No idea I think he's joking and it isn't a refrence to anything.

I'd prefer someone to be honest, too, but this is pretty harmless. As someone who has anxiety, I can understand someone being scared/shy and creating a white lie like this. It's a pretty harmless one, so I personally wouldn't be too bothered by it. I'd just pull her aside and explain that it wouldn't bother me that she's never tried food I like, and that's it's part of the fun to show each other our likes. If this white lie was her only fault and OP liked the rest of her personality, I honestly think it's a bit ridiculous to never go on a date with her again.

I have anxiety too but when I went on dates I was always honest about myself. If we don't have things in common I'm not gonna pretend we do just to get a boyfriend. I'm able to relax and tell myself if we don't have anything in common then that's ok. Lying on a first date is just dumb, they're going to find out eventually and it's better to just be honest up front so there isn't heartbreak later. When you lie on a date you're just hurting yourself in the long run.

#29- I understand what you're saying, but just because your anxiety doesn't work like this doesn't mean it isn't how it works for other people. I've never lied to someone I'm interested in about my interests either, but that doesn't mean other people don't because of their anxiety. It's not like she lied about being in a relationship already- she lied about food. Hell, maybe she didn't lie and she actually did try it once when she was a kid. I'm just giving her the benefit of the doubt here, because anxiety can be a hell of a thing.

It is quite possible she has had sushi but maybe not in a restaurant but from a shop. She might just not have had wasabi before and lots of people who eat sushi can't use chop sticks. Unless you think she lied and that is a deal breaker for you, I personally don't think I would stop seeing someone because of a few mishaps such as this. Good luck with your next date though, plenty of fish in the sea :P

I have eaten sushi at restaurants a few times before, but I'm still pretty damn terrible at eating with chop sticks. But thinking guacamole goes with sushi is kind of silly imo, but still not a reason to assume she hasn't ever had sushi before.

She probably had sushi before grocery stores sale it not all sushi has Wasabi when bough in stores like that. I love sushi and I eat it with my fingers because I suck at using chopsticks. Hell for the longest time I didn't know what the ginger was for lol.

Agreed #2. I'd give her the benefit of the doubt. Who knows what it really was? "Have you had sushi?" versus "Would you like sushi?" can easily be misunderstood, especially if you are nervous and excited for a date. And if you haven't been to a sushi restaurant, you don't see the importance of correcting that misunderstanding, obviously until you get there and have no clue what you are doing. She was probably mortified from one blunder to the next. What a day! If you like her otherwise, give her a chance. Ask to go to HER favourite restaurant. Date number two is a lot less pressure, and it will be nice to see her in a more comfortable element. Dating can be nerve racking, especially for people who don't do it often, but you don't want to miss out on an awesome relationship if there is potent for a good thing here... Who knows? This could be the beginning of an awesome 50th anniversary speech! Good luck OP! ;)

You can better be honest to prevent embarrassing situation like this. It would be better if she said, I never had sushi but would like to try it

Yeah, I was gonna say, if your hands are clean (I always wash mine as soon as I get into the sushi restaurant and have put my coat down) then just use your fingers. Using chop sticks for it to me is sort of odd, same as using spoons to drink the miso. It's finger food; it's like using a knife and fork for your sandwiches. Fingers are easier and more fun. :) (Having said that, some of the food actually does require utensils like chop sticks. But not the actual rolls).

#54, I'm going to give you the non-douchebag answer: Hold them like pencils in your dominant hand, and move only the top chopstick up and down to grab it. Just practice at it like that, and you should be able to do it a little easier!

24 a little fibbing could mean they were either nervous or they're a liar. It's better just to be honest on date so you don't get hurt later because of some little fibs you told at the beginning of a relationship. If you have to lie about the kind of person you are on a date then you're dating the wrong person.

"Im sorry, this will not work out. You....you said you had sushi before and you didnt. How could you?" Come on man. It was a little white lie that she told. Maybe he told her he wanted sushi so she did it for him.

And this is why honesty is always the best policy, ladies and gentlemen. Trust me: If you just admit you've never had/done something before but also show a willingness to try it, you are so much more attractive than when you try to impress someone by lying and then ultimately making a fool out of yourself.
