When you branch out into something you’re not confident in order to treat your partner, you’re probably quite nervous, apprehensive as to what they’ll think, and a bit stressed about the whole situation. You want some acknowledgment that you’ve made the effort, even if the end result isn’t quite up to scratch.
You probably don’t expect your partner to text her mom and complain that you’ve made a terrible job of it. Talk about taking the wind out of your sails. At least the mom, in this case, was on his side, telling her to just suck it up and eat it. Thanks, mom!
