Is dating a picky eater a dealbreaker for anyone?!

urgh maybe not lol... everything else is so compatible with us... Is it fair to let someone slip away because of this. Its so simple but its a huge issue for me.. And i dont see it getting any better?!

And my purpose every night is not to cook for him, or i would take his likes and dislikes into consideration, like if i was making him a special meal of course i would taylor it to his likes, but everyday should not be just about him... Food is too good to eat the same thing everyday lol.... Think i just answered my own question lol... Thanks everyone. Really put my thinking cap on

to moibec.... I have over the last year tried to cook anything and everything he likes... But when that list consists of chicken with absolutley NO spice on them and ceaser salad.... Bagels... And Pasta with no flavor the list of things you can do when your cooking every night for him is pretty limited... When i am used to flavor and variety in what i eat... I'm all for chicken, i really am, but who wants to eat chicken every single night?! Its pretty east to perfect what he likes,but should it not be about give and take?! How can someone possibly be expected to eat the same thing every night just because they love a person?!
And as for the whole hiding things in the garbage, its sweet he doesnt want to hurt my feelings... thats him very sweet, but he is not being true to himself... And i dont want that either. Guess its just a matter or not if i can live with it huh....

thanks for the help everyone... And we have talked about it, he knows how much it bothers me, and he will make an effort to TRY it, but it always always ends the same, most of it headed for the garbage. He will try to pretend he likes it, then cover it up with garbage in there already. We have been together a year and ate together most of those nights and the only time he gobbles it all up is when its what he likes which leaves me pretty limited. I love to have people love my cooking and he just doesnt despite the efforts he made...

So im at a crossroad with this guy im seeing... We are either going to move forward or cut things lose...So i was making my pro con list, and his eating habbits really bother me. Should this be considered a deal breaker? Its not just picky eating either, he doesnt like cheesecake... (i want someone i can argue over the last piece with) No eggs (who doesnt love sunday morning eggs) Mayo, mustard, mushrooms, the list goes on. Its affecting the way i have to cook, and i LOVE to cook. When we first started dating i thought id be sweet and make him a sandwich (as im known for my sandwich making skills) well there was mustard on it, so he refused to even try it and went insdie to make his own. Ouch. I cook, he picks things out (biggest pet peve) Or he will put all the food i make on his plate to 'try' it and over half ends up in the garbage. Im not a waster so it makes me angry as well... Something I should consider... Or am i crazy to think this will work?! Any suggestions?!
