So we all have some things we both love and have a hard time loving about our SOs… Just for fun, let’s see what everyone shares! I’ll do 5 of each. (I’m kind of feeling like Ben Stiller on Along Came Polly, although I’m defintiely not comparing two people, lol!)
Here are mine:
Same life goals
Tons of shared hobbies
Mr. Fix It! 🙂
Can be a little critical and not open-minded at times
Sense of humor (think farting 13 year old)
He whines and complains about his job A LOT (I am praying for him a new one and hopefully this one will be crossed off the list!)
Likes to shake things off and I like to talk about them
Has a tendency to ignore some of my super-emotional needs (this is probably a Pro in reality, haha)

Thank you everyone for sharing! 🙂 So fun to see how differnt (or alike) men’s personalities can be. I am SO jealous of you women with “sense of humor” on the Pro list! LOL. He’s lucky his other amazing qualities outweigh that 10x.

- He’s got a really cute, goofy sense of humor
- He totally doesn’t mind using cutesy pet names all the time (in private, lol), and cuddling for hours.
- This might be TMI, but I wanted to wait until marriage, and he’s never, ever pushed me to go against that, even though he’s not a virgin.
- He’s super adorable
- He always knows when I’m in a bad mood, and he’s great about pulling me out of it.
- He calls every day that we’re not together unless he’s at work and he can’t.
- He respects my video game zombie-killing expertise.
- He thinks red and green are appropriate at any time in the year. 🙂
- He doesn’t clean nearly as often as I think he should, but we’ve talked about cleaning expectations once we live together, so hopefully that will work out.
My list is a little skewed, but I couldn’t help it!

These are funny. Here’s mine.
- Hilarious- Like, pee your pants funny.
- Laid back- He doesn’t take himself too seriously, and will lay in bed and look at LOLCATS with me.
- Loves sports-I love baseball, and we are freaks about it together.
- Super cute and very athletic body (He played baseball through college.)
- Always takes time to do nice little things for me, like bring me a bottle of juice or chocolate milk on the way home from work.
- Excellent guitar player, plays me to sleep at night.
- Loves sports-Plays Fantasy EVERYTHING.
- More of a homebody than me.
- Rarely reads, except shitty Dan Brown books. I am a book snob.
- Won’t play me in any board game that I am better at. He’s a sore loser.
