The only man a girl can depend on is her daddy! Those inimitable words from Frenchie in Grease might be true but really, there are few things in the world better than boys. One thing that definitely is – food!
1. You Can’t Live without It!
You physically cannot live without food, and though at times it might not feel like it, you can actually go on fine without the help of a boy!
2. The Only Protection You Need is a Bib!
A good old bib will save you from all of the negative possibilities of having a food feast. Much easier than all the precautions you have to take with boys!
3. Food Babies Aren’t for Life!
We are all familiar with the good old food baby, but the plus side compared to a real baby is that you can easily work it off and you don’t have to pay for it until it turns 18!
4. 1am Booty Calls Are Acceptable!
You can phone up your favorite take out and order food at 1am any day of the week without judgment. A food booty call is way more acceptable than a guy hook up!
5. Food Smells Delicious!
Is the smell of delicious dinner more enjoyable than the smell of a boy who might be wearing cologne that you don’t like? Of course it is!
6. You Can Blow in Public!
You can blow on hot food in public to your heart’s content, but, ahem, it’s a little less accepted to blow on a hot guy in front of others!
7. Food Has No Expectations
Food is just there for you to satisfy you whenever you need it. It doesn’t call you the next day to ask where the relationship is going!
8. No Complications if You Don’t like It
If you try a food one time and decide you hate it, you can cut all ties very easily. This is sadly not the case with any messy romantic relationships that break down!
9. Cheese is a Good Thing
In a relationship, if things start to get a little too cheesy then it can become awkward and uncomfortable, whereas when it comes to food, the more cheese the better!
10. Papa John is Never Late to a Date
While Richard or David or Enrique might let your down and cancel, Papa John’s is never going to be late for a date that you have organized!
11. You Don’t Mind Sloppy Seconds
Dating your friend’s ex is definitely a no go area, but if you BFF has some tasty takeout leftovers, you should have no problem in claiming what was once hers as your own!
12. You Can Customize Food
When ordering food, you can pretty much have it customized to your exact requirement and specifications. With boys it’s a much more mixed bag that you can’t control!
13. It Mixes with Booze!
Food and alcohol is pretty much a match made in heaven, whereas when you mix boys and alcohol, only bad and regrettable things can happen!
14. Putting Food on Freeze is Easy
You can always put your food in the freezer to keep it on ice until you are ready to revisit it. Unfortunately with relationships the option to put everything on temporary pause is a lot harder!
15. No Rivalries with Friends
It’s actually a good thing when you and your friends love the same foods, but when it comes to boys, having a joint crush can be very messy!
16. There’s Always Good Food
The grocery store is always full of tasty foods when you are in the mood, however the choice of boys might not always be as plentiful!
17. You Can Change Your Mind
It’s easy to change your mind mid-meal at home and grab something different, but it’s not so easy if you get bored of your new boyfriend!
18. You Don’t Have to Shave Your Legs!
That Chinese takeout doesn’t give a damn whether you have shaved your legs or not. It’s going to love you just the same!
19. Food Will Always Comfort You
Food will always be there to comfort you when you return home from a hard day. The same cannot always be said for a partner who might not be so willing to help!
20. Food Will Stand by You
Food is more than happy to stay with you while you decide to binge watch the whole of Friends again on Netflix. Food understands that it’s important!
21. Food Doesn't Mind What You Wear
You don't have to get dressed up and put makeup on to have a date with food.
22. Food Never Judges
The beauty of food is that it never judges you. It simply sits and accompanies you in silence, ready to help out with the time comes!
