    Hi All

    Tried to add my details to the welcome Dad section, but won’t accept.

    Do us guys know how much empathy a woman really requires or expects?

    I don’t seem to offer enough, but get no time to myself, except when in my car going to and from work. When I get home I entertain the kids so my fiancée can finish dinner. Get them ready for bed etc. Deal with them during the night and feed them both in the morning.

    I work for myself so luckily I am flexible so can do the hospital runs when required, take days off and run the eldest to and from nursery. If I worked for someone I would be restricted by work hours. House jobs don’t get done because I am expected to help look after the kids all hours during the weekends.

    How do others fair?

    The amount of empathy anyone requires is entirely bespoke.

    From your post, it sounds like what you need is to open really good communication channels with your Fiance.

    Have you told her how you feel, really? Have you sat down with her and told her how it affects you?
