My Man

I saw this over at Shalee's Diner, and it sounded's everything you ever wanted to know about the love of my life...

His age: 37

How tall is he: 6'1" (to my 5'2")

How long have you been together (married): 6 years, 3 months, 8 days and 23 hours and change...

How long did you know each other before you got together?: We met in May, started dating in September, were engaged by the following August, and married in November…so, we dated for 10 months and were engaged for 3 months.

What physical features attracted you to him first?: Well, the first date we had was at a pool, and I IMMEDIATELY noticed how buff he was…man, those pecs and shoulders and arms and abs…ooh, baby!!

Eye color: Blue, blue, blue, blue…did I mention that his eyes are BLUE!

Hair color: Um…what hair is left is blondish brown,

Hair style: VERY Short – he cuts it himself about once/week

Normal Outfit: Lately it is holey (and I mean holey) jeans and a t-shirt while he works on his train. For work, it’s slacks and a mock turtleneck…the boy WILL NOT wear button down shirts

How did you meet: At work. I started about 6 months after he did, and we were both supervisors on 2nd shift. He was VERY quiet, and I really didn’t even meet him for several months. Then we started ending up in the cafeteria for lunch at the same time and we started talking…and then we started seeing each other at the gym every day…and then we started hanging out, and it was ALL OVER!

How serious is it: Oh, it’s serious! I couldn’t live without him!

Are you "in love": More and more every day.

Do your parents like him: Yep. They thought he was kinda quiet at first, but they LOVE him now…he’s their kid, too!

Do his parents like you: Yes, they do, but I know they don’t agree with everything that I do…and I hope they don’t think that I have been a bad influence on their son. Even though I’m a Christian, like they are, we are from different denominations and they don’t agree with all the beliefs I have…and now that their son has (but not solely because of me…I mean, he does have a mind of his own). Anyway, there are some times of tension, but I know they love me anyway!

Do you trust him: With my life.

Would you share a toothbrush with him?: You bet. But, he won’t let me NEAR his toothbrush…I don’t get it!

Would he let you wear his pants?: Not unless it was some kind of crazy emergency…

Do you have a shirt of his that you sleep in?: Hmm, that’s a good idea, now why didn’t I think of that??

Do you like the way he smells?: Yes. Especially when he puts on the cologne I gave him….yummy!

Can you picture having kids with him?: Definitely…now would they just hurry up and get here? He’s GREAT with kids….he’s going to be a great dad!

What bothers you the most about him?: Well, there is this one thing….he waits forever to open his mail…I get the mail every day, and it’s not very often that he gets something specifically for him, but when he does, it’s something important, so I’ll take it to him and he will set it down and not open it for days! It drives me crazy!! Ok, remember when you were waiting for that acceptance letter for college, and as soon as you got it, you ripped it open?? At least I did! B probably let it sit for weeks before he even touched it! So, it’s not a huge thing, but it drives me crazy…and I don’t dare open it for him.

Does he have a temper?: Yes, but I’m not sure he had one before he met me. He did pretty well at holding it when we were dating, but I’ve seen it many times since! =)

Are you happy to be with him?: Absolutely!

Does he embarrass you in public?: No, but he does do funny things sometimes when we’re out…like asking the hostess for a table for his daughter and himself…as he puts his arm around me (and he’s only 5 years older than me). I think it’s cute!

Does he smoke or do drugs?: He smokes cigars...the ones he rolls himself!

Does he have any piercings?: Not anymore, but I often ask him to tell me the story of when we got his ear pierced in college and was so daring as to walk into his dad’s church with a hole in his ear….after the reception he got, the earring came RIGHT OUT! LOL

Any tattoos?: Nope, but he talks of getting USMC tattooed on his shoulder, but I’m not holding my breath…he’s afraid of needles!

Does he have any scars that you know of?: Oh yeah! Where do I start?? The most noticeable one is on the side of his head. He got it when he was in the Marines…they were roughhousing in the hall…soaping up the floors and running and sliding…and he slid his head right into a door frame…the scar is about 4” long! There’s a scar on the back of his knee where he backed into a barbed wire fence. And there’s a scar somewhere from when he fell through the plate glass window in high school math class.

Is he a Party dude or Stay at home?: Stay at home all the way. But, he’s gotten to be more of a social guy the longer we’re together.

Is he Outgoing or Shy?: Not so much shy, as just stays to himself. He’s completely content with himself. He’s also quiet when he first meets people, but if they give him a chance to open up, he’s hilarious!!

Does he love his mama?: Of course he does. He is very respectful of his parents.

Would he hang out with you and YOUR friends?: Yes, he does. Of course, when there are too many girl friends around, he chooses to go elsewhere…but we have fun hanging out with couples that we’re friends with.

Sing?: He’s a great singer, but he doesn’t let me hear him much….only in church if I listen very closely.

I can't see how he could wait to open REAL mail! Whenever I get one, I have to tear into it too.

And he sounds like a great mate for you. I love hearing WHY each of us are attracted to our spouses.
