can two people with different diet habits really get together?
« on: December 26, 2015, 09:00:57 am »
If she's into pastries, old chang kee and stuff, and he can't eat flour, soy or any dairy other products, possible that the two be together for long or even for a lifetime?

Another scenario, she's a vegetarian and he's a meat eater. Will they grow apart sooner or later unless one of them gives in?

i think maybe will have friction in relationship when it comes to choosing places to eat eg. veg vs meat-lover etc .....

but sometimes can work to advantage eg. galfren loves dessert so can have double-portions every-time .... etc ....

but this is easier to work with than having different set of religion or value-systems (one wants to impress friends while the other is down-to-earth for example).

For me, its ok.
My bf has a different diet habit as compared to mine. He doesn't eat mushroom and seafood etc whereas i love mushroom and seafood.
So, when we are out for meals, for those dishes that come with mushroom and seafood, i will finish them instead of him leaving aside on the plate.
He loves beef whereas i seldom eat them.
Generally, if we go to any restaurants, we just need to make sure that both of us have food to eat.

I think friction will occur. But if meals are prepared with health as the main focus, then I think both people should eat vegetarian at home. If the guy wants to eat meat, he can eat meat on his own during lunch

Depends on how much food is important to you. Some people eat to live, some live to eat. For me it is the latter, because food is my life.  ;D A vegetarian will be a big no for me as a meat lover

I will definitely not date a vegetarian. Can't accept eating veggies everyday.  :-\
