Sorry it was spent cleaning a chef coat though. I wish I stumbled across your site a lot sooner! I am feeling so empty, lonely and sad in the past few weeks. We had plans to do something one evening and he had to cancel last minute due to scheduling conflict, etc. I felt like I had no life. I hated the fact that I was at the mercy of his schedule.
I think I made a huge mistake. We do love each other. The last minute changes in their schedules are so hard to get used to. It never hurts to pick up the phone and tell him what you just wrote.
Thank you so much. I feel bad for ending it and shutting him out because I thought it was the best way to move forward. I do regret my actions. Thank you again for the advice. And your story also gives me hope that I, too, can make it work if I really tried. My husband and I have been together for six years, and his crazy schedule actually inspired me to start my own business so I can have more flexibility to be with him.
I know when children enter our lives it will grow increasingly more difficult. As it is, our friends are never really sure if he will be able to attend their functions or not and are very forgiving.
He will still cook at home and try different things based on the latest trends in food sometimes that means we have five different types of pickled quail eggs in the fridge, but there are always people willing to take them off our hands! I told him once the passion is gone he will need to switch to consulting for better hours, but for now he is happy and I am happy I have found a way to adjust to his hours with my business.
Heather - so glad to hear you started your own business to have more flexible hours!! I too am dating a chef for about 8 months now and it is honestly so hard. I myself already have trouble being alone, so to add a boyfriend, who I live with to always be gone and to never have anyone to hang out with, really bums me out. Oh Nicole you are not alone! Glad you found me! And we do have a support group. Come join us!!
I was surprised but grateful to land on your website and read through your posts which make me feel more comfortable and that I am not alone or the only one with this problem.
We have been together for 2 years and we are quite content with how things are going. We both work full time jobs in similar industries which means we get along with each other very well. I would like advice from your experiences on how to not get super stressed with being on my own during busy periods? How do you get him to communicate more? How can I make him understand what I am going through.
Ainsley Harriott's Short Bio
As far as not getting super stressed and struggling with the communication, I think all you can do is talk about it with him. That seems to work well for us. I live in London and have only been dating my chef for a couple of months but already realise this is going to be harder than I thought. We met online and really hit it off, talking daily over messenger and being excited to meet each other.
We live about 40mins away and to begin with were seeing each other quite often, and it was great. I spend more time with his TV than him. I really like him and want to keep seeing him but I also would like him to keep making an effort like he was when we first met.
Am I being unreasonable? Should I accept this and be glad when I do get to see him? Genuine questions that Id really welcome advice about. Will keep reading your blog, so glad I found it! Hi Chanel. Have you tried talking to him about it? Has he been extra tired lately? I am a 19 year old girlfriend of 3 years to an apprentice chef who works around hours per week in Adelaide.
We live together, and I study nursing. I work mornings, he works nights. He is stuffed when he gets home, and Im asleep. This blog is fantastic! These posts have really touched me, and helped me understand.
Oh I just stumbled across your blog and subsequently your facebook page and support group! That days off are never guaranteed and requests for days off mostly go un noticed.
Thank you for having this blog! Hi Leah! Hope things slow down a bit after the Christmas season! He stopped school a little while now and recently started back.
I used to spend soooo much time with him and he with me, but now its school, work, home. I work from 8ampm. How could I make this work? Those opposite hours are really hard. It sounds like you have to squeeze in time anywhere you can meet for a quick breakfast or early dinner, etc.
Thanks for replying!! It is hard. Thank you!!! I guess having strong bonds with your extended family, aunts, uncles, cousins helps quite a lot. But to be honest, I really like our lifestyle and since I like to make things my way it works perfectly when it comes to house chores, decor, food, etc. I wanted to point out that there are people like me who live with a chef and enjoys the lifestyle!
We just switch our holidays to a week after or before the high season. Pepper, thanks so much for mentioning that. We moved away from family about 7 years ago and it made the holidays and other special occasions harder, so I agree with what you said about how having strong bonds with your extended family really helps!!
I miss them so much! In this situation I am the Chef. I do have 2 months off a year as I work two seasonal jobs. I was dating a marvelous woman a couple of years ago, whom I had known for some time.
We started dating in the spring and through the summer. During that time my hours, even though I generally work more of them in a week, are a bit more flexible. Once I started working in earnest during the winter season ski resort it tore us apart. It gives me hope that eventually it might be possible for someone to put up with my career.
Love how you describe your hours. Glad you clicked on the link and thanks for sharing your thoughts. It is hard to combine two such opposite schedules!! My partner is a chef and we have been living together for just over 2 years.
