Lady and the Tramp. Don’t try.

Burgers/Sandwiches

They will be larger than your mouth, and you will look like someone who can’t feed themselves properly. Your date wants to get to know you, not your uvula.
