Just checking to see if there are any other stay at home dads here? I was told this is a parenting site and not a women's only place so I'm just tryig my luck with finding like-minded individuals.

There's a section for dad's, it's in Other Stuff, Dadsnet. not that you aren't welcome here of course,just you may find more blokes over at that end grin we're mostly all a friendly bunch though

Thanks for replying and glad that I am welcome here (kind of). checking that place out now.

No need to think everyone is female, there are lots of men and dads here, you just can't tell from the usernames! They just generally post wherever as I think the dadsnet section can be a bit quiet sometimes. Welcome!

Several great blokes absolute stalwarts in main threads - look out for people like NannyNick and PigletJohn, as well as BetaDad.

You are very welcome. You don't have to be a mum or even be female to be a member.

Great another announcer. It's not a woman only site but we out number you ten fold wink

I'm glitteryarse and I'm woman. Do you only want SAHD to reply to you though? If so your prob best off in the dads section ..

There are quite a few men here, they just mostly get on with having friendly discussion and don't feel the need to announce that -

'BEHOLD, WOMEN! I am a man, and I am here.'

Welcome Chris!

(Woman here)

It's mostly women but if you have questions about children, parenting, mobile phones, good films etc - makes little difference! I'd ask things on whatever board seems best - Dadsnet isn't much frequented though maybe you could be the one to change that grin

BetaDad is MoreBeta these days, unless he's changed again post hack.

There is also a SHAP board, on the rare occasion my other half looks on here thats the board he looks at although I'm not sure he posts.

chris71 Sat 22-Aug-15 08:43:03

Wow, okay thanks for replying. I was just thinking about meeting SAHPs really and I see loads of them. I already feel welcome.

chris71 Sat 22-Aug-15 09:28:17
