@cora_123:  I feel you!

I wish he would just write things down and make a damn list!

I wish I could depend on him knowing for sure that when he says he has it under control, he effin’ has it under control, lol.

Don’t get me started, seriously, lol (def. one of those days…).

there are certain things my fiance does that show he’s definitely thinking a lot more about and in depth than me and vice versa

before any financial commitment, I double, triple, quadruple check everything

but if I’m going to the gym, hike, out for a run/bike I forget to bring water, my keys, and basic survival items 😛 while my fiance never forgets them and always sticks water/snacks and stuff in my backpack

without me, he’d be ripped off, broke, and getting scammed constantly

without him, I’d probably die of dehydration. 🙁 lol.

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore my husband, but there are days when I think “how the hell did you survive without me?”!!!

There are days when I will ask him to pick up something from the store while he is ON HIS WAY HOME and he will manage to forget in a span of 10 minutes… 

How does one fix this?!

Yup, I have a man-baby over here LOL. I absolutely have to make him a list of things to do or he doesn’t do anything. Like he’s perfectly happy to clean the bathroom, take out the trash, wash the dishes, etc. while I’m working, but just seeing that it needs done isn’t enough. There has to be a note telling him what needs to be done, that I love him, have a good day, etc. LOL 

I think I have a little more common sense/street smarts. I’m younger than him, but I definitely have a more realistic view on the world. He’s one of those guys that thought that he would graduate from college and just land perfectly into this amazing position in his field a week afterwards. He actually gets really upset when he has an application rejected even though I told him it’s going to take some time. 

My SO is definitely more book smart though. He won’t admit it, but he does well in pretty much any subject that he tries. I pretty much suck at math and all sciences except for biology.
