Gastrosexual … there could be a sexier name

I learned a new word today … gastrosexual:

They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach but it seems the dining tables have turned as increasing numbers of men are taking up cooking in a bid to seduce women.

Dubbed ‘Gastrosexuals‘ this new generation of men consider cooking more a hobby than a household chore and use their kitchen prowess to impress friends and prospective partners. -Mail Online via yumsugar

While, I’m not so into the sound of the word gastrosexual I am certainly into guys who can cook. This girl likes to eat! Is master chef on your list of ideal mate?

Cooking seems to become a trend all over the world. I for one, still enjoy eating rather then cooking ;)

I'm a TERRIBLE cook and have no desire to get any better. Thankfully I married a great man who loves to cook! In face, he's preparing dinner as I type. What a blessing!

My husband is for sure a gastrosexual! He seduced me with his food... and wine... and hotness of course :)

I'd love a guy to cook for me, and extra points if he does the dishes, too!

While the name just sounds....disgusting, I have absolutely no objection to a guy taking cooking as a hobby to impress me. I hate to cook and love a man who can work his way around a kitchen because I certainly can't!! I just need to find one of those....

My husband is a great cook! I didn't know I'd love it, but I do. He only has a few things he makes, but they're delicious and he really enjoys it! Hooray for my cooking guy!

I hate the word and honestly I can't understand why there IS a word for this. It's the term for a man who cooks well to try to attract women? I wasn't aware it deserved its own (terrible) word. I like a guy who can at least find his way around the kitchen. He doesn't have to be an amazing chef but he has to be at least as good as me (and I'm pretty awful).
