In re: cooking for a man I do agree that many men are very accomplished cooks. However, in my opinion, those who have lost a wife might really miss having a meal prepared for them. Perhaps their repetroire of what to cook is limited & they might appreciate a meal cooked by someone who is showing their care, kindness & maybe even their willingness to move to the next level. And, oh yes, it is SO nice to share the prep work, to work side by side in the kitchen!
Carol, it's also not near as much fun to eat alone, so having someone to share a meal with is nice. I like to think I can cook, no one has ever or after a meal I've cooked, but I find it boring to cook for myself, and tend to get into a rut. When I was cooking for 2 it tended to be enjoyable, in part because I always got a "thanks dear" at the end of the meal.
Of course my "little man" thinks I should be cooking for 2, but he's short on words and just sits and begs for food instead of saying "thanks 'daddy'". Shesh some puppies!
I don't disagree that competition is good, but if you make it too much of a competition, or too much of a challange some guys are going to assume you're not interested and will quickly loose interest.
The puppy dog guys will sit and beg hoping you'll throw them a bone , but there are others that are going to lose interest and look for somewhere else to 'play'.
In highschool, when I wanted a boyfriend I got out of the friendzone with flirting, initially, and then just being blunt about it if he didn't purse it further. It worked out for me most of the time. The times it didn't, I still remained friends with the guys and it wasn't a big deal. When you act like it is a big deal, or you have made the friend into an idol, then it becomes problematic if they don't feel the same way.
Anyhow, it has always worked for severely introverted me. Good luck to you!
Is the way to a man's heart really through his stomach? I find that hard to swallow A guy I know said the very same thing to me today. Is his stomach simply a way to lure him, or to keep him, or both? In many of the couples I know, the men are the more accomplished cooks. I would guess that being kind and faithful would be the more long-term qualities a man might cherish. Of course, being kind does include sharing the cooking, etc. Just wondering...
