Obviously, it is a bad eating habit to poke everything into his mouth, then talk while eating. Even more embarrassing is when some of the food slurps from his mouth. My friends have noticed and have complained to me.
My parents were the latest to complain. We invited him to a family reunion dinner and as soon as the prayer was completed, he dived into the food. He was not even conversational. He just ate and ate like a pig.
This is seriously turning me off, but otherwise he is a good guy. What should I do?
Dear Miss: I did not see where you spoke about talking to him about his bad eating habits. If you haven’t done so please tell him. If you love your boyfriend why allow him to be a pappy show and to further embarrass you? Either you’re liking it or hating it. Do something about it. Do not sit and complain. He is your boyfriend for God-sake.
