I went with "maybe" because it is not clear how passionate you are with cooking. You say you love it, so does that mean you spend hours in the kitchen preparing wonderful meals etc? If that is the case then one has to try and find a balance of some sort. For the average person spending hours and hours in the kitchen wouldn't be normal either. I agree however that if he wants to eat, he has to help.
Mine is a "no" because i am so spoiled and i'm already so used to my boyfriend cooking for me and with me. I just wouldn't want to set myself back by being with someone who didn't know how to cook or help around in the kitchen, you know? + when my boyfriend and I do it together it's a bonding experience with both enjoy. I would want to be able to bond like that with somebody else AND it's healthier to eat homemade food then to always eat out and if he doesn't cook and I don't feel like cooking that means we better be close to his mother because she might have to be over all the time to drop off food, which I assume can be a bit annoying.
Does she have to be a great cook, no? She has to know how to cook some things though.
I do most of the cooking in my relationship because it's a hobby of mine that I enjoy but when I'm not feeling like cooking sometimes, my woman picks up the slack and cooks something simple for us. We also like to cook something really delicious together on the weekends once in a while. Something that's fun and a team effort. She's great at baking and making desserts too.
I'm not eating out food and TV dinners all the time or feeding my future children nothing but McDonalds so I would of never considered anything serious with her if she couldn't cook.
Yes I would. I'm not all that good of a cook myself so even if she wasn't good at it, that would just mean we could learn together. Which would be even better than her doing it all by herself. The more common experience the better.
Yes, I would date someone who doesn't know how to cook. If anything, I could teach her how. That way, if something happens down the road and I can't cook anymore, then she can still cook for the both of us (and our family).
With all of the Guys I have Dated and Mated, it Didn't, still Doesn't Matter... Who does the Cooking or if they Can lift a Pan. I used to be the Chef of the Century but now, it's an Effort to Boil water. We can Either go out to Eat as a treat or just Eat in. Like a Bike, you never Forget how to Ride nor Slide... In those biscuits. Good luck and Great question. xx
My boyfriend doesn't cook. He broke the kettle once by trying to boil an egg in it. He refuses to even do baked beans for himself. It's fine though because in my family has always cooked so I love doing it it, and I love looking after him so I think it's quite sweet that he doesn't. I like it.
I already did and I'd do it again as long as he had some redeeming qualities.
This dude cannot cook. He eats like... the same 5 things over and over again. His idea of cooking is a whole pound of ground beef on top of broccoli and cauliflower, a whole bag worth, then topped with half a jar of sauerkraut, topped with a ton of hot sauce, pepper, salt, and spices. And that was just one meal. And to this day, he swears he can cook better than me.
