My boyfriend eats like a “pig”

Dear Bella: I have a serious problem with my new boyfriend. He is wonderful and the whole nine yards, but he eats like a pig whenever we go out.

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.

Bella.

    If Jesus had dinner at zacchaeus’s (the tax collector) house, why complain to us. Just talk to him. He will definately change at your advantage.

    my dear talk to him about his bad eating habits. if it doesn’t help then put him to sit and train him. i believe that it will work. once he know that you are concern about his eating habbits then he may mostlikely change for you.

    Let the man eat his food, he is getting ready for when we will have a lot of money to buy food and there will be no food. U have a good man if that’s the only problem u have with him. What about those that just go and sleep in the night praying for day to come just to get out of the house? That’s no problem darling just speak to him.

    Wow, some women complain about an abusive partner or a cheating partner, but your only gripe is his table etiquette!!!Women cannot be pleased, perhaps you should leave him to find one of those abusive player types that attended finishing school, that will show him who’s boss.

    Dee Dee it is a seen. Gluttony is a sin according to research and my full understanding.
    her goes:Seven Deadly Sins
    Lust
    Gluttony
    Greed
    Sloth
    Wrath
    Envy
    Pride

    Here goes again:
    Gluttony in the Bible:
    Proverbs 23:20-21 “Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.”
    Proverbs 28:7 “Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.”
    Proverbs 23:2 “And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.”

    Sick people don’t eat, only heathy ones eat!
    Healthy people eat good food
    But greedy people eat too much food!

    Talk to your boy friend about the food problem.

    Lady speak with you partner & let him know how you feel about this, but do it respectfully. He may not be aware of it or never had someone show him proper food etiquette.

    Let the man eat.Whenever he coughs you will get a little more food in your plate,cause i guess you will be facing him..Or if you prefer,just watch him eat and don’t eat yourself.

    My friend according to the Bible your bf is committing one of the most deadly sins- Gluttony!.

    I would insist that you talk to him and maybe take a video of him in his act- email it to him. That should give him some time to look at his pigacronastic ways. He needs to be prayed for and maybe you should talk to the religious leader in your community. He has developed an over burdensomely love for something he should be in control of. The brother needs to slow down- the food aint running from his plate the only things running in it are either his fingers or cutlery.

    if he refuses to change- then leave him before his gross mannerism starts rubbing on you and before you know it- you may have two pigs eating on a table. So try your best to curb his enthusiasm for being too excited when he sees or smells food.

    When you dumping him do it near a pig pen so he can peacefully unite with his lost brothers and sisters.

    What a shame. Guess he was raised with lots of pigs and other terrible animals- it’s in his nature you can’t change him. Let him go be with his crowd- the gluttonies!

    oooooooops this is very embarrasing and I would not go out in the public to eat with someone like this. He needs to be spoken to. Let him know how this embarrasses you, and that you don’t enjoy yourself or rather your meal when this happens. Trust me if he genuily loves you he will please you.

    You boyfriend have a love-affair with food, give him a blue-clax and see how fast he will slow down under a vent meneh….lol. Doh do dat nah girl. Joke I making. Well talk to him and train him, if it doesn’t work, when all you go a place with food, ask them politely to put his own in a doggy (or piggy) bag. Lol. So he can chow down in the privacy of his home, otherwise, bring a bavette (bib) for him and a change of shirt lol… and put him in a secluded hidden corner to eat when all you around people! Besides if that his only problem, you still lucky nobody’s perfect.

    Eat, your response was very amusing, and it made me laugh continously for a whole minute. Your mention of the local foods was particularly funny. But really, this is no joke. As most responders suggested, talking to the guy is a good solution.
