Kareem Abdul Jabbar knows his stuff. In a list of life lessons, he commands men to COOK FOR THEIR WOMAN.

….advice! I’ve always loved this man. Everyone does. Respectable, never any drama, a stellar ball player, wise – he is the ultimate package.  I think we can all agree that it’s good to listen to him whenever he has something to say, right? He created an amazing list for Esquire where he shares everything he wishes he knew before turning 30.

Guess what’s in the middle of his list? Cooking.

11. Cook more. After I got divorced I missed home cooked meals and the only person I had to rely on was the guy in the mirror. Plus, I found it impressed women if you could cook a good meal. Once, very shortly after I started cooking for myself, I had a first date with a woman I really wanted to make a good impression on. Of course, I could have done the usual celebrity thing: fancy restaurant, signing autographs, wait-staff fawning. But I wanted this to be special, so I decided to cook for her, everything from soup to dessert. Some women get a little freaked seeing a 7’2” black man with a carving knife and butcher’s apron, but she appreciated the effort. Which was good because the soup was a little salty, the steak a little overcooked, and the flan a little watery…

The entire list is worth a read, so have a look. Women, if your man ain’t cookin’ for you yet – forward this quote.  And if you’re a man already in the know, you’re now in the same mindset as the 7’2″ master of the court.

  1. haha, I love to cook! Many of my ex-gfs have normally put on 15lbs in the first year that we’re dating. Well, I’m married now and my wife had actually put on about 30lbs the first year we were living together

      Oh Garick, I understand. I call it the “Love 15!” That first spurt of hanging out and eating together typically pacs on the pounds. But my husband averted those by making healthy meals for me. Hence, this blog!

  2. I LOVE a man who can cook! He really is a wise man.

    The first time my husband cooked for me he forgot to put the lid on the blender properly and wound up covered in spinach soup! But Kareem is right. I was impressed that he had even tried to cook for me, although it has to be said that for the sake of the decor he doesn’t venture into the kitchen very often now 🙂
