you and your significant other share the duties? It's just you and him and you fix the salad and he fixes the antre or vice versa. But it is just you and him. Does this happen very often? Do you enjoy it? It has probably been 15 years since I did this with my x-husband and I think I am begining to miss the close procimity of a significant other and all the little fun things we used to do together. He loved to cook and we shared it quite often. In the beginning that is. Is there a certain day of the week or is this ongoing? Is it romantic and fun seeking?

Really never was he in the kitchen when I was. As he didnt cook anything but eggs for his breakfast and this was only when I was working and he wasnt. Anything in the kitchen or grilling out was up to me!

Well I tried to do that Saturday night.. a special dinner that I cooked... well the food was great... just ended up eating alone... after spending almost two hours preparing the meal... It pissed me off that he couldnt get away from his computer for a little bit... considering he was out on the road, he is a truck driver, for 2 months... and my little one was at a slept over for the night... Not sure if that is typical with men, or truck drivers or what not.. but i was soooo much fighting the tears.....

I am so very sorry to hear that. DId you try to intise him at all. I would have put a sexy post-it right infront of him where he would see it. Gurrrr! Men sometimes,huh? Atleast you tried. Not sure if it is typical either. Ruttish is what it sounds like to me. He is either in a rut or some kind of nut! Hope you try something else with him. Maybe he needs a labotomy.

LOL!! Well we have been together for over a year but with his job as being a trucker, and when he was laid off we where living with someone else... So now its just us.. and well being romantic, and doing stuff like that, special things for him.. I am like clueless on how to go about it.. with my ex didn't do anything like that.. and well I would like to change myself a little, by trying to make special times.. do special things that are out of the norm when he comes home.. Want to become more of a doer and less of a waiter.. wait on someone else to make the good time.. taking the lead.. quite nerve racking, and uneasy.. use to just going with the flow; and waiting... Grew up and realized that life's short and its what we make it that counts..

Well, you don't have to do much. Put a short love note somewhere where you are sure he will find it. Or make plans for a romantic dinner when he is home. Something special just for him. Do something or take him somewhere special that you know he will like. Just little things that mean alot and that will give you both memories for years to come.

When me and my b/f first got together I remember us cooking dinner together and having the music turned up loud..lol..He took me in his arms and we danced in the kitchen. I had a lot of fun. I'm not without children very much so I guess our romance comes in spurts. It's very rare the girls are not at home.

Well, I think I would be finding a friend for the girls to be staying with on a week end or two. Maybe even three. Teehee.

My husband and I cook together every night. We just don't believe that cooking is supposed to be a woman's duty, and it doesn't take a special event for my husband to do some of the cooking. For us, it's not necessarily romantic to share the kitchen- it's our way of making a statement that we have equality in our marriage.

Me and My Husbnd, Do sometimes cook together, but it has been awhile, unless you count BBQ, we had a small BBQ today for lunch, he did the Grilling, I did the rest, I do enjoy cooking with my husband, I hated cooking when I was younger , so I did not want to learn then, So when I married my Husband, He got me interesed in cooking and has taught me most of what I know about cooking.. and years later we still enjoy cooking together :)
