A woman has been left baffled after she spent the night with her date who asked her to help him cook dinner – but he had no intention of letting her stay to eat

When you’re in a comparatively new relationship, it can be difficult to work out what the other person’s intentions and expectations are when it comes to dates.

But one woman on Reddit has been left particularly baffled after she spent the night with a man she’s been dating for the past year, who then asked her the following day if she wanted to “cook a nice meal together”.

And while that might sound like a nice date idea, there was one big caveat – he seemingly only wanted her to cook with him, and had no intention of letting her stay to truly eat the food they’d cooked.

In her post, the woman explained: “So yesterday I met with the guy I’ve been dating for the past year. During the date there was some friction, but we ended up talking it out. I slept at his place since we live in different cities, and the following day he asked me if I wanted to cook a nice meal together.

“This is something we like to do together for fun and would make up for the s****y evening. I think he suggested this because he knows I like cooking and spending time with him, so it would make me feel better. Great! Lovely idea, I was very excited to use some quality time cooking and eating together because we’re both foodies.

“So fast forward. We’re walking by the supermarket getting groceries for some elaborate 4-hour recipe we’re going to make. We’re walking past the veggie aisle or something when he suddenly mentions: ‘By the way, remind me to save you some food so you can have some in addition.’ I’m like ‘Uh sorry what do you average save some food?’”

The woman then revealed that her date truly had some friends coming over for dinner who would be eating the food with him, and he wasn’t planning on letting her stay to eat with them.

And when she was upset with the idea, her date “got very irritated” and blamed her for “making assumptions” about their dinner plans.

She additional: “seemingly, he has some friends coming over for dinner and I wasn’t invited to stay and truly eat the dinner. He wanted me to cook a 4-hour recipe with him, but failed to mention that I couldn’t participate in the eating part.

“I got quiet and upset because I was looking forward to spending some quality time with him eating great food and making up for a not so fun date. I also felt stupid and unimportant because of this.

“He got very irritated with me for ‘making assumptions that I would stay over for dinner’ and then being quiet and upset and avoidant about it when he told me I couldn’t. I told him I was truly quite upset that he didn’t tell me I couldn’t eat the dinner I would be cooking with him.

“He’d never asked me to stay for dinner: he’d just asked me to cook dinner with him and forgot to mention that I couldn’t stay to eat it. He got mad at me for being upset and consequently avoidant about it.

“I can see why it can be frustrating when I get upset, because I get very quiet and cold/avoidant. I’m aware this is a problem and I’m working on it. however, I feel like he should have communicated better and maybe cared about my feelings a little more. He typically is a great person and this incident feels way out of character.”

The woman explained she ended up not cooking dinner with her date, and commenters on the Reddit post said she did the right thing by walking away from the situation.

One said: “in spite of of the kind of relationship you have with him, you assumed what 99.99 per cent of people would assume in that situation: that you would be cooking a meal to proportion dinner together.”

As another additional: “It’s crazy that he thinks that would be an incorrect assumption on your part. Of course you assumed you’d be eating with him because that’s the normal thread of logic. I’m so glad you ended up not cooking for him.”
