Program Details

I am living alone temporarily and I’m not motivated to cook proper meals just for my self. And when I do cook my meals are a bit boring and unhealthy. Having someone here to cook or cook together makes my life much more healthy and happy.

I love dishes from all over the world and I’m always interested in trying new foods.

Since we will be sharing the living space with cooking, eating, conversation, music, movies, sightseeing, etc, it's important that we enjoy being together. I have many guy friends with whom I do many projects and social activities, but I am not comfortable waking up in the morning to breakfast with a guy. Or spending the evening with a guy watching movies and conversation.

So I prefer to have a female visitor at least 25 years old (30 is better) who has had enough experience with real life that we can find things to talk about.

Please come and cook for me!

Activities & Shift

The most important meal is evening, but if you have something you want do I can take care of myself sometimes. Lunch is also nice, but depends on your other activities.. Breakfast is not a big deal. You can sleep late if you like. I'm very flexible.

If we get along very well, I am happy to show you around the area and do some outdoor activities together. Cooking is the main requirement but enjoying your company is also important.
