Salon.com Life | Ball and chain:
So what changed about your relationship after you decided to commit for good?
I pretty much hate the way anyone chews their food. And with Jonathan I just decided: Everyone chews and I've got to live with it.
Had this chewing thing been a deal-breaker in earlier relationships?
I just hate eating noises, and it's always a problem with the person you're dating because you have to eat with them. But if you're in a relationship you want to get out of and you hate the way your partner chews, that's as good a reason as any to get out of it. But not anymore.
