First Date? Go Out for Sushi!

When you’re planning a first date, it’s hard to go wrong with sushi. This is according to a study from biological anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher. The results of this study were that, if you take a first date out for sushi, you have a 170% better chance of going out for a second date.

It is difficult to know exactly why this is the case. However, it probably has a lot to do with the kind of environment you get with a sushi restaurant. When you eat sushi, you’re eating a conversation piece. You and your date can discuss your selections as they are brought to you, trading pieces from your plates, and eventually start to get to know each other in a way that you can’t with many other kinds of food.

Further, sushi makes people feel better. It is light and healthy food, encouraging a feeling of vitality while heavier foods leave you feeling lethargic. You and your date are more likely to leave your meal with a positive outlook, and up to keep the date going.
