to be a bit miffed that my favorite dish cooked by my bf was taught to him by his ex?

that's about it really, just found out by his son saying "did mum teach you to cook that? " had to force it down.

YABU and childish really, though I understand. A good dish doesn't HAVE to come from a good person or someone you like!!!

Seriously? YABU. He had to have learnt it from somewhere, and it's not his fault it's your favourite, is it?! I've learnt all sorts from exes, it would never occur to me to tell new partners exactly what confused

What is it?

IWantATowel Fri 29-Mar-13 18:24:59

I thought I was being childish, just checking!

Can't tell if YABU until I know what the dish is.

If it's food, it tastes nice & hasn't been poisoned, then I don't really care where the recipe originated - YABU!

Childish and totally NOT understandable. You know they had sex as well don't you? Or will that knowledge put you off that as well!

Think of it this way.

She put all the effort in to teach him but you get to enjoy the results.

That might help you to feel better about it.

YABU though.

IWantATowel Fri 29-Mar-13 18:28:51

okay I'm definitely bu. I'll apologise to him for asking if all his other dishes were learned from her too. insecure perhaps?

deemented Fri 29-Mar-13 18:30:25

Does it honestly matter? It's you he's cooking it for now, isn't it?

Pandemoniaa Fri 29-Mar-13 18:30:33

YABU. In fact, the very idea that you had to "choke it down" is utterly ridiculous. Be pleased that he can cook.

Yeah. Best not bounce around on his cock either, because she did that. Oh, and don't ring him up because she did that. Don't look at him either, she probably looked at him.
I don't think insecure is a strong enough descriptor.

CutePuppy Fri 29-Mar-13 18:32:08

You should be grateful to her. smile

IWantATowel Fri 29-Mar-13 18:32:34

thankyou fake, it does help. yes I know they had sex and that is a good point. I am bu now I feel better because I know I'm being a twat. Thank you ladies smile

hopefloats Fri 29-Mar-13 18:33:29

I bet she taught him that thing he does in bed too smile

IWantATowel Fri 29-Mar-13 18:35:16

okay thank you gay I get the point. I am in the queue for cbt. plus I have upped my prozac lately due to these reactions.

MrsSpagBol Fri 29-Mar-13 18:36:32

Hopefloats that was unnecessary!

comingintomyown Fri 29-Mar-13 18:38:32

Oh god my only reason to think about a BF is he might cook me a meal smile

IWantATowel Fri 29-Mar-13 18:38:45
