I liked tall, he’s 5’8.
I liked dark hair, he’s blond
I liked tanned, he’s fair skinned
I liked hairless, he’s hairy
I like artsy/musicians, he’s a nerdy computer guy/sports jock
But… Very glad I was open to look further than “my type” cause there’s nothing I’d change about him, inside or out! HE is my type.

Nope! I was all about the dark brown hair, and his is dark blonde. Never expected that, but so glad that I gave him a chance anyway. 😛

Not my type in the slightest… but totally, totally perfect for me. Thank god I was willing to step outside my “type”. He really was one of the first white guys I’ve ever dated, so that was kind of a shock, but it all worked out!

Ditto – not even close! But just like egb, I wouldn’t change a thing. He is perfect for me, and he is my heart.

Looks-wise, totally! But I always thought I’d end up with a scruffy anti-establishment hippy type. My guy is a corporate accountant who not only works for The Man, but hopes to be The Man some day. Sigh. Good thing he’s cute…. hehe

Fiance redefined what I like 😉

I used to think he wasn’t but when think back to the person I thought I wanted my husband to be when I was a little girl… he is EVERYTHING I wanted in a husband!!!!
So I guess so! He is just VERY different from the wrong guys I dated!

Different from all the wrong guys; how did those become “our type”??? I didn’t see that happen!

He’s 99 % my type 🙂 Blonde hair, blue eyes, cute dimple lol. Plus he’s exactly like me in so many ways that I think are really important for us to work in the long run, but I guess I could say no in the sense that I never figured I’d be a future military wife lol. Even though it wasn’t what I pictured my future to be like, I wouldn’t change a thing as he’s the only person who truly gets me and makes me so happy 🙂

well yes and no. lol i would notice the preppy dressed guy with scruffy hair but tended to date the nerdy skinny guy. FI is def in the nerdy skinny department…and like you said, “HE is my type.” he makes me happy 🙂

I didn’t have a really specific type but I do like them tall and gangly! My husband fits that!

He’s somewhat my type and somewhat not.
By looks he’s my type.
But there was a lot on my part (maybe a bit of reverse snobbery) that I really didn’t think I’d ever be with. Ex. he was a frat boy, didn’t think I’d marry one of those.

I don’t know what my type was, other than musician-esque, and my partner is a full-time artist, so that worked out! 🙂

I wanted a funny, compassionate, athletic, ambitous person who shared my vision for a happy life. I literally found the man of my dreams. 🙂

i love to LOOK at heavily tattooed boys with piercings, rooster hair, and skinny jeans. the rockstar/artist type, i would say.
but the man i am in love with is a clean-cut neuroscientist who likes to play videogames.
turned out fine and dandy because we’re both nerds – and i communicate much better with the nerds!
