First of all, it screams out, I AM COMPETENT. I AM NOT LAZY. I AM PERFECTLY CAPABLE OF TAKING CARE OF MYSELF. I love that. Probably because I never saw my father cook anything, even a sandwich. He needed a woman to take care of him. Come to think of it, I don't believe he knew how to turn on the dishwasher or the washing machine either. Whenever my Mom wasn't available for household duties, he would call me or my sister. And both my parents worked so it wasn't like Mom sat at home all day. Her work was never done. My father would come home and relax...

I want my SO to want and need me, but for the right reasons. Not because he isn't capable of taking care of himself.
Excellent point. I am able to take care of myself. Yes I can do the chores around the house. I don't need a maid.

Well, a guy who can cook would be attractive to me, because i"m not much of a cook. Ever since I switched from a vegetarian diet to a meat-based diet I've been a bit lost. So I'm up for a guy who enjoys cooking.

I understand that it would be difficult for someone to adjust there diet from vegetarian to meat, but what makes you lost about it?

When I do cook I just look at the cookbooks or look it up online. Then I follow it then later change it to my liking.

I have a few set rules depends on what I am fixing.

It is usually what you don't do to a dish that makes it good.

Girls like it when I make good meals but don't present it really nicely, that comes off as kind of gay and desperate, at least don't do that before you've already had sex. Go to one of your places and have a regular dinner, not like a really romantic atmosphere. Wine is fine but don't be like a sommelier, just pick any wine and put it in a decanter, I usually get the jug because if my date doesn't work out, I can drink it myself or use it for the next date.

yet another example of "don't do anything decent until she puts out."
