In your currant relationship; Who's more positive thinking? You or SO?

Definitely my husband. I wouldn't know what to do without him. I tend to have a bit darker outlook on life.

  • SO is too optimistic. Sometimes I think he ignores reality but it balances us out!

  • Yeah my husband too. But I am sick of the "I will try" because him trying is like me saying I will grow a beard. While some women can I can't... lol

  • My husband, definitely. He's optimistic to a fault. It's hard to get him to help me deal with difficult situations sometimes. lol

  • My dh is a total pessimist. I've spent a fair amount of time over the past 25 years pointing out that he is often coming to conclusions with absolutely no information.

    He often says 'he probably doesn't want to' which I point out is not only insufferably rude, but is dictatorial: it is not dh's right or responsibility to decide for others what they do or do not want to do, and he is restricting their freedom every single time he chooses for them.

    When our youngest dd went to Britain by herself (at 17) he spent the whole 17 days in a panic filled dread... which means he wasted 17 days of his life that he's not going to get back, worrying about horrible things that never happened to anyone, certainly not to him.

  • Well years ago it was my S/O, but for some reason I think the roles have chgd some and I seem to be now. Maybe bec of my grief therapy (which he didn't need,) I learned how to deal with things differently. I also heard once that men and women chg in their roles disposition wise as they get older, if true then we're right on schedule.

  • I am. Since having our son, my husband has been REALLY working on it and I would say 80% better in that area.
