It’s wrong to date a guy strictly because he is handy right? I met this guy Barry through a mutual friend. After one date I realized that he was a dud. Barry is super boring, but really nice and most importantly handy. The date that I was going to determine to be our last, my furnace started making weird sounds. My date immediately went over to the heating system and got to work. He deduced that my furnace blower belt needed to be replaced. He located this heater part, took it out and then found the part at my local hardware store. Barry bought and installed that new heater part in under an hour. It was super impressive and by far the coolest thing he had ever done in my presence. When I offered to pay him for the part, heater repair and his time, he told me not to worry about it. After that performance, I gave him another chance to be more exciting. Nope, Barry is still a total bore but I have gotten a lot of use out of his skill set. I have gotten my whole furnace cleaned out by him on a date. I got him to come over to install a humidifier with my heating system too. I get all this work for free and done the proper way. I make him a meal, listen to his boring small talk and then enjoy a better working heater. So, not exactly ethical of me. But, I don’t think anyone can really blame me for doing this.