He opened his own restaurant late last year and to say things have been stressful is an understatement. I love him to bits and he loves me. We are totally committed to each other and are each others rock, but there are many times when I question myself - is this the life I want to lead? Am I prepared to put in what feels like more into the relationship than he does? Am I prepared to do all the running about and looking after him? Am I prepared to live a life where I see him a couple of hours a week?
But there are days and times when I miss him and sometimes I miss him when he is home too because when he is home he is exhausted - he eats, watches some dull tv to wind down then to bed. On his days off, he sleeps in late and then usually late afternoon we get to spend quality time together. If we are lucky its usually a couple of uninterupted hours.
No phone calls, no emails. But then its back to work. I knew from the beginning what it would be like but I never ever thought it would be this hard. I am a tough cookie but there are a few nights when I have cried from feeling alone, from those stupid thoughts that manifest when he doesnt come home at a normal hour, from the times when he heads out with other chefs to get some down time, or guests in the restaurant dont leave until 2am! Its even harder when you have friends and family telling you that you deserve more and that you should give all this up.
No one else understands. Luckily I hang in there because I know that he is the one for me and that no matter what, he loves me and will look after me. I think that forever more we will be on a roller coaster ride. Everything you said sounds very familiar. And a roller coaster ride is a great way to describe it! Feel free to join us over in our closed Facebook group if you want to chat more.
Its so comforting to come across this site. I too have been handling the ups and downs of dating a chef. It may not be like spending hours cooking but the hours were the same for me back then. But i remind myself what it was like back then working in hospitality.
When his free and when he can help me out with stuff around the house etc. I still occasionally do it after 20 years! I also have to add, when my partner does get a few days off work which rarely happens, we always make the most of it by going things that are physically draining like you mention earlier on in the thread Jess by not going on 4 mile hikes. So we go to the beach, camping or swimming by the river with a bbq to top off the day.
And its then we really reconnect. Those days are what I embrace. It is good to share with people who have to face the same situation as I do. My fiance and I met as friends on job 5 years ago in the middle east. The thing is, as i came from the same line myself, I thought it would be easier for our relationship as I understand the demands and limitations of his job.
Fortunately both our families are very supportive and are helping a lot with the wedding planning and arrangements. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Thanks for sharing your thoughts since you are both in the industry.
Hi Ruth. I heard long distance relationships are hard and that is a big time change to have to deal with. Would you like to join us over in our closed Facebook group and chat with some other girlfriends? Hi Jennifer, Thank you for replying back.
Is it me being unreasonable and not understanding? Honestly, we can try to understand the best we can, but never fully get it because we have not worked in that position and vice versa. I love this blog Jennifer! I have been dating my bf for over a year who is not the chef but owner of two restaurants. He only takes off thanksgiving Christmas and New Years day.
I struggle with wondering if I am a priority or what will it be like if we were married with kids. Thanks Katherine. I am glad that I came across your blog, looking up for ideas to surprise my man when he comes back home exhausted today. I am dating a chef and we are soon getting married. Since past month, I have been spending my summer at his place, but guess what?
The past month gave me a real glimpse of how our married lives are gonna be together. I am happy to be with him, and hope we stay together as you guys did.
Best of luck on your upcoming marriage!! Thank god i found this page. I was thinking of what gift should i give my boyfriend. As you know being a chef is very stressful. Thank you and more power. Here are some ideas compiled by fellow chef wives and girlfriends.
I hope it helps. Thank you soo much. Keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing the blog with her Wayne and for the encouragement! Best of luck to you both! My question is how do I not let his job affect how I feel and what should I do instead of going out on a date.? Hi Chantelle. Hope that helps.
Hi Jennifer. My girlfriend is a chef, she is brilliant at what she dose and loves it. When we started dating over a year ago and everything was great we would see each other when we could and it worked. Now I need a full time job again Monday to Friday as. Have you got any advice or know someone who has gone through something similar? Hi Paul. However, I do know a few people who have been in that situation.
Hello, My new boyfriend of 9 months is a chef.
Dating chef meme
He recently told me today that sometimes when he is doing the dessert and sometimes serveds people that women pass him their phone numbers. This makes me very upset.
Is this true? Am I over reacting by being upset? I am being unreasonable to expect he would reject the phone numbers?
I feel very disheartened and would like some insight from other people who are dating chefs. Thank you kindly in advance. I have heard it does happen a lot in this industry. This is probably a better topic to talk about in private. My partner is 23 and is three months into his apprenticeship. He gets 10 hours between shifts as a break. That was great to read. I adore him and want a future, please help! This blog is amazing!!! I wish I had found this blog years ago!
