Today, I explained to my dad that I had spent over three hours baking, frosting, and decorating a cake from scratch and how proud I was of it. Without even looking up at me, he replied, "You really need a boyfriend." FML

I agree 100%. A girl who is so dedicated to precise baking, a hard craft, shouldn't just float around trying to find boyfriends because her dad tells her. She will find someone, with an open eye of course, who appreciates her for who she is.

why does everyone think theres something wrong if youre single? some people dont want to be in relationships or arent ready for one, for whatever reason. you should be proud you baked from scratch, its time consuming. ignore your dad and get a boyfriend on your terms, no one elses.

He was basically saying that she had so much free time to spend on the cake, and needs to be doing something "useful", like having a boyfriend... you know, because it's not like you'll be doing anything useful with the cake, like eating it or anything...
That's what people say when I tell them how long my drawings take. I detest people like OP's dad, who see that you spent a long time on something, and immediately jump to the conclusion that you are lonely/pathetic and that you need a boyfriend, because you are wasting your time by doing something that you love.

Oh, I thought the issue here was op spending days alone, beautifully decorating home made cakes, then eating the entire thing solo. I was about to suggest op at least look for a bestie to come over and help lower the calorie count.

Assuming he was doing something (without looking up at me). the dad might have been suggesting if she had a SO she wouldnt be inturupting him with her baking achievements. Some guys just dont talk much or want to relax in peace.
