because it gives me more things to worry about

I say its good to talk about hypothetical situations
he thinks it makes me worry about things that won't happen

BTW this is light hearted

Obviously, he is BVU!

Bluecarrot Sat 19-Oct-13 17:36:18

I dont need to hear his "reasons" LTB grin

cleopatrasasp Sat 19-Oct-13 17:38:56

LTB!

Beastofburden Sat 19-Oct-13 17:45:53

I don't tell my DH. Simples.

PerpendicularVincentPrice Sat 19-Oct-13 17:46:59

My DH says exactly the same! I don't want to LTB though because he's lovely grin.

DP went through a little phase of commenting on how much time I spent on here, but I've got so much reassurance during this pregnancy that if I have any little worry about ANYTHING he now says I should ask 'my mumsnet' smile
So yes your DH is BU, but it could change, so maybe don't LTB just yet?

Same here - he thinks i'm bonkers!

fluffyraggies Sat 19-Oct-13 17:55:17

My DH isn't concerned about MN, but sometimes i absolutely should should step away!

''This week i have been mostly'' raising my blood pressure over:

baby swaddling
racism
underage porn
longer school days
music videos
unfaithful husbands and
baby food in jars.

Oh and weather or not i'm going to get piles grin

My DH is always telling me to "ask mumsnet" when I'm wondering about Preggo related things. I was telling him I plan on having pate on toast for breakfast on Christmas Day as I'm sure one little bit won't do any harm and he told me I needed to ask mumsnet first! Lol!

JesusInTheCabbageVan Sat 19-Oct-13 17:56:43

When my DH pisses me off, I threaten to tell Mumsnet about him grin

Bowlersarm Sat 19-Oct-13 18:00:41

I know I need to ease back a bit. It's become a bit of an addiction recently. I don't use it for anything useful either, just think everyone needs the benefit of my opinion grin

Is it making you worry?

Because tbh I'm quite glad mn wasn't here when ds1 was little, because some of the threads on here are very judgemental and/or dismissive, and I think I might have got my knickers in quite a twist desperately trying and failing to do everything right.

Mumsnet is fantastic resource if you can take the good bits and ignore some of the angst. If you can't, and it is making you worry unnecessarily, then he might have a point.

But only you can answer that.

It does bother me a bit that you feel you have to add "lighthearted" as it seems you might get upset if anyone takes the thread the wrong way confused

KittyShcherbatskaya Sat 19-Oct-13 21:09:58

My DH went off Mumsnet for a while after he told me to ask for view on something we disagreed about, and 134 people told him he was BU grin He has come round to you all since. And we did it my way.

dh now checks mn for himself (particularly the bake off threads).

I have no worries grin

My DH doesn't like me Mning and seems to find it quite threatening.

Recently I took issue with him getting our 10 year old DD photographed with him, his precious classic car and a couple of girls pouting and sticking their tits and arses out like page three models.

He didn't see what my problem was (despite the fact that I've always take issue with the way the motor trade still thinks it's OK to portray women) and told me that I'm only bothered because "all the feminists on MN" tell me to think that way. Boy did he bite off more than he could chew that time angry

I now just don't tell him I'm doing it and clear the history on the laptop after particularly long sessions smile

superbagpuss Sat 19-Oct-13 22:46:47

I think with my dh its how worried I get about the relationship threads, it makes you wonder hmm

marriedinwhiteisback Sat 19-Oct-13 22:53:43

Don't tell him. I open the Daily Telegraph tab when mine walks into the room.

MsVestibule Sat 19-Oct-13 22:57:48

DH knows I'm a MN addict and has (at my request!) limited my hours so I can't access it from 10.30am-7.30pm grin.

When we're having a spat, I've sometimes said "AIBU to think that my DH is a right PITA?" which normally diffuses things. Out of interest, why do you get so worried about the relationship threads and why does it bother your DH that you're worried?

why would any decent DH suggest this! madness i tell you, madness! LTB

BrunelsBigHat Sat 19-Oct-13 23:03:47

My dh did feel bit threatened by it

He calls it mumsbollocks, and was convinced I was bitching about him.

I told him he wasn't tht fucking interesting and not to kid himself. And asked if thought he was the Internet Police.

I do admit to opening BBC news tab if he walks in the room, and deleting browser history after particularly marathon sessions.

He calmed down after that. Bit is still suspicious that I might have posted the entirety of our personal life to a bunch of strangers. I haven't.and I namechange every couple of months,or if I post something particularly identifying.

Bogeyface Sat 19-Oct-13 23:06:32

Does he ever say "dont borrow trouble"?

I prefer "plan for the worst, hope the best"!

Bogeyface Sat 19-Oct-13 23:06:47

for the...

wickeddevil Sat 19-Oct-13 23:08:05

Mine just rolls his eyes.

But I love it when he googles something random and google sends him here for the answer grin

HE is BVU - the nerve of the man.
My very first LTB - he's obviously a bad un with zero respect winkgrin
