    Nothing smutty and cycling is way too obvious so go ahead with any others…

    Sci-Fi – I love, she does not.

    All soap operas are the other side of the coin!

    Bonus – more for you then!

    My wife really hates technology – and can’t see the value in getting a shiny new 42″ LED telly! I think she’d rather go on holiday 😀

    General geekery. If I see something that interests me I HAVE to know how it works. If she sees something that intreasts her she has to buy it.

    The taste of food. I could spend hours in the kitchen on a meal, making it taste just how I want it. She’ll then come through and pour vinegar/heinz ketchup/horseradish over everything.

    Adventures. Holliday have to be pre planned and all incusive and involve sun loungers.

    OBVIOUSLY I wouldn’t change my better half for the world.

    However, it can be annoying that she really likes watching films together, but we don’t actually really like any of the same films… She likes light fluffy rom coms, I like proper films 😉

    I’m quite happy to go sit and read in the Library while she watches Love Actually or Strictly British Bakery, but apparently that’s not on 🙄

    I wish my wife enjoyed snowboarding as much as I do…she went on her first holiday and struggled a bit and I felt horrible most of the time because she was doing it for me.

    The next one is not her fault…she is alergic to animals (cats & dogs) and I’d like to have a dog or a cat. She loves sausage dogs, but can’t own one as she won’t be able to breath, she doesn’t want to pick up poo, and she says that we’ll never be able to go on holidays.

    Maybe if I borrowed someone’s sausage dog she’d change her mind!

    I think that it’s mostly the other way round in our relationship. There’s loads she likes but I don’t!

    Tea and any other hot drink for that matter.
    She’s perfect other than being incapable of putting the kettle on!

    Should’ve been a deal breaker, but she swung me round.

    Nothing that I can think of. She’s pretty open minded and willing to try absolutely anything.

    Yeah my wife doesn’t like hot drinks either (apart from luke-warm chocolate).

    Nor fizzy drinks.

    In fact the only fluids she drinks are water, hot luke-warm chocolate, Robinsons Summer Fruits juice and (VERY occasionally) whiskey/brandy with orange juice, Strawberry Mojitos and Pimms (with flat lemonade).

    Nothing at all. It feels kinda like that Red Dwarf episode where they all meet their opposites.

    We are both Lister.

    Tool. Red wine. Shameless. Sheds. Lie-ins. Late nights. Tofu in yellow bean sauce. Documentaries. Nudist beaches.

    I wish my partner liked getting anal.

    I mean, it doesn’t take long to put the knives in one tray and the forks in the other… and it’s not hard to make sure all pictures on the walls are straight.

    Sadly she doesn’t share this point of view. She says I shouldn’t get so anal over things.

    +1 physical activity,

    Something as simple as a walk requires borrowing a dog otherwise she can’t see the point.

    Don’t understand it myself, cold, dirty and uninviting.

    Nothing cold dirty and uninviting about having all of your books in alphabetical order.

    My wife has recently (in the last couple of years) begun to appreciate different bicycles, partly as a result of the nice Pashleys we can see through the window of the LBS, but she is not naturally inclined to appreciate triangles the way I do.

    Also coffee and beer. She is more of a tea and wine or cider person.

    Otherwise, we’re good. 8)

    Mountain biking/hiking as she has, what is to me at least, an unreasonable fear of:

    getting lost/crashing/mechanical breakdowns/rattlesnakes/bears/cougars/
    coyotes/no cell service/lightning storms/heights & cliffs and generally the myriad of things that “could” go wrong.

    I have tried to help overcome the fearfulness, but have learned to just acknowlege it and go on about whatever is at hand–bottom line though, is that I wouldn’t trade her for the world as she puts up with me, day in and day out.

    Pubs

    I used to be a proper soak, now I’m not. But I’d still like very now and then to just go the pub and have a pint of an evening and a chat instead of sitting in the front room with the telly on.
