What do you do when your dining companion eats at a different pace from you?
If you're eating with someone who is a fast eater, do you find yourself eating quicker to keep pace so that there isn't that awkward moment when you're still chomping away on your sandwich and your companion is sitting there counting the ratio of Splenda packets to regular sugar packets?
What about when someone eats slower than you? Do you chew extra long and take slow long sips of water to pace yourself?
How do you cope?
(Not trying to make judgments about whether eating slow or fast is better or more healthy -- just trying to figure out if there are coping mechanisms to synchornize eating speeds.)
