I met a really guy nice recently. He’s handsome, witty, a wee snarky, intelligent, musically inclined, loves indie movies and he’s a foodie. He’s pretty perfect. I just ended a conversation with him because he said “I don’t like curried goat.” I can’t believe I’ve spent the last 5 weeks talking to this Philistine. 

I feel tricked, used, goatfished and quite frankly, angry. 

How dare he waste my time like this. I know I should pray but I’m just too frustrated to lay this at the altar. Is this how Issac felt when he realized that his Dad was leading him to his death under the guise of wanting to spend quality time? I was thisclose to starting a life with someone who doesn’t appreciate the flavor complexity of goat that has been curried amidst a pool of onions and pimento. 

I’m floored.

NO married man should be eating microwaved meals. I think it’s fair for a woman to provide 6mths of approved meals containing 2 meats and 3 rotating sides. Feeding your husband has been touted as being backwards and archaic but I think it’s great to at least perfect a few meals that your husband loves. Not only will be it great for your budget, eating out costs more, it might be better for your waistline too. I love to eat but I’m not fond of cooking but I’ve tried to make it a habit to cook at least twice a week so I don’t lose my skills. I’ve perfected pasta, vegetarian dishes, Korean, West Indian and Thai food just by searching for recipes and stalking IG pages. With a bit of dedication and practice it’s not hard to add chef to your pre-marital resume.P
