Am I weird?

lol... thats a loaded question... okay ladies I have recently found a new interest and it is not ladylike at all.. I LOVE auto body work! I love my truck but it is a 97 GMC sierra and pretty beat up (former work truck) I have wanted this style truck since they came out (extended cab..love it!) Hubby is a mechanic at a Chevy dealer so we decided I could get this truck and fix it up.. he does mechanic work so I only pay for parts and a friend is willing to paint it if we do the body work.. so I decided DH can teach me to do that part.. well ILOVE IT! but friends and family are picking at me saying its not feminine and makes me seem butch to like spending time at the shop, working on sanding, bondo, and i even got my first lesson in painting! is it strange to love it so much?.. DH says he likes that i am into it.. but WILL he start seeing me as less of a woman? am I weird (in this situation only ladies :D)?

  • There is nothing wrong liking what you like. and who cares what other people think? so what if you are a tomboy. it doesn't make you less of a woman. trust me i am a tomboy almost all the way. but i still like dressing up and having my hair and nails done. go figure. you can have it both ways.

  • uhmm a lot of guys think its kinda sexy if females are into that...my fiance thinks its sexy that i can tell him what kind of car is behind us or in front of us JUST based on its lights (this is usually at night)

  • My DH says that when men see women doing "manly" stuff, they think, "Aw, how cute."
