1. You get to eat the bits they pick out of their food.

3. Asking "what do you want?" when you go to get food always has a longer answer than you'd anticipate.

4. Although in time you've practically memorised some of their more complicated orders.

5. When it comes to anniversaries, fancy restaurants with limited menus are completely out of the question.


6. You start to become genuinely upset on your S.O.'s behalf when they order food but it has their dreaded ingredient in it.


7. So to eliminate this risk, they end up being responsible for deciding where to eat on date nights.

8. And if you choose somewhere, it will involve a lot of online research.


9. But you both have to make an effort to ensure you don't go to the same place every time.

10. Cooking at home proves to be a lot easier for everyone.

11. But the first time was probably a little bit nerve-racking.


12. No matter how long you've been together, you're always finding out about food you didn't realise they disliked.


13. And sometimes you find them out through trial and error.

15. And when it comes to giving gifts, a big bar of their favourite chocolate is always a much safer option than getting a variety box.

17. But you know when they do try a new food it's a huge deal.

18. And when a new food becomes one of their favourites, it's even better.
