Sounds like me alright. Don't like the name, though- too pretentious. How 'bout epicurian?
Too many syllables. I'll accept "foodie."

Try saying epicurian with food in your mouth! Okay then, I'm onboard with Foodie, despite it's sounding similar to Yuppie.

I think that's a freakin' joke.
I agree with your friends.

A foodie = appreciates good food that's well-prepared with good ingredients.
A cook = likes to make food
A foodie + cook = someone who likes to make good food and cares about the how and what's in it.

Not all cooks are foodies, and not all foodies are cooks. Someone can be a "cook" and love to make hamburger helper or duncan hines cakes.

OK! I'm a foodie, a cook and a grill master, but I don't bake!

But I'm nothing close to being a yuppie.

if a man offer to cook a woman dinner, he's going to be expecting something in return. he isn't going to cook for 'free,' hopefully some women know that already. there's always a catch.

Negative. Done this many times before on dates and all I wanted was her company.

Whatever. I'm sure you have. Most of the other ones want something in return. Been in too many situations where you think they're doing something 'just because' and then they expect a handout of some sort, thinking you 'knew' that was the process. Main reason I do not take things from men unnecessarily (not that they give me anything anyways). LOL.

ROFL!!!!!

What? If I guy cooks for you he probably wants sex? Good chance, with some exceptions.

If a guy cooks for you he expects sex in return? Not a reasonable man.

BTW, do have some kind of chart?

Hot dog = french kiss
Lobster = blow job


How exactly does this work?


Back on topic: I'm a foodie + cook

I HATE baking
