Man lies to picky eating GF about his cooking; says, ‘you need to get over it.’ UPDATED

Sometimes, relationship posts on Reddit can appear to be more than a little petty. But, for one user, her seemingly innocent post illuminated some much deeper problems with their relationship.

“AITA for being mad my bf won’t make noodles the way I like?”

Okay this sounds dumb, but hear me out. I have always been a picky eater especially when it comes to tomatoes. Ever since I was a kid my dad would make my spaghetti different from the rest of the house. I like having an essence of the sauce flavor on the noodles but not the overpowering flavor having noodles bathed in sauce creates.

So, here’s where it gets a bit odd, my dad would separate my spaghetti from the families after putting the sauce on and then would rinse the sauce off with the sink and strainer. I love noodles like this as it is a nice subtle tomato vibe given to the mild spaghetti.

My (20) boyfriend (26) has known about this since we first started dating. He always told me my food habits were cute. We have been dating for almost three years now and moved in together at the beginning of the pandemic so we could be in lock down together.

Ever since we moved in together he insisted on taking charge of cooking and all cooking related tasks (dishes, grocery shopping, etc) and he assigned me the role of cleaning the bulk of the apartment. We split other tasks pretty much 50-50 too.

Everything was perfect and he always SEEMED so be making noodles the way I liked them when we had them. This was until last week when we last had spaghetti.

We ate and everything was good but afterwards he started teasing my saying things like, ‘you really like your pasta with an ‘essence’ of tomato’ and ‘how was your tomato ‘essence’ babe?’ Always using finger quotes around the word essence.

After a few comments I felt something was off and asked him if he had done anything differently with tonight’s noodles than he usually does and he started laughing. When he finally stopped laughing he told me the whole truth while smirking. He said ‘I didn’t do anything different than I USUALLY do. I have never been making it the way you have requested’.
