Dating foodie

FOOD DATING is a new way of meeting the man or woman of your dreams in an informal atmosphere, with food, some candlelight, a glass of wine and a touch of romance.

Unlike Speed Dating or Slow Dating, there is no pressure and a maximum time limit to sit and talk over several different courses to different people.

If I could have a do-over, I would go to Culinary School. I'll take a picnic over a linen table cloth any day.

As I scrolled down the Eater page a banner ad on the right side caught my attention -- impressive, given my usual blindness to anything that looks like advertising -- "Eater Dating." A site completely devoted to online dating for foodies? The difference from regular online matchmaking services?

How About We is all based on suggesting an intriguing first date, which fits well if you're trying to find someone that's just as food obsessed as you are.

She would always write glowing reviews, because for foodies, the only thing more important than eating free food is making sure the free food doesn’t run out.

So don’t be fooled: foodies are easy to buy, and will write good things about bad things if required. It’s not fun sitting in a nice restaurant watching a steak go cold while the flashes of your girlfriend’s i Phone remind you that everyone is staring. There is the photo of the steak ‘as served’, then the photo of it cut open, then a photo of the accompanying drinks.
