Ladies, It's Important To Let Your Man Pick The Restaurant

... and it should go something like this.
Wife: "Let's go out to eat tonight."

Me: "Great, let's do it!"

Wife: "You pick this time. What sounds good to you?"

Me: "How about Japanese?"

Wife: "No"

Me: "Southern?" 
Wife: "No."

Me: "BBQ?"

Wife: "No."

Me: "Indian?"

Wife: "No."

Me: "Korean?"

Wife: "No."

Me: "Steak?"

Wife: "No."

Me: "Cajun?"

Wife: "No."

Me: "Brew pub?"

Wife: "No."

Me: "Chinese?"

Wife: "No."

Me: "How about Italian?"

Wife: "But you hate Italian."

Me: "Yes, but I know it's something you like and at this point, I'm more worried about starving to death."

Wife: "OK, Italian it is!"

Me, under my breath: "Well, at least I got to pick. (Sigh)"
And that, my fairer readers, is how it's done. ;-)

My parents have been saying for years that there should be a restaurant called I Don't Know.
Dad: Where do you want to eat?
Mom: I don't know.
Dad: okay!

We ended up at a Korean place last night because everything else was closed or unsatisfactory. The Korean was a real stretch for her.

She liked it!

Add another cuisine to the list!

In all fairness, she will do Cajun, BBQ, Chinese and brew pubs. I was just having a bit of fun with it.

The key to navigating (*) these straights, betwixt Scylla and Charybdis, is to understand that almost every woman wants her man to --
1) lead her;
2) lead her where she has already decided that she wants to go;
3) know where she has already decided that she wants to go without her *ever* needing to tell him, even if he asks directly.

The reason for these conflicting and mutually exclusive desires is that by agreeing to thr "deal", it becomes *his* responsibility if it doesn't make her happy.

(*) I didn't say 'successfully navigating"
