Apparently cooking a good meal tops the list in most attractive skills in a lover. Extra marital dating site surveyed 500 women, asking them the question ‘what’s the most vital skillset for your potential partner – DIY, playing a musical instrument, speaking in public, dancing, speaking a foreign language, or cooking a good meal?’ Cooking fared the best, getting the most votes.


“The result of our survey proves that the old saying ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ also applies to women.” Claire Page, spokesperson for Illicit Encounters said, “People who seek affairs also seek escapism from their often boring, mundane lives. Both husbands and wives in stale marriages can begin to resent their partner if they have to do the bulk a chore they don’t enjoy, such as cooking. It can naturally become a huge priority for them that their new partner has cooking skills so they don’t have to do the cooking themselves.”

The top ten meals women wanted were:

  • 1) Full English breakfast
  • 2) Shepherd’s pie
  • 3) Beef stew
  • 4) Lasagne
  • 5) Chicken Fajitas
  • 6) Spicy tacos
  • 7) Roast chicken and vegetables
  • 8) Spaghetti bolognaise
  • 9) Fish and chips
  • 10)Chicken Caesar salad
