My Fiance and I were talking the other day about the habit we have that annoy eachother, and Thank GOODNESS we don’t take eachother too seriously, otherwise feelings would have been hurt… Now I love him with all my heart , but he is NOT perfect, just perfect for me.. One thing he does that ABSOLUTELY ANNOYS ME is he leaves his socks EVERYWHERE! in the kitchen, bathroom, floor, table, counter, bed… ahhhh just thinking about it drives me INSANE, and he thinks its the funniest thing ever..
What your your SO annoying habits?

His indecisiveness/deference to plans! He wants to make sure everyone has a say, so he always defers things like where to eat, plans for a weekend, etc. to me or someone else so that everyone is happy. It’s endearing, sure, but sometimes I just want HIM to tell me what HE wants!

He squeezes the toothpaste from the middle of the tube, and he folds t-shirts backwards. Our solutions were simple- I have my own tube of toothpaste & we do our laundry separately.
He says he hates the way I fold t-shirts, and he thinks it’s annoying that I will dry my feet thouroughly, between the toes and everything, before getting out of the shower. I stand on my right foot, dry my left foot completely, then slip my dry left foot into my slipper. Then, standing on my left dry foot (in a slipper) I dry my right foot completely. He finds this process incredibly irritating.

He’s always glued to his blackberry. It drives me bonkers.

He puts everything away where I can’t find it – I get EXTRA annoyed when he does this with my cellphones and chargers!! Heaven forbid he’s not home and doesn’t answer his cell phone when I discover he’s put everything away. Again. In an entirely new spot that only he knows of.
I’m sure he has plenty of peeves about me too, like I am very messy and rarely clean up after myself! 🙂

When he cooks he doesn’t clean up. So afterwards, when you walk in the kitchen, there is random food still left out on the counter. Today after breakfast, half an onion, the rest of the eggs, half a tomato, a cutting board, and spinach leaves were left on different surfaces all over the kitchen.

My Fiance does the 1/2 clean up. Meaning, after dinner he will run the dishwasher, but there are still random dishes and food on the counter that he’ll just leave for the next time. Why not wash everything at once? Drives me nuts.

@allieluvs21: You know what’s funny? Before I even clicked to open this thread, I thought to myself, “SOCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!” Hahaha! It makes me laugh, though. I mean, how can one person even wear that many socks in the first place!?
If I had to choose a real thing that annoys me, I would say when he leaves dishes/pots/pans in the sink. We only have a single sink in the kitchen and it usually means that in order to use it, I have to wash all the gross dishes he left in there first. Grr!

@DaneLady: Hahaha!! A friend of mine had a WAR with her SO over the toothpaste squeezing thing once…they even called me out of the blue to see how I squeezed mine as a tie-breaker!!
My Fiance has a number of annoying habits, like most men. He leaves clothes everywhere. EVERYWHERE. It’s not uncommon to find a pair of pants on the dining room floor. And what’s worse is our dog (a golden retriever) likes to bring us random things, so I never know for sure which of them has left the pants in the dining room. He also seems to be allergic to bringing his dirty dishes into the kitchen, or rinsing them off when he’s done. He also does not have the ability to find anything, or remember where he’s puts things. If I tell him he left his keys on the kitchen counter, he’ll look all over the kitchen and complain that he can’t find the keys. I always have to say ‘If I go all the way in there and they’re in front of your face, you owe me something good’.

he would kill me for sharing this, but he has this habit that he has had since he was little. he takes the corners of my expnsive pillows and balls them up in his “special” way. so while other kids sucked on blankets and their thumbs, he did this. now all of my pillow corners are balled up and scrunched. i HATE it, but i LOVE him so i deal with it. i see it as a sing that he has a comfort level with me that he doesnt with anybody else.

Everytime he uses a paper towel, he’ll leave it on the counter RIGHT above the trash can. He never throws them away and it drives me nuts. But then I noticed when we were at his parents’ house this past Christmas that his mom does the same thing.

Taking bites out of leftover things like burgers and pizza where you can SEE the bitemarks and then putting it back in the fridge. OMG WHY DO YOU DO THAT?!?!

Instead of taking 5 seconds to change the toilet paper, he’ll rest the new roll on top of the empty cardboard tube of the last roll. I see red when he does this!!
And he never cleans up after he cooks. He leaves the kitchen a gigantic hot sauce spattered mess around 11pm (when I’ve already gone to bed) and then I’m supposed to wake up in the morning and clean it. I went on a 3 day cleaning strike the last time this happened, so he’s been good about it lately.
