    Is there a quirk about your significant other that drives you crazy?

    As soon as my husband gets into bed he flails his feet around and kicks the blankets all over the place, which drives me nuts! What drives you crazy about him or her??

    He thinks he is always right and I am always wrong.  He has selective hearing!  Which means he don't listen to serious to the truth he is always in denial.

      That's too bad.  When you want him to "hear" you, invite a friend for dinner (if the friend agrees with what you're saying). Bring up the topic yourself.  When he ignores you, your friend offers a supportive comment.  Hard to ignore a dinner guest!

    His OCD. Picky picky picky. Most of it, I'm OCD about too. But he's a bit higher up the chain than me. I like everything in the room to match, he wants everything sanitary.

      It kind of is. We can always tell when someone has moved something. When my family visits, they move the little things to see if I notice.

    He ends up sleeping on the floor every night. That's just how he his, he loves to sleep by me but obviously has a sleeping disorder of some sort. He doesn't relaize he's doing it while he's asleep but wakes up and gets on the floor. I hate that because he'll end up sleeping half on/off the bed with his legs or his upper body or just flails around the room all night. Very annoying!

      I sure know about the flailing part! and I agree that it's annoying!!

    He lives in the shower, seriously.  He spends nearly an hour in the shower just enjoying the water.  I've gotten used to it and he's cut down his time... but in the beginning of our relationship I had counted nearly 2 hours and it drove me mad!!

      Yes MissJamieD, it is.  I guess it's a good place to think - it's quieter than anywhere else in the home!!

      That's a bit much.  With all that water waste, you might consider using the shower's grey water to irrigate your lawn and garden and that would save you a bundle on the water bill!

      Neinahpetsposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      We live in an apartment complex so no lawn/garden before we used well water when we lived near lakes in country.  I don't think an hour is too much.  He averages down to 30mins now with the occasional hour.  The 2 hours was too much, I totally agree.

    My loved one picks his teeth after meals - even the back ones! He doesn't even realize until someone else asks him if he wants a toothpick.  Then he looks slightly embarrassed - but not enough to change!  I actually bought him a portable toothpick carrying case (I didn't even know they sold those!).  He uses it in public more now - but it's not like he stopped picking his teeth.  He just switched from his finger to a toothpick... (sigh) Well, that is progress, I guess.

      Well at least that's an improvement!  Reminds me of those people who suck their teeth in public so much that people begin to stare.  I used to have a friend who did that and it was really embarrassing when people who stare.

    Nope not at all. Communicate and be considerate and your problems will most likely be solved.

      We communicate well and have talked about it....but it's just something that he does!

      I do believe there are very good people that fit each other like a glove in the communication department and in the habit department... sounds like you are lucky in love! smile
