Next time you have a date, you may want skip the spaghetti.

On Wednesday night’s episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” actress Dakota Fanning explained to Fallon the rules of ordering a meal when you are on a date.

You know, cute foods. Foods you can eat without making a huge mess.

“Eating in front of somebody is kind of personal. You don’t really know this person so then you have to decide what to order that’s easy to eat and talk and not messy,” she said. “Not a gross food.”

Fallon joked about the girls who just order broth on dates.

“Well, you can’t do that either,” Fanning said.

“So, if you had something like this, then it would be a nightmare,” Fallon asked as he presented the actress with a giant bowl of spaghetti and meatballs.

Then, Fanning and Fallon dug in — and it was messy!

Looks like penne pasta is the way to go.
