Do you know anyone who admits they don't cook?

I have been hearing people lately say "they don't cook" and have personally never known anyone who doesn't. Who cooks for them? Does their SO/DH do their cooking or do they eat out or do they have a chef? Anyone know?
By the way, I love to cook and bake. It is my favorite thing to do (stress reliever for me).

  • I honestly didn't cook until I left my husband. I have almost always had someone around to cook for me, either a boyfriend, a roommate or my parents. I hate cooking. I ate out a lot. The only thing I knew how to cook for years was pasta. I am slowly learning different foods now and I still hate it.

  • My sister and best friend don't cook. I mean they can fry an egg and won't starve, but each of their husbands do all the cooking or they eat out.

  • I have a friend who readily admits she doesn't cook. Maybe like once a month. Either her husband does it, on rare occasions, or they just eat out. They're improving now that he's not working at the Carl's Jr,w hich used to be the biggest reason they didn't cook. She'd go meet him for is meal break and eat with him there so they generally just ateo ut.

  • I can't imagine not cooking. Hubby would if I didn't I'm sure, but I think it's part of my job. Besides, I really do enjoy it.

  • My dh cooks probably just as much I do. One day/week eat out.

  • I abhor cooking. Take out, husband throws stuff together, grills, whatever. My family and friends all know. It's no secret.

  • I've known only a few; most of the people I know cook something or another.
