I wish he wouldn’t leave his clothes all over the floor! He leaves them on the floor and most of the time they’re clean, he just doesn’t put them away! Ack! Lol.

He has the worse memory, which has led to me being in charge of the bills…..another thing I would change in our relationship is our spending habits—we tend to be frivilous with our money and really should focus on budgeting and saving!

the tidiness of our home is nowhere to be found on my guy’s radar. and because this just happened this morning, he also has the habit of leaving a completely empty cereal box on the counter.

FI has horrible sinuses – has had them all his life – so he’s constantly having to blow his nose and he leaves his goddamn dirty tissues everywhere. He also has practically no sense of smell so he can’t really tell when a shower is in order and I have to basically be like you stink, take a f**king shower like he’s a small child. Also, he snores sometimes because of the sinus problems. I asked gently once if he would contemplate having the surgery but he doesn’t want to for whatever reason so c’est la vie, right? He does the dishes and cooks for me so, like, I guess I’ll suck it up.

I wish that we liked each others’ friends better. It really sucks that we almost never go out as a couple with other people… we hang out together, or we hang out separately with our friends. I don’t dislike his friends but none of them have girlfriends around here so its not like I can hang out with the boys. And my FI doesn’t like my friends (mostly) because he thinks they drink too much (he doesn’t drink at all, so really not fun for him). Which is true– my friends mostly are into drinking parties/games. I wish that my friends did stuff other than drinking, but they don’t and I love them so if thats how they choose to spend their time then its what I need to do. Its just hard that we’re the first of either of our friends to get married or buy a house (or even really find someone we want to be with long term).

I am **really** hoping that this problem will work itself out in the future when our friends grow up a little, find people, get married, have kids, etc and/or when we make some more couple friends that are a bit more “where we are.”

I hate our work schedules.  I work a typical 9-5 job at a biopharmaceutical company and he works in the same industry but does shift work (2nd shift) so his hours are 2:30 pm to 1 am.  Three days a week we only get about an hour, maybe hour and a half, to spend with each other where we are both coherent.  Plus he stays up until like 3 or 4 am when he does get home so I miss his presence in bed next to me.  What bothers me most is that he thinks this is ok, but I wish we had more time…

He would shower as soon as he gets home. He is a mechanic, and gets dirt stuff EVERYWHERE!!!!!! Also, he would put his clothes away at  night when he goes to bed.

I’d like FI to be more confident and outgoing. He actually used to be super-outgoing before we started dating, but it’s like I’ve unconsciously made him more antisocial or something.

I think mostly I’d just wish he had a better job. He’d be less grumpy and happier with life if he did, and I’d be happier because then he’d consider having kids in the near future. Also, I wish that he wouldn’t have to much fun annoying me (he really does annoy me on purpose because he thinks it’s fun…) sometimes isn’t so bad, but some days I just dont feel like it.

I wish that Mr. Library wasn’t as socially awkward as he is sometimes.  He has a hard time approaching new people and suffers a little from low self-confidence, and I wish I could fix that for him.

I wish my guy was more keen on the housework.  Dude, the dishwasher is like 2 seconds from where you placed your bowl on the counter.  PUT IT IN!
