98.3 TRY Social dilemma – My date started eating his dinner before I had mine. Dealbreaker?

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma is about dating… it’s not easy, as you can see. Here is the email I received:

Hi Jaime. I went on a date this weekend, and I don’t know if I’m going to go out with the guy again. The waitress brought my date’s food first and said mine would be ready in a few minutes. My date immediately starts eating. He didn’t even look at me or say anything…he just started eating! By the time my food arrived, her plate was nearly empty. I just felt like that was really rude. He finished eating before I was even halfway done, and I felt like I had to hurry up and finish my dinner. I had a great time with him other than that, but I don’t know if I can top that. I just felt very rude. Do you think I should give it another chance, or is it a dealbreaker? Thank you I like.

I admit that would upset me a bit, but not so much that I wouldn’t give the guy another chance if I liked him other than that, as Jill said. I think he should have asked first, “Do you mind if I start eating?” And then Jill could have said go ahead and that would be it. I’m not sure everyone knows that of course.

Maybe he ate and didn’t even realize it was rude. He probably thought I didn’t want my food to get cold. I say give it another chance. What do you think? Let me know on TRY’s Facebook page.
