    Default Is your partner a fussy eater?

    SIL and I often send each other recipes for the thermie and quite often she replies with "DH won't eat that". And it got me thinking far out that would be hard to live with?
    DH eats anything I put in front of him. In 8 years there has only been twice that he didn't like what I cooked (they where disasters lol)
    I thought most men would just eat anything lol.

    So who has a fussy eater?

    Yep, DS bio dad is a fussy eater, and my last partner (not DP) is a fussy eater, drove me nuts! Especially when the ex thought he was a better cook than I was (sorr,y but cooking steak and veg or spag bol every night doesnt make you a "better" cook than me, at least I try new recipes!)

    Not really, though he is fussier than me.

    He doesn't do 'easy' dinners, like toasties. He likes proper dinner every night. That's a bit fussy IMO!

    Not at all, he just doesn't do fruit in savoury dishes. So no Apricot Chicken, no fruit in curry..that sort of stuff. Fine with me, we just have those things when he is away

    Mine will eat anything but risotto which drives me insane.... I love risotto!

    He also doesn't eat cake... That is just plain strange to me

    Nope, not at all. The only time he won't eat what I cook is if it's burnt or otherwise inedible (it happens)

    He does most of the cooking anyway.

    Not at all. Maybe things that I know he doesn't like I don't cook but I can't think of any. Except for sweet potato and pumpkin but he eats them anyway.

    We got together at uni, so I've seen him eat some pretty revolting things over the years as poor uni students.

    Mine is fussy.
    No mushrooms, cucumber, fish, pork, strawberries, mango, passion fruit, celerity, casseroles, Asian food served more than once a fortnight.

    Tough titties- I cook it he eats it and picks out what he doesn't like or just sucks it up. He isn't allergic to any of it. He just prefers not to have it. In saying that- I don't cook with some ingredients very often for his sake. But you can't have a good strog without mushrooms. And sometimes I just want a good strog.

    I do all the cooking so he can lump it or leave it. Same with ds. If you don't want it - fine. But I'm not dancing around what everyone will or won't eat every night. I'm usually pretty accommodating and we have plenty of meals we all love.

    Mine eats everything. Even my cooking fails. I think stems back from living in a orphanage and his time in the army. No choice to be fussy. Eat or starve.

    I have one child who has oral aversion but I consider that fussy as it has a medical bases.
