Even if your partner does most of the cooking around the kitchen, there’s no reason you can’t return the favor once in a while. Don’t worry if you think you’re hopeless at cooking, because everything’s going to go a lot better than you think. Here’s why you should cook for your partner occasionally, even if you’re a newbie in the game.

It’s More Meaningful

Don’t let the fact that you’re “not a good cook” deter you from trying to make something for them. You going the extra mile to do this for your significant other will make it even more meaningful to them—precisely because it was a challenge for you.

You Might Actually Be Great At It

Who knows, you may discover in this process that you’re actually pretty darn good at cooking. And what better time to discover a new skill you had than while doing something sweet and romantic for your partner?

Major Brownie Points

Listen, we know you’ve probably already locked in your significant other, and he or she probably loves you to death. But even if they’ve already devoted themselves to you, that doesn’t mean they don’t want to be pampered every now and then. Doing this gesture for them will show that you can still be spontaneous and try new things—and you’ll get major brownie points for it.
