chaircover: This sounds rather strange, that none of the girls that you go out with can cook.

All said and done; If you do find a lady that you like but her only negative is that she cant cook, but as you say, you can cook and if she is a lady ready to learn, then why dont you consider teaching her rather than trowing away an otherwise good relationship

Dont also forget that some people are better at cooking certain foods than others. For example my fried rice is super and people eat my fried rice and tell me to go and become a caterer, I laugh because up until now I avoid cooking ogbonna because I dont feel that confident cooking it. growing up we never cooked it and it was my husband who taught me how to cook it.

also food can taste different to different people. I sometimes come across it at parties, where I may say a dish tastes nice and my husband may say it tastes horrible.

In short, look at the bigger picture. There is much more to a good woman than just cooking. Yes its important to be homely, but dont let the cooking alone cloud everything.

You are probably better off getting that maid, if you want to have good meals every day and Even if you get a girl friend who can cook, surely you cant expect her to sit in your house and cook for you everyday. She is not your wife & she will also have a life of her own.
@chaircover &efemena
Thank you both.
Yes,i know there's more to a woman and i appreciate it,but then i think asking for a gnod cook as a criterion in your would-be wife is not too much to ask.
It's not as if i'm too demanding,afterall i would only end up eating at home once in a day which is at night when i come back home and i want that one meal to be good.
I'm not looking for a housewife,i just want someone that can balance her home-duties with her work.
My mum was never a housewife but she was able to prepare good meals for her household regurlarly.
And yes,i've told 2 different ladies to go to cooking school,but they got very angry and since then i've stopped telling them.

2legit2qwt: You're fed up?? Are you a toddler? You sound like it's the sole responsibility of the woman to do the cooking like she's your maid.

If she ca't cook and you can, get in the kitchen man and do the cooking and stop whining and expecting the woman to be your nanny angry angry

I don't have any problem cooking myself,unfortunately i don't have time.

solomon111: I don't have any problem cooking myself,unfortunately i don't have time.
Good advice from chaircover.
If time is the problem bro, go eat at restaurants or better do like me and make your food for the week on weekends and refrigerate. That's what i do and i'm a full time worker plus i have quite a few things i do on the side but i don't think it'd bother me as much if my girl doesn't know how to cook. If it bothers you as much, take chaircover's advice and move the girl along in your direction. Personally, i'd not use the lack of culinary skills of my girlfriend as a yardstick for anything, as long as i can cook my food.

Which soup is ogbonna soup again?i thought Ogbonna is a name.
Re: I'm Fed Up!! by ladygogo: 4:40pm On Nov 27, 2013
If food is very important to you, cook for the week on weekends, keep in the fridge/freezer and heat up in the microwave whenever you are hungry. Life is good.

ileoba has been tamed - she's now a very docile wife. she gave her life to Christ. no more juju stuff, just her bible & the sweet songs of solomon.

solomon111: I'm a chemical engineer,based in PH and i have a serious issue troubling me.
I don't want to sound conceited but the ladies i've dated can't cook and it's giving me serious cause for concern.
I'm a good cook myself,but unfortunately i don't have time as my job is so strenous that it sometimes requires me to shuttle between 3 states everyday and i get home too tired to even take off my clothes, let alone cook.
I had to break up with the last woman in my life due to this same issue.
She asked me to give her N50,000 to stuff my kitchen which i did and that was after bragging to me how good a cook she was.
Unfortunately,i was repeatedly disappointed by the poor meals she prepares and i had to call it quit.
I've dated quite a few other ladies before her,yet they were all the same and a number of them have actually landed me at my company hospital due to runny stomach.
The few times i get to travel to see my mother,i end up taking away much food which has led to her asking me questions about the the women in my life.
Infact,i reduced the frequency of my visits to avoid those questions she asks me.
Nowadays,i come back home from work late and very tired and i just go straight to bed hungry despite having a significantly- stuffed kitchen.
I'm frustrated and i'm thinking of asking my mum to get me a good,educated wife that can cook.
I'm not one to delegate such sensitive matters to parents,but then it seems i've no choice.
I've been advised to get a maid,but the thing is i just don't trust them with my food and i don't want to put myself in compromising situations that may dent my reputation.
I want to know if there're people who have been in the same situation with me and how they solved it.

grin grin

Make I laugh first !

Touche!. Why should your girlfriend be cooking for you in the first place.? The OP needs to have no expectations in that regard. Cooking for him should be of her own volition. i.e if she wants to.

I remember when my friend and I went to her bf house, she was supposed to travel but didn't, we now decided to stop her then bf house to eat something.

Getting there, she tried to open the door with her keys but the door was opened already. We entered and behold we saw a lady wearing bum short.........

Boyfriends shouldnt expect their girlfriends to cook for them. The girls should only cook if they want to.(thats if she knows how to cook anyway). Besides, food isnt meant to be cooked in exchange for christmas and Easter gifts. If he is hungry we can go to the nearest fast food joint or mamaput.

well deserved.....
if a woman cannot take care of her man, she deserves whatever she gets. even if a child is not well looked after, very soon he would start stealing or begging neighbours for food. if your friend cannot cook, there are millions of chics out there that would do the cooking in their bum-shorts. cheesy

i expect my girlfriend to care for me. if i am hungry & she can cook very well, then i expect her to cook. relationship is about give & take, caring for each other, etc. if i dunno how good a cook a girl is, how am i supposed to commit the rest of my life to her?

Wow. These are girls you are dating. Please get real. I wish you said she had no goals and was constantly asking for money. Some character trait that just showed her to be a bad person. To say you break up with these girls because they cannot cook is actually a blessing in disguise for them.

you can cook up a storm, clean better than mr clean, have sex like porn stars and still get cheated on. The amazing part is being cheated on with someone that isnt as domesticated as the previous chic. So many real life examples abound.

Gluttony?
Are you kidding me?
Do you really know the meaning of gluttony?
So demanding that the only food i get to eat that day at home after a hard day's job is good makes me gluttonous?
It seems you don't realize that it's the ladies that actually consume most of the food and even my money.
I hardly spend on my self nowadays.
