Carolina, please forgive Cameron, men sometimes flirt with attractive women.  I am one of them. I sometimes (in the past, of course) flirt with some girls and have some relationships with them, but it's not serious, just a fickleness. I do love my wife and want to continue to be a good husband forever!

Hellos I´m from Mexico. In the Weekend, People here, eat in family, the sons and grandchildren the come to grandparents to have a delicious meal. But in the week, the single persons buy food for eat because they don´t have time to make food, the job is very absorbent.

I like cooking for other People because generally when i have finished i can not eat the meal i cooked. I prefer someone else to cook for me so i like eating mum plats they are always delicious.

I cook at home. I prefer natural meals to unhealthy food. Although, sometimes I can buy a takeaway from the vegetarian restaurant. I don't like waiting for waiters, and dishes, and the bill. It takes too much time.

I do not eat in a canteen, cafe because I am squeamish and home meal cheaper.

hi, i'm Phu, a newcommer.

I always cook at home ans think that do it OK. But I hate cooking every day. I like to cook in the mood only. It's hard for me to cook every day but I have to do it beacuse it more cheap than go to a cafe or a restaurant.
I like fried eggs with tomatoes. It's tasty and easy to cook)

Sometimes I cook at home. Especially I really enjoy cooking meal when I try to new recipes. Because I believe that trying different flavours enhance my creativity. Besides I think that is more healthy, tasty and low-cost . But lack of time is one of the factor of restrictive.

I prefer fried potato together other fried vegetables like squash, eggplant, pepper and tomato. Optionally we can sprinkle yogurt with garlic over.
