Your date consistently asks for the kids menu
You know who likes to order off the kids menu? Kids. But, as recent studies show, it's not even really their fault. Not only do lil' kids have twice the number of taste buds as adults, making them doubly sensitive to strong flavors, these UK-based scientists also prove that picky eating in toddlerhood is genetic. But it also says that people grow out of those predispositions, so it turns out there's no viable excuse for a grown adult to request a placemat, set of crayons, and, inevitably, a (plastic) plate of chicken fingers and fries.
If you do make it out to a restaurant, it takes approx. 1,000 years to order
"Do you know if that has butter in it? Is the fish of the day fishy at all? Can I get the club sandwich with no lettuce, no tomato, no mayo, untoasted bread, and the bacon on the side?" You know you've sunk pretty low when even the waiter, exhausted from the relentless line of questioning himself, gives you a look of pure pity.
