Hate Sharing Food

This story isn't actually about me, it's my boyfriend. He absolutely hates sharing food. When I try to take a bite of his food he pretty much freaks out. He will
even go out of his way to make/buy me my own food, just so that he doesn't have to share with me. I can kind of understand why he wants to have his own food, but if I dont actually want one/some of my own, and just want a bite, why can't I? Problem with that is, it usually turns into a couple bites, and this is where he gets mad. Are there more people
like that out there?

Is It Normal?

  • I'll usually let people, but it really pisses me off. I especially hate it if you have a box of granola bars or a bag of chips and they start eating the granola bars and basically finish off the bag of chips. One of my biggest pet peeves!

  • well personally I have to eat special foods because I don't eat meat and have strange allergies so when people eat my food, it sucks. I can't eat their food because if I do, I'll break out in a rash. I can't go buy food all the time and it's expensive. so maybe that's why he's hesitant to let you eat his food. when my friends eat my food I want to hit them, hard

  • You have your own weird little thing that nobody else thinks is a big deal. Maybe you can't stand someone using your hairbrush or borrowing your DVDs without asking. It's just a pet peeve if his, and you need to accept that. Get your own food or restrain yourself.

  • Its the other way around with me and my boyfriend.I don't mind sharing my food with my boyfriend, but the only time I get upset is when he takes a bite without asking first. I'm really big on manners so when he does that, I end up throwing a holy fit,haha.

  • Seems kind of peevish to not share a bite of food with your girlfriend. Is he stingy in other ways?

  • People who don't like to share are inherently self centered and greedy and don't care about anyone but them self. People in general are selfish and possessive of their food a horrible condition for any human to posses. To have immense love over their food more than their family or spouse.

  • Apparently this is normal? My boyfriend hates sharing food. I said he can eat off my plate any time and even have the first bite if he wants but he is very territorial about his own food. When we travel I like to try different flavours like with pizza he orders 3 slices I order 1 I said you can try mine if you like but he doesn't like sharing and cutting a tiny corner off

  • Some of my friends are always, if not, often takes my food, some of them are not even taking it with my permission, they just take it and go away like a bas****. There are about 3 people that always take my food whenever they caught a glimpse of it, and I just hate them when they approach me when I'm eating and take some my food. Sometimes I told them to take all my food instead, I was so angry.

    What grossed my out is not just sharing it, but they also eat those food of mine with my spoon/chopsticks, I don't want to give my own spoon to others, even my own mum. I wanted to tell them not to eat my food in a polite way but I just can't. Because there's a chance that they will get mad at me.

    So I think it is very normal..

  • Okay! Ground rules. I constantly share my food with my boyfriend. I hate sharing my food but I do it because I'd rather share than be a pig. If I don't want to share I offer to buy him his own and when he refuses but then expects me to share mine. NA-UH! And then when he has food that I want a bite of and he refuses to share or get me one of my own. NA-UH!! When you're a guts when it comes to other people's food but are selfish when it comes to your own.. get out. I get it that a lot of people don't like sharing their food. Just don't expect people to share if you're not going to is all I'm saying. It's rude and bad character.

  • My and my girlfriend just had a fight about this, everytime I get takeaway, she immediatley invites her mum to partake, without even asking. The next second it's like a ravenous hoard, and only the bones remain. I made the mistake of commenting and now I look ungenerous!

  • It drives me absolutely freakin crazy when my boyfriend eats my food, I cannot stand it. We'll have two plates, one for each of us and he will STILL eat my food. If we share one plate forget it, he'll eat the majority. I dunno how to tell him cause it shouldn't be a big deal and I know 100% for sure he won't see it from my perspective and will be offended that I don't like sharing. But it's because I'll say all day I'm starving then when it comes to eating, he'll insist on sharing and then he'll eat more than like 2/3 of it and just laugh. I just sit there like what the hell? But it will honestly just start an argument if I say something so I keep quiet. I don't think I'm gonna be able to do that much longer though. It's irritating as fudge.

  • I hate it with a *passion* when someone tries to wheedle 'Can I have a biiiite?' or worse, reaches toward my food. I have warned my friends not to do that to me.

  • NORMAL! A BILLION TIMES YES! My food is my food. Its not about being greedy. It's a personal property.

  • I can't stand to share my food. It makes me anxious and is irritating. No matter what the food is. If someone asks if they can have some, i usually say yes because I'm too passive to say no. But I get ridiculously pissed when some one takes food with out asking. My room mate does this and I want to punch her. Whenever I get french fries or pretzel bites, she takes some without second thought and I think it's so rude. I know not sharing food is a somewhat common thing after recovering from an eating disorder.

  • I think what pisses me (and many other people off) is described by one word:
    " pre·sump·tu·ous

    (of a person or their behavior) failing to observe the limits of what is permitted or appropriate. "

    If I don't like it when you take my food, then you have crossed my line of what is permitted. And THAT is what pisses people off....not some crappy french fry (for example)...who cares about 1 fry!

    It's the fact that someone thinks that it's perfectly fine to ignore you limits and take something from you anyway. It's not that I don't want to share...I'll share my money and buy you a whole bucket of fries if you want to!!! Just leave mine the _ alone! LOL!

    BTW, I don't really like fries anyway...except for McDonalds..they are pretty damn delicious.

  • I have no problem admitting that I am quite food territorial and it's just how I am. To me it feels selfish to take food away from someone or expect it... And just the same I don't ask people for theirs, it's very rare that I'd ever accept if they offered. It's just a feeling I guess that for all I know it could be their only meal that day and I don't want to take it from them. And in the same respect, to me it feels greedy if someone is trying to take mine.

  • I don't mind sharing things. That said I hate when girls have their own plate we went through the same line or looked at the same menu,and she purposely didn't get it because she wanted some of mine. I just say go get your own food,then when she starts bitchin I point to her plate and say "You gonna eat that?" Lol

  • lol I kind of had an opposite problem. My ex would hate when I offered to share food with him, he'd be like "Eat your own damn food!". I was just offering because before he'd always steal food off my plate ;/
