I was just looking at a beautiful recap, and one of the photos reminded me of my DH’s reaction to some of our wedding photos as well as a close friend of mine. I had a picture of my dress hanging up, and he really didn’t understand why I needed that, and when we werere looking at my friend’s stunning sneakpeaks – she had a photo of her dress hanging from a tree in her garden. DH totally freaked out – said it was beyond creepy and stuff of horror movies.
Other (non-wedding releated) things he doesn’t understand are:
1. Why on earth would ANYONE (i.e. me) get up and hour earlier just to style my hair. FYI it’s really hot here and I have thick hair, if I make lots of mini french plaits my head sweats less, so to get for work at 9am I wake up at 7:30…
2. Why do I need to watch a movie that makes me cry? Why is it I willingly make myself sad?
3. Novels which are not A. Factual/History books or B. “Proper Literature”. Dan Brown, Jodi Picoult, Cecilia Ahern, Jackie Collins etc etc is just crap in his eyes. HE can’t understand how I get so into books and enjoy them so much unless there’s a point to them.
Is your DH, FI often left perplexed at girl things?

FI doesn’t understand why we need an ITINERARY for the day of the wedding! Like, duh! He thinks that everything will just fall into place. Meanwhile, I’m losing my mind because I need to coordinate with the photographer, limo driver, florist etc. and I need him to just make a plan as to where he’s going to be at 2pm! He also doesn’t understand photography stuff. I keep telling him that the photgrapher is going to meet him to take some pictures of him getting ready and stuff, and he’s all like “what?? I’m not going to get dressed in front of a strange woman!” Lol. Yes honey, we only want pictures of you in your tightie-whities.

@Cariad: Yep! I there’s a lot of odd things about me he doesn’t get, but I think they intrigue him and he accepts them. I will never forget the look on his face when he first saw me watching Sailor Moon before we were dating. I ended up getting him to watch the entire last season with me (I thought it was the most exciting so I had a good chance) and he got into anime because of it! I guess there’s always a common ground somewhere!

He dosn’t understand that, after working 10 hours and having worked with animals all day, why I don’t want to go out. Especially, without taking a shower.
“Just change and brush your hair.”

Don’t worry, there are things about men we don’t get either! But I must say, why is he so perplexed about these things? They are pretty common womanly traits! For every minute men need to get ready, we need an extra 10 minutes. For every sad movie we watch, they’ve seen 10 more really bad action movies filled with boobs and bombs. And if all we ever read were history books, then there wouldn’t be much imagination going on. Here’s to you for still loving him!

FI can’t understand the difference between things I wear so if i say ‘which do you prefer, the short blue dress or the long red one’…he’s like ‘they look the same’.

My Dad doesn’t get why my Mom needs a new outfit (dress, matching shoes, jewelry) for my wedding. We had to prep him for the shock months before we even went shopping for her Mother of the Bride dress!

He is mystified by all things cosmetic (what is that black stuff you guys put on your lashes? what’s that metal thing you’re putting in your eye??? lol)
He doesn’t understand why I need more than one pair of black heels, although he appreciates how I look in heels.
He once ended up playing Bejeweled Blitz on my FB acct by accident (just to see what all the fuss was about) and ended up with the lowest score in history. He couldn’t understand why I had to immediately rush downstairs and play myself to get a good score so I wouldn’t be at the bottom of my leader board
then again . . .I don’t understand his obsession with all things technological

FI was scared of my eyelash curler, you would have thought he thought it was some sort of toture device when he saw me using it for the first time.

I don’t understand the whole Dan Brown, Jodi Picoult, etc thing either…I think that has to do with your preference for literature rather than the fact that you’re a woman.

my boy gets frustrated with my need to try on everything in my wardrobe before a night out. He gets even more frustrated when I’m running about squealing I’ve got nothing to wear :p
As far as the wedding goes we’re both involved and so far we haven’t bumped heads – no doubt that will come nearer the time LOL

Please, please PLEASE do NOT get me started on the importance of time management. I will smother him in his sleep if you do.

@Cariad: LOL my DH also doesn’t get the hanging dress picture thing … or the shoes picture. Though to be fair, I wasn’t really the world’s biggest fan of the hanging dress picture, so as a compromise I got this one here. 🙂
