DH and I are the same as you two in the affection department, so I feel you!
Where we differ the most is planning. I love that man, but he does not plan anything. He truly, truly goes where the wind takes him day to day. I stick to a schedule on most days, and diverting from it kinda annoys me. We’ve helped each other in that area though. He’s helped me learn to lay off the planner/schedule a bit and enjoy, and I think I’ve helped him realize the importance of planning for some things.

Not much! I am really super hyper- I just have lots of energy and I love it and I am kind of known for it- I love making things fun, am known for a lot of charisma, people are attracted to it. DH has very low energy, but it works! Just sometimes I want to dance around or sing songs on guitar or talk late at night and he is too tired generally.

I’m a morning person, he is not.
I’m very high-strung, very high stress, he is very laid-back.

i love food. all food and will try anything (almost). i also love to cook new and exciting dishes. he is the pickiest eater i’ve ever met, like worse than a child.
i love being with people. i love entertaining. i love the thrill of crowds.
he prefers intimate settings. likes to be one on one and is not fond of being somewhere busy.
i think it has a lot to do with where we grew up. big city vs small county.

I am an extrovert and he is an introvert. He is very easily stressed and I am extremely easy going. I have a sweet tooth that is so ravenous it effects my lifem he could take or leave sweets. I am a label whore, and although he like brands, he has an affinity for generics. (How many times I have to school him about brand detergent I will never know). Honestly, our differences is what make us POP! I would not want to date me 🙂

The way we argue about things lol..or that may just be a woman vs man difference.

Gaming styles, he plays casters, I always play a rogue.

Quite a few lol
He’s a morning person, and only needs about 6 hours sleep. I need at least 8 hours, ideally 9 hours, and I’m a night-owl (though this is largely down to the fact I work 2 late nights a week, and it throws my body-clock out)
We also differ a lot food-wise, he is a picky eater: he doesn’t like seafood, whereas I love it, there are loads of vegetables and textures he doesn’t like, he eats his steak well-done whereas I eat mine rare/blue; the lost goes on!
He’s also very into technology/having the latest phone etc, whereas I’m not really interested. And I love reading, but he hates it; we also have very different tastes when it comes to films and television programmes (I love shows like CSI and Law and Order, he refers to them as ‘American sh*t’ lol)
Politically and morally we have the same views, and we have the same sense of humour, and neither of us is religious (I’m atheist, he’s agnostic). We also both enjoy nice holidays and eating out, and both love clothes and shoes.

We’re not the complete opposite about anything and it’s a little scary how similar we are.

Competitiveness. Fiance LOVES sports, games, anything he can win! He is very very athletic and witty. I on the other hand…. I do enjoy playing sports and I consider myself to be a pretty smart woman but in all honesty, if I lose at something, its not the end of the world. lol Fiance can be such a baby when he loses!! I think its pretty humorous. Esp when I beat him! :p

He’s a morning person/ I’m a night owl.
He likes to be early to everything/ I prefer to be late so I don’t have to wait for things to get started.

We don’t always agree when it comes to food or music, but I would have to say that our biggest mismatch is style. We don’t dislike each other’s styles in the slightest, but he is pretty casual–polos and jeans–and I usually go for a punk or sweet lolita style. People that know one of us but not the other are usually pretty surprised at our differences when they finally see both of us at the same time.
I think what is funniest about the whole thing is that because my Fiance is casually dressed and has a professional air about him, people assume I’M the wild and crazy one. HA!

The Mr and I differ in just about everything.. not complete polar opposites though at least!
- I can sleep for 10+ hours and am a deep sleeper; he’s lucky to squeeze in 5-6 and is an extremely light sleeper
- He listens to rock music exclusively; I listen to just about everything
- He is repulsed by butter & cheese; I love myself a delicious grilled cheese sandwich
- He is a neat freak; I tend to accumulate clutter
- He loves working out at 5:30am every morning; I prefer evening workouts
- He only watches action/thriller movies; I love romantic comedies the best
- Kids are naturally drawn to me, but my man is kinda awkward around them (But he tries at least!)
- His fave color is blue; mine is red
Wow.. how on earth did we end up together?? lol! I still love him so despite our differences 🙂

He’s disgustingly logical about most things, whereas I, although not as irrational as my mom (love her, but she is kooky), am much more emotionally driven.
I like winter sports like skiing and snowshoeing, he despises going outside in winter to exercise– because he’s a carpenter and usually has to work out in the cold all day in the winter. He’d rather ride a stationary exercise bike on winter weekends than go out skiing. Blech.
He’s into certain sports that I have NO interest in!
Even given all that, we have more in common than my parents do. . . 😛
This thread is a pretty interesting demonstration that in a lot of cases, opposites really do attract! And those relationships work!

He’s skilled at sports and I am not. He’s more competitive than I am too. Also, he hates spicey foods and I love them. Annnnndddd he’s sloppy in comparison to me, lol.
