I was just thinking about how lucky I am that this dude still likes me. Not saying I’m not awesome, but I’m also kind of a mess sometimes. I leave a trail of coffee mugs in my wake, which drives my neat nick FI nuts. I’m also pretty much as productive as a squirrel on crack without my Ritalin. If he asks if I want a snack, I say no and then steal half of his, and that has got to be annoying. I burp like a trucker, shamelessly, and have nearly killed us both by farting while he was driving. And yet he wants to spend the rest of his life by my side.
So what are your little quirks that should have your SO running for the hills?

xstitchbride425: Hmmm…well today, he tolerated my need to have chicken nuggets and potato Smiles for dinner. He also puts up with my addiction to strange underwear, like the panties I just got today that have glow in the dark planets on the bum. And he puts up with my icy cold feet managing to find him every night (he’s just so warm!). 🙂

gillykat824: lol I give him cold feet too. I have underwear that has a cat face and ears, but, being a dude, he’d be happy to see me in them because, hey, that’s a girl without pants.

I am a control freak, I have to be warm all the time, and I can be super sensitive. It drives him crazy but he loves me deeply nontheless.

I try to join in on his gaming conversations with things I have heard him say when I don’t know what they mean. “Install your turbo shield, elves. The dragon is coming!!” “Battle stations. There’s a rogue goblin terrorising the villagers!”

Well I eat and spend money like there’s no tomorrow and we will probably need a whole extra room in our future home just to house my collection of books! My mood swings can be crazy sometimes, even though I am on meds, I am terrible at saving and I am an unemployed student! I definitely feel the ‘why is he with me?!’ sometimes.

xstitchbride425: I’m spoiled as hell. He gives me the better/newer of whatever we have. He puts up with my complaining, my inability to manage money, my scatter brain, the fact that I LOATHE folding laundry (he has to hunt everyday for clean socks lol) and my ability to destroy a clean room in 2.7 seconds.
He tells me he gladly puts up with all of it because I can cook. 🙂 That, and he thinks I’m the best mom he could’ve picked for our kids and animals. Plus, he loves me.
I’d have to say, I am definitely the lucky one in this relationship!

I have a habit of misplacing things and then blaming it on him. I eat all the cookies before he gets a chance to have one. I make a mess in the bathroom with all my beauty supplies, I also spend a good half hour in there every night picking at my face.

I love this category/thread, BTW!
I am lucky, because my FI puts up with my neuroticism (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), my obsession with running — I am a distance runner, and he comes to almost all my races even when he doesn’t run the races (he won’t run anything father than a half marathon and he hates those too, lol. Tomorrow he is driving me to a marathon and cheering for me in the rain… Also, he does all the cooking. I have massive amounts of student loans, and he has NO debt, and I am a crazy sports fan and scream bloody murder during my team’s football games…
I honestly don’t know why he puts up with me, but I am glad nonetheless! He’s the most patient, kind person I know!

FI is ok with my lax climate control in the house and actually had a similar approach when he was living alone. We have AC and heating, but I wait as long as I can to turn them on so that I don’t have to spend too much extra money on it. As a result, there is a lot of bundling up or stripping down. We’re such a good match!

I can’t be bothered with cooking, so my idea of dinner is a college student’s idea: pasta? Sure. Don’t have sauce? Oh well. A spoonful of peanut butter? A banana? Yogurt? Crackers? Just eat random foods that available until you’re full. If it weren’t for him, I’d never eat balanced meals! (To be fair to myself, though, we’ve agreed that he’ll do the cooking and I’ll do the cleaning/laundry because as much I as am apathetic toward cooking, I looooove cleaning and doing laundry, so that works out really well for us. But still.)

I’m super luck, my poor fella has issues sleeping, he wakes up lots throughout the night. So to make matters worse he puts up with me sleepwalking, talking, etc. Nearly every night i have a bit of an adventure. The poor bloke has seen me try to climb out of windows, drop a tv on my face, scream, shout. And hes so sweet about it all, he helps me calm down and puts me back to bed. I’m honestly amazed he puts up with sleeping next to a crazy lady! Poor him!

I cry on a regular basis. Not always because I’m sad. Sometimes there’s a nice commerical on TV that makes me cry. Sometimes there’s a happy ending. Sometimes it’s Wednesday.
Also, I shed more hair than our animals.
I don’t know how he puts up with me :/
wanttobee: Your post made me laugh. Poor guy must be freaking out every time you wake up! Lol

I laugh during sex…not at him, but it tickles when he touches me there for the first time.

I’m quite high maintenanc, which I disclosed early on. Dh puts up with a lot. I’m on a perma diet, so I don’t cook & he fends for himself just fine. I can’t clean because of a spine proble, I loathe housework anyway. I’m on a bunch of meds for severe depression & GAD, which he assembles for me.
He goes to the store for me, helps out a lot with the puppy. He does way more than his fair share.
Then there’s my Botox & Juvederm & high maintenance hair.
I’m in career transition so my income isn’t all that helpful right now.
Good grief. Why does he put up with me?
