It is my most shameful behavior- I am a total bad sport at board games. He beats me at Monopoly and I throw his pewter piece across the room. He steals my money in Life and I throw the dollars at him. He wins at Trivial Pursuit and I go stone-cold silent for 10 minutes. It is obnoxious and I am trying to get better! I think I need cognitive behavioral therapy, I’m an only child!

I’ve super cometitive at everything I do…it just sucks that I also suck at everything I do…it always sets me up for failure…

The best is boxing on Wii…I put my whole body into it…after the first round I’m weezing and can’t catch my breath…meanwhile he’s so calm at it and is destroying me!

Only I get secretly competitive when we play video games, but I would never tell him that! Other then that we do not get competitive when playing games with others, I think it’s because we have been victim to extremely competitive people when we were younger, i.e. older brothers and vowed not to be like that.

We no longer play against each other, either.  My Fiance is an attorney, and the only post-high school education I received was for floral design, so when I’d start to win at any type of trivia game, he’d quit.  We can’t even do crossword puzzles together, but we make a heck of a team!

Oh yeah, we are competitive. He loves board games, but I regularly wipe the floor with him on them.

Yes, definitely. I thought that I would be better at snowboarding than my husband because he had never gone before and I had gone a few times with my friends. But on his first time out on the snow, he made mince meat out of my pride.

We are competitive over school. Sometimes we’ll take classes together and we get highly competitive over grades.

Defnitely and it doesn’t help matters that we are both notorious and ruthless smack-talkers!  As much as I want to be the ultimate winner… I laugh my a** off watching him try to top my hoola hoop record on wii fit!

Absolutely. It’s keeps things interesting! Knowing how competitive I am, I couldn’t see being with someone who wasn’t competitive.

Oh, not really. I’m not too competitve at all, and honestly I don’t enjoy games. We play Wii and Scrabble but usually it’s just a little fun. Usually I watch him play Wii against the machine — that’s fun!

Not really.  I’m very competitive by nature, but he’s so laid-back that I’m not competitive at all with him.

It’s not worth it to be competitive.  He’s so athletic that I would just look silly, no matter what he does athletically he’s good at it.  He went to yoga with me and the teacher stopped to compliment him repeatedly–she never does that!  Lol not that yoga is competitive or anything…You get the point

I’m not very competitive by nature, and he’s not really either.  We run together all the time and no competitive stuff there.  However, if we’re playing something like Left 4 Dead on our xbox, we are TOTALLY (playfully) competitive.  It’s really fun!

We’re pretty competitive, we have a lot of the same games on our iphones and he likes to tell me how he’s beaten my high scores on all of them. Forget it when we’re playing the Wii or board games. We’re both REALLY sore losers!
