Wondering what to eat on a first date? We have some good news: If anyone has ever told you to order a salad on a first date, you should probably stop going to that person for dating advice. There's literally nothing impressive about eating a salad—unless you count somehow making it through your meal without getting kale stuck in your teeth. But finishing off a cheeseburger and a plate of french fries because that's what you've been craving all week and you don't care what your date thinks? Now that's impressive.
A new study that came out from Tinder and GrubHub is here to remind you that when it comes to what to eat on a date, whatever the hell you want is probably your best option. The two companies teamed up to survey users about their dating and eating habits, and they found that 62 percent of Tinder users prefer something hearty on the first date, as opposed to something salad-adjacent.
There's also a 69 percent chance your date will let you steal food off their plate, so no need to fret if you can't decide between sweet potato fries and regular fries. The study also found that 64 percent of Tinder users don’t consider it a dealbreaker if their date doesn't offer to pick up the bill—which is great!—while 56 percent of users might not agree to a second date if you eat sushi with a fork. But like, who does that?
Probably the least surprising piece of data the study collected is that most people prefer to spend their third date ordering in rather than going out. But really, is there anything better than delivery & chill?
