We’re both losing our hair. He wonders if I’ll still love him when he’s bald. I was most happy to be able to tell him that it was only hair…:-) 3 years ago

Many men have some work station in their garage. Many men spend their time repairing something in the house, building some shelf, wiring some circuit…
But not my man. He’d rather pay some other guy to do the job.
And spend the time hugging me in front of the TV. 5 years ago
We move around as in move from place to place every few years. We have lived in Rochester, NY. We have lived in Jaén, Spain. Now we live in Stuttgart, Germany. And we will probably move to Italy next Summer. Not forgetting France as our home base, and me coming from Singapore. And we have travelled quite widely, both individually and together.
It is fortunate that we both enjoy discovering new places, cultures, cuisines, languages etc so much. His career will not be hindered by any lack of desire on my part to move, and my nomadic tendancies have been satisfied ever since I met this man. 6 years ago
as much as I do. We spend alot of time talking about food, preparing, looking for and tasting it. It is a bond. 6 years ago
I never thought I’d marry an Engineer. They are square and boring – in my mind. I have always preferred Doctors, Lawyers and Academics (preferably in the Humanities). When I see a cute guy in white, I still get a little tingle, but well, just a little :-).
But when I met my hubby (who’s one French Engineer), I must say that it is interesting being with someone who’s different. He brought a different perspective into my life and I hope I did the same to his.
We do not often look at things the same way, we may even get into verbal fights over them, but a test of wills and opinions here and there is good for the mind. We may even learn something new at the end of the day.
I am often criticised for lacking motor skills; I think he’s insensitive at times. I am into little details, he’s very much a big-picture guy. He’s very Cartesian, I’m more Holistic :-). I believe in ghosts, he doesn’t. He has to eat salty first then sweet and never both at the same time. I love mixing up everything including adding Sprite into my wine.
And of course we come from different parts of the world and grew up with different cultures and values. He’s from Mars and I’m from Venus :-).
But at the end of the day, even though we are very different people and scream at each other very often because of that, we have similar goals in life. We both like to travel, learn languages, cook, eat, make love…We are both perfectionists, ambitious and go-getters in our own ways, we like old houses, hot and spicy food and we love our babies.
He travels alot for his job and I have left mine so that I could manage our household. Life is made of compromises and choices. Differences should be celebrated and then adapted to suit our lives.
Give and take – such a simple and wise saying. 6 years ago
They say that behind every successful man there is a woman.
I hope of course to be the woman behind my hubby’s success.
It has never been my ambition to marry a rich man. But it was one to marry an ambitious one who will one day make it rich (actually “successful” is more what I’m looking for) with me.
We are not there yet, but the important thing is that we are working at it, and learning many things about ourselves, the world and life along the way.
Maybe we are not really looking for wealth, but just to make a success of our lives. Work, children, health, marriage…there is much to work for. And we’ll need quite a bit of ambition to bring all to fruition. 6 years ago
We are spending 3 weeks in Florence this summer.
And will be saddled with 2 mothers most of the time.
His mother wants to tag along for 2 weeks. He sighed and then said yes.
Then he looked at me and said that I should maybe bring my mother along for the last week since we’re at it. And he gave up his Air France miles and got her a return ticket from Singapore – on Business Class. Her very first time on Business Class, she’s really happy! 6 years ago
No, I’m not referring to his sex. Not this time.
I am referring to the way he is tough on people in general. “Cassant” is the word in French. He is critical, difficult and demanding. On others and even more so of himself. This frightens and upsets many people, but I look upon this as part of his charm :-). And he keeps me on my toes.
I guess in a way I am like that too. Complimenting people only when you mean it suits me fine. I treasure sincerity and accountability.
But having said all that, he could be a little sweeter more often. Sometimes I forget to be strong and then I’ll be in need of praise and compliments – more than usual… 6 years ago
They say that when you can fart freely in the presence of the other you’re in love or at least ready to live together :-). 7 years ago
Je pense donc je suis.
Nothing turns me on more than an intelligent man. Reasonable, rational, thoughtful, articulate. He believes only what he sees.
I try to soften his edges by injecting a more holistic approach to things, for I do believe to a certain extent that everything is connected to everything else/that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. That sometimes if something cannot be explained, it does not necessarily mean that it does/can not exist.
Doesn’t always work, he thinks I’m nuts at times. But a brainy man is a sexy man – to me at least :-). 7 years ago
He has generously accepted my son and made him his own. 7 years ago
He cooks really well, taught me much of what I now know. And he loves curries as much as I do :-) 7 years ago
