    I do.  Funny thing is that in past relationships, I never did this.  Now I do.  He loves food and I like to make sure he eats well.

    It depends on what it is.  For food if it’s something I know he cares about more or it’s neutral either way, I let him have it.  But there are some things that you better believe I’ll take what I want for, typically desserts or the slice of pepperoni pizza with the most pepperonis on it.

    Most of the time, I don’t pay attention to non-food things.  If there is a bigger bowl and a smaller bowl for cereal or whatever, I’ll give him the bigger one because he eats more.

    When it comes to divying up chores?  I’ll take some things I don’t enjoy, but I always hope he’ll say he’s willing to do certain ones (ie. cleaning the bathroom lol).

    Fiance and I get into competitions.  We always try to take the smallest part for ourself, or make it so the other has to take the largest/last piece.  We routinely break the last chip in the bowl to crumbs.

    We were laughing today that the only reason it takes us two weeks to eat a pint of ice cream is because one of us will eat most of it and save the last bit for the other for not wanting to finish the container.  Or either “oh, this was really good, so I saved you the last bite or three.”

    I once told him that he’d better realize I loved him when I let him full on bite my pop tart.  I eat them a particular way, and bites are not part of that way!

    With the exception of a few things (like anything with tofu/paneer), I will give SO the bigger/better one. He always tries to make me happy. so I return the favor as often as possible.

    oh god yes, im always giving him extra/better everything!  even when we are on flights, we always get one of each option and then i will nibble a bit at my food until hes finished and then swap so he gets to taste both meals (he likes airplane food).

    I always give him bigger portions because he eats more than I do, and if I’m the one cooking and accidentally burn the food, I’ll give him the least burnt parts because I feel guilty. Other than that, though, I’m fairly greedy when it comes to food, and I’ve been known to get legitimately upset with him for eating the last of something or eating the best part of something without even offering to share it. I do usually offer to share the last bites or the best parts of something with him, but he knows well enough by now to either refuse, or just take a very small amount, because really, I want it for myself. 

    We don’t live together yet, though, and whenever he spends the night, I do make sure he has a good breakfast and a good packed lunch for the day.

    I definitely do- but he does to so it all evens out. Whenever either of us gets something for the other, we usually give the “best one” to each other. For example: I’ll give him the muffin with the most chocolate chips or the glass with more juice, etc. When we eat pizza, he’ll give me the piece with most pepperoni, because he knows I pick the cheese off (I hate cheese!) and so the toppings are more important to me. 

    I’ll also usually give him “the last one”- but he will usually insist we split it if there’s only one.

    I 100% do this, too. I used to do it for absolutely everything, but I noticed that Fiance does the same thing, so every once in a while I’ll let him leave me the best/last/biggest piece ๐Ÿ™‚

    It depends for us. If it’s something I really like, I usually take the best piece. If it’s one of his favorites, I give it to him. He does always get the bigger piece though.

    When it comes to food, I always let him have first choice. Sometimes he takes the bigger/better peice and sometimes he’s nice and leaves it for me, especially if he knows it’s something I love. What a sweetie <3

    When it comes to chores, we both have different preferences so it works out well.

    Other stuff – I couldn’t say – I don’t pay much attention ๐Ÿ™‚

    I definitely do this. He gets the bigger/better looking portions.

    I am lucky though in the fact that he prefers white meat/no skin and I prefer dark meat/lots of skin. So I don’t have to sacrifice that. Although if he loved it, I’d probably give it to him, because making him happy makes me happy too. 

    Whenever we go out to eat I always give him some of my food (if it’s something he likes) and usually end up giving him more of mine than he gives me of his because I feel like he should get more since he’s bigger.
