There is no doubt that food is an experience and an emotion – no matter if you have a Chinese dumpling or tomato soup in front of you. Each flavor makes you feel. It can also either remind you of something from the past (that food you taste that makes you go: “Oh my God, these pancakes remind me of the time I lived in Canada!”. Our girl from the Hungry in Dublin team reveals, that avocado sandwiches and poached eggs remind her of her ex-boyfriend, whom she cared deeply for. Sorry to hear about that breakup but that’s a good example of a food emotion! Whichever it is, it’s believed that when couples have the same taste for food, they tend to be more happy together and thus ending up staying together. You’ll find plenty of blogs to support this and perhaps you already know that what we are writing is true. However, if you need more convincing, then keep on reading our list.
1. WHEN YOU ARE EATING TOGETHER, YOU ARE TRULY CONVERSING
When you are eating together, you are making conversation, no matter how big or small it is. But at least you are not constantly glued to the TV or phone screen. Instead you are somewhat focused on your partner and your meal. You ask questions, share opinions about the food and location choice. While other people rush through meals, you and your SO drag them out for as long as possible.
2. YOU LEARN EVEN MORE ABOUT EACH OTHERS ATTITUDE
What a person chooses to eat says a lot about them. For example: Is your partner vegetarian or vegan? This can mean that he/she has strong morals and are disciplined and dedicated to it (basically they obey rules they set themselves). The broken-hearted Hungry in Dublin girl (she agreed that we can use her situation as an example, so we’re not cruel!) is vegetarian and remembers how her ex-boyfriend tends to look for restaurant specifically designed to her diet requirements. This makes the guy care deeply about her and is actually thinking about her during those meal decisions. And aren’t those great qualities to have when in a relationship?
3. IF YOU CAN AGREE ON A DINER, YOU CAN AGREE ON ANYTHING
We would say that a big, gigantic chunk of arguments that occur in relationships are because one or both of you can’t make a decision on what and where to eat. Are we right here? Probably. There are so many restaurants out there to enjoy a beautiful dinner in Dublin. But of course, there are different types of couples and the ones that love the same type of food, have no fights. No fight, no problem. They just end up going to the place they both enjoy the food being served there. Period.
4. YOU’RE NOT AFRAID TO GET MESSY TOGETHER
Some people are shy or afraid (or both) to indulge in a sloppy, greasy meal, but you and your other half think it’s a hilarious experience that both of you want to have over and over again. Get messy, laugh at the beard he/she has made from the spicy chicken wings 🙂 It’s funny, right?
