This is spaghetti and meatballs.
This is me eating spaghetti and meatballs. Notice that the world is usually pretty balck and white and messy when I eat spaghetti and meatballs. It's not a pretty sight, I've abviously broken the color filter on the camera.
Spaghetti is the number one food couples should not attempt to feed each other...
1. Spaghetti. Eating spaghetti by myself is a chore. I always end up with sauce all over my face and noodles falling out of my mouth (please tell me I'm not the only one). I can't even imagine what it would be like to have a set of hands that aren't mine feeding me this messy dish. It would most likely end in the restaurant being cleared out because our fellow diners are disgusted. The Lady And The Tramp thing is just a fantasy!
2. Fondue. Fondue is romantic ... in theory. Many fondue restaurants have low lighting, intimate seating and romantic candles. That doesn't mean you and your man need to attempt to be as romantic as the restaurant and feed each other fondue. Do you want him to get scalding hot cheese on your chin? Do you want to stain his shirt with chocolate? Just use your own fondue fork and feed yourself.
3. Barbecue. Where I'm from in Florida, there are BBQ restaurants everywhere. None of them are romantic, but they're delicious. Nothing is better on a bad day than some good ribs with mac and cheese. However, I'm kind of embarrassed to even eat that meal in a restaurant. I would much prefer to eat it alone in my bed while watching bad TV (don't judge me). And yet . . . I've seen people do this.
4. Burgers. There is nothing yummier (and more sinful) than a hot, juicy burger in your own two hands. Did you hear that? Your own two hands. You don't want all of the toppings falling onto your lap: not cute. Also, come on, you guys can feed each other in the privacy of your own home -- the other diners (even the couples) don't want to see that kind of stuff!
Now, here's a romantic meal including grapefruit:
