AD* | Are you one of those indecisive people who can never decide where to eat? Do you forever find yourself torn between sticking to what you know and branching out to try something new? If yes, don't worry - I'm exactly the same! I've put together a handy guide to help you end the indecision once and for all!

Knowing you're hungry but not knowing what you want to eat is one of the worst feelings. Similarly, if you've got a landmark birthday or a big celebration coming up, booking the perfect restaurant or venue is important because you want to make it special - but this all adds extra pressure onto you. Hopefully, the below suggestions will give you a helping hand and ease the indecision!

Take it in Turns to Decide

While this one is only really applicable if you're with other people, it's still a great way to cut down on arguments and speed up the decision-making process. Whether it's a group of friends, your family, or date night, try to be diplomatic and take it in turns to decide where to eat. For instance, one week you could choose the restaurant, the next week they can choose the restaurant. Simple and hassle-free!

Ask for Recommendations

No matter if it's friends, family, colleagues, or your followers on social media, someone you know is bound to have a great suggestion for you to try out! Whether it's a hidden gem, a newly-opened restaurant, or something a little extra special, word-of-mouth recommendations from people you know and trust can be a great way to conquer the indecision and enjoy a delicious meal out in somewhere new.

Let Fate Decide

Still struggling? Take matters out of your hands and let fate decide. If you're stuck between two options, flip a coin. If you've got multiple options, assign each restaurant a number between one and six then roll a dice to determine where you'll be headed. Plus, if fate decides something you're not fussed about, you will then know what you really wanted all along!

Get a Helping Hand with Square Meal

If the above options don't take your fancy, then I might just have the perfect solution for you. Square Meal is a website where you can get practical, unbiased, and independent restaurant recommendations and venue ideas for locations across the UK. Square Meal will do the legwork for you, compiling all the recommendations you need into one central place and giving you the opportunity to earn exclusive reward points when you book through the website. What's more, the site has recently undergone a revamp, helping with the aesthetics and making it much easier to navigate, too!

These are just a few suggestions, but ultimately, the decision-making power really is up to you. Instead of seeing crunch time as something to be dreaded, take the opportunity to either fall back on your favourite comfort food or be brave and try something new. After all, life's too short to spend hours agonising over where to eat!

  1. I'm terrible at deciding. Haven't resorted to flipping to the coin yet, but it is just a matter of time. Great suggestions here. #MMBC

    1. At least flipping a coin makes your mind up for you haha!

  2. My fella and I can never decide where to eat if we're out without the kids.
    We usually end up going to the same place over and over. Ugh. #MMBC

    1. Sounds like it's the perfect opportunity for you to try somewhere new then! Thanks for commenting x

  3. I love trying out new places. We turn to social media for recommendations.
