So, Valentine's Day is looming and three years in a row, I have been able to hold down a boyfriend! (It's been the same boyfriend for the last three years too). Shocking I know! Even though there are many lovely traits to Dave, I don't want to talk about the things I like about him, I would rather tell everyone what traits I dislike about him instead.
(How we look at each other on most days)
Number 1: Dave's favourite past time is to wind me up! It is very, very easy to get me wound up and he does certain things, to get a reaction out of me. For example, like when we are in Morrisons when I am looking around, he picks up random items and starts pretending he looks interested, or puts on a timer on his phone, as he thinks I spend ages in the store.
Number 2: He finds it hilarious to sing at me "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt" (don't ask me why). Trust me, it's so irritating, especially when he tries to sing it right in my ear hole!
Number 3: I like a good dispute (argument), but Dave is the opposite. Dave doesn't play along and stay's so calm and passive, which just makes me even mad!
Number 4: He loves a lay in, when I am of those strange morning people. I have to entertain myself on the weekend, which can be dull. I may also try to wind him up so he gets up but that never works!
Number 5: Dave doesn't have the same appreciation for Ru Paul Drag Race or Gossip Girl, which to be honest that would make me doubt his sexuality.
Number 6: His cooking skills let's say are lacking. The only thing he has made for me, since we have been together for over two years, is a toasted turkey rasher sandwich. He personally thinks that I should be pleased but I am hoping that one day I will wake up to a full cooked English breakfast.
Number 7: He never wants to clean the bathroom, or doesn't think it is important to polish, so I am left to do it, unless a cleaning fairy was to come and visit.
Number 8: Dave is obsessed with my mother's cat Mya. So much so, he has a whole photo album on his phone dedicated just to her. He also asks for weekly videos of her meowing and says "I wonder what Mya is up to?"
Number 9: He doesn't like to eat Japanese food, and he won't even try it!
Number 10: The last thing that bugs me about Dave is that he puts me in my place and he rarely lets me get my own way, unless I make a song and dance out of it!
Having written all these pet hates of mine, Dave is a top boyfriend! (though I don’t like to let him know that, as his head won't fit through the door). He puts up with my diva like habits, makes sure that I receive roses on Valentine's day. On the odd occasion, I get a bunch of flowers without having to ask for them. Dave likes to see me happy and has a lot of patience. Sure, he isn't perfect (who is) but he is kind, thoughtful (most of the times, always room for improvement), hilarious (though I hate to admit it) and I think he is a bit of alright.
Sometimes we make an effort to look good..
