man tells watiress he wants his food separated

Has this happened to you? You’re out with someone at a restaurant, everything is going fine, and then he does something wrong. Maybe it’s how he copies your exact food order, or how he talks to (or looks at!) the waiter or waitress. (Both of these have happened to me.) Or maybe it’s something…else.

He doesn’t like his food groups touching each other, so what else is he afraid of? What does this mean about his personality?


There’s a quiz here on OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), and possibly this man has that. On the other hand, he just may not like stews or casseroles. :)