Like so many of you other ladies, as much as I love my alone time, I struggle with his schedule sometimes especially lately.
Having your friends and family not understand they got over it after about a year. The thoughts of if we have children, can I handle doing most of it alone? But I love him, and so I stay. I just requested to join the closed group, because it would be so wonderful to be able to discuss these things with people who understand!!!
Just approved your request for the group. Looking forward to getting to know you more. I am super happy that I found this place to share my feelings. After long chats and phone calls I took a plane to finally see him.
He was a personal chef at that time and had pretty much time in the evening.

Chef Memes. ated daily, for more funny memes check our homepage. Jul 31, Everyone has a favorite chef, whether it's a Food Network hosts, a local cook, or the Swedish Chef. If you love food and can respect the work that goes into making it great, a chef might be your perfect match. Here are 15 reasons to date a chef: 1. If the way to the heart is [ ].
Now things have changed. Now he has open his own Restaurant! Which I am super proud of! I have helped him out to design the logo for his restaurant and have drawn pictures to hang in the restaurant. I visited him again in Summer to help out. The business has just started.
I made plans to visit him, leaving in 8days he totally agreed my stay at his place and be there for 3 weeks. But, recently - he seems very very very super duper busy. I told him yesterday that I feel like some kind of electronic component.
He sleeps at the restaurant sometimes. And told me he has to focus on his business. There is nobody right now who can help him. Because it is not a big restaurant he is doing it all by his self. I miss him so much.
And I do understand pressure and stressendless hours of work. I am a film director, so when I am on shooting, there is no time to communicate with people out of the set. Long distance relationships are so hard. I hope you are able to get some clarity when you are together soon. Try not to read too much into anything from so far away. Hi there, First-time blog writer so this feels a bit weird for me, but I am at my wits end. Obviously, like everyone here, I have a relationship with a chef.
I am hoping to maybe get some little tips and tricks on how to deal with this. We talk when we get a chance, but obviously, those chances are so slim. If we do get a day to spend together, he is usually so tired that I feel so bad to be taking his sleeping time away from him.
I do think it might just be this time of the year as well, families being together, a lot of invitations that have a plus one option and not being able to tick that box.
This time of year is definitely hard! I understand. Keeping busy has always helped me, but there are times I am still lonely, even with 3 kids around all the time!
Enjoy the times you have together, even if they are late at night or early in the morning. Feel free to join us over in our closed Facebook Group. We struggle and we had 2 months break due to lack of time. Its really hard for me for he is part of me now and i decided to give a chance this time. He told me he will try but of course the usual is back. I became more understanding about it. He always complained he is tired and exhaustedNot having time like no dates or not seeing him for a week or sometimes 2 weeks is normal in the relationship?
When he was home, he slept and then all his waking hours were working. His few days off, we saw him a little, but he often needed to sleep. I am dating a chef for two years now. He is an exec chef for a well known 5 star hotel oversea. So my challenges is not only he is a chef but the relationship is a long distance one. One thing I can say about dating a chef is that dating a chef drives me to insanity.
I visited him frequently and he is forever working even during my visits and i think I am mentally and emotionally depleted. I get so jealous of the attention and time and special amenities he is giving to VIP guests. I have given up many times but he would then persuade me to stay. My partner is a heaf chef which means its work work work even when your lying in bed at night theres someone emailing himhes days off well if he gets them are always fall of work training menu tasting etc drives me potty.
I am also currently dating an executive chef. My family has a restaurant and I asked him to help me out. He went here without hesitations and now we are working together. I am also a chef but I now focus on pastries, now I am also managing the restaurant while he stays in the kitchen and sometimes helping me out with the management. As I read this article I can really relate especially that we are working and living together. It is not easy to deal with all the stress because they are usually ill-tempered and they can snap in an instant.
You should just go with the flow and let them know that you understand them whole-heartedly. You will really be confused at first but eventually you will understand how they behave.
They are not really sweet but they show affection in other things. Jennifer, Thank you so much for this post.
I have fallen in love with an amazing chef amazing person and incredibly talented and I am now experiencing some of the frustrations. However, after reading through your testimonial and the experiences of others, I feel more confident about how I feel about my SO. I love him and he loves me too. We try to send e-mails to each other everyday, we skype maybe twice or 3 times a week.
Hello, I just started dating a chef in March. I work He recently just started at a new restaurant and now I only see him at pm. I am so tired of staying up to spend some time with him. I can deal for a little while since he is doing an opening for a company, but is this it for life? Hi Karen. The hours during restaurant openings are definitely worse than normal chef hours, but normal hours still tend to be really long, and opposite of jobs. You have no idea how helpful this blog has been. My boyfriend went from line cook to JR Sous to chef within the past few years.
