Picky Eaters

Is it possible that there’s a correlation between being a picky eater and being a confirmed bachelor? It has recently occurred to me that all the truly picky eaters that I know (I’m referring to men only here), are either long-term bachelors, or guys who resisted marriage for as long as they possibly could.

And if there’s a correlation, would it also be true that there’s a causal effect? That the carefulness and sensitivity associated with picky eating extends to their relationships with women?

Your opinion would be welcome.

Ooh, can we name names here and gossip about Luke? We all know he eats about 5 foods...
I don't think it's that that means these guys are "picky" about women, but that they probably have control issues and many rules about women and relationships, just as they do about food, which quickly or eventually bump up against real life and/or real women.
I like men with a good appetite.

We'll have to let Luke weigh in here. As soon as the Sabbath is over.

Guilty as charged. I think this is an excellent point.

I think this idea is bunk. If Luke had not contracted CFS, if he had finished his education as he was meant to and earned his Phd at the London School of Economics, he would have long since married and we would know him for other things. (And being a convert Jew or a picky eater would not be included among them.) He is single because he is poor, without a means of supporting a wife and family, and not because of whatever makes him a picky eater.
