There are so many things to worry about on a first date. Will he show up? What should I wear? What do I eat?? It’s exhausting. To make things easier on you, we found out the one food you should never order on a first date.

According to international etiquette expert Jacqueline Whitmore, anything with red sauce is a no-go. She names a few other foods to avoid, but this one seems to pop up on just about every other list of what not to order on a first date–and with good reason.

Red sauce is messy. It can wind up all over your mouth, on your clothes, pretty much anywhere if you’re not 110% careful. As if the stress of a first date wasn’t enough, spare yourself any extra trouble by not ordering a dish with red sauce. Now you have one less, one less problem.
