Are handy woman unattractive? Reason I ask is, throw some wood at me and i’ll build something out of it. When my boys were small i built their tree house, I’ve fixed everything in my home, including plumbing. I’ve renovated inside my home on my own, I can fix most car issues. My boys are teens now and I am divorced and continue to take care of it all on my own. My boys say that I am making it harder on myself to meet a nice man because of how handy I am. That I come across as to independent and manly. I am not really looking or dating but I say if it happens it happens. But my boys say as long as I continue, that it will not happen. What do you think?

Are independent handy woman unattractive?

Dear Carol,

I wonder the same thing. I was also a single Mom and I happen to be very handy. I have replaced the blower motor in my hot tub, replaced the nano rod in my hot water heater, roofed a shed, stripped and sanded a deck and that was all before lunch…blah, ha, ha, ha. Sorry I had to!
But really those things were just a very few of the things I have done on my own. Other women think I’m nuts and men sometimes like I am competing but the truth is I love working on things on my own. My girlfriends say men love helpless women and my guyfriends say confidence is the real sexy but I don’t know for sure.

I say this is me and I like being capable and independent so if you aren’t digging that vibe it’s your bad not mine!

Good Luck & Huge Muther Hugs,

One Tough Muther
