REALLY need your opinion on this!

Which probably says a lot about me right there because it's really not that big a deal. LOL.

So last night my hubby and I were laying in bed. He was watching TV and I was looking at Facebook on my phone. I ran across something that was interesting to me and I said, "Oh, Dom!" He asked me what and then I realized he wouldn't be able to care less about what I just saw. It just wasn't something he would be interested in at all so I said, "Nevermind. It's not something you would be interested in."

He rolled over and started watching TV again.

Am I the only one that is a big deal to?? LOL. He just ROLLED OVER AND WATCHED TV. I couldn't shut my mind down. I kept wondering how in the heck he could just roll over and watch TV. I would NEVER be able to do that. I would HAVE to know what the other person was going to show me, even if it wasn't something I would be interested in. Not knowing would drive me batty. Eat me alive until I had a nervous breakdown. Okay, maybe not THAT bad but here I was driving myself crazy just because he didn't want to know. I knew what I'd just seen. It really wasn't important so there was zero reason for it to be obsessing about.

Still, I couldn't help it. I had to ask, "HOW DO YOU DO THAT???"

He rolls over to face me again and asks "What?" honestly having no clue what I meant. I told him that there was no way I could have just rolled over and watched TV without asking what he'd almost told me, even if he knew it was something I wouldn't be interested in. It's just who I am. Curiosity would get the best of me. His answer? "I trust you. If you said I wouldn't be interested, I wont."


Umm… What the heck?? I trust him too, that doesn't mean I wouldn't want to know. LOL. So I told him that and his next reply was even crazier… He said, "So is this your way of telling me you want me to ask you what you were going to show me?"

Was it? I thought about it and it wasn't. It really wasn't. I kind of didn't want to tell him anymore because I knew he would think it was silly but I still didn't understand how he couldn't want to know. So I told him no, that it wasn't, and explained my confusion again. He laughed, rolled over and started to watch TV again.

And never, EVER asked what I had seen on Facebook. It still boggles my mind! LOL.

So now I'm curious about the rest of you. Do you think this is a guy/girl kind of thing or a nyrae is crazy-nosey and has to know everything, thing? If you were talking to a friend, or spouse and they started to show/tell you something but then said nevermind, you wouldn't be interested, would you completely forget the conversation and mind your own business or would you need to know what it was just for curiosity sake?

Inquiring minds want to know…you know, because Nyrae is nosey and has to know ALL things! LOL.

PS If this kind of thing shows up in a book, you'll know where it came from. It wouldn't be the first time I used something he did in a book ;)

  2. I'm the roll over type. 90 percent of the time hubby will show me something I have to fake enthusiasm for just so I can get back to what I was doing. I'm super grateful when he catches my lack of interest before it happens lol.

  3. Don't worry yourself my hubby does the same thing all the time. I actually have to tell him to look. He doesn't do facebook and he doesn't really care what look at on there. He says if I like it and want to show him just say something. He is always watching a movie on netflix with headphones in so he blocks me out.

  5. oh my gawwwwh, nyrae! this is the cutest post ever! i was seriously like... squeeing all over!

    anyway, to answer your question, i think this is like... only a girl thing, ever. girls are curious things, wanting to know everything all the time.

    my sister and i do this all the time. i'll be thinking about something all day and as soon as i get the chance to talk to my sister, i'll prompt it, second guess it, and say, "never mind." then, she'll get all crazy on me and follow me everywhere asking me to tell her whatever it was i was going to say. and guys, maybe like 10% of them will bug you until you tell them but the rest, they are probably just like your hubby. "okay *turns back to whatever had their attention*" ;p

    i do the same thing you do, too. if someone was going to show/tell me something and said never mind, i'd go crazy. i'd guilt trip them and say something like, "gawwwh, i hate when people do that. tell me they're going to tell me something and then say never mind!" which... works often times. my mom hates it, too. there are times when i'm about to ask her for something but right before it comes out, i say never mind and she goes, "what?! just say it!"

    anyway, i feel you!

  6. I would be totally interested but then again I am really nosy. I tell my husband things all the time that I know he'll have no interest in because I want to share them.

  7. It's a male/female thing. I think men are trained to ebb and flow with our fluctuating curiosity. but in the same breath, if the roles were reversed....and it was something that didn't involve sports....I'd be all over it! Of course this would rarely apply to female/female friends saying forget it! If that were to occur, get ready for a whole new way of communicating with "humpfs" and "just tell me".....Yeah, let's face it...us females need to know....

  8. If it was my husband I'd probably roll over and be fine. Just because he looks at stuff on FB that I could care less about and usually he's the one shoving it in my face making me look. LOL. But if it was someone else I'd probably have to know.

  10. I think it's a boy/girl thing. But the funny thing is, my partner always wants to show me stuff, then I look and it's about baseball or sound equipment and my eyes glaze over. When I see something I find amusing, and know it won't be funny or even interesting to him, I never show him, even if I'm giggling away. The kids always want to see though...

  11. Yes I would absolutely have to know but my hubby does the same thing that yours did- MEN! LOL

  12. This totally made me laugh. And I'd want to know too. Just like everyone else said, it's probably a man/woman thing. Very normal.

  13. HAA HAA! I think it's boys. They're just not as naturally nosy. My husband would've done the same thing, esp if it was on facebook, he thinks that's going to be the downfall of society. And when that speech starts up, my eyes glaze over.....

  14. I love Jenny's answer best. I think it's more a people thing than a gender thing. I like knowing things but if someone says never mind I just might not bother myself. But I do like knowing things so don't think I'm as laid back as your dear hubby.

  16. Honestly, I am like you and I would have to know. It would drive me crazy to think that he knew something I didn't, regardless of what it was or even if I would care. He put it out there into the universe and really, if it matters to him then I would want to know anyways because, even if I really don't care, it matters to him, therefore by default, it matters to me. ;)
