During my last visit to his house, my FI and I were watching a rerun of "Beauty and the Geek". This one "Geek" reached his nerdy status by owning 15000 comic books.
I laughed & said "What grown man has that many comic books?" My fiance slipped away into his office and came out with 2 of 12 long white boxes. My jaw dropped to the floor! HE IS A SECRET COMIC BOOK NERD. He has over 2500 comic books in little plastic covers. I sat there in utter shock that after 3 years, I never knew! lol
He claims he’s "saving them for his son" but when I touched one he snatched it back & said I was wrecking it. ha!
Does your FI have a secret collection (porn doesn’t count! lol)? Or secret habit?

not nerdy but he def didnt tell me. in a previous life my FI…opps, HUBBY (gotta get use to that!) was a photographer for ummm, gentlemens magazines and while tearing apart the bookshelves to make room for my stuff i discovered dozens of volumes of pictures of naked ladies or ladies wearing very very little.
these have been sent to the garage for storage 🙂

Wow. I can’t wait to find out what T is secretly doing/done. I did find out about what happened in the basement parties at the KA house though. I also know their secret handshake! (and he knows mine too!)

No idea if hubby is hiding anything from me, but he does own a shoebox of comic books that he has yelled at me for touching once lol He reads them on occasion. Your discovery made me giggle though :p

My FI is a huge Trekkie!!! I found this secret out early on in our relationship but it’s something he rather I not share with friends. Ooops!
Hahaha, the secret was discovered while he was showing off a closet full of old hockey jerseys. He didn’t realize his costume from when he was 10 was hanging in the same closet.

I love to dance. FH doesn’t. Who knew I’d end up with a non-dancer? Anyway, we’d been together a few years, and I was well aware of his no dancing policy when it emerged…he’d actually taken tap dancing lessons as a kid! His dad wanted him to be Fred Astaire or something. I really want him to take lessons for the wedding – maybe those tap lessons will all come flooding back?

FI and are both pretty nerdy. I don’t make fun of him for being a Trekkie, he doesn’t make fun of me for having gone to Lord of the Rings conventions. 🙂

SO has every D&D book that ever came out, it’s awful, lol- he collects comics too, but he keeps them in his computer room at the house, so as long as they aren’t lying around, I don’t care- I <3 nerds, hehe. I used to build pcs, so I was one at one point too

LOL I love this post! Mine collected baseball cards (uhm..er…and he MAY or MAY NOT have collected Magic cards at one point…) but I knew about that early on. I swear we’re not weirdos who sit around and play Magic cards
Do you guys remember POGS?!?! One of my friends fiancees collected those…She found them and was like WTF are THESE?!

Look at those transformers!!
Mine has a ton of Star Wars books. I don’t think it’s a big deal, but I consider his secret because we’d been together something like 6 or 8 months when he got all embarrased about it and showed me the secret bookcase full of them in the closet!

@KellyV – I think my fiance WISHES he still had his pog collection, he has referenced it a number of times, including this past weekend when I was punching out 2" circles and he said ‘OOH what are those? Wedding pogs??’…..um, not quite hun-

These are funny! My husband has a baseball card collection from his childhood. When his parents were remodeling their basement, they said they were going to drop off the baseball cards at our place for storage. I assumed it would be maybe a couple of shoe boxes worth–how many baseball cards does one boy need? Boy, was I wrong. They brought 3 HUGE Rubbermaid tubs, you know the size that you’d put an artificial Christmas tree in! I was horrified. He keeps saying he needs to go through them and decide what he’s keeping/selling/giving away. Right now, they’re taking up ALL the room in our storage unit. Grr.

That’s actually pretty cool and kind of sweet that he saved them, but maybe I’m weird… lol. Your son will be like … LOL.
Those transformers … OMG. It reminds me of 40 Year Old Virgin … didn’t he collect action figures. Haha.
Um, I have nothing surprising to say about Fiance. I on the other hand have like boxes and boxes of Barbie dolls that my mom may or may not have anymore. Lol. I had like every single Barbie, playhouse, and car! My little sister than played with them … so who knows where they are now.
