My Fiance would still be living in his mother’s basement.

He’d be a lost soul. lol Before we got together he didn’t have a debit card, cell phone, his own car, still lived at home.. he was like a 13 yr old boy. Now he has s smart phone (which is glued to his side), a debit card & several credit cards, his own car, bought a house (with me).. he’s grown up a lot in the 5 1/2 years we’ve been together.. it took some tough love, but I think he appreciates it.

Awww, Fiance likes to sing this song at me sometimes. Honestly, he wouldn’t be much different. Even before we met, he was the sort of person who drove a sensible car and had good eating habits and exercised regularly and changed his sheets weekly and hung up his clothes in the closet after doing laundry. I suppose he’d be less skilled at playing with Barbie dolls on account of not having my little girl around to teach him how to do “dad” things, haha. And he’d spend more time with his friends. And probably go shopping less, lol. But really, I don’t think there’d be much difference.

My Fiance is pretty self-sufficient, but I’ve heard on several occasions he used to spend his Saturday nights playing games on the internet while in his underwear eating a block of cheddar cheese.  Yeah.

He’d probably starve. Before I met him/when we were dating causally he was obvoiusly forced to cook for himself. His, uh, speciality was “Foreman Chicken”. He’d plop a chicken breast on the George Foreman grill and cook it until it was a rubbery, disgusting, hockey puck of meat. Then he’s finish it off w/ a dash of Montreal Seasoning and plow thru it. We still joke about it, 5 years later.

He would be exactly the same. Before we met we were both self sufficient, responsible people. He can cook, do laundry and clean, he even bakes. He would probably spend a little more time with friends oce in a while but not much else would change.

Well, we’re in an LDR, so I know what he’s like without me! When he was here with me, he was a total neatfreak, hated letting things be cluttered, dishes had to be done quickly, etc. Now that he’s out on his own? Lets the dishes pile up for a week or more! It makes me laugh.

I also know that without me to do his laundry, he lets it go as long as he possibly can get away with it. He also now owns and uses a cell phone (never did before), and doesn’t go out as often as he used to when he lived here.

He’s really just as responsible as he was when he was living with me, but just a bit messier (which I hope means he’ll cut me some slack about my own cluttered apartment!)

we’ve never lived together, and we’re one hour apart so we dont frequently see eachother during the week. so in away he lives the single life without womanizing. he doesnt know how to cook much, his mom or his grandmom baby him big time, washing his clothes etc

it’ll be interesting to see the changes when we’re under one roof and whenever im away from him. he’d probably drop his laundry off at his moms, and have his grandmother cook for him. he’d still be taken care of.

Honestly, he would probably not have a clue what he wants to do with his life. I am the planner between the two of us and somehow, I’ve brought out his inner planner. He would have just stayed in the army until he retired at 40. Then spend his retirement fishing everyday. Rather than winging it through life, he is now going to finish up a bacholer’s degree before he gets out the army to start a family with me.

It’s funny, occasionally he’ll ask me, “Babe, can we have solar panels for our house?” “Can we raise our own animals?” “I’ll wash the dishes if you dry/put them away” Just yesterday he asked me if we could have an army tank in the front yard to deter unwanted guests (I shot him down and I said you can name our future mastiff Tank.) and also if we could have a drawbridge and moat. He is adorable when he makes these cute requests. He is smiling a lot more now and dreaming 🙂 I couldn’t ask for anything less.

P.S. He had me look up that song just a couple weeks ago, I knew that song described exactly how he would be like without me.

@Pearberry:  Ughhh…mental picture but seriously, I think I might have done something like before…only my cheese is a bottle of wine!

@TorTor09:  Too funny!  Your SO sounds like mine…last night he was considering buying a water filteration device ($2k) so we would have during the zombie apocolypse.  And he’s been working on fitting out our (expedition) truck so we can drive around the world in it.  In his defense, he always starts out the conversation by “You are going to think I’m crazy but…” it cracks me up everytime.

Mine would be the same as he is now. He was a completely self-sufficient (meaning can and does cook, clean, fix things, pay bills and all that other normal grown up stuff), self-aware and self-supporting adult when I met him, and remains one.

I doubt I would have been much interested in dating him if he was not such a well-rounded, self-assured, and capable adult to begin with.

That does not mean for an instant he is not also fun, easygoing, creative and often just silly. Wink

I don’t even want to know. He’d probably be living with his parents playing xbox all the time. He’d probably be constantly drunk and chain smoking. He’s actually pretty tidy when he wants to be so that wouldn’t really change. But he’d eat mcdonalds every day.

Are we assuming that Fiance and I never started dating? In that case the scene would be as follows – FI would still be a smoker, a high school drop-out and quite possibly unemployed (though in his defense, this would not be for lack of motivation-he has a great work ethic, it’s just the area we live in.) He wouldn’t eat as well, (I cook for him on the weekends enough food for lunches and dinners throughout the week) and he certainly would not be excercising 😛  

Since we’ve been together (4 years at the end of August) he’s quit smoking, got his GED, went back to high school to take advanced math and science courses so he could apply for college and is just finishing up his first year of Electronic Engineering. *little bragging here* got his marks back yesterday- 92% overall average!! He has told me I’m the reason he wants to do this (I never asked him to, but I told him he was entirely capable of doing it) because he wants to be able to build a good life with me, and no one had ever told him he could do it if he wanted to. He know’s I’m allergic to cigarette smoke, so he quit smoking before we moved in together.

My Darling Husband wears polo shirts and gym shorts out if I don’t stop him.  If he didn’t have me he’d be snickered at a whole lot more in public places.

If I didn’t have him I’d probably be racing motorcycles still and have a lot more broken bones and no real home and no one to bake for and no one to welcome home and snuggle up with and no one to make me feel like the most important girl in the world.

I think he wins =D
