Question Is it all Women ?

Or just mine.

She always asks what I want for supper, I give an answer and then she tells me that's not what I really want and decides to cook something else.
Why even ask ? This is an everyday conversation we have. I just give random responses now.

I have to ask mine what she wants cause she is so particular but she can never give me an answer.

Every day!

I think mine asks my opinion just so she can figure out what not to do and it doesn't only apply to food.

You should consider yourself lucky though... If my wife just cooked, I'd eat whatever she made, without complaints.

Most of the time, the conversation starts with "I'm hungry. What do you want to do for dinner?", followed by 10 minutes of frustrating suggestions, and then me either cooking something or taking us out to eat.

All the best,
Glenn

22 years and we still have this conversation. Last night we had it don't matter to me dinner.

Little smokies and mac and cheese. For some reason we always have these on hand.

Same applies to going out to eat.

Here's one for you, based on that kind of communication.

Open a restaurant that serves the food you like and name it 'Whatever' or 'I don't care.' Ask her what SHE wants for dinner every night.

Profit.

its all women, a disease/plague really. I do the cooking 90% of the time. I ask at times but already know what will be done. Just makes her feel like I give a rats ***. Same with the kids, they eat what I make when I make it. She will ask my 3 YO what he wants.......shoot me

I have never understood why people ( mostly women, but men too ) are so picky about what they eat on any given day. If you are married you probably know what you spouse doesnt like, so yes, thats out. But otherwise, if you like a particular food, but dont necessarily want it today, is it really that big of a deal to eat it anyway? For me its just not worth arguing about. So I dont really want tacos today, but she does. Fine, we eat tacos. I will live. And vise versa.

I get tired of hearing "it doesn't matter", "what do you want", "you pick", "what sounds good to you". I had gotten to the point where I'd ask what she wants and when she says "what do you want", I'd tell her I want her to make a decision. This isn't life or death...

As I cook 95% of the time, I've gotten to the point where I don't even ask what she wants because she can NEVER make a decision. I'll cook whatever sounds good and she can eat that or fix a bowl of cereal. Sounds like I'm an azzhole but she'll seriously debate about what to cook for an hour...

For a while, I'd always just drive to Burger King when she said "It doesn't matter". Because she hates Burger King!

After about 2 or 3 times of that, the response became "It doesn't matter, as long as it isn't Burger King."

All the best,
Glenn

I'm not picky and have a simple diet, we have been married for 28 years. This conversation has been going on for 28 years.
I eat what ever she cooks so why even ask for my input ? Just cook it and I'll eat it.

Another example
I installed the tv in the new house Sunday night, dish came to hook up the satellite yesterday. After supper she said to pick out a movie I wanted to watch and we would sit on the couch and watch it together.
Every movie I picked she said she didn't want to watch. Ended up turning off the tv and listening to music instead.

When our kids were at home (gone now) there was always a meal on the table. Now it's pretty much "every man for himself". That way you get what you want every time. If there's something cooked I pretty much cook it. Can't complain, if she don't like it she can cook something else.

My answer is usually " whatever you'll eat". I'm not very picky when it comes to food however my wife and kids are. It's gotten to the point where they're so picky it's annoying to them as they get tired eating the same thing lol

I do all the cooking, or about 99% of it, so if she asks, I tell her the same thing she use to tell me when she did most of the cooking, "this is what we are having or you can have the second choice, "you can take me out to eat!".

I have a wife and 3 daughters. Getting them all in tune with an agreeable meal is like herding sheep. The struggle is real. I usually just throw something in a crockpot or lay out something and that’s what they get. Seems to be less complaining that way.

I think they are all that way. Mine does the same thing whether it's for her cooking dinner or going to a restaurant. I just know that I have to give about 4 or 5 suggestions before she makes up her mind on something I did not suggest.
