What is your partner's most annoying habit?

I know we can all make a list of the things that annoy us about our partners, but if you had to pick just one, what would it be? The thing I find really annoying is something that annoys me about anyone, not just my husband. He will be talking about some personality trait and then say, "Women like it when..." or "ALL women are like..." or "All women do..." For example, he has it in his head that every female's favorite colour is pink. Every female likes it when they can dominate the man. Every female is happy if she thinks she is always right. Every female thinks every male is always wrong. Women rule the house and should never be argued with. These of course are the obvious ones. He comes up with some pretty remote generalizations. All women drink alot of water. Women love to shop (I HATE SHOPPING, and have made this clear many times). All mothers want to spend every waking moment with their children and will pick the children over the spouse anytime. Part of this, I know, is from poor self esteem. His mom was a very domineering woman. I try to be affectionate and understanding and flexible but if I present him with the opportunity to make any sort of choice, no matter how minor, he is pretty much resigned to the fact that I will do whatever I want anyway. Can you understand why this annoys me? Tell me about your partner's annoying habits.

He has a few, but the top two are as follows...he's lazy for one, never picks up after himself, and it just drives me insane! Also, he's not the expressive type..he barely ever says i love you, doesn't really show it, like i'd want him to show it, although i know for sure , that he does love me, he's just not the romantic type,and if often bothers me.

My husband is not expressive in the ways that I would like. It's about the same as teaching them what you like while being intimate. You have to tell them and show them everything. Men are soooo high maintenance! ARGH.

What I hate most about my partner is that he jealousy is his last name. Whenever I'm with my male friends which he also knows he just can't stop himself from getting jealous and it can be quit suffocating already. Plus, he thinks that you're doin something wrong or you're cheating on him even if you're not.

Jealousy is really hard to deal with and it's not a fun trait. I have to admit I have a little jealous streak. My husband is always noticing the females OUT LOUD. According to his children and his mother he has always been this way, even with his ex wife and his ex fiance. Hmmm, I wonder if that is part of the explanation why they are "ex"?
