So if you are a good cook and need something fixed don't hesitate to ask.


Like I said before...I can think of a couple of things that need fixing(and yes, I can cook).

But will he leave the hat on!!!!????

Barter? I think the term is "symbiosis". You do something for me and I do something for you in return. No? I raelly had to think about it the first time I saw the ad myself. No I am not the original author. Sure got a chuckle outta me though. (and a grin)

It would have to come with a lengthy disclaimer perhaps. Nice to traval with an ad like that too I guess. I believe the liquor is flowing tonight. That is normal but look at the flavour of threads this peculiar evening.

Yes there are still gentlemen out there and i quite pride myself on being one of them. Most people don't understand that there are people like us that don't ask for anything in return. Doing nice things for people is it's own reward because it makes me feel good to help others. Wish there were more of us out there.

Even though there are alot of things I can manage and have learned to do on my own, that are usually foreign to my gender... I'd prefer a man to come over and fix the leaking faucet, build the back deck and a new shed...etc., and I certainly do not mind helping with that and perhaps learning a thing or two. In return I can cook a great dinner, with meals to take home, some baked goods and all your buttons on your shirts...they'll even match... no holes in your jeans..etc.

It's a great idea and everyone gets that little bit of comfort that the other provides and everyone's happy.

as for the poster 2 up, this post is NOT here for 'intimate favours', that offer is NOT lacking from the 'guy fishies' on this site... although many of us women DO need a man to do some work, so get your mind out of the gutter, and get up the ladder and clean my gutters...

seriously... guys, great meals..... mending down... some of us do need help with the 'manly chores' (some women really can do their own)

or are there NOT as many gentlemen out there as I imagine there to be? pondering that thought now

I agree H & P.. sometimes there are just some guy things that we can not do! Sometimes we do need help with the manly chores when we own our own homes.

Now, if I was renting an apartment or something, I am sure I could manage nicely doing all the guy stuff and there would not be anything that I could not manage. But when we are responsible for all the repairs, etc, would be nice to have a man to help out.... and intimate favors are not involved.... geesh!

I know that there are lots of gentlemen out there as there are lots of gentlewomen. Friends helping friends is what it's all about.

Yes, women are in most cases as capable as a man for most chores/repairs but once in a while we ALL run into something that we could use a little help with. The real tough part is asking for or accepting help. The give and take of friends, without any expectation of "reward" is where we would all like to be.

My feeling is that it is a spirit of "community" that we seek, just like the "old fashioned" barn raising parties of days gone by, friends and neighbours helping one another just to make it a better place to be.

Most contractors don't want to do the 'liddly little' chores that require doing. The wait list is months long... I can and will pay cash for work, but, again NOONE is doing these small chores. As for having 'ex-husband, dads and brothers, not everyone has one available or helpful. So, again, the call goes out..... "Rent a husband" meals, mending, baking... what else? I need some stuff done and so do other LADIES on this site. Surely there are talented handymen out there that are gentlemen too.

I do not play the helpless female , there is alot of stuff that I CAN do. I have always done my own painting, picture hanging, yard work, etc, etc.. as a matter of fact I have a full set of my own tools.

There are alot of things I have no knowledge about and would not hesitate to ask for help, as a matter of fact I have done this often. I have a "Telus" friend who fixed all my phone jacks in the upstairs of my house in return for a nice chicken dinner and bottle of wine.

What I really really need a "rent a husband" to do is go into my crawlspace (with all those spiders....ewwwwwwww) and bring out my summer stuff.

Would it suprise any of the women here that a lot of the guys can sew buttons, cook for themselves and, yes clean up after themselves(to some degree). I do NOT have my mind in the gutter. yet.
Desert? Can you do ambrosia? Can I show you. See? So where does this really end and start? Who's doing 'who for what' or is that 'what for who' I work in dirt. The west coast does have two things always: leaky roofs and basements. I do fix both. And both are very costly so how do you barter that?

^^^and women can fix roofs, drywall, plumb, paint, ....you name it they can do it just as well as a man can sew on a button, clean a house or make ambrosia for dessert...but wouldn't it be nice to not have to climb down off the roof you just fixed, cook dinner, clean up and sew on buttons ....lol

I think this is more about men and women helping each other out in ways that they feel very confident about....that's all.

I could so totally go for this...why not!!! I have things I need done around my house that I just can't do by myself! i.e. Door hung on my office, new roof on my garage, french doors to my living room....I would happily trade off rent a wife jobs (No not that...unless your really cute!) for rent a husband jobs ;-)

I too have learned a lot of things, gyp roc fillling (yes, i know that's NOT how you spell it, but hookt on fawnix workt fur me), sanding, putting on light switches, etc, but haven't seen anyone put up different light fixture, show me one, I will do the rest in my place. Also, I have a blown pipe.. later, i will want to use that garden hose connected to that pipe, and the working plumbers prefer BIG jobs, not just piddly stuff.

Picture, I can hang, just some are heavy paintings...... I learnt a lot, just need a helping hand.

Soooo, this is my next propositon. I will host breakfast, lunch and supper... have over like three guys... do all my chores in a day... my girlfriends and I will prepare great meals, mend your stuff, entertain you with our wit for the day......

Any takers?

Anyone else need stuff done? Here is your chance... What do you need? what will YOU offer?

I already own a man slave (non-sexual). He carries any purchases and walks 4 paces behind me.

I am more handy than he is so he is mainly just used for lifting heavy things.
