I was reading some of the posts from the other thread and thought, I wonder how many of us are what our SO/FI/DH’s imagined or not? Did your partner have an idea in his head of what he wanted and do you meet or shatter that image? Like the other thread, please explain your answer! 🙂

I have asked my husband that before, but he said “I don’t analyze things like you do!”
So there you go LOL!

I guess i may have answered wrong lol I answered with yes on personality and no on appearance but i think thats more how i feel about our situation not how he feels. He was the one who was initially attracted to me (why i have no idea because we look like a hot dog and a hamburger when walking next to each other, me being the hamburger). we met by chance in a somewhat weird way and the more we talked the more we just fit together. but not in a “oh we have so much in common” type way more in a “wow this person is so opposite of me and they balance me out so so well” type of a way. Either way, very interesting thread 🙂

@KatyElle: I didn’t ask my guy, but I know the answer would be, “I don’t know?! I love you?!” *frustrated breathing*
I feel like as long as the guy is happy, they don’t really care. Could just be me, though.

I look completely different than the women my SO dated previously, but I think that’s what he likes about me!

I said I fit appearance wise but not personality. My SO has a type and I deeefinitely fall into that type. All the celebs he finds attractive look like me or are my same ethnic background. I said no to the personality because like most of you I don’t think my SO thought much about his ideal partner. Guys are so silly!

We joke that I’m his “10 and a half”. First week of undergrad he made a list of 11 traits he was looking for- the only thing I don’t fulfill?
“Loves to sing and dance” I don’t sing.
He “required” 10 out of the 11

I’m not sure he had an “ideal”. He did tell me about one time, back when he was engaged to another girl and their relationship was going downhill, we were together in a group of friends. I was sharing with the group how I was planning on moving in to a neighborhood mission house to do full-time ministry. He said he looked at me and though, “Now that’s the kind of girl I want to marry”…..and eventually he did :-). So maybe?

My SO has said on many occasions that he never expected to find me (personality-wise) because he is so picky!! I don’t think he expected me to be a redhead (and ghostly pale) but other than that I am very much his type physically.

I don’t know about personality – I assume he likes my personality? Lol. But I have noticed that he has a distinct physical “type,” and I resemble it.

Hmm, I wish he was here for me to ask! I know I am totally different from his previous gfs, and neither of us ever in a million years thought we would end up together, but I think we make the perfect match. I don’t know that he though he would ever get married. I’ll have to ask him when he gets home cuz now I want to know!

I said I shattered his expectations ONLY because he never thought he would find the right person and get married. So I guess to ‘shatter’ his expectations wouldn’t have taken much 🙂

I shatter his expectations when it comes to looks. I don’t mean that in a conceited way, it’s just that before me he HATED girls with short hair, piercings, and who change their hair colour all the time. Right after we started dating I cut my long hair to about 1/2 inch long, I dye it constantly, and my nose was pierced. But he says he loves the way I look, no matter how I look because it’s just me. 🙂
Personality-wise… eh, not quite sure. I think he thought he’d end up with someone with a better sense of humor but he loves me just the way I am. (also, it’s not that my sense of humor is bad, it’s that some of his jokes aren’t funny!! :P)

This is a great post btw!
The couple of g/f’s he had before me apparently inspired him to want someone who..
-had a good relationship with their family (and preferably have parents who are still together)
-can get along with his friends, siblings, and parents
-wants a relationship to end up in marriage
There may have been a couple other things that I don’t remember, but what’s funny is that I actually brought up most of these things with him before we even dated..needless to say, the rest is history!

Fi actually told me freshman year of high school that he would marry me some day… I told him he was nuts because we were really JUST friends at that point in time but here we are almost 8 years later planning the wedding!!!
