    Friday OT - Why are you a pain to be married to/live with/date?

    I had a discussion with my husband earlier this week about the way I would guess I am most annoying to live with. I try and analyze and logic everything. Best way to load the dishwasher? I have a researched system. Buying a new house? I had a spreadsheet with multiple criteria and a weighted metric for each. I research everything, and try to apply logic to every situation. I took one of those online psych assessments recently regarding personality type, and it said I don't need or seek out romance because it isn't logical enough for me. This is a huge pain in the butt when he just want to know what to do for lunch.

    What are your cohabitation issues?

    I put sports ahead of getting almost any household chore done. I take a long time to get tasks completed if I'm not interested in doing them.

    I leave my shoes laying around. And I am always wanting sex.

    Edit: I don't think those are problems. But this is what my wife would say.

    Re: Friday OT - Why are you a pain to be married to/live with/date?

    I'm stubborn and deep down, I'm fairly arrogant (IE I believe my method/approach to anything is ideal), and within the confines of my own life/home I don't tolerate different approaches well.

    My wife is the same way.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I NEED things put back exactly where they belong, and I determine usually where that spot is. (unfortunately)

    My wife says that I am noisy but not real talkative. I moan, groan, grunt and break wind often.

    Re: Friday OT - Why are you a pain to be married to/live with/date?

    My wife likes knick-knacks and I need things to be organized so we fight about that.

    I don't like movies because I am impatient and she could watch movies all day and I too try and apply logic and reasoning to every decision instead of letting myself be entertained or go-with-the-flow.

    I sit on my duff all day and she is a teacher so she is running around on her feet all day. When I get home I want to do something and she just wants to sit around.

    In movies and TV shows I'll comment if something is not logical. For example, last night there was a credit card commercial where they slid the card in the machine upside down just to show the card name. I said "I could never sign up for that company because this is blatantly incorrect." So yeah, I over analyze and it makes her/people mad.

    I'm really bad at small talk. My wife will try talking with me about her coworkers and things they do that annoy her. I can't even pretend to be interested. I'll listen. I'll nod my head at appropriate times but I can't give any good feedback. It drives her crazy.

    Re: Friday OT - Why are you a pain to be married to/live with/date?

    I too am organized. I hate clutter. A house in disorder makes me agitated. I work with chaos all day and feel really good if I can come home to nothing to do. It doesnt even have to be the whole house. If I had one room where I could retreat to without a mess I would be fine. I get kind of dickish when I dont get that. She probably hates it.

    Pretty much exactly this for me as well.

    I think a lot of us on this site are probably bad small talkers. I can't stand small talk. Put me on stage in front of 500 people and I'm fine. Put my in a room with 10 people and I clam up. Unless it's women - I can talk to women 100x better than men.

    Re: Friday OT - Why are you a pain to be married to/live with/date?

    When it comes to things like picking a restaurant or TV show I keep asking my wife the same question until I get the answer I want. She then inquires why I even asked in the first place.

    She can't understand that I'm giving her the opportunity to have the right answer.

    If you were talking to my wife, she would say that I take forever to make decisions. And I do, if they are monetary ones, which I don't feel is really a problem. And I snore.
