You're probably right....unrealistic expectation on my part...seriously. I judged her based on the fact that she was an engineer and I assumed she has those qualities. I'm not sure what qualities she calls upon to do her job but maybe they aren't those things.

You guys need to start searching for the right woman.

Yeah, there's a terrifying number of engineers of both sexes that lack all of those skills. Sadly, it ain't just your ex.

I've got the right woman. We've got a great life and love doing tons of things together. Projects just isn't one of them

My wife likes doing projects. Well, she likes telling me what to do. She reminds me that she's helpful, continuously.

If you need anything, or could use any kind of help, you have to ask 20 minutes prior to whatever you think is a reasonable time to wait for help. Because she will fsck around for 20 minutes before she's "ready". And in the summer that usually means not ready (like wearing flipflops moving something heavy). If there is something where there is downtime she will wander off so I have to get her to come back. I usually go through this exercise once every three months and that is enough.

My wife wants everything to be pinterest white. I hate white things. So I have no interest in doing any kind of house project because it's going to be painted fucking white. To me, white means cheap fucking chipboard from Ikea. I used to enjoy doing woodwork... have hated it for over a decade now.

We've been supposed to replace our kitchen and bathroom for years. I have zero interest in doing them. I tell her all the time she can pay someone else to do it out of the leftover money from paying half of our bills out of her paycheck.

My wife is a self starter and likes doing projects. Over the years she has gotten pretty decent at understanding mechanical stuff, how it goes together and at times has good suggestions that help me out.

She will help me in the garage if I ask but she won’t volunteer to work on any vehicles.

Mine would help if I wanted her to and if there were someone else to watch the kids, but a) I prefer to work alone, there are very few friends I even like getting help from, and b) I'm impatient and OCD so I would probably ruin it for her.

I've decided I'm using 'Barbecue weapons' and 'Kitchen weapons' from now on.

It is a rather catchy turn of phrase.

Anybody use the Black Stone cooking griddle? We got one and use it three to four times a week. Great for bacon and eggs, stir fries, steak. You name it.
