    Does a man who cooks make any difference in the way you perceive him?
    Does this make your attraction stronger for him?
    Do you think "it is about time he helps out?"
    Do you see this as an invasion into a woman's area of expertise?

    OR

    Do you think "a man who cooks is sexy."
    Do you think "A man who cooks, I will bring the dessert."

    I have read several articles about men who cook from women writers. Seems that these women writers believe it makes men sexier to the females.
    What is your thoughts on this?

    SHould we men be in the kitchen more often?

      I like to cook, I enjoy experimentating and being creative, and at home, it is fun. My wife Lanna loves it, she says she enjoys it when I do it. I even clean the house...the way i see it...

      I live here we are a team, and I did not marry my mother! so why would I not do it. The faster we get done cleaning, the faster we can get out of ths house and gone doing things we like togeather and having fun. It works.

      She loves the special meals for two, and we spoil each other. So Why not.

      I think men who cook are as sexy as women who cook. I love it when men do the dishes -- if they do them right (use dish soap, hot water, etc.)
         I love a good meal, prepared by someone who obviously likes to cook, and who doesn't make a big, big mess in the kitchen and then expect me to clean it up.

          The sexiest thing, is when my husband and I share the cooking, and spend some time making our meal together, then enjoy a class of wine while we dine.

    My husband cooks and I love it, it certainly gives me a break but of course I also help with other things. It is sexy when a man can do other things besides take of there shoes throw them on the floor and plop down in a big chair. I love the help but of course it is just my own personal opinion. smile

    Men can cook, just getting some men into the kitchen is a chore. lol 
    I am thinking about writing a hub about this subject. I have already started a Blog, but may end up writing a hub also. Your input will help me gather more information from the female perspective.
    I enjoy cooking myself.

    Ahhh, a man that can cook is sexy, and a man that can cook well is even better! A man that prepares a romantic meal for a woman shines with masculinity.As a woman, I say-"medium well please!!!"

    I don't really care one way or the other, but I'm not a big fan of cooking (whether it's me doing it or someone else).  I don't find food interesting, so I'm not all that impressed by someone who does.  To me, spending a lot of time on something that gets eaten in five minutes is kind of a waste of time.  lol  I'd be more interested in a guy who knew the good restaurants, including those that deliver.  Besides, if I cook I clean as I go along, so my cooking doesn't leave the kitchen a big mess.  Other people seem to have a way of messing up every square inch of the kitchen when they cook - and, to me, making a big mess in the kitchen makes cooking even less appealing.

    men who really take time to cook are very sexy! big_smile
    it says a lot about a man when he can make his way around the kitchen.

    I would much rather date a man who knows how to cook rather than one who just kind of slops around the kitchen. smile

    I'm really hoping to marry a man that can cook, because I can't!  I count it as a blessing because I think cooking is an important skill to have in life.  And yes, I think a man that can cook is VERY sexy.

    Thanks to everyone for the replies here.
    Like Ralwus...I also clean my own dishes...and that includes pots and pans.
    And I will add that when I am cooking...I do like the kitchen to myself. lol At least when preparing food that is.

    When it comes to cooking in our house, my spouse rules. I have a fork in one hand and a white flag in the other.

    He makes the absolute best stuffing ever. I am a stuffing slut. I admit it.

      Very good! Back in the day...one of the requirements a man looked for was a woman who could cook. Times have definatley changed. Now alot of men share the cooking and few cases men are the primary cooks. I do find a person male or female (female for me) who is self-sufficient a well rounded person and more attractive.

    A man that can cook is not necessarily sexier, but is still a wonderful trait.  Everyone needs a break once in a while and when you think of all that women generally already do (cooking, taking care of kids, running errands, and cleaning), then getting some help once in a while is very much appreciated.

    I was married for 24 years and learned to cook because I wanted something nice to eat, after marriage. I don't know that I'm a good or great cook, but I'm so glad that I can cook for a houseful at Thanksgiving or other holidays, and it's fun. I usually make it a group effort and enjoy the whole process. I refuse to be a slave in cooking or cleaning up.

    The women who join us have as much fun as I do, and all in all, I think they enjoy the process with me, but we've never really talked specifically about it. I rarely cook for one or two, although that does happen sometimes.

    I never wanted to cook, but now that I'm doing it, it's fine. Glad to have the skill.
