Halfway through the Question Challenge, and I just wanted to thank everyone so far for participating and writing really thoughtful and amazing responses to the questions. We've got some fierce competitors, let's keep the challenge going mad.
Q: This guy I just starting dating and he's awesome. We have a lot in common, we both love going to the gym, hiking, and exploring! We've only been dating for about 2 weeks now (it's very new) but he's awesome. The only problem is... his eating habits are repulsive. He shoves food into his mouth and chew with his mouth OPEN. I'm usually not picky about this stuff, but it's really a hug pet peeve of mine to chew like that. How can I tell him this bugs me without hurting his feelings? What if it never stops!
Just politely inform him of what he is doing and ask if he could avoid doing that by any chance
HAHAHAHA @JimTurpen and @arnelli win for the funniest comments. I was surprised with how many people this was ALSO a pet peeve (I guess I'm not alone). I think you are all so right about this, just attacking this by letting the person know in the nice way, and seeing if it gets better. @VanessaSimmons @altiar620al @humairaa @atmi @StetsonCampbell @SeoInHan @Bobs @2Distracted @RafaelRese18 @jordanhamilton @1FallenAngel @carmaa10 @VeronicaArtino @MaighdlinS @marshalledgar @TomasOlivares @momattheword It's also going to help him out in the future too you know? like that also just bugs other people too, it could stop some awkward situations in the future.
@JimTurpen ROFL you come up with some of the funniest wisecracks!!! @atmi I can relate with the child chomper!!! We've been trying to break her of this habit since she was a lil girl and she's now 12. For her its she's so engrossed I'm some YouTube video like Good Mythical Morning or some other task she gets ultra zoned in (She also has ADD) that she has no clue shes even doing it at decibel 25+. sooner or later it will take! LOL
I a great with @marshalledgar @TomasOlivares @momattheword but I would also ask if he knows he does that conscientiously. Sometimes we do things (like bad habbits) that we aren't aware of. Also just mention that in a polite way if we make a conscientious effort to do something like chew with our mouth clothes on a regular basis it takes 21 days for it to become a habit...OK well just say what are some of your pet peeves or deal breakers. And then maybe he'll ask yours to get the conversation going.
