Heading out to a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner? Whether it’s your first date or you’ve been married for 20 years, do yourself and your date a favor and don’t order any of these mood-killer meals:

Beans: The more you eat them the more you… enough said.

Whole lobster/crab: This one is from personal experience. It’s hard to look at someone romantically while they are ripping apart a creature from the bottom of the sea with their bare hands.

Spinach: It will end up stuck in your teeth.

Garlic bread: Unless, of course, your date is eating it as well.

Wings and ribs: Any menu item that comes with a Wet Nap should be avoided at all costs.

Spaghetti and meatballs: Let’s be honest, the date is not going to turn out like Lady and the Tramp. Instead, it’s more likely to end up like Lady and the Spaghetti Sauce in Her Lap.

Hamburgers bigger than your mouth: It won’t be pretty to watch.

Spicy foods: If you need to use your napkin as a sweat rag, the meal is too spicy for a Valentine’s dinner date.

Soup: Slurping sounds are not romantic.

Dollar menu: If you’re going to take your date to a fast-food joint for Valentine’s Day, at least make it romantic and super-size it.
