Will straight guys share a “taste” of dinner?
Last evening a friend and I had a fun dinner out. “How’s your food?” I asked. “Great,” she replied. “Do you want a taste?” she asked while easing her plate a few inches across the table toward me. I traded a fork of my tuna steak for a taste of her lamb.
“This is why eating with gay men is nice,” she said. “Straight men will never take a taste of any one else’s food.”
Straight Guy, does her observation ring true?
I’ve been thinking over my friend’s comment. I usually take a taste if offered. If I don’t remember to offer a taste, it’s usually because I am selfishly hogging my choice. I know I share “tastes” with female friends. And, last week I had dinner with a straight male friend and we traded a forkful each. But, I know that if I asked my dad if he wanted to try a taste of something I ordered, he’d look uncomfortable and decline. You and I don’t eat together much so that's not much help there. So, I’m stumped.
Readers, straight and gay. . . what’s your take on taking a taste? Leave a comment below and help me solve this savory question.
