A reader sent me an article that asked, “Would you rather date a guy who can fix your car or fix his hair?” Obviously, women like well-rounded men. The idea here, though, is that he would be good with his hands but not when it comes to “manly” things.
I wondered if domestic skills such as repairing things, cooking, or having knowledge of how to run a household was still something single people sought out. I know a lot of men who want to marry a woman who can cook, preferably like their Mother did. Those same men aren’t that handy with a hammer though.
Do you think that we are different from our parents in that we require less “homemaking” skills in our potential mates?
Would it bother you if someone you dated was not a good cook, or good with cars, or had other basic skills needed to make a home run?
Does this kind of thing even show up on our radars when we are “sizing” each other up?
