Couples Spend 5.5 Days A Year Deciding What To Eat (Video)


Does it feel like it can take forever for you and your partner to land at a restaurant for date night? Well, it’s probably even longer than you think. Buzz60’s Nick Cardona has more.

The average American couple spends 132 hours a year deciding what to eat, new data reveals.

The question “What should we eat?” can be a daunting one for every couple looking to satisfy their appetite.

And a new survey of 2,000 people in committed relationships shows 37 percent of couples regularly have a hard time agreeing on where to eat and just a few (13 percent) saying this isn’t a problem.

The dreaded question “What do you want to eat?” is asked 365 times a year (6.67 times a week for the average couple) — resulting in 2 hours and 32 minutes a week of negotiating on what type of meal to eat.

A unified 11 percent say they never disagree on what type of food to have or when. But for the majority of survey takers, things don’t always work out so smoothly.

When they can’t come to an agreement, men are more likely to settle for whatever their partner wants, according to results.
