Haha, that cracks me up that you’re a nurse and are stunned at his crazy hand-washing. =)  He must be totally extreme!!

One thing about my Fiance…oh gosh, sometimes, his voice.  I am serious.  It has grown on me, but when I first spoke to him on the phone (we met online) I was floored; his voice did NOT match his face.  It’s just kind of … hard to describe, but he sounds like he’s mocking you or something when you’re not used to it.

1 – He bites his nails. It. Drives. Me. Nuts.

2 – Just thinking about this one because I was just cooking dinner with him: when he cooks, he carries around the kitchen towel with him. I usually leave it hanging over the oven door handle, or in a really convenient spot. Normally it’s fine that he does it differently, but when I’m cooking with him and I need the towel and he’s CARRYING IT AROUND I want to shoot him just a little bit. lol

When he answers question with:  “that’s fine”.  Usually it’s me saying: “Do you care if I/we do, x, y or z”   Him:  “That’s fine”.  It’s an incomplete answer…. and I always have to ask him what he means.  He does this ALL the time.  Drives me up the wall.  ๐Ÿ™‚

@amandalynn: ditto!  My Fiance is a huge nail biter.  I just don’t get it!

I can’t stand the noise!!! Every time he does it it makes me wince and squirm. I think it drives him crazy that it annoys me so much. I’m hoping that works to my advantage, haha.

haha hmmm I think the #1 thing is that he’s kind of a label whore. I could seriously care less who or what I’m wearing/buying as long as everything looks nice and is functional. I’m not out to impress anyone. He is all about the name. He has to buy his clothes at banana republic and have a michael kors watch. He would sooner die than wear something I bought for him at target. I just think its shows a bit of low confidence, like he needs to impress people or something? But I’m over a lot of this since he instituted a budget and no longer spends full paychecks shopping. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also don’t love that he is a bit apathetic socially. I am a total bleeding heart liberal and he just doesn’t always *get* it. He is a corporate accountant so he’s much more plugged into big money than I am. It drives me nuts when he makes a comment like “oh why can’t they just get a job” etc. To his credit though, he does always give me a chance to make my argument, even if he disagrees. haha.

Oh also! The way he eats. No matter what it is, somehow his fingers end up in his mouth up to the knuckle. Grosses me out like WOAH. haha

I swear I do love him a lot though! Even if I can name three things right away that drive me batty!

Mine is also a nail biter.  The thing that really gets me though isn’t really his fault (I blame his parents for not emphasizing how important appearance can be) is that he doesn’t understand etiquette, like when I took him to a nice steakhouse he practically inhaled his filet mignon without even chewing it! Another thing is that his version of cleaning is just picking things up, not wiping them down etc.  Oh well!

my fiance has selective hearing…and sometimes when he repeats what i said back to me it’s completely warped. reminds of that game i used to play in elementary school “telephone.” but i love him! i’m sure i’m not perfect…..;)

Video game noises

The fact that he goes to bed SUPER early

He’s a hornball in the morning, I am at night

He doesn’t always put food down the disposal while we’re cooking, and it will end up staying like that for days if I don’t touch it.

 

All that being said, he’s still freaking fantastic. :p

He leaves piles of messes everywhere!  He doesn’t agree with me that everything should have a place and that place should be out of eyesight!!
