List Rules Foods that are either smelly, messy to eat, or will make you look awkward and unattractive while you eat them. Save these for the second date!

Going on a first date is a tricky situation. After you've decided what to wear, what to say, and where to go, you have to figure out what to eat on a date. Now, if your perfect first date is a night at the ball game, maybe you're not going to be completely horrified if a foul ball knocks a mustard laden hot dog onto your white shirt, but there are other, more complicated date situations that require a little more thought when deciding what to eat on a date.

The best foods to eat on a date are simple food choices like chicken breast, sandwiches, salads, and other foods that aren't smelly (before, during, or after) or likely to get stuck in your teeth. Bad foods to order in a date include hot and spicy foods that might make you sweat or cause general discomfort, foods that make your breath smell (garlic, onions), messy food that could end up on your face and/or clothing, and anything that just makes you look even the least bit unappealing as you attempt to eat it (maybe you save the big food challenges for the 2nd date...). 

What foods should you avoid on a date? What are the worst foods to eat on a date? This list of bad foods for a date should give you an idea of food no-nos if you want a yes when asking for a second date (or more). If you know of bad date foods that should be on the worst first date food list and aren't, make sure to add them and know that you're contributing to the greater good of the dating world.
