Yes!! It’s sooo frustrating!
I have one particular friend who is always watching and commenting about what I eat, I try to avoid her for months now :-/
She seems to hate anorexics, too. Whenever we come across a skinny person she almost always rants about her being anorexic. She doesn’t seem to get that it’s a disease and kind of feels personally attacked by the appearance of others, I don’t know.

I feel you and I hate this with a burning passion. I usually order a drink only or wing some act out. I was lucky with my dates and best friend(had an ed) that we mostly used to just walk A LOT.

I loath this. College-- everything involves eating and drinking.


Also off topic but I get a lot of shit for drinking vodka soda's (listen its the lowest cal thing aside from shots which I do not recommend while starving) and all my friends seem to judge me for it?? Like lay off I'm leaving the house leave me alone.

Literally unbearable. I feel guilty for denying any food people try to give me, but I feel guilty if I eat it. It's a lose-lose.

Over time I just started to feel no shame or awkwardness ordering a pot of tea instead, not just in restaurants, I’ll do it in a bar. I’ll have what I want thanks. I’ll just say if you want to eat please don’t mind me, I’ll start with tea for now and I’ll see later if I’m in the mood for something else (which I won’t be).

I feel this so hard.


I read this book about analyzing literature and there was a whole chapter about eating scenes and they described it as such a communal thing between people that are usually meant to be pleasant (which is what made these scenes important in books/movies/shows). I guess that's the best explanation as to why most social gatherings revolve food?


Still hate it tho lol

I was thinking about this too, because quarantine got me feeling lonely and like I actually want to try dating seriously and making new friends once this all ends. I’m talking to a few people right now and I can’t help but to think that eventually I’m going to have to go for a meal with them. You can only go so many times hanging out without food involved..
