  • I'm not the type to get hurt over that. Not saying you're wrong...there's no such thing as a wrong feeling.

  • Oh Sweetie I'm sorry. In my situation no it doesn't bother me when he doesn't eat because odds are I am not impressed with what I cooked either (lol Chef I am NOT!). I think he could put it more gentler, but would you prefer for him to pretend that he likes it and you keep cooking the same thing? I would prefer the honesty, gentle honesty that is.

  • I can'tr say that has ever happened here except if he came home feeling sick. You feel how you feel who is to say that is wrong. Have you tried talking to him about it? Maybe he could tell you what about it tasted bad. Too spicey? Too bland? He doesn't like XYZ ingredient. If he could give youi some guidance it might help. you certainly wouldn't cook something he doesn't like on purpose and expect him to eat it.

  • that Im thinking about it my husband did the exact opposite. I didn't find out till we had been married 6 years that he preferred his bacon soft fried. When I found out I was really angry that he hadn't just told me. sheesh, haven't thought about that in years.

  • After 17 years my husband has learned to like it or cook for himself. Let him come home to a bowl of cereal a few nights. Now if I know he doesn't like something like meatloaf I wouldn't fix it or he may say it's to spicey or salty I would prepare a little differently. If he's just rude forget it.

  • I am very overly sensitive.... it would crush me... I'd never wanna cook 4 him again!!!!

    I've made a few flops over the yrs for my DH..... he choked down every bite, no matter how gruesome. I've learned things now, on whether or not to make it again in the future, because he lies and says everything is delicious. If he's hitting the salt, butter, pepper, not having 2nd, etc... I know that recipe can go into the toss pile

  • Ask him what he likes to eat that home cooked. Ask him what his mother cooked that he liked growing up. Or just buy frozen dinners. lol
