I know this probably shouldnt upset me.. But I cant help but to feel hurt.. adult content

Okay, this may sound stupid to some people.. But, I cook nearly everyday for my family (myself, DH & DS) and personally I love cooking, and I think I am good at it, Ive gotten compliments nearly every time I cook for others aside from my family.. But for some reason every time I ask my DH how the food is he just says "Ehh, its okay" Well, I made him something he requested yesterday, and I thought it was very good, took alot of time to make. Took some leftovers to my MILs today and before she got some she said, "It looks good" and my husband goes, "Ehh its okay, definitely not yours" Like he has compared my cooking to hers on multiple occasions. Im only 21 and have been doing the home-made stuff for about a year, and everyone else likes my food.. Well his entire family said it was delicious.. But it just bugs me that no matter what it is I just feel like its not good enough.. Its really starting to hurt my feelings. What to do?

  • From now on when you have sex and he says "wow that was great" just say "eh, it was okay....." See how he likes that. I'll tell you that if my sons ever did that to their wife, I'd be very upset with them. (They are around your age) Give him a little of his own medicine!

  • I guess feed him mac 'n' chz or tuna helper or spaghettios for a week or so, and let him really figure it out.

  • he sounds like a momma's boy (nothing like yours mommy) If my husband did that to me I would make his favorite meal up then make him a bologna sandwich for dinner while I ate the other meal in front of him, tell him since its just ok to him and you LOVE it, its only fair that you get the entire meal and the left overs. Oh and I agree with the other poster, from now on sex is just "eh, ok"

  • ohwrite has made a great point....I would try it a few times and follow it up with "Oh honey it was just a joke."

  • Tell him how you fell, I agree. If you get no reaction, do what I did - I went on strike ! I stopped cooking, unless he was not at home. He didn't like my food, and actually complained about it or would get up from the table and fix a sandwich or microwave something, so I told him, OK, you cook then. He's been cooking now for over 15 years !! He also didn't like what I bought at the grocery store, so now he does that all too. If he likes his own cooking better than yours, let him cook for you - you have enough to do anyway !! Cook when you want to or when he's not home. I know it makes you mad and hurt, but don't let it - it's HIS problem, so turn it around on him !! GL !!
