Do you find that your relationships with people who are picky eaters are different from those who will go just about anywhere out to eat with you?

It sucks when the only place a girl wants to go is to get pizza. Really?

I love trying new foods; but several food allergies seem to make others think I'm a picky eater. There are actually very few things I just don't like.

I AM the 'picky' eater. (I, fairly strictly, follow a 'WAPF' type diet, raw dairy, soaked/fermented beans/grains, pasture raised meats/eggs, wild-caught fish, fermented veggies/beverages...)

Good question. Yes, picky eaters tend to get on my nerves. Hate if we order a pizza and all we can get on it is cheese. And people who insist they hate ALL vegetables just blow me away. I don't see how they function.

No, but with my food allergies I tend to be the pickiest eater in the bunch, so that may have something to do with it.

Being with someone who is too picky can be such a drag...

I think being too picky about anything, whether it's food, bugs camping, or something else, can interfere with having fun.

My wife is an extremely picky eater. Her parents tended to give in to her on food a lot when she was growing up. It has been extremely challenging- I nearly broke up with her over it when we were dating. I have zero tolerance for it now and she...

...has learned to figure out ways around it that don't involve asking me to indulge it. I know I may sound like a jerk about it, but it used to be quite debilitating for her and a hard nosed approach has actually helped her to overcome it.

It's even more important, when raising little ones, that you set a good example with eating habits. Good for you.

Im not much of a meat eater and Im not fond of chicken or fish either but its not like I'm skin and bones and nobody is ever miserable when they go out with me.

I have known only one picky eater who was almost impossible to get along with, and thank goodness she wasn't family or a close friend. It wasn't even *good* things she liked; just very very restricted. We have a family member who is picky in general

and also doesn't eat gluten or dairy, and my daughter is vegetarian, but both of them do fine at restaurants or eating in other people's houses. (Except my kid doesn't like fish places.)

Im picky but i always work around them. I go where they want to go or cook what they want to eat. I don't care about me. I'd rather they be happy.

I use to be that person but I'll eat anything now

I am the picky eater out of my family and friends. It sucks! But I can usually find something to eat almost anywhere, as long as they have bread/dessert I'm good.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

Picky eaters are terrible. I almost eat anything from fast food to vegetarian to lobster to exotic dishes like frog legs (yes, tastes like chicken but softer, make it chick). I'd feel restricted going out with a picky eater.

I love adventurous food. I tend to eat at restraunts where picky eaters won't so I end up no seeing them as much.

Sure, they're more difficult to please in many circumstances outside of food options

And food allergies or religious limitation or anything like that don't count in this regard, I mean people who just really only like to eat five different things.

I seem to attract picky eaters! :( I will eat just about any thing once, and most things more than that. My roommate in college and my husband are the pickiest eaters I've ever met.

Oh no, please tell me you're not a picky eater, RJ!

Not in the least. But I have friends who are horrible. And it's such a bummer when they want to go out to eat. It's either a steak house or Italian. No matter what, they only will order NY steak or chicken parmigiana. Everytime. NO seafood!

They won't even go into the restaurant.

I don't understand why they even read the menu. Everyone already knows what they are going to order.

I find picky eaters to be a bit of a buzzkill.
Glad you're not one of them :)

At restaurants that are known to be good, I'll ask them to bring whatever the chef thinks I should have. they love it! And I end up getting to try something very special.

I'm the picky eater, but I can eat at least one thing on the menu everywhere. I just want the exact same one or two items every time.
