Passable isn't impressive, but if someone is a It's mainly men that I hear say that. Like I say I'm not hiring a chef so I don't have to have them cooking for me. I have actually dated someone who 'couldn't cook' as seemed scared to try like he somehow saw it as some mystical challenge. 3- I enjoy doing fun things ( amusement parks, trips, movies,etc).Moderators are present here to ensure that members treat each other with dignity and respect. Saying how they're a 'good cook' (not just wanting a partner who is). 4- I am complimentary ( Your perfume smells great or you are very attractive ).5- I am a good conversationalist and enjoy talking about an array of topics.6- I have charisma .7- I am above average in looks.Doing the math in my head that meant he had to be at least 40. Most of the time it doesn’t really feel like there’s an age difference, including when we’re with my friends.But sometimes the age difference seems a bit more defined, in good and bad ways.Best Regards, The Team The thread reminds me a bit of the tv show 'Baggage'. Anyone can be a decent cook anyway to like a normal standard I mean. So I don't get why people brag/talk about it at all in any context.
Also, I never understand why people think of being a 'good cook' as having any importance in dating. There's just something so mundane and pointless about it. It's just so boring like to think of people actually having that as some kind of 'turn on' or requirement in a partner. The thread reminds me a bit of the tv show 'Baggage'.

Here is a list the top 5 pros and cons of dating an older man—applicable to most everyone who is older—that I’d never considered: The Bad: 5. Reactions to the age difference from friends, colleagues, family, etc. When Cole asked me on our first date, he suggested a day (Saturday), a time (noon), and three restaurants from which to choose. Cole has a career, a car, a house, plans for the future—I’m not enamored by the material possessions; rather, I respect his ability to commit to things.
have ranged from being unfazed to naming other couples they know with big age differences (I guess to reassure themselves? My mom is only two years older than him” and “He could biologically be your father” (thanks for that imagery…).

He’s not in the “finding himself” stage, living with mom and unable to decide on a career path.
This will be trying for you, but imagine how he feels. Military men have likely traveled to parts of the world you have not, and can tell you facts about different cultures/countries/states. Military men are used to being thrown into countries and situations with which they are unfamiliar, so when traveling, always expect to have a great navigator around.
Expect sleepless nights, and bouts of being on the receiving end of awkward silences. You need to try your hardest to understand, get him to eventually talk about it (preferably to a professional) and pretty much avoid all triggers — like war movies. You will be inundated with more random facts about places like the Middle East or the South than you care to cram into your brain. I won a round of trivia just because I knew the currency in Bahrain. I am a sucker for someone who is passionate about his work. They are modern day heroes; if that’s not something to be proud of, I’m not quite sure what is!
