I met a guy on a dating app, and after chatting for a while, we decided to meet for dinner at a trendy Italian restaurant in the Meatpacking District.
When we arrived, he seemed like a nice guy, but things started to go downhill when we sat down at our table. He began telling me about how he had just started a new diet and was cutting out all carbs and sugar. I didn't really think much of it at first, but then he started going on and on about how unhealthy everything on the menu was and how he wouldn't be able to eat any of it.
I tried to brush it off and just order something for myself, but he insisted that I shouldn't eat anything either, as it would make him feel guilty for not sticking to his diet. I couldn't believe it. Here I was, starving and looking forward to a nice dinner, and he was basically telling me that I couldn't order anything.
I tried to reason with him, pointing out that there were plenty of healthy options on the menu, but he wouldn't budge. He kept saying that he couldn't be tempted by anything, and that I should just wait until we were done with dinner and go grab a slice of pizza if I was still hungry.
In the end, I gave in and just ordered a salad. But even that was too much for him, and he kept giving me dirty looks every time I took a bite. It was one of the most uncomfortable dinners I've ever had, and I couldn't wait for it to be over.
