- I’m not affectionate—My wife says I’m not very affectionate. Apparently, there’s a difference between be affectionate and being horny. Who knew?
- I don’t listen—My wife says I don’t listen to her, or something such nonsense like that.
- I have anger management issues— This one isn’t true. I don’t have anger management issues. I just have a low tolerance for idiots.
- I’m a slob—No one knows they’re a slob until they get married. I thought I was a free spirit.
- I look at other women--I reminded my wife that’s how I found her. I reassured her I would never sleep with another woman; not a wink.
- I mumble—My wife says I mumble. I think her hearing is going, but I dare not say anything. She would accuse me of mumbling.
- I have a unique sense of humor. I discovered this when I would laugh at somethings and my wife would not.
- I’m too aggressive AND too defensive. Apparently, there’s a very narrow zone between being too aggressive and being too defensive. I need to learn how to occupy that space.
- I’m self-centered. This is another thing I discovered after I got married. As single person, I only worried about myself.
- I’m not as smart, as good looking, as funny, or as sexy as I think I am. That’s odd because those are the very traits that my wife found attractive when we dated.
You don’t really know yourself until you must share yourself with a significant other. Then you learn the truth about you.
