Just say it was sooo good and compliment her cooking. Win at least one of them. Lol
110- just because the language is Spanish doesn't meant it's a "Spanish" country. The proper terms would be Latino or Hispanic countries. Also, I am el salvadorian and Uruguayan, and I've lived in both countries for several years. The customs I've grown up with is that you always eat everything that's been given to you, or else you're wasting food, which is disrespectful.
Are you being sarcastic? Mexican and Cuban are not languages. The main language in both countries is Spanish. Now, I know that with the English language, people differentiate between British and American English, and perhaps the same is true for different dialects of Spanish - but that does not mean that people speak Mexican or Cuban, just like I do not speak American.
Never heard that about Spanish/Latino countries, but might be true, though I know that if you're invited to dinner by a person With Arabic heritage and eat everything on the plate, she/he will give you more food, because eating up is a sign that you're not full. Made that mistake at my ex's grandparents.
Hey, at least you aren't one of those food-phobic girls. My bro dated one, she was insane!
That sucks OP. Why not try to be normal next time? Being yourself is usually the best way to make a good impression.
You can't tell people to "be normal" and "be themselves" at the same time, not everyone is normal :P and I don't know why anyone would want to be, that's no fun! Oh if you meant "be normal" as in the op's normal self I guess that's alright.. But I'm pretty sure that is how the op normally is anyway :o
I'm a guy and I eat fast. Not because I'm fat or something but because well always being in a hurry, or because being in a family of paramedics and them being on call all the time we always just ate fast cause you never know when you could get a call. Or I'm just really hungry...
When the father said "Slow the hell down" in my mind it appeared as if she was gulping down the food in order to show her appreciation. When I am at home I eat fast (like a glutton, i admit), but not when I'm trying to make a good first impression. Just eat your food regularly and tell her that you like it! Plain, simple, and you don't look crazy!
How does eating slot show appreciation? I thought that was what Thank You was for?
How does eating fast and a lot show your appreciation? Please... Explain this theory.
"So what are your hobbies"? NOM NOM, I like singing, NOM NOM, and dancing, NOM NOM NOM.
I always thought eating fast means that the food is really good. Or at least edible. I always eat too fast and give myself a tummy ache. But if I didn't like the food I can't eat it.
