People who aren't willing to eat certain things pretty strictly: do you ever break that rule only to be polite? :)

No real strict. I won't eat certain things because I don't particularly like them.

But when someone I meet cooks for me, I'll eat it so long as i'm not allergic. Even if I don't care for it because they cooked for me.

I really dislike ham and chocolate.

I am always afraid someone will think I'm rude, and usually tell someone before I go over at least about chocolate. I can eat ham to be polite, chocolate is another story. . .

On occasion, yes. And I'll try anything at least once, even if looking at it makes my stomach curdle.

It depends. I'm vegetarian, so I won't eat meat in any circumstances (though I will be polite when I turn it down). But I also don't like broccoli and I have been known to eat broccoli-based dishes just because I didn't want to offend whoever made them.

No I don't I have a bad thing when it comes too food. I always end up getting sick. So I stick too things I make or certain people make.

I stick to my diet most of the time, but I will eat off diet foods when I attend gatherings like weddings, graduations, holidays, parties and of course when I go to moms. I just feel like I'm insulting the hosts if I don't eat.

No, I do not eat things to be polite. I was raised to eat things out of politeness and it has given me such a fear of food that it makes eating out practically impossible these days. You know, the usual bullshit - sit there until your plate is clean, don't take more than you can eat immediately followed by "you can eat more than THAT"...I just never had great dining experiences as a child and it's carried over. So, now? I eat what I want, when I want and I pretend like people don't think I'm a child for it.

Nope. Some things I don't eat and I can still be incredibly polite. I simply say "no thank you", or "could I please have a double helping of ....whatever, instead". Only once, when someone "INSISTED" I taste their special dish, did I take them aside, and say "oh, dear, your dish smells positively heavenly, but I have to tell you, I am allergic to that food (a tiny white lie), and she said "OH, I so understand", and that was that. In fact, I wrote her a NICE thank you note for the wonderful meal that evening and I have been invited back to EVERY party she has (she has LOTS), and so I KNOW she was not insulted. In fact, never has she served that specific dish, or at least without an alternative, at any party I have been to at her place. You can hold to your limits and still be VERY kind and VERY polite.

I'm vegetarian and that doesn't change based on where I am. I'll just not eat if there aren't options available.
