Contrary to what most here probably think, I'm an incredibly easy person to live with.

I have only two "demands" in my household that my wife must abide by...

1. NO MARGARINE.

2. ALL TOILET PAPER IN THE HOUSE WILL BE COTTONELLE.

Do you have any "hard and fast" rules in your house?

Despite what the board may think, I'm a kitten on the home front.

Rulz:

No adultery (quasi/semi-pro/Internet versions included);

No clothing/towels on the floor EVER;

24 hours notice before dinners involving 8+;

Do not involve me in home improvement projects concerned with electricity or heights;

If it is a bug or vermin, just deal with it - don't tease me with it or engage ethical negotiations. :)

Seems reasonable, especially the bug thing.

I think so. It's not like I'm demanding we have "talks" all time or I pick out his wardrobe or anything. I married him because I genuinely like him; I never wanted to change him. The whole bug thing just seems like a normal courtesy to me.

There's something new, marry someone you actually like. :)

I've had so many friends through the years who married men as "fixer-uppers." Never works, of course. At least from what I've seen.

LOL! Mr. Snaps is not a "fixer-upper". He came complete with his own likes, dislikes, habits, predilections, and inclinations. If I hadn't been "okay" with all that, I would have gently dumped him like the other 20 guys.

I've been told that I'm hard to live with.
Things will be done my way in my own nest.

I've always fared better when I live alone. The only
exception would be my 1 offspring, I fashioned him
in my own image so he is welcome anytime to stay
as long as he likes. He's about the only human that
doesn't get on my nerves.

Agree on Cottenelle.

Most of my life I have lived alone or had a short term female roomate. There have been other times where I took a couple of young people into my home as a favor to my church, as they had no where else to go and they found my rules were worse then the ones they had at home. :)

Now I own a house with an attached apartment. It's considered a duplex, but more like a house with in law quarters..I have my mom living with me on the same property. She's been sick and it's easier for me to take care of her if she is closer. We never lived too far away since I've been in NV but it was still hard. Now we are very close...and after a few trips to the ER that scared the shit out of me due to her health....when I am not at work, I'm usually close by in case she needs anything. I also have some damn good neighbors and friends that look out for her..

I cook.
I clean.
I do laundry.
I bought her a new SUV.
I take care of her cat.
I plant flowers, bushes & plants for her to sit outside and enjoy. The weather has been great.
When she wants to have company, I take care of making the meals.

So, I never thought at 43 years old my mom would be living with me, but she is....my dad was supposed to live forever. My mom just turned 70.

I do still have my own life. But the illness my mom has wears her out by just doing the simple tasks...so I do all I can do and have put some of my own health issues on hold.

So am I hard to live with? I don't really thing so. I know a lot of girls with multiple children that talk about me being a "good catch" but they don't have the right net....

The author of this thread knows me, and can verify that I am the real deal....I turned mistakes in my past to a pretty darn good life....

:D

I've had women tell me "I could never live with you"

I usually say something like "then get your shit and go" and this usually includes their kid(s)...they like to slowly bring stuff over...next thing I know I finding shampoo, clothes, ear rings, etc, around the house and bathroom...

Nothing upsets a new girl more then her taking her ear rings out to find another pair already sitting there on the nightstand....:eek::D

I haven't had a roommate in over 20 years, and the last one was my cousin, who needed a place to stay for a little while. I have my ways, after being on my own for so long.


My dog seems to think I'm easy to live with. My nieces and nephew all seem to like staying at my house. One of my coworker's kids is always asking when she can come back over to my house.

LOL! That's the crux of the matter, isn't? My girlfriends are all impressed with the home improvement stuff Mr. Snaps does and they wish their husbands were as ambitious. Little do they know what my "secret" is: I simply suggest that [name the project] would be nice, offer my own donkey work abilities if the project ever gets off the ground, and then shut up. I don't nag, micromanage, or supervise and I only offer suggestions when I'm asked.

This works out beautifully.

On the other hand, I never ask him to do something for me that will require a great deal of supervision or that needs a non-male level of pickiness to complete. Wash the dishes with the pressure-washer, for all I care but stay away from the sewing room. :D

If you aren't in a room, TURN THE LIGHTS OFF!

Same goes for television, if you are leaving for anything longer than a potty break.

I need open windows if the outside temperature is anywhere from 55-85 degrees. I hate stuffy, overheated, or over air conditioned homes.

I recently acquired a roommate who was on the verge of homelessness. She has a tough time adapting to my rules, but thankfully she is respectful. (her bedroom is soooo stuffy with all of the windows closed).

Oh, and no nagging allowed.

Just... help me clean, be clear, and keep the liquor cabinet stocked. :D

My goodness!

Should have read this thread sooner. 'Tis getting quite interesting! Is it not? :eek:

Came in to give my two cents worth ... but would rather comment on Rob for now.

Rob, darlin' man, you are a wonderful catch for the right woman.

You *can* do two things at once. Keep being the caring son that you are, and have a relationship with a woman that has your same or similar to ... values. She would even be likely to be willing to help you out with your mom.

Look out for the "sharks" out there trying to snag a husband, the gold-diggers, the "needy" types, the "queenly-needing-to-be-kept-on-a-pedestal-ones, the ones with too much past baggage, and also, the good-looking-but-hair-brained ones!

Quite a mouthful, I know, but all come with a big warning sign ... Keep Off!

Don't know if you are a "church goer" or not. My father most definitely was NOT ... but he used to go to church socials simply to meet (mostly-decent) women ... no tee-totaller-he ... and found a few he had a lot in common with.

Enough of this ... am stepping down from my soap-box.

There will be a place for you in Heaven, sweet thing!

Love ~ Auntie Mame :)

Oh Mercy, Hawkgirl ... was not referring to the two of you and your joking around. Sorry about that! :o Oh, andguess that I really should have put a :) in after my :eek: in my original post.

I really *do* have a nephew, who was just taken to the cleaners, by a woman, with 2 grown-up, worthless lay about kids ... that had part-time jobs- did nothing around the house or yard ... that soon after they married, moved in with them ... and he finally had enough and left her. Ruined the relationship and his respect for her.

Totally rotten kids ... who came with the "package" but she didn't tell him.

And NO ... he had no idea I was going to say all that ... I don't even know Rob, to my knowledge, he has never even communicated with me in here.

Sorry, no offence meant! Was almost word for word what I ended up telling my nephew.

With the divorce rate being 50%, I have no doubt that stuff like that happens all the time.

I already have a significant other. She's an almost-two year old named Elizabeth. Men, bleh! My life was fulfilled the day she was born.:)
