    I went to a pub for something to eat with my boyfriend. I ordered chilli and rice for myself and a salmon meal for him. When the food arrived we started eating it and after a mouthful i said 'its hot this chilli' and put the folk down to have a break lol. He took my plate and with my folk put some in his mouth, realised it was hot and a bit fell out of his mouth back onto my plate. I didnt say anything/tell him off but it kind of put me off eating it a bit lol even though i still finished it. Its annoying little things like this that he does that secretly wind me up.

    Do most couples do this, is it me who needs to lighten up or would it annoy most people?

    Just be honest as if its me i'l try to change.

    Do you know if he'd noticed what he'd done at the time? If he'd done it knowingly but just carried on then I can see your point. Although there's a chance that he's just very laid back and didn't see the point in bringing it up.

    Is the problem in the fact he took some of your food, or that the food, um, slipped back out...?

    He knew that he'd put my folk in his mouth but he possibly didnt know that some fell out his mouth lol. Its like he spat a bit out cause its too hot. Its not a big issue i dont want to make it one thats why i said nothing to him but i just thought 'how dare he, that was disgusting' lol. I can be funny about things though like im not really keen on kissing that annoys me too sometimes (even though it shouldnt) thats why im wondering if in other situations its me getting annoyed at stuff that i shouldnt.

    I wouldnt of minded if he'd took some with his own folk thats fine. When he took my folk I thought to myself 'just use your own bloody folk' but told myself to get over it..and then when a piece fell out on to the meal that just made me quietly annoyed.

    You can be a hard worker and still be a slob. A slobis someone who is messy and dirty and has no table manners.

    If someone messed with my food like that, it'd kill my appetite and put me in a bad mood.

    It's good you didn't let that put you off and were able to laugh about it, but maybe you should talk to him about your rules of eating together, if you have any..

    Personally i think its disgusting, id hate it if that happened to me. I think you should have told him. If t happens again definitely tell him off but in a nice way cos he shouldve spat it back out in his own plate. I dont even like drinking from the same cup or bottle that someone else used even if it was my boyfriend and i never have done as the thought of other peoples spit in my food and drink makes me feel sick but for some strange reason kissing a partner is different. But i would not have finished the meal because it would have put me off

    Surely you share saliva anyway, you're boyfriend and girlfriend... When you kiss there'll of his mouth involved than was on that fork. But still bit rubbish manners.
