      Even though we may be in a relationship that may be near perfect, realistically there has to be something that we would like to change about our partners. And I’m sure they have ideas of what they would like to change about us.
      What would you change about your partner, and would be the one thing you “think” he would change about you?

        • I would change the way he treats his own body.

          He’s had three heart attacks, yet still opts for the unhealthy choices in regards to his eating habits.

          He’s very active now, which helps a lot, but with his history I worry it’s not enough.

          I’m sure he would like to change how often I remind him of how bad his eating habits are, lol.  

          Thanks for asking this question, Della!

        • I would change his pessimistic attitude. He always tends to see the bad before the good. His parents are like that, I guess he “inherited” it.
          I’m sure he would change my nagging! I call them gentle reminders, I’m sure he would have a much stronger name for it!

        • My husband would probably change the fact that I am a little OCD. There is a place for everything and everything has it’s place....Lol!! Also that he is more talkative than me.
          I would change that he isnt in the least OCD (unless his car is involved!). Otherwise he is pretty perfect the way he is...

        • I would change him back into the healthy man he was before his back went to hell.

          He’d probably want me to finish a project before I start another (and another and another).

        • My husband is very easy going and laid back we are TOTAL OPPOSITE.  It compliments our relationship so well because he keeps me from freakin’ out all the time.  If I had to change one thing about him, I would get him to be more sociable.  He hates crowds.  I have quite a few speaking engagements and he would rather not go to them.  

          As far what he would change about me, he would definitelt tone down my personality :)

        • What I would change about my husband, I would make him a more open person, one who knows how to communicate.  We have a huge problem in that category.  I know he loves me, but I don’t think he knows how to express it.  We’ve been married 6 years now, and it has been a hard six years because of this.  He’s not a sociable person at all, so I would never put him in the situation where interacting with others is required, such as a gathering with my co-workers.  I did that once, and it did not go well at all.  I felt obligated to stay focused on him the entire time, making small talk with him because he wouldn’t make conversation with anyone else.  Sometimes I feel at my wits end, but I stay “prayed up” to keep my sanity.

            

          What I think he would change about me—that I would shut up about him not being able to communicate!!

        • Yes, the snoring!

          He would probably want me to be less blabby right when he gets home from work.

        • My husband is just too damn nice. He is so nice that he has done things for his family that almost ruined us financially. I would like him to have a backbone when it comes to his family.

          For me, he would probably like for me not to be so stubborn at times.  

          Other than that, I would not change a thing about him.

        • I would love to say my Fiance is perfect, but alas, I cannot.  I would love it if he were a eensy teensy bit more responsible where money is concerned.  I think he thinks it still grows on trees.

          As for him wanting to change something about me...He thinks I worry too much about finances. lol  I think someone needs to.

        • I know what he would change about me-I’m a bit of a control freak-I hate when something goes off kilter b/c someone else didn’t go through w/ something they promised to do!

          What I would change about my dh-he’s the world’s best son TO A FAULT.  His mom doesn’t treat him well and doesn’t appreciate what he does and always asks for MORE!  Once, just once, I wish he would tell her NO, I WILL NOT RUN OVER THERE AND BRING YOU ‘ABC’ OR ‘123‘, you should have made sure to get it while you were at the market yesterday”
          Or tell her NO about all the rest.  He’s been getting better, but since she’s outworn her welcome everywhere else and w/ everyone else-he tries to please her, which trust me, there is simply no doing.

        • I know this was asked like 7 months ago..but I am new and just now reading It..lol

          What I would change about my husband Is his smoking. yes he smoked before we got married but not as much as he does now. I mean he smkoes like a chimney and I get to the point where I cannot stand seeing ashtrays around the house with ashes. and his clothes smelling like smoke.

          The one thing he would probably change about me..would be that I could drive. I have a fear of driving and I have tried too but It just doesn’t work for me. So I sometimes feel like he gets tired of driving me here and there when I need him too. That Is the one thing I am sure he would want me to do.
