Women Need to Date Carpenters Like Men Date Yoga Instructors
Heidi K. Isern

I know this article is about dating and not home improvement ability, but I have to say — if you can find a reasonably successful guy who is ALSO a part time carpenter/electrician/plumber/auto repairman/landscaper, you have hit a home run! I can’t even believe how I lucked into my husband! I didn’t even know he knew how to do all these things until we had our own house. I cringe when my neighbors can’t fix their own outlets or replace a board on a stairway, but I keep it to myself. Usually ;) My advice is this — just do what you do and somewhere along the way, you will find the one. But that 6' or taller criteria…. that one I agree with.
