Well, it is not the best thing, but he introduced me to junk food :/  (I know.)  Kettle chips, ChubbyHubby ice cream, things I never would have eaten while single!  (What can you do…)

@imalittlebirdie: Video games as well.  I went into the relationship always harping on him and starting lame arguments because of my past with my ex.  I accept them now especially because he’s proven to me that I am more important than games.  He does appreciate his “me” time though.

He got me to like….SOUTH PARK!!! i always used to think it was a stupid “boy” show and I love it now. And I was indifferent about hockey, but love it now, because he plays and has for about 15-20years

 

On the flip side I got him to like Monogolian BBQ and BIG BANG THEORY…Bazinga!

Beer.  That is the big one for me.  I HATED beer, and wouldn’t try it, and now he has me making my own!  So fun, and it’s actually quite tasty!  

Also sushi, but I hadn’t really had it before, and soccer, although I didn’t hate it, but now I’m a huge fan.  I also like to think that I’ve influenced his love of Top Chef, Bones, and Mad Men, but I still can’t get him to watch Glee!  Ha!

For me, it was Formula 1 and Moto GP racing – I never liked fast cars or motorbikes but his religious race watching has got me hooked!

Country Music!! I use to HATE country music, to the point I would get head aches. Now, it’s the only music I listen to!

I used to hate gravy of any kind. I tried now and again to like it, but always ended up scraping it to the side of my plate because I couldn’t stomach more than a quick taste.

Then DH made some from the drippings of the chicken he roasted for Thanksgiving, and I tried some for the hell of it. It was incredible…flavorful, just the right texture…so at least now I know it IS possible to make gravy that won’t make me want to spit it across the room on contact with my tastebuds.

Video/computer games for sure. Fiance loves them and would play all day if given the opportunity. He first got me into World of Warcraft, which I was dangerously addicted to for a bit. We play Minecraft, Civilization, and Diablo II together off and on recently, and it’s so much nerdy fun! He is really into Eve Online, and I’ve given that one a shot, but I just cannot get into it.

It’s nice to see other bees got into computer or video games with their SO’s…This is like my dirty secret I don’t talk to my friends about. They would be shocked to know how much I love these games! Haha!

Beer, football, South Park, Sportscenter… soo many things. We’ve known each other since we were 18, and I’ve always hung out around lots of guys, so there’s a good chance I would have gotten into these things without him. 

Weightlifting is probably a big one I wouldn’t have done. When I used to go to the gym I would do a little elliptical, maybe some light weight machines. But he taught me how to properly lift weights and get a longer stronger (and not be intimidated by being in a weight room full of men!). Now we lift together almost every day.

Fantasy Football…I’m obsessed! And might I add I’ve beat him and both of his football fanatic brothers. It’s amazeballs.

The song Yellow by Coldplay.  I don’t know why, but that song used to irritate the hell out of me.  Then the Boyfriend or Best Friend sang it one night at karaoke, and it sounded so beautiful, I play the song now because I imagine him singing it.Smile

Hiking and “real” camping. Apparently car camping doesn’t count. It’s still not my favorite thing, but we’ve done some pretty fun and beautiful backpacking trips.
