Decoding your Date based on his Dessert

Cru Key Lime Pie

Over the years I’ve been told time and time again that I have a really random and strange talent: the ability to analyze men by their favorite desserts. All it takes is a 2 word dessert name text from a girlfriend and I’m off and running, producing a pretty thorough profile of a guy’s key traits. No idea how this gift was bestowed on me but it’s too bizarre to not share with you. Here’s what you should know about a guy into the following desserts:

Key Lime Pie
•    If you capture his heart, he’s in it for the long haul
•    Outgoing and tends to be ballsy when it comes to his career
•    Generally well liked but sometimes lacks a “filter” and can ruffle feathers
•    Can be domineering in a relationship and likes to win an argument

Carrot Cake
•    Very loyal/ a “one woman man”
•    Affectionate
•    Creative
•    Can get a little preoccupied and you sometimes can feel like your relationship takes a backseat to his other hobbies and projects

Crème Brulee
•    Sometimes has trouble trusting others, but this skepticism has led him to really suss people out and he’s come out with a very solid network of people he knows have his back
•    Can be overly discerning/picky about everything from his food, to his clothes, to where he stays on vacation but it’s only because he has a clear sense of what he wants
•    Very close to his parents (especially mom) and siblings
•    Sometimes bottles up his anger only to later have it erupt

Sweet ‘n Salty
•    Adventurous
•    Has a child-like enthusiasm towards life
•    When stressed, tends to shut his loved ones out but only because he doesn’t want his mood to effect them
•    Can be too agreeable/avoid confrontation
