What determines the foods we like and don't like? Maybe it has something to do with what our mothers ate while we were still growing in the womb. Or maybe we learn it from others. If your idol hates peas, maybe you won't eat peas either. Same thing for if someone you look up to loves a certain food, that might become your favorite. Bottom line is, there's many different ways that our least favorite foods become that way. The real question is, does hating certain foods make you more or less datable?
Taste buds change, though, just like anything else. They evolve as you get older, and you end up liking things you never liked before and vice versa. You may even develop an aversion to foods because of a bad life situation. Even developing a food allergy could cause you to hate that food as a defense mechanism so you don't have to worry about missing that food. While there might not be scientific evidence of the correlation between your datability and the foods you hate, knowing the right questions to ask is the way to get this insight. Take this food quiz and we'll guess how datable you are!
