Ah, you mean like magnets! 🙂

FI and I are opposites, but only to a certain degree.

– I’m a bit more outgoing than FI is; he’s much more shy and quiet in new social situations

– Same with the beach while he loves the mountains! I grew up close to a beach most of my life for 16 years. There’s barely any beaches in the Prairies.

– I like savoury snacks; he prefers sweets

– I’m generally messy; he’s tidier and more organized. I’m lucky he wasn’t looking for a housewife because I was looking for a house-husband, lol

– Culturally, we’re also very different. In my culture, it’s common to have kids living with parents until they marry. In his culture, once you’re 18, you’re on your own.

My hubby is literally the guy version of me. We’re both super outgoing, same crazy sense of humor, can be a little sensitive… But we look opposite lol he’s 6 foot blonde hair blue eyes all American, I’m 5’2 dark hair dark eyes more exotic looking.

He’s tidy, I’m messy. Our music tastes definitely vary. He’s far taller than I am. We’re pretty similar otherwise.

He’s shy, quiet and private. 

I’m outgoing and boisterous & within 15 mins of meeting me, you’ll know my whole life story hehe. 

He craves sweets, I crave salty

He’s calm, I’m a nervous wreck at times.

He has an amazingly wicked sense of humor, I don’t lol. 

Opposites do attract!

He’s laid-back & calm. I’m usually a nervous nut. 

He likes Sci-FI shows. I like crime shows. 

He likes beer. I like fruity drinks. 

He likes to dress very casual. I like getting all dolled-up. 

He’s not a clean freak. I am.

My mom says, “Opposites attract, but they don’t stay together.” Hence the first ex-RedHeadKel. Lol! But whatever works!

I am extremely spontaneous, I overthink EVERYTHING, I am always paranoid.

My husband is my anchor and slows me down. He is my calm when I spaz out, and he definitely keeps me level.

Aside from those differences, we’re pretty similar.
