@Bebealways:  haha yep my fiance does that too. Men just aren’t as good at connecting things. They dont see how point a gets to point b or that a and b are sometimes the same thing!

@Bebealways:  Ha ha ha, my FI is always like that, forget weddings. He does it with food too. And if he doesn’t even understand what I’m talking about he’ll give an opinion. I told him, how hard is it to say “I do not know what you’re talking about.” instead of saying “No” to something when you don’t even know what it is?

@Bebealways:  I am laughing so hard right now! He has a slight idea, decides in his head what it is and forms an opinion. Yup yup. Exactly. Then I think for the longest time thinking that he doesn’t like “X”. But one day I really want to eat/do “X”, so I go for it and say “Now, I know you said you don’t like “X”, but I really want to eat/do it”. After the fact he won’t understand why I thought he didn’t like “X”!!!!!!! BOYS! I decided to just stop asking him his opinion about most things, try it and decide if he really liked it or not on my own.

@Bebealways:  So … I think the question is “does your FH actually know the NAMES of things” 😛  It sounds like he knows what he likes but not what it’s called, lol.

Mine too!  He’s kind of okay with things he doesn’t like, and at least he embraces it.

This weekend’s example: he got his own suit custom-made, with a vest.  So I have no idea what the whole thing looks like.  We were watching an old episode of the Soup, and I said “does your suit look like THAT?” “No.”  Weird – every dress suit I’ve seen looked like that one.  “Well does it look like this one?” (a commercial had just come up, the vest comes up higher) “Nope.”  We are officially out of ways it can look.  I think he just doesn’t even know what he bought, lol.  We’ll find out soon enough!

My FI sort of knows what he likes. The bigger issue is that he lacks vision entirely! It is very hard for him to picture something in his head. He will always say “show me what you mean, I can’t picture it”. It’s hard for him to imagine hypotheticals (if this goes here and we add a little this and that and paint it this color…”). He just cannot add it up in his head.

@Bebealways: Ohhh – it’s like every decision about anything that my sister makes, regardless of any new evidence presented!  I get it.
