    This thread is going to be as much for you single guys out there (possibly more so) as it is for the already domesticated amongst us. The reason being is some single guys might be interested to know just what you are willing to do around the house if you were in a relationship or, for that matter, just wanted to have a roommate.

    The reason why I have called this thread the domestication of the feral gay man is because, when I met my present mate, I had already gone wild. This was true in more ways than I want to write about here, however, the topic is how I had allowed the domestic duties around my apartment at the time to go completely slack and that after we met I was hurriedly adapted to doing my share of the chores around the house.

    I was pissing and moaning today about having to do some chores around the house. I am much better at being a beach bum these days than devoting my hard-earned retirement time doing domestic duties. Anyway, I got to thinking while slaving away, I wonder what the other guys on RealJock do or are willing to do domestically or are you lucky enough to have a maid, cook, gardener and all around fixer-upper.

    Here is how we share out domestic duties:
    I cook breakfast, lunch or sometimes brunch and he cooks dinner (he being a much better cook than I) and we each clean up after our cooked meals.
    I clean the passage way, terrace and mirador (flat roof) and he cleans the inside of the house.
    I do ironing and he does the wash.
    I spot clean the car inside and out and he cleans the car when we go out to a self-wash.
    I clean the windows and he cleans the bath and shower.
    I do all the odd jobs like painting and fixing things when they get broke and he handles all the problems with paperwork and telephoning like renewing our residencias here in Spain.
    I do the monthly budget, banking and taxes and handle other problems with money and he does most of the shopping. I hate shopping. I would do all the jobs above if I could just get out of shopping but do not tell him that.

    - I do the Finances, split laundry 50-50, do more of the cleaning of the kitchen, and dust the bedroom. He does more of the vacuuming, cooking and washing of floors and bathrooms.

    We each are responsible for our ironing (I don't iron, I buy mixed blend shirts).

    Getting my partner to do chores is like pulling teeth sometimes, so I just do it so I can have some order in all of the chaos without all of the whining.

    Occasionally, I have a friend of mine come over to help me when things get out of hand and trade massage for housekeeping.

    One day I hope to have enough money saved up to have a house boy who will wear nothing but a thong. I have to do something until I get my partner trained right.

    Ewwwwww. :-P

    I'm a loner. Single and live alone, so I do everything by myself. And, because I can not stand a mess, I'm already quite domesticated. I'm going to make someone a nice housewife someday if I do say so myself.

    I like being feral, me and my Chihuahua Taco. Taco doesn't do any housework, I do it all. Taco cuddles up next to me when I'm sick and licks my face. That's the only time he does that. If I'm feeling a little ill and Taco cuddles up next to me, I know I'm in for a ride. The little shit is a seems to know.

    OMG. I do all the domestic stuff. One of my BF's, the one i live with, has always something else to do. I will have written on his tombstone. "Procrastinator!" Having a high IQ, is no excuse to be feral.

    I do all the washing, hate putting it away. I iron all my shirts.

    He gets cotton blend. straight out of dryer, and onto hanger. Nothing is put on a close line, as we don't have one, and I don't want one. Such ugly things.

    We have 3 bathrooms. I clean them all.

    I do all the cooking, and cleaning up. Yet he pays the bill, if we eat out.

    I am going to have today off, and my day is full of domestic jobs.

    I have already been to gym, he is still in bed.

    I do most of the hard labour outside. But he being a mathematical genius, does all the paving, and stuff, as he is spot on with the levels. Pulse he is an engineer.

    One is not a prissy clean freak. But i hate living in a mess too. I would rather be outside, doing yard work. But am working on getting a housekeeper.

    If we had not of turned two bedrooms into home officers, and put a wall in one, and not have it as a private upstairs sitting room. Our house would of had 7 bedrooms. So a lot of floor space to clezan, and furniture to move too, when cleaning.

    Our biggest disagreements come from his, disrespect of other peoples time. He will take his time, but expect others to be ready when he is. He is always late, or leaving at the last minute. This drives me nuts, as I am always on time.

    Oh I have also worked in Childcare. So One is able to take care of child too.

    As long as I shit on the newspaper instead of the carpet, there's peace in our home.

    We break things up fairly even. He cooks and cleans the kitchen, I clean the bathroom and do all the laundry. We split cleaning the other rooms. We each take care of our own cars. He does most of the finances, I mow the lawns.

    Because I'm 24. Now's the time to be a loner--outside of the night time hours that is. icon_twisted.gif

    I usually wear pull-overs, which for some reason do not need ironing. Does that mean they are mixed-blend? Most of his shirts are the long-sleeve dress shirt type, some with the silly fruit loop thing in the back. Those always come out of the dryer looking like he slept in them. Consequently, icon_evil.gif.

    Mmmmm. I like that idea a lot. Just, where did you snag that ad? I wonder if that one in the pic needs be shown how to get that wrinkle out?

    I'm domesticated. I do the budget and bills. I do the outside yardwork, but share responsibility for the weeding and flower care. I wear dress shirts and some slacks that I must iron. I clean animal cages, vacuum, clean showers, mop floors, do dishes. I only do about 1/5 of the laundry. I am the repairman and painter. If a car gets cleaned, it was me. If the refrigerator gets cleaned, it was me.
    I manage the clutter - if its in a plastic container or labeled - that was my doing.
    I also have the superpower of 'being able to throw shit away'. Seems to be a rarity in my house. (The kids are still young - I'll excuse them.)

    BTW, I'm divorcing. If I'm going to do this much housework, its going to be for a stud. icon_wink.gif

    I am feral. I don't know how to do my laundry without a washing machine, and even then I have problems. I can't cook. I dislike cleaning (since dust triggers asthma), and I hate shopping.

    I want to be a houseboy.


    Then I'll write a book about it and sell the rights to Disney.
