Neither of my parents can cook (they put everything into the microwave including expensive meat they get at the beef mart oTL ) so I never learned how. They kept bothering me to teach me when I was a teenager, but I'd think about what they do (or the lack thereof) and would just keep saying no.

I picked up a couple things when I was dating this one guy that worked at 4 and 5 star restaurants up in the big city near where I live. So I can make some stuff now, but it's not much. I think I'd rather keep it this way - learning if someone that can actually cook will teach me, but not besides that since I don't trust myself much.

Honestly though, if cooking or the lack of being able to cook would determine a relationship, that's not a healthy relationship. It's silly just thinking about it.

I'm pretty good at making simple things, and I've learned to make a few complex dishes, but I wouldn't say that I can cook. Then again, everyone seems to like what I make, so maybe I can.

Yep, plenty.
Any human being should know how to cook at least a little bit. If you can't at least scramble some eggs or make a burger past age 15 (I learned to cook at around 8-9), male or female, you're pretty much a fail human unless you have no arms/a disease of some kind preventing you from doing so.

Well, I was told something similar...but it wasn't phrased quite so harshly. I was just told it was an essential survival skill.

Doesn't matter. I'll cook for her, and she'll hug me from behind and distract me from cooking like the lecher she should be.

Most girls I've dated don't have a clue how to cook. It's actually a good thing since I'm an above average cook myself which can be a good thing to bring into a relationship. I worked graveyard shift and my ex-fiancee worked mornings/afternoons so she'd be happy to come home to a fresh cooked meal and dinner together after a tough day at work. It was just another way I could show her how much I appreciated who she was.

I think everyone should know how to cook at least basic stuff. Like eggs properly sunny side up, scrambled, or over easy. Steak and fried rice are pretty easy too. A simple chicken noodle soup in the slow cooker maybe. Perhaps even just using a prepackaged stew mix to make dinner. After learning the basics, everything becomes much easier and feels more natural.

Breaking up with someone since they can't cook seems kind of silly. They can always learn and even the best cooks are always learning.

I'm one. I tried, but I just can't. I can bake pre-made stuff and microwave stuff. That's it. I want to find a guy that cooks somewhat better than me, because I don't want to eat out all the time lol

I can Cook QUITE proficiently. So if I was the settle down with a Lady who wasn't up to par, or by Her OWN skills, felt inadequate...I would Cook the Meals for the both of Us, as to Her desire. T'wouldn't be a matter of any fuss at all.

Have you met one?
Yes, i have met a couple that can't cook.

Does it matter?
Not really. People can learn how to cook, just takes time and patience.

Does it impact a relationship when you find out?
Nope.

Does she make the honest effort to try and learn?
Some have, others not so much.
