@msaperry:  my SO is an epic kite surfer. Like seriously amazing. I fail at the simpilist of sports  let alone this extreme one that he rocks at. I wish I could be “on par” with that, but cant. Differences are what keep it interesting i guess?

music choice, he likes country i like rock and roll haha. 

and religion, i am somewhat religious and he hasnt been to a church in over 15 years. but neither of us forces our beliefs on the other and if kids come into play he agreed that he would attend church if i wanted to raise them in a church. so it works for us.

A major thing FI and I don’t have in common is that I’m a planner and he is not. This makes for many interesting debates and situations in our house 😉

@Skittles131:  Amen! Same here. I’m a planner, who likes to know what I’m going to be doing the next day and SO is a “wing it” dude. Drives me NUTS!!!

FH is very easygoing, and I like to have plans and control over situations. I actually like that about him because he relaxes me! 

He’s also really into sports, and checks scores/rumors/etc periodically throughout the day, but it doesn’t interfere with our relationship at all so it doesn’t bother me–I think it’s cute.

@nearlymarriedlass:  that took me a few minutes to realize you didn’t mean the fish… 🙂 

I wish my husband was more into sports.. I’m big into football (soccer) and he has zero interest in it.

My fiancé really enjoys watching sport especially football. I will watch some sporting events with him but that’s mainly because I want to spend time with HIM. I enjoy the theatre and Im trying to persuade him to take my attitude towards sport towards the theatre..at least once a year!

He enjoys watching action/gore, while I cannot handle any kind of gore. I would actually shriek because fake blood looks so real to me. (Cursed vivid imagination) He respects though. “Close your eyes, Cynderbug, for this part. You won’t want to watch it!” So, he watches gory movies mostly with his guy friends or by himself.

I don’t think I would wish to watch overly scary movies nor gory movies. I mean, Paranormal Activity 3 wasn’t meant to be scary — but the scene where the lady jumps out of the closet, I let a blood-curling shriek that scared everyone in the theatre. So, it’s really pathetic that my jumpiness scared people; not the movie. (‘That girl behind me who screamed scared the s&*% out of me!’ was what I heard when I was in the ladies’ restroom)

Music; I love metal/hardcore, and my FI likes indie/alternative. Drives me nuts sometimes.

DH looooves cars. He spends most of his free time either working on making his car faster, researching how to make it faster, watching car videos on youtube, getting on his message boards online talking to other guys around the world about cars, or out racing his car with his fellow car lover buddies. When he talks about cars, his eyes light up. Sports cars are definitely a passion of his and he constantly tries to teach me about them, but I have no interest in learning. I try to listen to make him happy, but I often get lost. Undecided His love for cars is how I chose my user name on here lol.

My SO loooooves to cook. He will make things I can’t even pronounce just for fun. He especially loves fancy things, where I would be content with just 2 minute noodles or something. Its quite handy though, considering the most involved meal I can make is pasta.

@msaperry:  After reading the title of your post before I even clicked on it, I immediately thought “baseball”.  After clicking on it, I see you can relate on the sports issue! 🙂 I love sports, but not like my fiancé does.  He works for a Major League Baseball team and has a passion for baseball that is unyielding.  When he does his endless score checking and update watching, I can’t complain much because he’s technically working.  I thank God my fiancé is blessed with an amazing career that he loves, so I try to be patient, but on occasion I have to just say no to ESPN.
