On your last date did you order a salad instead of the juicy hamburger you were hungry for? If you did, you’re not alone because a lot of females change their eating habits in the company of men. It’s a problem that begins in childhood and one school in Witchita, Kansas noticed that single sex lunchrooms made the students more inclined to finish their meals.
“The girls really seem to like it because they get their girl time without having to worry about boys,” said Michael Archibeque, principal at Pleasant Valley Middle School.”
The concept is catching on because this year at least 524 public schools have classrooms that were single sex, up from about a dozen in 2002, according to the National Association for Single-Sex Public Education, reported Reuters.
One woman at Glamour reported that she just ordered mozzarella sticks on a date while the guy ordered a triple-decker sandwich and fries. That’s just sad.
In the early stages of a relationship you want to put the best foot forward and shoveling greasy food in your mouth isn’t attractive. But being someone you’re not and going hungry isn’t either. Enjoy your food no matter what it is and try not to let your nerves get the best of you.
