Hate to dispel your sexist stereotypes, boiler, but I really am quite self sufficient. I have built several houses, have sewn my own clothes, work on my car/bikes/motorcycle, and am a pretty good cook, with a fair knowledge of where to get the best spices/produce/groceries in town. I also do most of the laundry.
My girlfriend is quite the same: last summer, she designed/built a new gate for the backyard fence, built a new set of wheels for her bicycle, and replumbed the basement bathroom. She claims to be a better cook than me. Maybe with soups.
Try reading "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" sometime.
