I thought this was it also. It is SO frustrating to want to do something nice for someone and you can't get them to take the time to articulate what they want.
“What do you want for dinner?”
"I don't care. You decide. Whatever you choose is fine."
Only what I selected wasn’t fine. Or maybe I was looking for more than ‘fine’. If I’m going to invest 45 minutes making dinner, maybe I’d like to hear, “This is delicious! Thanks for making dinner.”
