hi kamran! as for me, I really admire how my boyfriend is so much knowledgeable about lots of things. He's techie and smart. What I also love about him is his honesty and loyalty. To me, his family and his closest friends. What I don't like is his impatience sometimes. I'm an impatient person, too, but oftentimes I'm the one who's pacifying him when he gets impatient about certain things.

My husband hmmm, I love his heart, the way that he tries to help everyone, and his sense of humor. I hate his snoring, and his lack of communication. But over all hes perfect, to me.

I am glad that You have mr perfect, JessyBlue! Lack of communication is a problem with lot of guys, and snoring can be solved by moving him little while sleeping, or otherwise you can make other intelligent arrangements:-) It's also nice to know that he has a lovely heart and s helpful:-) Thanks for sharing, JessyBlue!:-)

Right now I can't stand being around him and wish he would go to work more often like he was before. I'm 9 months pregnant and I tell him the other day that I'm very uncomfortable he says I know I hear it everyday. So now I hardly say anything to him. Tomorrow is my Drs appointment I was excited to go but now I just don't care and I wish he wouldn't have to go with me. I wish I would just have to hear about someone being uncomfortable and not have to experence it. I'm tired swollen and ready to get this baby out.

I can't say that I KNOW how much uncomfortable it is when one is full term pregnant, because It's only one who has been through this experience. I can say, however, that i have felt it seeing my wife uncomfortable as we had our baby just 4 months ago. It was really terrible for her but we always managed not to let this feeling overwhelm by sharing and chatting. I had to do also cooking, cleaning and all those stuff while doing my research studies at the same time. It is important to communicate often with your partner. let him know and also try to understand what he is going through. This experience can be over burdening for the father too. Tell him how much you appreciate his efforts and concerns. I believe that he loves you and I believe that his reassurance should come too often to let you feel overwhelmed. By understanding each other, I believe that you can make it a wonderful experience. I wish you both best of luck and pray that you get a wonderful baby. My love for the baby:-)

Hi kamran. How very true. I love hubby's sense of loyalty but the one thing that drives me up the wall is his impatience. Some things you just have to wait for but that's not his strong suit, lol.

I really respect people with sense of loyalty, paidreader! LOL! I think I am too a little impatient person, don't know exactly what my wife thinks about it but I know that she sometimes enjoys it because i never try to cross a reasonable line and she finds warmth in my little impatience.

LOL, I can deal with standing in lines for him, but when he takes me out to dinner and the lines are too long, he won't wait. He'd rather go somewhere else. That can be pretty annoying if I've got my taste buds all stirred up for what we had planned, then the menu gets changed. Always seems to happen when I'm extremely hungry too. ~:0

It's really difficult sometimes to silence the demanding taste buds than to deal with impatience, LOL. I think your hubby enjoys your company more than any other taste, so he tries to get to the table as early as possible, just another perspective,lol.

Hello!My hubby is very sweet and romantic. He knows the way to my heart. I smile and giggle everytime I go online and log on to yahoo messenger as I know he'll leave me some offline messages. His thoughtfulness cheers me up, he buys me flowers all the time, when he goes food shopping he buys me my fave food or drinks.I love surprises and he knows that, that's why he likes giving me surprises from time to time. The thing that I don't like about him is he's stubborn! grrrr! as in big time!! he's smart and knows a lot of things...but the problem is he doesn't listen to my opinion. If I tell him to something or suggest something, he'll just say "yeah yeah" but will only ignore it anyway. Actually there are a lot of things that I hate about my hubby..him always going out with his friends, esp on weekend, him not answering my calls or sms when he's with his friends or not calling back..grrr..it pisses me off big time! and he knows that...but still do it again and again. When he's in front of his pc, even at home, and when you try talking to him? he'll just ignore me completely, as if its just him and his pc in the world!! yes, my hubby is sweet and romantic but he's annoying as well..he knows the way to my heart but he know how to piss me off big time! LOL!! Funny, while writing this response, i'm smiling it made me realize lots of things about my partner. Nobody is perfect as we always say. Everybody has its weaknesses. My hubby may have lots of traits that I hate but those bad traits are nothing compare to my love for him. I love him more than I hate him LOL!! am pretty sure I have some traits that he hates as well. Guess in a relationship and when you love somebody you not only love them because of their nice traits but also you have to embrace their bad traits even the worst ones.*smiles* thanks..take care. cheers!:D

Hello fab315!:-) Thank you very much for speaking out your heart. While, I see some of your complaints about your husband, I find many things that you love about him and the passionate way, you have shared those things. The things that annoy you about your husband are disturbing and I think, I share some of those, though mildly and not as much as you have spoken of. Like, when I am working on my PC and she calls for attention, I request her to let me work but if she asks me once again, I finally have to give up because she is herself very considerate and asking twice means that she really needs my attention. I liked everything you said in your second paragraph. No pair can be exactly same and no body is perfect. When we learn to accept the differences, we find a lot more things in common, that we may have never initially thought. My partner is a unique feature of this world. I don't know, when I'll be able to find something about her that I may hate. We do have differences of interests and personality, but those very differences make me love her more, as they allow me to fill my own gaps. Thank you once again for sharing, fab315!:-)
