Spring is the season for new beginnings and budding romances. There are couples canoodling as they dine alfresco outside restaurants everywhere. You can practically smell the sizzling steaks as you stroll down the street. And you can't walk in the park without stumbling on a romantic picnic.

Spring is all about dining in the great outdoors. It's about love and it's about barbecue sauce.

As someone who has dated any number of men who make Al Bundy look like Mario Batali, I should know. My dyspeptic dating disasters inspired me to conduct a study of the male species via their stomachs. I interviewed more than 200 men and women about the connection between a man's wining and dining style and his mating style. I discovered you can divine a man's essence from his culinary style.

Read the rest of "Pick a man by his winning culinary style" on CNN Living.

    It's a nice rule-of-thumb, but it's by no means fool proof. Chances are if he's polite and mannerly when he's eating, he'll treat a lady like a lady in a relationship. Respect for self – respect for others.

    This seems pretty shallow, to base someone's worth as a mate on whether or not he brings champagne on a picnic instead of beer.

        I sure hope. I'd hate to think that if I didn't prefer to grill every meal, I'd be considered a lazy slob.
