Name one thing your boyfriend does that really drives you up the wall.

    I've been complaining all day to my coworkers about how my boyfriend loves to play with his BlackBerry during dinner dates.

    I swear. I'm going to break the fucking thing.



    I guess that for the purposes of this post, "boyfriend" can refer to anyone you're romantically involved with.

    That is very rude. Throw the fucker out the car window (the blackberry not the boyfriend). icon_twisted.gif

    My partner channel surfs which drives me bonkers. My dad used to do the same thing.

    My husband's a channel-surfer, too. Hate it!

    Ugh, it's the picking up after him. I don't know of any man in a relationship - gay or straight - that contributes less around the house. We used to fight about it all the time, but I just came to accept that it's one of his flaws (just like I'm sure I have 1,000 habits and quirks that drive him crazy). So I do TRY to let it go, but sometimes I long for the days when we lived apart.

    Sleeping with everyone he lays eyes on. It was fine for the first few months but now it is getting on my nerves. Oh and not putting the toilet seat down.

    Oddly enough, my hubby tells me what a slob I am, but I get this from a guy who breaks out the Q-Tips to clean the keyholes. Make of that what you will...

    Still, the thing he does that REALLY pisses me off is that he asks me to massage his feet, but never ever reciprocates.

    I am going on strike, by God!

    It says you are single in your profile! Not putting the toilet seat down is a real bummer (pun intended). I have on occasion forgot to look and damn near fallen in!

    I am getting better on this front. I am not really messy, but my partner is a clean freak. Part of the problem is his keen sense of smell. He also is very organized. The only thing I find odd is he leaves me to put dishes in the dishwasher, and then proceeds to re-arrange them before the dishwasher goes on. He complains I don't maximize the space. Very strange.

    With the exception of his numerous flaws, my partner is perfect.

    That is one of the funniest human quirks I have ever read. I can imagine him as an older person. They say your eccentricities get worse with age.icon_eek.gif

    I like to think even my flaws are near perfection and make me more lovable. Like my ability to recall just about every friend's birth date (past and present friends), but not where I left my house keys!

    Or my frequent collisions with just about every doorway or piece of furniture in the condo because of the way I walk, or my occasional forgetfulness in picking up my sweaty underwear from the closet floor after working out (my partner tells me that I left him a "present" in the morning), or my ... icon_biggrin.gif

    What really pisses me off is my partners steadfast refusal to exist!

    Text messaging in bed while I'm trying to sleep. click-click-click!! Drives me crazy.

    Making a mess in the microwave and not cleaning it up (a day after I cleaned the microwave thoroughly)

    Leaving clothes lying around on the floor, used plates and glasses on the coffee table etc.

    Insisting on starting a job (like laundry) and then dropping it in the middle, which I have to finish.

    Bathroom issues: Not flushing after #1 and leaving the toilet seat up. Leaving huge jobs of toothpaste on the porcelain in the sink and hairs from shaving.

    Every time we go out he asks the same thing "Are you buying?"

    But like others have said I probably just have as many flaws.

    I would have to say it's playing with the Iphone while were at dinner. He doesn't do it all the time because he knows it drives me crazy.

    Second would have to be picking up after him.icon_evil.gif

    Eating slowly! I admit that I may eat a little too fast, but even when I consciously slow down I'm still done before him.

    After 14 years there are a few more minor things, but that would be getting petty!

    hahahaha a few of us seem to have guys who can't put their phones down to have a human conversation for five minutes.

    maybe we should hook them all up together for dinner and record. icon_twisted.gif

    The phone. Always on the phone. Sometimes he grabs my phone when he's on hold on another and then tries to juggle two calls. Can't "take a message."

    I don't care if he picks the skin off his feet... but don't do it when I have to feel the couch shake as a result.
