His Girlfriend’s Childish Eating Habits Drive Him to the Brink of Insanity

A man refuses to take his girlfriend to a nice restaurant, because he says she has the palette of a 10 year old, and it’s a waste of money to dine out with her.

She Eats Like a Child

This man has a girlfriend who is an incredibly picky eater. His girlfriend eats like she is 10 years old. 

The man says his girlfriend refuses to eat pretty much everything, including: unflavored water, fish (excluding fried shrimp), anything with bones, cheese other than sharp cheddar, spinach, onions, garlic, pasta without red sauce, eggs, spicy food, aioli, ketchup, potatoes (other than French fries), pastries with fruit, citrus, sausage or any “non-American” food. 

In contrast, he has a much more adventurous palate, having grown up in multiple regions of the US and lived abroad for a few years.

They Still Love Dining Out

Despite the stark difference in their food preferences, the man and his girlfriend still enjoy dining out together.

Whenever they go somewhere nice, their girlfriend usually orders the same meals, typically a burger or chicken tenders and fries.

Even when they visit an authentic Nepalese restaurant, she will order the French fries and white rice.

She Enjoys Plain Food

He finds this embarrassing, particularly when they are dining at a restaurant with a dress code, and their girlfriend orders such simple, mundane foods. 

Since the man usually pays for the meals, he feels frustrated that he is paying a premium for food that they could easily get from the freezer section at Walmart for a fraction of the cost.

Recently, a new, high-end dinner place opened in their area, which his girlfriend eagerly anticipated.

He Knew What She’d Order

When the man looked at the menu and saw the prices, he realized his girlfriend would likely order the same chicken tenders as always. 

Frustrated, he questioned the point of going out to eat if they were just going to order food that they could easily make at home. 

When his girlfriend asked why he had an attitude, the man explained that he felt it was a waste of time and money to go to a nice restaurant, only to order food intended for children. 

Kid Remark Causes Argument

His girlfriend interpreted this as the man calling her a little kid, which caused an argument between the two.

He said if she’s going to order food they can easily make at home, there’s no point in going out. 

Now he wonders if he was wrong for commenting on her meal preferences. 

“I Don’t See the Point”

It seemed like Redditors overwhelmingly sided with the man here. PilotEnvironmental46 wrote, “I don’t see the point in taking her to an expensive restaurant with a very specific type of cuisine, and her getting fries or chicken fingers. Why is she dying to go there anyway?”

Another offered a solution, “Why can’t she pay this time? If she wants to go to the restaurant, she can pay for the meal and order whatever she wants.”

What do you think? Should she just pay for the expensive food if she wants to go so bad, or was he right to say something?
