    I get home before my girlfriend and normally have to wait an hour or two before eating. Also breakfast, does anyone eat breakfast with their nearest and dearest during the week!? I imagine that if everyone ate with other people there would be less obesity.

    You have to wait one complete hour to be able to eat with her?

    I guess this is one of the great hardships all the ancient texts warned us of, they truly are a sign of the approaching end times.

    This is a good thread.

    Social eating, to do, or not to do.

    Why? Do you eat less if you wait or something?

    You eat less when talking, sharing etc.
  • Deleted user 24 May 2012 18:03:07
    I think the theory is you eat slower, not necessarily less.

    Yes I do, it's called 69.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    I hate eating with other people.

    I like to eat like a glutton and with great haste, I don't need the judgemental looks while I pile it in my fat gob.

    No, if I wanted to talk to people I wouldn't be eating.

    Always eat with the wife, but we both wolf down the meal in front of the TV without saying a word to each other. Married life.

    My flat mate, who is also my partner, albeit only in the business sense, insists we eat together as much as possible. I appreciate it; reminds me of home.

    This. But only if I'm eating something disgusting, like fried chicken or American style pizza (tomato base and covered in grated cheese as opposed to authentic Italian pizza)

    If you don't then deep down you really hate each other, you are just too afraid to admit it. Often this can be attributed to a childhood trauma, usually charging into your parents room a witnessing one of your parents performing oral sex on a complete stranger.

    I eat with the wife once or twice a week at most.
    I breakfast with the kids during the week which I love.
    In the evenings I usually dine alone after 8pm on the food that better be on the table.

    Agreed. Dirty awesome takeaway much better enjoyed alone. Going out for dinner with the Ms is on the opposite end of the awesome food scale.
  • Deleted user 24 May 2012 19:43:14
    Sounds like you hate her.

    Me and my much better half work at opposite ends of the day, so it's actually pretty rare we're together at a mealtime, but if we are, then yeah, we eat together. Why wouldn't you?

    The one adsvantage of not eating together all that much is that when we go out for dinner, we're chatting away the whole time like we're on a date, as opposed to most couples who stare at the wall behind their partners head, nary saying a word to each other as they wolf down their grub so they can get out of this akwardness ASAP.

    I eat tea with the missus and kids every night. It involves me getting to work at 6am so I can get away at 5pm on the dot. But for family life i think it's important.

    I was raised to believe that eating should always be a social thing. Unless it's with them disgusting fatties.

    Girlfriend works mainly evening shifts but when we can have dinner together we relish it, at the dinner table (watching TV while eating isn't good for the digestion). Same goes for breakfast (weekends only). It does help though that she's an awesome cook \o/

    Yeah, we sit down for food together every night really. Isn't that what normal people do? Those that don't - do you eat in seperate rooms or something? Cos that's just odd.

    On a more interesting note, is it tea, dinner or supper?

    More often than not we eat together, but sometimes we are hungry at different times or want different things, so not always. It's not a big deal though.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
