Sadly it is true.

Well, if hadn't seen you around here for a few years now I would just figured it was a troll post.

I have no doubt the OP is telling the truth. I've had dates no, GIRLFRIENDS that behaved very much like this.

This was my first thought too. She's a health nut and agreed to dinner at Outback? Sounds more like she's just a plain nut.

How did they make it to girlfriend status? That sort of behaviour is really annoying!

I think food is a huge area of compatibility that should be considered in the beginning of a relationship. You guys aren't compatible, plus she seems a bit rude and pushy. Find someone who enjoys the sort of lifestyle you enjoy. I personally don't really want to date a steak eater either, both for environmental reasons and because I cook mostly vegan/vegetarian food and I want to make sure they're going to enjoy my cooking. But I also wouldn't find an unhealthy eater to date and then try to change them.

Your meal choices sound delicious to me. I would’ve ordered dessert too. Lol.

I suppose I'm a health nut. I DO go to the gym every day and I'm practically vegetarian- I might have fish once a week. I'm dating a wonderful, teddy-bear shaped man who likes cheese on everything. One of the things he makes at home in his crock-pot is "little smokies" mini-hot dogs cooked in BBQ sauce mixed with grape jelly. Holy high-fructose corn syrup!

When I make dinner for him at my place, it's usually fish with a side of quinoa or something similar with vegetables. He likes bread with dinner and the grocery store sells a brand of small loaves that are partly baked- you freeze them and heat them up just before eating. I have one piece, he has two and he puts butter on his. In restaurants I can always find something I like. I go a little "out of bounds" but not that much, so no harm done. And I NEVER lecture him about what he's eating or tell him what he should order.

I agree that in the OP's case it's not the woman's eating habits that are a problem- it's her need to control.
