how can I informed a man my preferences in food without sounding arrogant? I don't like crappy, cheap places where they serve you the usually menu many people would order (I don't eat anything). Secondly, I once got sick (a real terrible stomache) for several days after eating from a very cheap place.

It's the way I was raised at home and my environment is cleaned. I would prefered a decent place. It doesn't have to be a palace but definitely not a cheap place.

Is there a way I can say this (on a date) without offending the man into thinking I'm picky. Well sometimes I am but for good reasons. It's the same as coming well dressed-up if you're a secretary.

Hopefully, you would let him know this ahead of time...say the stage that you two were "getting to know each other."
If he thinks your tastes are too expensive, I`m sure he won`t even bother asking you out to eat.
You would be going to a movie, or bowling.

Yeah can be... after paying for my classes. I guess it makes sense since I'm the only one that knows what gets me sick, gives me allergies or my own tastes.
The only thing I would get upset is if the guy left his plate half full or simply didn't like the food I ordered. I get upset when people eat sooo little since you're the one paying.

The guy will decide where you will go because he is the one asking you out, A classy gentleman won't take you to a cheap place with crappy food.

Although taking a first date to some extremeley expensive place ain't very smart either unless the guy is rich, what if you don't like him? Then he'll have spent a small fortune on you for nothing, thats not very fair to the guy.

This is one of the major attitudes that creates major weight problems.

So it's ok for you to not like certain foods but not ok with you if THEY don't like certain foods? I don't get that one.

Not really... I can be eating large portions of my favorite dish and hardly gain weigh. A guy at my workplace (he's 22 years old) is in the same situation. He eats sooo much and is still skinny.

I guess it has to do with our ages (he's 22 and I'm almost 24) and fast metabolism.
