What is the one thing youve been hinting ( or even blatantly asking for) that your S/O just doesnt seem to get the clue about?

  • general. I won't hint, I'll flat out tell him I want it, and I get the response, "I know." GRRRRRRRR

    Also, a Dyson. I've been wanting one since I got one for my mom for a year's worth of holidays. I've been waiting for my husband to get me one...his response, "I won't get you a vacuum for *whatever holiday* because its a household item." ITS NOT A FRIGGIN VACUUM, ITS A FRIGGIN AWESOME SUCKING MACHINE. That also deserves a GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

  • Well, I had another baby a few weeks ago, and I did hint around about The Husband Person taking the other kids out of the house for a few hours so I could just have some quiet time with the baby, but by "hinting" I mean I said "Hey, how about you take the kids to see Rio or something?" He still didn't get it.

  • Many men can't take hints. SO is one of them. I have to be blatant and specific to him. He has no clue to intimacy and I'm getting tired of explaining it to him. I think he really knows but doesn't want to listen! He thinks it's all about him and no one else. That's getting old

  • just about seriously when they ask what you want for a special occasion and you say ohh a ____ would be nice and they still dont know what to get you.........or when i look at something and say ohhh i want that one day...specially a Locket to put our sons picute in sure it still wont happen because i dont say "hey this is what i want on this day" i just think they are a little slow in that department
