Ah, the excitement of a first date. Spending hours getting ready and planning everything like what to wear and what to say to make a good impression on your partner. 

However, the most important part of the date often goes without planning. What to Eat! Obviously, you don’t want the remainings of spinach or bolognese taking all your attention while you have to be concentrating on your date. 

Here are 10 foods that you should avoid on your first date if you want to avoid embarrassment. 

Spicy Foods

If you are a spicy food lover, hold your cravings because you wouldn’t want to look sweaty and with a runny nose. 

Spicy foods can divide your attention between your date and glasses of water and pile of tissues. 


If you’re looking for something fishy, that is without the metaphor, then go for anything except tuna. 

Tuna tend to leave lasting smell ruining your expensive cologne and your chance of a good night kiss. 


After all the hours of preparation, you just can’t let the long saucy spaghetti get into portraying a messy look for you.

Just imagine, your partner is talking all romantic and you are struggling to get those saucy noodles into your mouth. So, a big No.

Garlic Bread

Even though Garlic carries an amazing taste, is found to be lingering in nature. It leaves an uneasy smell in your mouth for hours. 

Garlic bread is considered number one kiss killer around the world. If you don’t mind carrying mouthwash around to not miss the special moments, it’s your call. 


Good for health, bad for first dates! You would not want to make your teeth green on the first date. 

It carries the dangers of ruining the special moments that could have gone smoothly if only the spinach was not kissing your teeth.


Salads are great for your health. Not so much for the first date as it may create an impression to your partner that you eat less. 

It may be a big a turnoff for your date if you do not enjoy your meal to the fullest. 


First date, off for sushi? Sounds great but trust us the idea is just a trap!

Once the sushi goes into your mouth, you start talking in a hard to understand language and your romance becomes a second priority. You wouldn’t want that. 


Beans are great a meal unless you can digest the burps along with it. Compared to other meals, beans tend to create the whoops moment a little more. 

So if you plan the date to be classy instead of gassy, avoid beans. From all the proteins the beans carry, you feel heavy and that is not what you want on your first date.


The barbeque sauce painted all over you and the struggle for tearing does not look sexy from anywhere. 

Ribs are okay for your later dates, but for your first one, you don’t want your partner to think he/she has chosen a date from the stone age.


The idea of seashore first date is great only if you avoid the sea item orderings. 

Or else the desperateness you put in to pull the creatures out of their shells can ruin the ambiance you’ve been trying to create so hard.

Same Order

‘I’ll have what she/he is having’, the statement has been out of style for a long time now. 

Well, this will show you aren’t capable of making decisions on your own which might be a turn-off. 

After all the not to orders, you might wonder what is left for order. Well, there is chicken, free from bloating that red meats offer and smell the fish items come with. 

Then you can go for a desert date. Grabbing a coffee for a date is turning too old fashion, show your uniqueness.

This was a little waking to our readers with the not to order food lists on their first date, for those wondering where they have been going wrong, hope this story could be of some help.
