I'm a good listener too (maybe because I don't like talkin').

I also have had a notion to learn to knit.

Since other Cyb ladies are ratting out their spouses... Mr ZG (hehehe...):

Paints my toenails
Loves getting a good foot massage with lots of lotion (and gives as good as he gets)
Brings me the paper, my reading glasses, and a cold Diet Dew every morning before he goes to work/plays golf
Takes over the cooking/shopping chores on the weekends

On the other hand, he gets really twitchy and suddenly has a lot to do if I want to watch a chick flick...:r:

^^Thank you for making me feel even less of a man. I going to climb into my scratchy long underwear now, and crawl into bed.

Now she posts that I eat quiche

No current man to speak of....

But the ex used to
-get a pedicure and manicure
-take forever to get ready
-pay $50 to get his balding head of hair cut
-try every beauty product that came into the house
-decorate incessantly

No current or ex wife or even SO to rate or is it ratting me out.
Is that good, bad or indifference ? :-D ;) :p

I’m Italian, nor ‘merkin, so the fact I like to cook or like wine don’t count. My “metro” side?

- I’m more into interior design than my wife is.
- I’m also tidier (but it’s all relative…).
- I actually care about clothes; especially nice stuff like silk scarves.
- I don’t really watch TV sports except for the World Cup and Euro Championship.
- I regularly buy flowers (for the wife / the daughter / the house).
- I like Volvos / dislike SUVs.
- I like cats.
- If it’s for plinking, enjoy middling calibers better than ‘macho’ calibers.
- Sad (real life) stories make me well up.

Other than that, pretty normal.

So, if this thread has about run its course . . . do we start a "Girls . . . embrace your inner guy." thread?

Or do the same rules about girls doing stereotypically masculine things not apply?