Our relationship and family has always been a priority to him I know it but sometimes when I only see him to say good morning then to say goodnight it gets extremely hard and lonely. I literally cried reading your blog because I really felt like it was only me. It gets so lonely and none of my friends are with someone in the culinary industry so they constantly go out with there partners while I show up alone.
And no one has ever understood what I felt or what I was going thru. I love him and would never imagine leaving him but it does get hard and reading all this makes me feel hopeful. Glad you found my blog. Have you found our closed FB group?
GORDON RAMSAY MEME COMPILATION !?????
My boyfriend of 4 years started at the CIA this past March and has quickly become busier than ever. He recently became an RA and so the hours abd responsibilities have tripled. He goes on externship for 15 weeks at the end of October, and that is going to be rough ib itself.
Thanks, Kate. I just came across this blog.
21 Things You'll Understand If You're Dating A Chef
I still have much to read, but this has been really helpful. One thing that has been on my mind before finding this blog is that I wished we spoke with each other more when we are together, which gave me a sense that he may not like as much I like him. Again, thanks a ton! Now to continue my reading!
Good luck with your new job and finding a new day to spend time together. I know that can be hard with opposite schedules!
Hey, I just wanted to give a thank you to your blog.
That passion is the exact thing that made me attractive to my girlfriend, and the exact reason she left. Point is this: Your blog will hopefully deter romantic fantasies and save a few of us poor saps some heartache. Thanks yo. Hi Joshua. Thanks for sharing your story.
However, we became very serious, very quickly. He has been very upfront with his intentions of us being his last relationship, implying marriage. And while I share many of the same feelings, I begin to think about our future. I knew his work was demanding before we started dating but nothing could have prepared me. He works the typical 8am to whenever-he-gets-out, 6 days a week, grueling schedule.

At first his schedule did not bother me, as I am a student in my senior year of college and have two jobs which keep me fairly busy. What happens when I graduate and have a steady job? I cannot fathom having a family life with a nearly always absent father.
Finding your blog has both relieved me and reinforced my worries at the same time. Joshua commented saying that the same passion that attracted his girlfriend was eventually what drove her away. That sentence resonates with me. I love my Chef and am incredibly proud of all he has accomplished and aspires to accomplish, but worry I about if I can be happy in such a relationship.
Some of the anxiety might be stemming from my impending graduation, but I still feel these worries are valid, especially after reading so many other similar stories on your blog. Hi Kristen. The unknown of the future can always be scarry. Sometimes for better and sometimes for worse. You gave me hope! I was relieved to stumble upon your blog. Lol Well glad you found me. So Im sorry to point this out. I can imagine that does get the struggles like lonelyness people find your blog for.
No need to be sorry to point that out. I am the first to admit that I am blessed to be able to stay home full time! Before kids which feels like a lifetime agoI did work full time and had the opposite schedule of my husband. Hello Girls. Thank you so much for those kind words. Today is his 3rd day as a head chef and he is been working 12 hours a day.
We are both entrepreneurs so schedules are often very challenging to manage. Despite running my own business I def have more free time than he does so I get lonely. I just want cuddles, Netflix and a late night snack. Hopefully it becomes easier.
I hope that the break will give you some time to think and figure things out. I am so happy I have come across this blog. Make it worse I am recoverying from mental health. Also that I am not alone in feeling lonely when he works over weekends etc.
This site has given me hope, what a pleasant surprise to find!! For those of us who love deeply we do all we can to help keep perspective. It really has made me take a startled step back with a newfound clarity and compassion. A feel like I can see anew with hope. Drug and alcohol use and addiction. All these things are also seen in addiction.
By no means is this an issue for all but I want to acknowledge it is for some, adding an additional layer of distress and worry for us wives. You soo get it. Marry a Chef they said. Itll be fun they said. Well he does but rarely. He is soo exhausted from cooking all day that I do all the meals. Luckily I love to cook so its ok but still. Then theres the serious health problems from a destroyed hip from standing forever to diabetes from being overweight to high blood pressure from the stress.
Not to mention the many serious burns. Ohh and then there is the working for serious ass holes. Ohh and the constant changing of shoes. Ohh the endless hours of finding the holy grail of chef shoes Ughh. This has been such a hard life. But in the end I love this man. Im happy to say after years of making him see every dr I could get him to see on his days off he is finally healthy.
It isnt as glamorous as when he was an executive chef at a 5 star restaurant but now hes mine and not the worlds. Hell yes. And Im not apologizing for it. He is all mine now.
