LOL, I’ll share.

Pros of my boy:
One of the smartest people I’ve ever met
Makes me smile & laugh
We have shared values, and ideas on the Big Issues
Treats me with a great deal of respect
Fun to be around

drives himself ragged sometimes over schoolwork
is a hipster music snob who puts way too much stock in listening to “cool kid” music (that is often not even very good)
does not like to do chores
we can get very competitive sometimes (probably as much my fault as is)
is a patriots fan

Great conversationalist

A true gentleman




Clueless on housework (except dishes and taking out the garbage!)

  • He’s got a really cute, goofy sense of humor
  • He totally doesn’t mind using cutesy pet names all the time (in private, lol), and cuddling for hours.
  • This might be Too Much Information, but I wanted to wait until marriage, and he’s never, ever pushed me to go against that, even though he’s not a virgin.
  • He’s super adorable
  • He always knows when I’m in a bad mood, and he’s great about pulling me out of it.
  • He calls every day that we’re not together unless he’s at work and he can’t.
  • He respects my video game zombie-killing expertise.


  • He thinks red and green are appropriate at any time in the year. πŸ™‚
  • He doesn’t clean nearly as often as I think he should, but we’ve talked about cleaning expectations once we live together, so hopefully that will work out.

My list is a little skewed, but I couldn’t help it!

These are funny. Here’s mine.


  1. Hilarious- Like, pee your pants funny. 
  2. Laid back- He doesn’t take himself too seriously, and will lay in bed and look at LOLCATS with me.
  3. Loves sports-I love baseball, and we are freaks about it together.
  4. Super cute and very athletic body (He played baseball through college.)
  5. Always takes time to do nice little things for me, like bring me a bottle of juice or chocolate milk on the way home from work.
  6. Excellent guitar player, plays me to sleep at night.


  1. Loves sports-Plays Fantasy EVERYTHING.
  2. More of a homebody than me. 
  3. Rarely reads, except shitty Dan Brown books. I am a book snob.
  4. Won’t play me in any board game that I am better at. He’s a sore loser.

1. always dependable
2. very accepting
3. a great provider
4. has a great inner strength/protectivness that can shock me at times because i forget my big teddy bear is all male
5. with a quite word of support he has the ability to wake up and say “i want to try…. ” (in his late 30’s he taught himself to swim, play guitar and went back to uni, in his early 40’s he taught himself to ride a bike and last month he skydived for the first time)

1. procrastinates –
2. fails to launch big ideas into action without encouragement (thanks to greek mom, grrrr)
3. wont take risks (financial and employment)
4. doesnt like change in his homelife (i told him i would never fight him for that horrid lava lamp in a divorce)
5. is a typical gemini – very high highs, and spiraling lows

  • Intelligent, intellectual, and driven — he makes me SO proud πŸ™‚
  • Doesn’t want children, ever
  • Puts up with a big fat nightlight in the bedroom because I’m terrified of the dark, and more importantly doesn’t make me feel stupid about it
  • Also doesn’t make me feel stupid about being my age and still sleeping with two stuffed animals. On the rare occasion that we spoon in bed, he scoops up both my stuffed animals right along with me and isn’t put off by it πŸ™‚
  • Hardly plays video games at all and hates sports as much as I do
  • Splits all housework equally with me because he doesn’t see why it should ever be the “woman’s job”
  • Is equally as vested in being environmentally friendly as I am


  • Has a horrible sleep schedule and depends on me to wake him up all the time
  • Is ridiculously bad at making plans and is never on time for anything because he just cannot think ahead and estimate how much time something will take
  • Doesn’t really like to cuddle πŸ™
  • Can have an extremely potty-centric sense of humor
  • Is decidedly un-spiritual and science-minded and doesn’t understand my interest in yoga, herbal remedies, guided meditation, etc.
