(not like I would ever seriously date/marry a chick who didn't like sushi, but I'm just asking hypothetically here) You: "blah blah blah I'm such a stud" Her: "blah blah blah you're hot and I would totally nail you cuz you're so alpha" (intended to imply you're hitting it off well with a chick) You: "So, do you like sushi?" Her: "Eww gross..." Ok, so what was supposed to happen was, her: "Yeah, I love sushi!" You: "Good. There's this awesome sushi restaurant around here. Let's go on Thursday." But instead, she revealed that she has shitty taste in food. Now, until I get to the point where I'm such an alpha stud that I'm fighting women off with a stick and I can reply with "You don't like sushi? Be gone, freak!" how would one salvage this conversation? I assume that "oh, well then you don't want to go to such-and-such place on Thursday" is too beta/nice-guy/ineffective/something. Of course, if you did say that and she followed up with "no, but I'd love to go to blah blah blah place instead," that would be sweet (and she'd probably be desperate or you're just a total stud). But what's the right way to handle something like this when a chick throws a pattern interrupt or whatever into your otherwise perfect plan?
