Textural aversions

I've never been able to enjoy macaroni and cheese (homemade or box), pasta with cheesy/alfredo sauce, anything that's too creamy (very high fat ice cream, whipped cream, cream cheese) unless it's in very small quantities or spread thinly on something with a rougher texture.
If I make a quesadilla, it either has a very thin layer of cheese, or I let it cool until the cheese is no longer stringy/squishy- same with pizza. I don't like anything with a mucousy texture either (hot and sour soup).
I'm convinced it's a texture thing, since I enjoy the flavors of all but the boxed mac and cheese, and if they're baked to be crispier, especially in the case of homemade macaroni and cheese, I like them fine.
Does anyone else have a similar aversion to an entire texture? Not liking mac and cheese made me an odd kid!
