    Only if he already prefers the company of food over women.

    I don't think there is any truth to this because when I first met my husband I hated to cook and was barely cooking a variety of foods once we married, and he didn't marry me for my cooking. I think it was something that back in the day could of been true, but in the modern day of today where many dads are stay at home dads I think it's false.

    No. If a man is not attracted to a woman he's not likely to ask her out let alone value her cooking enough to become emotionally invested.
    People have always speculated on ways to get someone to fall in love, propose marriage, or accept a marriage proposal. Their goal is to manipulate them in some (subliminal way) much like the Leonardo DiCaprio movie "Inception" where an idea is planted in one's mind in such a way that they (believe) they originated it.
    There are tons of books and articles titled such as "How to Get a Man to Marry you", "Ten Ways to Make Any Man Fall in Love With You", "How to Get Women to Throw Themselves at You", "Pheromone Sprays that Attract Men/Women", along with various magic spells/chants, "Secret Weapons of Love that Never Fail" and the world famous "Engagement Chicken Dinner Recipe"
    The best advice is and always has been "be yourself". Ultimately everyone wants to be loved and accepted for who (they) are.
    There are no "gender shortcuts". One man may place a high value on a woman's ability to cook and another man may value sexual compatibility, while yet another man seeks a woman who reminds him of his mother or someone who is the complete opposite of his mother. Knowing the (individual) is the key!
    The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things that you want for the relationship, naturally agrees with you on how to obtain those things and last but not least there is a (mutual) depth of love and desire for one another.

    The way to a man's heart is through his ****, & before you say anything i mean't his mind!lol..If you want your man to be happy you have to let him do what he wants to do, & when ever he wants to do it..At the same time you do the same then see how many days/nights you spend together, when you "both" could be doing anything else you wanted to..If you then spend more time together than apart, you know you have his true heart & are not having to trick him..

    Yes ... If his eyes are on you while your whisking, mixing and baking. While it doesn't hurt to have this marvelous skill (which I completely lack), men are first attracted with their eyes. Research shows they spend the next stage justifying their eyes:) If they find you attractive, they will look for positives and backburner the negatives.

    Essentially, chemistry (alas) is what attracts at least initially. A good long-term relationship, however, demands much more: trust, compatibility, affection, caring, and a "good fit."

    One of the problems many couples have is either jumping into the attraction too quickly or committing to "resume-date" (he/she has all the right stuff, but the in-betweens -- the feelings-- aren't there).

    Time with each other, facing challenges together, and removing those stars from your eyes is the true test.

      I love the term "resume-date". I believe women are more guilty of this then men. They often tell me about their (shopping list). I ask them, If you were "him" would you want you? "Don't expect to sit next to the moon unless (you) are a star!"
