View Full Version : Are you and your partner alike or opposite..
Do you love socialising whever he s a 'home buddy'?
Are you an optimistic and him a pessimistic?
or are you very alike?
In some ways we are, and most ways we aren't :lol:
We both like socialising, but neither of us goes out that much. I love visiting different places, museums etc, I have done since I was little. But he doesn't, he says its boring :pants:
He likes gory/horror films and I can't watch them at all, they make me too :scared:
Basically most things in general :lol:
Spellbound, you sound like me and my h2b :lol:. He likes boys films (as he calls them) and I can't watch them, especially gory one's, but he is more than willing to sit and watch a chick flick with me :smile:. We both love socialising even though we don't go out often either, we both love to go for a couple of drinks to the pub and enjoy just sitting in a pub garden. We both spend hours on the computer :oops: but he is very pessimistic and I am optimistic, although I wasn't before I met him. I think it's because he is pessimistic enough for both of us, so I have to try and stay strong.
All in all I think we are like the majority of couples. We have lots of things in common but we also have lots of diagreements.
He's been depressed so long I can't remember what his real personality's like:lol: But as far as tastes go we're scarily similar - I've never met anyone who 'got' me so well.
When we first met we were very opposite, but have become more similar as time goes on. I was very typical rock chick wearing lots of stuff with holes in and huge boots. He was very geeky :oops: and was into playing those stupid role playing games with his friends (sounds dodgy to me :lol: ) he looked like an explosion in a washing basket and was wearing very scary bottle green trousers and a colour change tshirt he had been given for his 18th birthday (he was 27 then)
He likes sci-fi, I like films that make me cry.
He's teetotal, I like a glass of wine or 3:teehee:
He talks constantly and I like a bit of quiet now and again
He likes taking alternative routes while driving 'too see where we end up' where I will sit on a blocked motorway because theat's the only way I know.:doh:
So yes, I think we are quite different but we don't argue that much
We are total opposites! I'm a natural born uptight pessimist, hubby is very laid back & optimistic (maybe it's because he's an Aussie?)
I'm horsey & a qualified football referee, he hates horses & footy.
Most pastimes we both enjoy, but personality wise, we're poles apart!!
Works for us though!
:grin: OH and I are very similar. We are both home birds and dont go out very much. We have the same opinions on most subjects and very rarely disagree or ave arguments. In fact I cant remember us ever arguing.
DH & I are complete opposites but I think we compliment each other very well.
I am a driver- I push for the best, don't settle for less. I am a leader, an organiser, I like to be in the middle of things. I love attention & talk too much about me! I can be hot headed, emotional, irrational & jump in with both feet- not always for the best.
Dh is amiable- he sits back & listens, he is calm, collected, methodical, sensible, he prefers to observe rather than participate, he would rather not make a fuss, he stops to think.
He calms me down & I push him to better himself. Together I think we meet somewhere in the middle! I am not so "both feet" anymore & he is much more confident. Before we got together he had been an Assistant Manager for 5 years. Within a year of being with me he had his own pub :wink:
dora the ex...
we are very similar,we like similar things and get along really well like propper mates...sometimes i think we better mates than we are as a married couple :oops:
In some ways we are quite similar - both born worriers, like socialising but equally happy with own company, very loyal and honest, both don't like causing conflict and complete perfectionists.
In terms of interests we are compleetely and utterly different - I like gardening, reading, cooking, fashion and he likes football, golf and darts.
somehow it works....
We are quite similar personality-wise, both fairly easy going, generous, love to socialise. We also have very similar values and beliefs (which I think is important).
But, our tastes are totally different - he loves scifi and action films and reading fantasy and scifi - I'm more of a weepie/classics kind of person. He watches loads of stuff on Sky which bores me to tears and he hates me watching Big Brother. He's a real carnivore whereas although I do eat meat, I could easily give it up and tend to go for the veggi option more often than not.
We rarely argue though -at the end of the day we agree on the important stuff and what tv programmes we like doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things!
Mrs N x
Id say me and dean are totally different
I think im outgoing and speak my mind, i think i am very honest and if i have a problem il say
where as dean isnt that outgoing, and gets embaressed easily and doesnt no what to say when meeting new people, he hates confrotation, and says i can be to honest sometimes if i have a problem or something.
We have different intrests too
I'd have to say we were complete opposites.
I'm quite quiet, shy and boring. He can be quite wild, loud and extremley unshy!!
He likes having a good time whereas i'm happy to sit around being miserable :oops: he drinks a lot, i don't touch a drop. He's asleep by 9pm every night and i'm up til the wee hours.
