Best: He is genuinely a good person. That was my #1 priority when looking for a life partner, and he aces that test 🙂

Worst: His memory sucks. It may seem like a petty complaint, but it’s frustrating to have to repeat things I know I told him before. Thank goodness for modern technology with its cell phone reminders

BEST: He’s such a good person and always willing to help out a friend or lend an ear. He’s a great communicator and that is something that has really strengthened our relationship, we have been able to talk through so many things that might have broken other relationships if communication was bad. I’m not good at telling people how I feel, I tend to bottle things up and try to just let them go but he forces me to be honest and talk it out. He’s also extremely outgoing and makes friends where ever he goes which I’m not good at, I tend to be shy and quiet at first but outgoing after you get to know me. I love that he’s so willing to just talk to anyone.

WORST: He’s so LAZY!!! He will sit on the couch all day (I mean, with me, but still..) and wait until I get up and then ask me to get him water, food, whatever. And he leaves his crap EVERYWHERE!! His laundry sits on the table where I folded it all week, he comes out of the shower and gets dressed downstairs in the living room. His deoderant and foot powder are sitting on my piano right now. It drives me nuts and no matter how much I nag him to stop it, it just doesn’t happen. I’m hoping when we move to the new house and have a more organized home it will get better.

Best: He is also just a good person all around. He helps people anytime there is need. He loves his family and would do anything for them. He is a hard worker. I do not know anyone who does not like him. He’s so loveable. He is handsome, caring and funny. And the sex….. ooh. Haha

Worst: Sometimes he is not sensitive to my feelings. If I am upset about something he just won’t talk to me. He doesn’t try to cheer me up (but it really depends on why I am upset). He could also be a little more romantic lol

Best: Funny, charming, so smart, just exudes kindness from every cell, a really excellent natural leader, loves playing in the outdoors, loves ME!

Worst: He’s pretty ADD, so he can be spacey and disorganized and slobby.  And yeah,  @lealorali: I also have to remind him of things but then he doesn’t like my “nagging”.  You can’t win sometimes!  But there’s no one else I’d rather nag, lol.

Best: He has a good heart and is constantly helping people with things no questions asked, my family, his family, the neighbours..doesn’t matter he is always helping out. And he is a super hard worker, never known anyone to work as hard as he does.

Worst: He can be pretty selfish and insensitive sometimes, thinks of his own needs and wants before mine usually and it’s unfair because I put him first and he puts him first so where does that leave me?

Best: he is just a good,  kind person.  He just inherently views everyone with a kind outlook, whereas I can be more negative and mean spirited at times.  I love his sense of humor, he’s not always cracking jokes but when he does it is more unexpected and adorable. I just generally enjoy spending time with him.  He also is good about doing his tasks around the house and is very handy which I find super attractive!  i know he will be a wonderful father. 

worst: he is, in my mind, an overly nostalgic person.  nostalgia is just not my thing.  I grew up with a hoarding mother so I don’t really like saving things just because, but he wants to keep a lot of stuff for the associated memories.

He is also very introverted, whereas I am slightly more extroverted. He socializes for my benefit, not his own, and sometimes I feel like he doesn’t recognize the sacrifices I make socially for his benefit (he’ll act like we do things ALL THE TIMES, when for me it feels like we rarely socialize.)

despite this, the good outweighs the bad by far!

Best: He is very optimistic and still retains a lot of qualities that an innocent child would have. Let me explain a bit: his dream job is still to be the president of the US! I’ve never heard anyone over the age of 10 that has this goal, and I admire him for still believing in himself since I’ve already hit the point of always thinking, “I could never have that job, why should I apply?” Plus, he’s pretty sweet!

Worst: He doesn’t know how to cope in stressful situations. Luckily he is getting better at this, but it’s still pretty bad, and luckily it’s not the smaller stresses but larger ones that get to him. I’m calm as a cucumber in almost any situation, but he tends to get really upset and angry when things happen. The other day his car battery happened to die due to cold weather after I drove it down to our mailbox which is like a 2 min drive from our apartment. He was freaking out on me because he thought I broke it!

Best: He cooks and cleans and loves it. He wouldn’t mind if I never cooked or cleaned anything again. 

Worst: His driving. He’s a legit 3rd world driver who doesn’t even see the lines in the street, let alone drive within them. If we move back to the US, I’m not allowing him to drive ever.

Best: his integrity hand down the thing i love the absolute most about him. He’s also a respectful, kind, hard working man. He is an amazingly good, yet very firm father for our son. We were young when we had our son and hadn’t been together very long, and I just couldn’t have imagined back then how well our parenting styles would have complimented eachother. 

Worst: one of his worst things is also one of his best things. He is a go-getter and a leader in everything he does, which I love of course, but he’s always looking for the next thing so he’s always very busy with a LOT of commitments. It can be challenging at times when his attention is spread so thin, and sometimes I get frustrated, but he does do a very good job at trying to balance all his priorities (not always successfull) and he always makes time for 1-1 time with us.

BEST: He is highly motivated & loyal to his core.

WORST: He has the emotional IQ of a brick and being that I am highly emotionally, he either never “gets it” or is very short and rude to me.

@MrsSkeletonKey:  LOL that made me laugh. “emotional IQ of a brick”

The Best: he is the kindest person I’ve ever known. Always going out of his way for people that don’t deserve it. Everyone loves him.

The Worst: I’m having a hard time thinking of one now, but there is definitely something. Probably the way he argues. He tends to get condescending and all kinds of other fallacies without noticing. We don’t argue often enough to really work on it, but I do call him out when he does it.

Best: He truly, honestly cares about other people, and he has an incredible work ethic.

Worst: He is a procrastinator and avoids change. Not on little stuff – the big ones, like changing jobs or moving. I have to (eventually) “push” if it’s important, and that frustrates both of us.
