What do you think of...?

a man who doesn't like sports (except baseball), isn't handy or good with tools, not really into cars or hunting or any of that "macho" stuff. But does like to cook and is an okay cleaner for the most part.

Loves being with his family, not the guys (doesn't really have any guys, but I digress)

Is loyal to his GORGEOUS wife (bats eyelashes), although does have a wandering eye but I forgive that.

No college degree or any professional skills that will get him a well-paying job and has been unemployed so long he can't find any real work (full-time). I fly helicopters for a living (mostly for hospitals) and it pays very well and he does part-time work, but its intermittent and pay isn't all that great.

I ask cuz he really feels useless and like he's a loser. I tell him he's not and does a great job with the family and house. I dunno what else to tell him or do for him.

  • Heck! I think that is great! Honestly, it sounds like both of you enjoy it the way it is! Why would it make him a loser because he does not earn a large income? In my opinion, he is one hell of a man when he is willing to run the household and help his wife achieve her dreams!

  • Honestly, he doesn't sound like the type of guy I would really hang around or be with...I kind of like the macho guy stuff. But if you are happy with him, just keep assuring him you're happy with him and with who he is.

  • I think he sounds great! Nothing wrong with a SAHD! My DH has told me before that he would love to be a SAHD. He knows the kids can be a pain in the butt sometimes, but knows that spending all that quality time with them would be worth it. =) Tell your DH to stop being so hard on himself...sounds like he's doing a great job!

  • Sounds like a real keeper! Once in awhile there are part time ads on www.indeed.com that are just a few hours here and there. Just one idea..............