He wants to have sex in the mornings me in the evenings.
He drinks coffee, i drink tea, he likes savoury, i like sweet!!
In fact i think the only thing we have in common is Lucy :oops:
I think we are totally different on the whole scheme of the things which is starting to become a problem. I am very hard working I believe in hard work - I see it as the only way you are ever going to achieve soemthing in life! While he is of the ill get what i get and only get it for nothing.
He would screw the system within every inch of its life for example with car insurance - which annoys me alot - he is third party at his brothers address. He cant accept the fact that he can not afford insurance or a car right now for that matter- so would rather be illegal and get into debt over it!
The minute he gets apid he has no money left while i get £300 pounds less than he does a month and I always have more money than him.
He likes to get bladdered - i do like a drink but not every night of the week - because it is scene as the done thing to do and the only way to have fun!
We disagree on politcal views - he is very much for using violence/force to get what yeh want while i will always be a pacifist as i see two wrongs dont make a right!
He is very much more optimistic than me - he has a very care free nature. He would describe me as an extreme pessimist, while i would tend to disagree and say im a realist!
He loves wasting money doing cars up while i enjoy watching cars getting crashed for example formula one etc...
And like he rings me from work and expects me to initiate the conversation. I am a quiet person generally and i observe rather than say anything as i suspect that most ppl find me a melter but there yeh go and he knows i hate talking on fones but prefers to call rather than txt....
Hes annoying me at the min. lol - wouldnt guess like would yeh lol
DH and are total opposites but we share the same values if that makes sense. At our wedding our best man said that, on paper, we should never work but that we did!
DH is calm, quiet, shy, introverted, studious, patient, careful and hardworking. I am loud, stroppy, impatient, reckless and lazy!!!
We share the same family values though and 99% of the time we agree on all aspects of how we bring our daughter up and what our aspirations are for the future.
Well I think we're alike enough not to kill each other, but different enough not to be bored with each other :lol:
I think in the most trascendental things we're very alike: the things we want from life, the way approach things, we even share political opinions :teehee:, we share the same family values and come from similar backgrounds too, and had some very similar experiences when growing up (despite this being in two different continents! :eek: )
But we're different in other aspects too, like I'm very very optimistical (sometimes unrealistical :tongue: ), and he thinks that if he's not stressed out, it's because he's forgetting something :brainache: So I guess we balance each other here.
Also, we have totally different tastes in music, movies and food (he prefers sour stuff :yuck: ), but it's not that important in the grand scheme of things!
Mr S is much more loud and outgoing than me. He believes in himself 100% and is v determined, whereas I'm quite shy (at first :wink: ) & get insecure easily. He's impetuous, cheeky and a bit of a rascal, but that's part of what attracted me to him. He's got loads of energy and a sports fanatic whereas I'm more artistic and a bit of a dreamer. Like some others have said, we share the same values and goals & find it very easy to be in each others' company. He's not into traditional romantic gestures, which bugs me sometimes, but the important stuff he does well & I can't really complain cos he moved from the other side of the world to be with me.
What about you, Soreya?
Definitely the same values ect..
similarities;we are both 'home people' and are happy staying at home cooking, reading, talking, watch a movie and behaving like a couple of 80 years old...
We work in the same field and love discussing about everything for hours...
both love travelling, different cultures etc...
we rarely drink..gosh, we re both quiet borring I guess
differences;different backgrounds,I m shy but for the first 10 mns, then there s no way to shut me up whever for him, it s a life sentence..
He s romantic,I m not really..he says 'make love':teehee: I say 'have sex'...
He loves outdoors activities,nature and would love to live in a country house in the middle of nowhere with our 15 :shock: kids, grand-parents,brothers and sisters...with no TV whever my fitness routine is going from shop to shop and I like big cities,can t share my home with others, 1 child is enough for me and there s no way I ll throw MY tv out of the window..
In an argument I have a short temper and can scream like a mad woman..he always remain calm.
I am more outgoing, daring and argumentative, I can often speak before my mind and end up saying the wrong things...he chooses every word carefully,drives me mad!
In some ways Mr Paddy and I are total opposites I don't really drink at all where as he does. He is very uptight and law abiding where as to me rules are made to be broken!
In many ways we are very much the same we like the theatre, books etc etc
Enough is different to make it exciting and enough is the same so we do things together.
He still refuses to argue with me though just to wind me up even more and even worse its usually when he is right as well..... Git
We are completely poles apart in almost everything. I think it keeps things interesting :wink:
