One of my favorite starters are BBQ ribs dipped in sauce. They are so fattening but taste so good.
Sometimes they are very meaty and you can use your knife and fork to eat them. Other times it is impossible to do this and you need to lift them.
The other night I had to lift my BBQ ribs which were heavily coated in sauce. My hands were totally soiled but even worse than that was my mouth and cheeks.
I had managed to cover myself. I am so glad it was not a first date as this would have definately put the guy off. Luckily my boyfriend just laughed it off.
If you want safe foods to eat on a first date i.e those that will not leave you messy go for soup or breads.
