I do NOT share food, EVARZ. >:L ... Is this normal?

Question Posted Thursday December 29 2011, 5:45 pm

17/f All right so, I HAAAAATE sharing food. Loathe it. Absolutely drives me up the wall! But, I am a female. I know it's all right if men eat a lot. I mean, they're dudes, eating is what they do. But, I'm a lady! A lot of my friends know full well to NEVER touch my plate. I've bitten a friend's hand before for stealing a handful of popcorn... XD But there are acquaintances of mine, who don't know me as well, who are known for mooching. As in, if you have food, they will beg like starving dogs. You may be able to guess, but moochers are my worst enemies. So to not be hypocritical, I never mooch or beg.

But, I always see girls sharing food with each other and laughing, and enjoying themselves. Or people sharing with their boyfriends. I wanna know, is it normal to not be able to share food without veins popping out of your head from irritation? Are there people out there like me?

Also, are there maybe some psychological reasons behind it? I'm just wondering. :3

this reminds me of two distinct varieties of primates I ran across in my Anthropology book a few months back- one type is a smorgasborg feeder, they eat communally and share food. the other has developed larger cheek pouches to match their lone feeding behavior. Its all in your preference. I guard my food, but have been known to tolerate my former girlfriend's habit of messing with my food because I got something out of it, namely sex. If you don't like people fucking with your food, then people had better accept it and get their own.

I'm like you, for a few reasons.

Firstly, I'm weirded out by other peoples' saliva, so any sort of utensil sharing or potential spit transfer is out. I'm even grossed out by sharing a glass of water with my husband. It freaks me out so badly when someone asks for a sip of my water or a bite of my ice cream.

The other reason for me is that (going with your popcorn example) I get the amount of popcorn that I want. I go into it expecting to have a certain amount, and when someone throws off the balance by demanding a handful, it bothers me. It feels like they're stealing what's mine. My husband has learned that he can't expect me to share unless we've agreed upon it ahead of time.

Everyone has their quirks. Yours just happens to be food sharing.

I am a mooch and my primary target is my boyfriend. Anytime I steal food off his plate (which is almost everyday) he rants about my rotten sense of entitlement. So, there are definitely people like you out there. I don't think there are any psychological reasons behind it, however. We all have our pet peeves and this is just yours.
