If you order THIS food while you're on a date, it could make it much tougher to get a second date!

There is no shortage of foods out there that can be off-putting, especially if you're on a first date and you're trying to be on your best behavior and put your best foot forward. Ordering foods that are heavy on garlic isn't a good idea. Nor is taking your date to a restaurant that's known for having a more exotic menu (unless you know ahead of time they like that kind of food.)

But if you order THIS food, over half of Minnesotans say it's a deal-breaker and will pretty much kill your chances of going out with them again. What is it? It's ordering a well-done steak.

That's right, if you order a big 'ol t-bone steak but request that it's cooked well-done, well, goodnight, take the 'l' out of loverboy, it's over, boy. At least, that's the word from this new survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of JBS USA.

2021 Twin Cities Summer Jam

It says that out of 2,000 people surveyed, 53 percent of them claim they wouldn’t date someone who liked their steak prepared in a different way than they did-- especially if that steak is prepared well-done.

Now, it also noted that here in Minnesota (and across the Midwest), 3 out of 4 respondents are so particular about how their steak is prepared, they'd rather grill it themselves! (I've been to those grill-your-own-steak restaurants, but I always find myself worried I'm going to ruin it-- I'd rather have the pros at the restaurant cook it for me...)

There is some good news, though. The survey also claimed that 62 percent of us here in Minnesota are willing to pretty much eat whatever is put in front of us while on a date, even if we wouldn't necessarily order it ourselves while out at a restaurant.
