    Sisters! Would you ever marry or date a man that couldn't cook? What if the man in your life couldn't cook, what would you do? Would you get tired of cooking all the time or eating out?

    And when I write "cook", sisters I don't mean only in the kitchen so feel free to broaden your scope and thoughts on the question. :D

    Peace,
    Queenie .... :angel1:

    LOL! Sister Queenie

    I hear ya!

    If I date a man who can't cook all havoc would break out, because sister, Sometimes I just don't have the patience or the desire to be standing over a hot stove after working all day.

    If he's knows how to eat, he better know how to cook sumpt'em! If brother got it going on upstairs and respect the fact that just because I am a women does'nt mean that cooking is my obligatation. I would teach him how to cook any way he wants! hehehe! But if brother ain't bringin understanding and mental support to the table,
    All Classes Will Be Close Until Further Notice!:book:

    Queen...That's how I was won over. They say the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Well that's the route my husband took, among other things. He was looking for a wife, while I was looking for nothing but a good time. He changed all dat though. And to this day...he does most of the cooking. He enjoys it...why mess up a good thing? :wink:

    Well, quite naturally you want him as perfect as possible in all areas particularly, intellect, spirituality, yada yada yada…but when it comes to cooking… :coffee:

    I love a man that can put it down in the kitchen…I love to sit and watch and then have him serve me. I may seem a little warped but I think it’s the sexiest thing and I prefer that he wear a sleeveless shirt to showcase his arms (if they’re muscular)…*whew, fanning myself at the thought* :spin: Put some music on…and just sit back and wait for a masterpiece to be presented… “it will tantalize every sense, humanly possible” depending on the man… :angel1:

    Because if he’s pulling something frozen out of a box… :nono: well, let’s just say that’s not cooking in my opinion and my senses will be as cold as the meal 20 min after it’s taken from the oven.

    However, In my personal experience, I’ve found that if a man can cook, he has patience and is very good with his hands which means he can “COOK” in many, many other areas. :smokin: Just thought I’d throw that in, since you said it wasn’t limited to the kitchen * clearing my throat *


    Oops...I didn't answer the question...No, I wouldn't base a relationship on whether he could cook or not...I'm a great cook and I love cooking so that would never be an issue for me. There are too many other important issues that I'd have to look at, the list is a bit "comprehensive" and cooking is not on it. :)

    Would I marry a man that couldn't cook? ...that depends, if he's the man I intend to spend the rest of my life with, yes I would marry him and teach him how to cook ...quite well. I got lucky, my husband cooks circles around me he's a chef, along with many other things.

    I'm loving this SAGE!!

    And I agree with you wholeheartedly, you definitely can't base the relationship on cooking.
