Bite Size 11 - Dining With The Enemy

In the midst of many philosophical discussions about food and human relationships, a friend once told me that, for the most part, people will never dine with an enemy unless forced to do so because of protocol or politics in general. Her explanation was that people are very relaxed during mealtimes. Their guard is down, and they are easy to communicate with. They thus want to sup with someone they trust. Anxiety is a bad sauce for digestion.

A spin-off behaviour, she also told me, was that the best place to pick up singles is in a grocery store or cafeteria. This is more relevant for single men, as single women enjoy helping a single man if they have a question about food. They've lowered their guard towards pickup lines in such places. At least, this was the case in the late 80s, when she told me this. However, more than one magazine in the past year says that young women love for a guy to know about food, even cook for them. On the flipside, oddly enough, with the exception of one woman, not a single woman I've dated has ever let me cook for them. (I presume I don't have to explain what was on their minds instead :? )
