Relationship Protocol: What Are Your Significant Other's Strange Habits?

Relationship Protocol: What Are Your Significant Other's Strange Habits?

We've talked about our own bad and nervous habits, but what about those of the people we spend most of our time with? Sometimes it's our significant others who have even stranger habits than we do, even though they might find them quite normal! I'm sure you can easily rattle off a few of his unique mannerisms so tell me ladies: What traits or strange practices does your significant other possess?

my boyfriend has number two issues. He can't be wearing a hat. also, he can't be wearing JUST socks.. "cuz thats just weird". Either wearing shoes, or just barefoot. and wow he gets excited when he can bring in the new sunday ads to read!

My boyfriend doesn't have very "strange" habits, but he hates, absolutely HATES wearing clothes lol. He does have the gross habit of picking his nose when he's thinking about something. He just does it absently, but it's really gross sometimes.

I don't know if this is so much a habit as an aversion, but my husband cannot eat anything with bones in it. He'll eat it as long as he hasn't seen the bone at all - totally weird - but uniquely cute!

Yikes! Some of these are seriously kinda gross, it's amazing what we'll put up with when we love somebody, huh? My boyfriend is pretty clean, actually obssessively clean, except in the kitchen. He does the grossest things in the kitchen! I'll go to open the microwave and there will be a plate of food in there from god knows when because he was just "saving it for later." I've tried to get it in his head that if you have leftovers and you want to eat them in a few days, put them in the fridge! And we have a garbage disposal, but instead of putting his discarded food down the disposal he'll just leave it in the bowl or on the plate and hide it under rinsed off plates, so that when I get around to washing the dishes I have to rinse out his soggy gross food thats been sitting in the sink for a few days. That smell is enough to gag me just typing it here! Plus, he can't pour a glass of juice without spilling some on the counter and leaving it there. I swear, sometimes when I come home from work my kitchen looks like a herd of teenage boys were there. Drives me nuts!

I love how quirky all everyone's men are! I mean...AHAHAHA, those really made me laugh!lickety split, I used to be like your husband. Until I was like 15, I had to rinse a clean cup out like three times before filling it to drink, and when my parents would bring me water, I would quiz them to make sure they did it. I got in A LOT of trouble for that!My boyfriend bites and scratches the skin around his nails until they bleed...He has a major gas problem, so he farts every ten seconds or so, and he insists that he does it bare-assed with his butt hole shoved into my bed sheets or comforter. I guess I worry about poop smears or poop coming out because he says he farts so hard sometimes, he almost poops himself. He also doesn't shower for days, and probably only brushes his teeth once or twice a week. Thank goodness he doesn't have serious BO or grease problems, and his teeth are barely yellower than average. My boyfriend also burps fairly often, and they are SOO DISGUSTING. I don't know why, but I think burps smell worse than farts!

My boyfriend picks at scabs and sunburns, and then he eats the skin. I've never actually SEEN him do this (well, he picks at scabs all the time, including mine, but I haven't seen him eat skin) but he's told me he does it. I was thinking it was gross, but then I realised that I habitually bite off bits of the inside of my mouth and eat it, so... I'm just as gross as him.

When i read these posts I keep thinking how everyone has these gross habits, and I'm such a clean freak I imagine going over to one of your homes and drinking out of a "dirty orange juice cup" or walking across the toe-nail-laden carpet.... it freaks me out!

my boyfriend doesn't think that glasses used for orange juice need to be washed. so he'll have a glass of orange juice, rinse it out and put it away. So when I want a glass of water I have to wash the glass to get off the orange pulp that is still stuck to the side.

My bf turns the water on whenever he is in the bathroom, even just for a quick smoke. I am very enviromental conscious, so go figure how insane his water wasting drives me...

i just found out my bf chews tobacco. i didn't know people did that anymore but he is a country boy from texas and says people do it there all the time. to be frank i was grossed out, but he assures me he doesn't do it on days he knows he's going to see me. i keep telling him... mouth cancer! he's trying to quit so that's good, but right now he goes through a tin a week. YUCK!

Hmmm if anything I'm probably the one with the strange habits, hahahaha. I'm really OCD about where things go and how my clothes are folded.

linb, my BF does that too. I can't stand it, so don't feel bad you're not alone. Thankfully it's not long enough to be noticable. BUT I notice it! He also can't stand it if I fold his jeans/pants/shorts with the back pocket facing inward. Like the butt of the jean has to be on the ouside?? Have NO clue?
