You just started dating a great new guy and you're completely smitten by him. You've been spending a lot of time together and you're starting to learn about each other's quirks and insecurities. While your parents put a lot of emphasis on table manners growing up, his clearly did not. At first you thought he was just being funny, but you quickly learned that he chews with his mouth open, every time he eats!
You want to say something to him without sounding condescending or motherly, but you know from recent events how easily his feelings get hurt. You have dinner plans this coming weekend with your girlfriends so they can finally meet your new man, but you'd be mortified if he ate like that in front of them, so how would you handle this?
