This past Thanksgiving in 2020 we randomly chose to hang out. I am referring to me and my best friend of 12 years. I asked her out in college and she said no.
She cooked a full meal for me. It was salmon with some rice. Very good. It was not a big deal. Not very different from us just sharing drinks as best friends and me spending the night on her couch. This time she asked me to sleep in bed with her. No sex. So I did. 2 weeks later she calls me up and asked me out on a date.
Another experience I had was recently meeting a girl online. We met in person for drinks and by the end of the night on that first date we had sex. Very sensual. She wasn't used to that because she was used to hookup guys who would just plow threw her. T
The next day I wake up after we were cuddling and she starts trying to make me breakfast. She wasn't a very good cook. These days we are still dating. She keeps cooking for me. She keeps sending me home with food that she's made. Her cooking has improved. It's been over a month. She's been referencing marriage. Calling me "Baby". Using phrases like "I really like you..."
I think about the 30 women I have dated and there is a clear pattern here. It doesn't matter if she is a fuck buddy, friends with benefits, First date or dating for 2 years.
If someone is cooking for you? They are falling in love with you. They may not even realize it. But they are.
