    lolol.. I think all nurses are attracted to the bad boy with agood heart that just need a little tlc plus you kind of have to be up for anything with a woman that carries syringes in her pocket and and has seen more private parts than howard stern.. My boyfriend still gets mad at me when i explain that he imports and exports computers... (the correct explanation is that he works for one of the biggest manufacturers of electronics and handles the carribean and south american territory) sometimes i feel like i don't understand what anyone else does but yup he's quite and borders on OCD opposites attract and by nature we need someone we can nurture by the way did i mention he's a hypochondriac

    Well I have to say right now we're pretty similar in that we both work together and both drive fork lift trucks (at the moment), both love our kids and use them as an excuse to have a good laugh.... but we are different in one respect I CAN actually find a pair of socks in the morning without having to ask someone else

    My boyfriend and I are actually pretty similar. We like a lot of the same things and we're both fairly nerdy. We both like videogames and nerdy movies and such. We have similar tastes in music (although we both like some stuff that the other doesn't). One difference is that he's still in school and I'm (recently) out. We both hate cleaning. We both like learning useless facts. I can't think of any huge differences.

    my husband and i both grew up in the same kind of church, we were on rival football teams in high school, he has to talk to everyone, i wave and go on, we are both licensed ministers, i yell, he's quiet, i read, he watches tv. i do hands on, wood working, tools, home improvement, he does not, i do car maintance, he don't have a clue how. i love harley's, he could care less, i drive a 4X4 pickup, he drives a compact car, i'm a huge redneck, he hates it. i'm for farming, he's lost. i grew up country, he grew up preppy! i wear jeans and flannel, he wears suits and ties, i'm a nurse, he is a funeral director/ restaurant mamager. I tell people, I help them till they're gone and then he takes care of them. i cook he cleans, i'm sloppy, he's a neat freak. We compliment each other, what he can not do, i can, and vice versa!

    He is 17 years older than me (I figure it takes them that long to mature!)
    I have only been a nurse. He has been a soldier, pastry chef, nurse, disability worker and educator.
    He likes all music except 80s pop
    I like harmony, but I'm slowly learning to like Jimi Hendrix, some of the heavy metal; you'll never get me to like opera or blues
    We are both mad about computers.
    We both love animals, and enjoy having wild animals around our home (goannas, frill necks. ibis and a variety of wild birds).
    I love to read, he doesn't.
    He's Scots, I'm Australian born.

    Basically, I've found that the longer we've been together the more our interests have become similar. In 15 years they should have.

    Me: Graduating in May. Will be a RN and eventually FNP.

    Fiance: Software Engineer with hopes to be an entrepreneur.

    We've got tons in common, but he's definitely more business-oriented... the common sense of the relationship, lol. I'm the book smart one. So... I guess we complement each other.
