This is Too Much Information but I was really surprised at how long he spends on the can. He sits there playing games on his phone. I mean really?! Are there no other more comfortable places to sit in the house? Just strange…

LOl this is funny… Mine is how long he is on the can as well with his phone playing games or downloading music and how long it takes him to get ready. He takes longer than me.

I also noticed before bed he takes forever. He lotions up because he has dry skin.. its like a whole process. It gets annoying when I am waiting LOL

@baldor1: I think every man is like that. Oh lord.

One thing he does that makes me crazy and I couldn’t have known about before we moved in together was that typically about 5-10 minutes before guests come over (whether just another couple or a big party) he goes to take a shower. And like Baldor says, I don’t know what he does in there, but he’s gone like FOREVER. He does it most often when it’s his friends coming, and then I’m stuck entertaining his friends for a good half hour before he comes out. It’s like he wants to be fashionably late, it makes me INSANE.

I don’t think anything really surprised me.  He throws socks everywhere, but that’s not a big deal, who cares? To me, living together wasn’t really about finding out “habits” like being messy etc.

It was important for us to learn how to work together, figure out how we relate to each other and the outside world as a team, respond to each other’s needs, etc., on a daily basis.  I think we’ve really fine-tuned a lot of these communication skills that will help us in our marriage.  This is why I can’t imagine marrying without living together first.

Baldor – me too!!!   How long, but also, how often! I have to say, that was the MOST surprising and annoying thing I discovered about him.  Seemed like every time I turned around the first few months, he was in there (especially if we were about to leave, or I needed his help with something, lol).

LOL I’m glad I’m not the only one with a man like that! It’s like he never leaves the bathroom! I swear like you said everytime you turn around he’s in there! LOL..  And he takes way longer to get ready, he changes his outfit at least 3 times, but it’s fun cuz I can tease him about it!

I think its a guy thing! They all love to be in the bathroom!

I think mine was how little he washes his clothes. He washes under shirts, undies & sox but everything else he NEVER washes! Sometimes i have to sneak things in w/o him seeing them just to was them!

hahaha these are too funny.  I’m trying to think of something that annoys me, but I don’t get annoyed easily.  I think something that might bug most people is he throws his work clothes all over the living room and takes his socks off and leaves them in front of the stairs till he gets up to the washing machine.  But that’s not even that big of a deal.  He’s the tidy one between us!!!!

EDIT – I just realized the title was the most SURPRISING thing, not annoying thing, so probably the most surprising thing is that he’s not like some men I’ve known or heard others complain about.  He doesn’t spend much time on the can, he always closes the bathroom door and leaves the seats down, he doesn’t drink out of the milk cartons, etc. and he’s the one cleaning up after me

how he is a neat freak about somethings and a total SLOB about others (which I am of course, obsessed with!)

How long he showers for! He likes to just stand there in the shower. I have to take showers first or he uses all the hot water 😛

oh my gosh mine is such a creature of habit and such a perfectionist. every single thing is done every night in the exact same way. he is basically OCD. and i am so carefree and never do anything the same way twice. hahaha
