There is no bigger argument that couples have on a weekly basis than trying to figure out where to eat. It seems like such an easy question, but it could not be further from easy. It's less threatening to speak Voldemort's name than it is to ask where you want to eat. Here's a step-by-step breakdown of the events that occur when you ask your girlfriend where she'd like to dine.
What a beautiful day spent with the person I love. Wow, nothing could ruin this!
Hey sweetheart, it's almost dinnertime. Where do you want to eat?
"It doesn't matter to me, babe. Whatever you want is fine."
Well, sweetheart, I know you're a little picky with food so just let me know what you'd like to eat and we'll go there.
"No babe, for real, ANYWHERE you want is fine with me. Seriously."
Ok how about Cheesecake Factory?
"Gross. No way."
Well then how about Mexican food?
"Ehhh, I don't really want that."
Then why don't you just tell me where you want to eat because clearly it does matter to you!
"I told you it doesn't matter. Just name 18 places and maybe one of them will sound good."
CLEARLY IT DOES MATTER WHERE WE EAT OR YOU WOULDN'T HAVE SHOT DOWN EVERY PLACE I SUGGESTED!
"Fine. Let's go to Pizza Hut."
YOU ARE THE LITERAL DEVIL! You know that's the one place I can't go because I saw the cashier lick her fingers and then touch my pizza! Why would you say that??
"Well I guess it DOES matter to you where we eat."
I SWEAR I AM GOING TO DRIVE THIS CAR INTO A SWAMP!
I AM PACKING MY STUFF AND LEAVING! GET OUT OF MY LIFE FOREVER!
Oh wait what about Chick-Fil-A?
"Actually yeah! That sounds great."
I love you so much.
"We should get married!"
