Which, AFAIK, is damned near all of them. My GF shoots down any of my suggestions and yet will not make any of her own. Mad


There was this lady on death row. When the warden asked her what she wanted for her last meal, replied, "Oh, I don't know. What were you thinking about?"

Ha ha ha ha! my wife and I fight over this all the time. I'm a jerk because I won't pick but she won't pick anything either and that's ok.

I told her to get a bowl, put the restaurant names in it and we will just draw. It's a fight damn near every time we go out.

Where should we eat?

I don't care

How about Joe's?

Nah, not in the mood.

How about Franks?

No that's too far. Don't want Mexican anyway

How about Chang's?

No Chinese tonight. Or Italian. Or BBQ, or pizza.

Ok... What do you want?

I don't care just pick something !

Fine we're going to Sam's

No, I don't like the cheese sticks there.

For fuck sake woman! Where do you want to go?

Don't yell at me, I told you I don't care tonight

Grrrrrr.... Chak chak.....

Me: Where do you want to go for lunch/dinner?

Wife: Oh, I don’t know. Why don’t you pick the place.

Me: OK, “White Castle” it is then.

Wife: NOOOOO!!! Anywhere but there.

Me: But you said for me to pick it.

And that’s when the fight started. Wink

My dining out solution seems to work pretty well.

On Monday or Tuesday, I make a dinner reservation for Friday or Saturday night and then tell her we're eating at x restaurant on y date at z time. Works well 90% of the time as she likes that I thought about it in advance and she can avoid eating her favorite dish prior to the reservation.

It works well for people who eat out once a week, but might not work for people who eat out most meals.

I just learned that I'll have to pick the place and she'll have to live with it. If you don't make a choice, I will.

I tell her to pick or we can stay home. She's the foodie after all.

I have no time for that bullshit, apparently I'm a minority in that regard.

Unless we're on a road trip, we don't eat out. Problem solved.

I do get "what do you want for supper" but that usually goes well too. "Anything I don't have to cook" will get me a dirty look and a sammich...

Sounds perfect to me, does she have a sister?
My response would be “Excellent, then we are staying home and cooking, and saving money, thanks!” “I’m making X, you are welcome to some or fix something yourself.”

This seems to be a common theme.

My current take is if I give you a suggestion and you shut it down I will pick somewhere else. If you shut that place down it's your turn to pick. Pony up and pick. Big Grin

Do people really put "kisses" instead of punctuation in their texts? That would get fucking annoying fast.

Only if you like girls.

My ex would do the "no not there" BS until I said:
I'm not interested in where you *don't* want to eat. Tell me where you want to go or we're going to the first place I mentioned.

Reason #794 she's my ex.

She would have to go into the kitchen first to find it.

My wife and I used to play this game until I just started to use my favorite bbq joint as the default.

Me: where do you want to go?

Her: I don't know, pick something.

Me: ok, we're going to Cottons.

Her: I don't want to go to Cottons again.

me: fine, you have 6 miles to come up with an alternative, otherwise we are eating at Cottons.

It took a while (and a lot of Cottons) to train her but now when I ask her where she wants to eat at she comes up with a plan.
