Food-related deal breakers when dating?

Since it was brought up in another thread regarding the new Serious Eats Dating thing (and I don't know if it's been posted before), what are some of your food-related deal breakers when it comes to dating? I assume most of you like to cook, so would you date/are you dating someone who hates to cook or doesn't know how? Are there any food likes or dislikes that a potential companion could have that if discovered, would make you think twice about a second date?

I'm currently dating a guy who doesn't cook (his idea of cooking is Kraft Mac and Cheese), and it's a serious problem for me, as someone who runs a food blog and bakes for a living.

Spill the beans, y'all!
