If you could change ONE thing about your SO ...

post #1 of 21

... what would it be? No cheating; you have to pick just one. I'm not one who thinks you CAN change anyone, but if you could ...

There are a few things about him that would make my life easier if they were different (tendency to be a little negative, night-owlishness, ADD, etc.), but if someone really gave me the one-wish thing, I'd say to take away his pain. He has bone spurs in his neck and/or fibromyalgia (fibro symptoms are probably caused by the spurs), and he is in near-constant pain.

So, anyone else? Come ON ... I know there has to be SOMETHING.

Oh, geez ... ONE thing ? Errr ... hmmm ... Gee, I guess I don't have anything I'd change ! Or maybe I do ... , although this would definitely be something he has no control over, is that I wish he came with a different family !

The one thing that would make both of us happier is if he'd had the money to go to college, instead of going into the Navy for the GI Bill. He's been in four years tomorrow, and the long distance and deployments have been rough on both of us.

Make the same money, but in a profession that only requires 8 hours a day (he's a truck driver).

I'd wish for my husband to be less passive-agressive. Drives me nuts sometimes. But then, I'm just plain AGRESSIVE! LOL! I'm Italian, what can I say?
Being a billionaire wouldn't hurt either!
Juuust kidding!

I'd change the fact that he's a figment of my imagination into him being real!

Not possible? Ok, then I'll have to continue dreaming that my perfect man is out there!

I wish my Maxey didn't have to work so he could act full time. He is so talented and such a great actor, it's a shame that for now he still has to do a full time job as well.

But that's not something about him as a person that I would change, (I know, cheating a little).

He does have the odd tendency to BE COMPLETELY PERFECT!! It would be good if he could change that....lol

I think the main thing would be fixing Dan's tendancy to leave spreads and milk out on the bench to get warm after he uses them - he never puts that stuff back and it freaks me out!.

I wish Jeff was more romantic. He is a wonderful guy but flowers and stuff like that are very predictable. On Valentines Day...I wish he was more spur of the moment romantic....and I guess it that's the only thing I would change I'm doing pretty good!

He is the most negative person I know. It can drain the energy right out of a room.

Bradley is the most wonderful person I have ever met . The only thing about him I'd change is the one thing no one ever will...I wish he didn't have Type 1 Diabetes .

Dennis is an absolutely wonderful man...I just wish that he could find a job that he enjoyed with better hours! More of a career type job. Then we'd actually get to see each other!

And the worst part for me is that my husband is a caterer and would never leave the condiment or anything out at his kitchen or a clients house. He cleans everything up and puts away. At home though he leaves the cabinet and refridgerator doors open and whatever he got out of it on the counter. Maybe I should tell him that the health inspector may drop by our house too.

I still wouldn't trade him for all the tea in China.

There is a health related thing that I would love to change but I don't like to post personal stuff...

But besides that, I wish that he could just be calmer and relaxed, not just with me but with life, I'm always scared he's going to pop a vein in his forehead or something. I just think he would be happier that way.

This is so tough...one thing...If I could, I would make him pee sitting on the toilet. Now everywhere just at home, because honestly cleaning the rim of the toilet...i can't take it. I made him clean it once, and he was kneeling infront of the toilet and kept saying "oh I can't do this" and I felt so bad for him...but honestly perhaps if he sat on the toilet it wouldn't get this messy

I totally agree with that. Keith (the bf) repairs and builds chimneys and his days can be 12 to 14 hours long, leaving him tired & cranky a lot of the time. It's good money, but I keep telling him it's not worth it and he should try something else. He's a born salesman, I wish he'd consider that!

I wish Shy wasn't such a work-a-holic. He starts at 7am and doesn't usually stop until 7----and then he has to do his workout. He gets home around 4-5pm but he's always planning, plotting, and researching after he's home. With me working and being in school, I rarely ever see him

Sounds like mine, same job, same habits!!

Some days though, I WOULD trade him for the tea!

Come on Cind, you know you wouldn't trade Charlie for anything.........

Now as for Jerry, let's see........I'd change his forgetfulness. I don't know how he gets through his day!

That's probably the one thing that Shawn would say he'd change about me. In fact, I was going to put "forgetfulness" down on the "personality traits you'd change about yourself" thread, but I forgot.

I'm not kidding.
