Your pet peeve with your partner?

I think most people have at least one thing about their partner that gets on their nerves now and then - no matter how good the relationship is. If you do, what is it? Is it a big problem or a little quirk? And does your partner know about it?

For us its a few little things but we both tell each other what bothers us.

For example I hate when my boyfriend eats cereal and he leaves his bowl on a counter/floor/couch and doesn't rinse it. It makes it harder for me to wash with the cereal glued onto the bowl.

He hates when I leave water in cooking pans and leave them in the sink. So I try to be careful.

There are a few other things but we just sort of nudge them off and move on.

Her giving me oral. When she does it is sooo good, but it mat be two weeks in between. She knows my want's but I think she really does not like to do it. Just a small problem, after 20 years she finally made me come doing oral so it is getting better every time she does.

Makes me enjoy it that much more.

Sometimes Sigel dismisses what I say and feel as being unimportant. He is learning to stop that reaction but it gets old real quick. To be fair he IS working on it very hard and we've had some really good discussions but ya at times it can get me all fire and claws.

With Arch it's his fear of trying new things...across the board. oddly enough he is quite willing to try new things sexually but in other areas he is so timid. He, too is working on it and Sigel would be quick to point out that it's a trait Arch and I share.

When I'm trying to have a conversation with him and he gets distracted by the TV or starts making funny faces because he deals with uncomfortableness by laughing. It's gotten him in trouble with more than just me in the past, lol.

Sometimes he gets pee drops on the floor.

I can't describe the fierce anger that seethes in the very core of my body when I stumble upon pee drops on the floor at 8 in the fucking morning.

LOL, my ex-husband did that! And the floor would be cold, hence the pee drops would be cold. ew. ew ew ew.

My biggest current one is that if he can't find anything to do past like 9 pm, he just goes to bed. The kids are asleep, and he's not a big tv watcher so he'll just go to bed when I still think there are at least 3 hours of useful time left in the day. GRRR.

My bf is very.... forgetful. He's lost his wallet 3 times already, his phone a number of times, and gone through like 3 iPods because he left them in pant pockets and it got put in the washer. I think it's his ADD that makes him so scatterbrained, and sometimes yes, it can be too much when I ask him to do something and he forgets and it never gets done a week later.

I'd have to say my biggest pet peeve is his truck. "Just an engine rebuild". OK, we were looking at about $2,200. I can deal with that. But $5,000+ and a new tranny later, the thing still needs this and that and the damn kitchen sink to be running properly! He loves his truck and I'd never force him to get rid of it, but it's a money pit.

His need to plan almost everything to the smallest details. Its a tiny issue and I honestly find it endearing most of the time...but it makes being spontaneous very difficult. Other than that... Nothin.

Thinking that just because something excites the hell out of them then I must swoon for it! Or the opposite making fun of my kinks because they aren't interested in them. The worst comes when they assure me that my kinks are silly but their interests are mature and sexy. *Eye roll*

My man is not very expressive, about much of anything. So sometimes it's very hard to know how he's feeling about something. Thankfully he's aware of it and works very hard to express himself, even if it's just verbally.

Sometimes I have to remind him that sometimes I need him to express his feelings to me, which can get difficult. But, he's working on it!

If nothing else, it makes it that much more special and meaningful when he does express his feelings to me, 'cuz I know he means it that much more.

It kind of annoys me when he calls me cutesy names in front of people. I feel fine with it if we are alone, though. I haven't talked to him about it, mostly because I have no idea how to tell him it's annoying.

When I'm trying to tell a story and he interrupts me ten times. I'm very forgetful and get sidetracked easily, so when I get interrupted it's like I have to take a few seconds to remember what I was saying. Plus, it makes it seem like he's not interested in what I'm saying.

Hmm. What else? Oh, he has to have the TV on when we cuddle at night. He doesn't like the silence. I do. And of course, when the TV is on, he pays more attention to it than me. It just annoys me.

Otherwise, he's a perfect gentleman.

There are a few, so I'll list them:

-Disobedience
-When she says no
-When she starts to tell me something and then either forgets or trails off and decides to not
-When she takes too long to respond

There are things that she does other than these that are not simply pet peeves - they're irritations, aggravations, and complete problems most of the time. But we deal with them and try to make the best of what we have. We've been working on it.

Mine has got to be those evil video games. I enjoy them from time to time too, but it still drives me crazy how completely he gets sucked in. He will stay on them for days upon days and seemingly forgets everything else (laundry, dishes, eating). I understand needing to concentrate on a game but for that long? And trying to catch his attention to ask a question? Not gonna happen. He acts like interrupting his game is the end of the world. A life or death situation.

I had hopes when we first met that he might grown out of them (even just a tiny bit), but after meeting his family it's clear that's never gonna happen. His brother and father and exactly the same way. :'(

Seems so completely common, but still crazy making.

Hmm, this is kind of difficult because I tend to like quirks and such. Having said this I can think of one thing that gets me rather frustrated every now and then. My bf is very shy around large groups of people even though one on one or in a small group he is incredibly hyper and talkative (seriously you can't shut him up!). Now I am pretty much the same, although I'm not quite as shy as him, so in a large group of people we just sit there all awkward arguing about talking to someone. Very cute, but very frustrating!

My boyfriend and I are both pretty soft-spoken, but he has this irritating habit of saying something and refusing to repeat it when I ask him what he said. I'm perfectly aware that what he said probably wasn't that interesting or important, but I can't stand not knowing!

It also irritates me that he'll drink Monsters, Mountain Dew, and whatever other caffeine source he can get his hands on until 2am, then complain that he "couldn't sleep last night" and think he has a sleep disorder. No matter how many times I explain to him that caffeine can affect your ability to sleep for up to six hours, he never seems to grasp it.

I love candles, he doesn't so much. Always whines about the smell and his allergies.

He procrastinates, I don't.

He doesn't turn on the fan or won't spray some freshner (his allergies again!) when he takes a really stinky dump that stinks up the surrounding rooms. Once it even permeated upstairs! Drives me and the kids crazy.

Other than those, he's a great guy!
