I don't often go on dates, or rather - I don't go on dates. For a simple reason - I am married. And since my husband was pretty much the only man I went out with and then got married to straight away, I hadn't had much of a dating experience prior to my marriage either. Unfortunately - or rather fortunately - I managed to avoid all the dating stress somehow, and I know it is stressful for a fact.
Everyone has a friend with never ending dating drama, including me. A friend of mine, let's call her Katya, has just started going out with a new man, and the amount of drama she is going through is truly depressing. She stresses over pretty much anything - what to wear, what to say, how to sit, what perfume to choose and other quite common emotions almost everyone experiences before heading to a date. However her recent cause of stress is what to eat on first dates, or for that matter, - what not to eat. As things are, first dates almost always take place in restaurants or other places where you get food. Food connects people.
