Isn't anyone else single??? - Page 3

post #61 of 74
Go for the cookbook, 84 Rhonda!!! Seriously, it's a great idea; my 27 year old bachelor son is always calling me for ideas when he's having a date over for 'dinner'! I've done some writing/editing, and would be glad to help you out.

84Honda,

I believe that there is a cookbook out for singles. I will see if I can find it. As I recall it wasn't the best, maybe you can really improve on it.
Thanks,

84rhonda, this is going to sound pretty funny, but it's interesting that you're thinking of writing a cookbook for single guys to woo their dates, when just yesterday I came up with an idea about setting up a some lessons to teach single guys how to cook for their dates and keep the food budget low.

Low food budget...what an thought! Pasta and homemade bread! Dunno' anyone who'll turn dwon those two items.

Best and I'm a foodie.   I know very little but the little that I know I want to know very well.

This thread is making me crack up actually. You guys have given me some inspiration to actually pursue this :bounce:. I don't even know how where to start about writing, let alone getting a book published. I don't care if this book is read by know one, I just want to see if I can put something together for the heck of it. I gotta come up with a catchy title.

Hrmm.. this sounds like a fun project afterall. :)

CoolJ, when are you planning on setting up your lessons and whereabouts exactly?

I have a lot of useless male bachelor friends, everytime I drag them into a kitchen store they get all embarassed and stuff. They could use those cooking lessons. I don't know what it is about people in general nowadays. I don't know too many people that actually enjoy cooking. I can talk about it all day long.
:eek: Have we just gotten used to fast foods or have we gotten really lazy? Sorry for wharping the thread..oops :(

Well right now the lessons are just an idea, but if anything comes of it, most likely I'll rent one of the home economy class rooms at my old high school.

I actually just heard my roomate say he was going to make some bacon & cheddar dip for his pork rinds. He's been single for some time. Correlation??? He needs you to write this book!

For comparison you guys should check out a couple of British books, 'Wolf in the Kitchen' by Lindsey Bareham, and 'Dish' - can't remember the author's name but it shouldn't be hard to find.
The first is a cookbook for students and singles who want to eat good, attractive food on a low budget, and the second one as I recall is exactly the kind of thing you're thinking of...cooking for guys.

As if being single isn't hard sometimes....I'm not single, but sometimes I feel like we are, since we don't have children. That's the next topic in life. Once you get married you discover that's the way that couples meet and mingle with each other. Seems most good parents evolve their off time around their children.

Being female it's like the only casual conversation women ever have and they always assume everyone else has children to. If you have more than one cat (which many single or childless couples do because of how carefree they are) you have to keep that a secret because then they think your "one of those, psychos cat people". Am I wrong?



Actually, I think it's impressive to have any man cook on a date. I think that's something that I found really attractive about my spouse (don't you guys find people are shy to cook for a "chef"?). It's a more real interaction then sitting in a formal restaurant. I'd have been and still would be delighted with any date if he served me pork rinds and cheese dip so long as he made the effort to serve me some diet soda to wash it down with.;)

I'm a (male) cat person and not psycho. Yet, I do find that others apologize to me for their food preparation. I don't know why, either.

Goodness, don't you guys know how to play that game? You walk into the house, the host apologizes for the mess and you say... ????? That's right, you say "Oh no! Your house is always SOOOOOOOO clean!"

And when someone apologizes about the food you say... "Oh no! That's the best __________ I've ever had!" BUT, you HAVE to say, of course, no one makes it like my mother, but that's my mother :)

You know honestly I haven't had more then one or two bad meals at someone elses house. It's amazing how NOT picky a picky person can be when someone is kind enough to cook for me Then if they do dishes and tell me not to get up, I think I'm at the spa...that's the ulitmate luxury.

My poor (soon to be, at the time) sister in law was in a panic (so I learned) the first time she had me over for dinner. But I did a FABULOUS job breaking the ice....when I cut into my pork chop something happened (I dorked out) and the whole chop flew off my plate onto the floor. Yep, she hasn't worried about cooking for classy ole me ever again.

Wendy, my husband and I usually hang out with single friends since our married friends all have kids and are dashing to soccer practice or dance class. We've celebrating year 6 soon and don't plan to have kids ---and people can't believe it or think we're crazy that we don't want lil' critters...
post #74 of 74
As someone who has lil critters, I usually tell my single friends who want kids (cause theyre so cute) "Ill let you borrow mine sometime so it will cure you". I dream of days without potty training and puddles on the floor. And dry beds...oh luxury
