When it comes to dating, food matters! That’s the word from Babe Scott, a dating expert who says there may be no better way of judging someone’s compatibility than through their eating style. So here are some common dining styles, and what they can tell you about your date’s personality, according to Scott’s book called Delicious Dating:
- Beware of the Transfat Date. Scott says Transfat Daters have the romantic habits of Homer Simpson. Their idea of romantic togetherness is a meal made of their four favorite food groups: fat, fried, frozen, or salty. They’ll likely take you to dinner somewhere with a TV – so they can talk to you with as little eye contact as possible. If you stick with this date, you can look forward to a future of fighting over the TV remote.
- Another dating personality type: The Food Sensualist. That’s someone who prefers connecting with you over homemade meals. Scott says there’s nothing fake about food sensualists. In fact, cooking with family recipes is a sign that family and heritage is important to them. Also, if they cook with fresh ingredients, that tells you they have your happiness and health in mind. Beware: Food Sensualists are generally considered “high maintenance,” because they’ll expect you to put as much time and effort into the relationship as they do.
- One more dating personality type: The Boa Constrictor. That’s the person who basically inhales their food the moment it’s set on the table. Scott says people who are in a hurry to eat will tend to rush through everything you do together. That’s why she believes your goal should be to dine with someone who takes their time, and savors every bite. After all, the average married couple has the potential to share more than 20,000 meals together! So, it’s a good sign if your date takes their time. That means they’re eager to spend more time with you.
