    My BF won't eat anything with bones in it, or anything that reminds him of the original animal it came from. It has to look uber-processed.

    He also doesn't like the randomest foods, and is extremely untouchy. (hates being touched)

    He also collects computers from the 80s, and loves everything to do with the 80s. >> He was born in 91.

    Does he like to read? If so, I highly recommend the book "Ready Player One" for him. It's all about computers and the 80's... I LOVED that book.

    My BF is stubborn as heck, and it annoys the crap out of me sometimes.

    My BF is always using his cell phone (texting, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc). Drives me crazy, but I love him.

    I have never accidently taken a drink. I did try the stuff once...never.again.

    I'm probably a handful of girls that really don't like to cuddle in bed because I don't like being touched that much.....and maybe your BF just wishes he was born in the 80s. ;)

    Hmmm... these are my quirks, I guess!

    Pomodoro = plain tomato sauce
    Marinara = tomato sauce with seafood
    Bolognese = tomato sauce with ground beef
    Sunday Gravy - tomato sauce with different cuts of meat (lamb, pork, meatballs, beef), cooked all day.

    The only quirk about BF is his noise tolerance... he loves to play guitar - and I love it when he plays acoustic - but he really loves to rock out on electric, which I hate but don't say anything because he's having a good time. But if I break out my sewing machine, he complains about the noise :rolleyes:

    You know the lids on fountain pops? With the little round bumps?

    [​IMG]

    My hoosband has to pop them. He can't not do it. He will even reach across the table and pop the things on my pop. If I keep my pop out of reach to the point where he can't pop them, he gets twitchy and antsy. I love it! :lol: :wub:

    Mine has to pack every thing in ziplock bags when we go for holidays and take 3 hours to pack for a weekend trip. Everything has to be nicely folded and every space ultilised. it is like a ritual.

    I told mine he has some kind of intellectual disability when using textiles. lol. He dresses himself like a toddler - imagine a toddler pulling his shirt over his head - that's him. He is constantly putting arms through the wrong holes, etc. I once watched him put on his zip-up hoodie upside down so that the hood was at his butt. Blankets are worse - he can't seem to manage to cover himself up before bed and there is always this ridiculous fight of him getting himself all twisted in blankets before getting settled. I just don't understand why it's so hard. lol.

    I have my own quirks, but my husband is very strange (said in a loving way). :)

    He can't stand to touch toothpicks or wooden spoons (has an irrational fear of splinters).

    He is highly sensitive to the crunching sounds of other people chewing things like chips, ice cream cones, ice ... he wears noise-canceling ear buds at work because an office mate crunches ice and hard candy. He has a hard time not commenting to me when I "crunch."

    He has recently stopped wearing denim pants, he only wears chino-style pants because of the way they feel.

    He can't STAND if someone sings along to a song.

    I'm my own weird-o. And, he is my favorite weird-o!

    I'm laughing at the different sauce thoughts...in the NYC area, it's often the following

    Pomodoro = Chunkytomato sauce
    Pasta pescatore or Frutti di mare= pasta with seafood red sauce
    Bolognese = tomato sauce with ground beef And ground pork and veg
    Sunday Gravy - tomato sauce with different cuts of meat (lamb, pork, meatballs, beef), cooked all day.
    Marinara-'smooth', non-chunky red sauce
