It’s not easy dating a vegetarian, we understand! It becomes all the more difficult when you plan to go out for dinner. Some vegetarian partners wouldn’t like you calling for non-veg food, while some are comfortable as long as you’re not forcing them to eat.
Here are 5 tips that will ensure a smooth date on the food front…
Check the Menu First
Just because it’s your favourite restaurant, doesn’t mean you take them there. First find out if they serve veg food and if yes, do they have a wide selection of meals for vegetarians? If they don’t, there’s no point going there. Not only will your partner be disappointed, you may find that they won’t want a second date.
Don’t Try Sneaking Meat in Their Food
This is downright disrespectful, trust us! You might do it just for fun, but that’s not funny. Sometimes people can go really violent if they haven’t eaten meat in years. So, don’t even think of having fun like this.
You Could Turn Veg For Sometime
We know you’re a hardcore non-vegetarian but there’s no harm in enjoying some veg meal once in a while. They aren’t bland or tasteless like they’re usually portrayed. Your partner will love you for this and don’t forget that veg meals are lighter on the wallet.
Don’t Expect Them to Change Their Eating Habits
This is not right! You can’t question someone about how can they not eat meat? or tell them that it’s high time they change themselves and turn non-vegetarian. If they are comfortable eating veg, let them. And if your partner has no problem with you enjoying a steak or burger in front of him/her, you should be happy. Who says it’s important to change your eating habits in a relationship.
Don’t Wave Meat in Their Face
Yes, this may seem like common sense to most people but it happens more often. You might not realise it while you’re talking to them. So, if you must have non-veg, get your etiquette right or you’ll look like an idiot.
