I've been trying to figure out his type for awhile but none of the descriptions really grab me.
He's highly aware of how he comes across to others in a social setting. He makes conversation easily, knows everyone, meets everyone, great with introductions, genuinely interested in others and doesn't play games. He tends to have his eye on the door when we're at a party, to see who arrives next, who else is interesting to talk to. He talks about things like sports and politics and whatever other people want to discuss. He's funny but sometimes oversells the joke if that makes sense. Hard to explain. If he gets a good laugh from a joke, he'll repeat it again and again in different groups of people. He loves it when people think he's funny but it doesn't always come easily. It's hard for him to sit still unless he's really tired or sick. He's always up doing stuff. When we go to a party he can't stop himself from helping serve, helping clean up, this extends even to taking down the tables and chairs at the very END of the party (long after I have lost steam and need to be in bed!).
He likes having regular contact with people he likes and respects and without that, he can become unmotivated and a bit sullen. I would describe him as sometimes irrational (which is too bad since I'm irrational also!) and I often find myself having to be the rational voice at certain times in our relationship (which is okay--it's good practice for me, LOL) but this mostly shows itself when he's hungry or tired. He has this weird blood sugar thing where if he doesn't eat for awhile he gets really grumpy and tends to fly off the handle about little things. He has zero patience for things like doorknobs falling off, children whining or fighting, his mother making demands on him, etc. But he practically glows when he is able to check several items off on his to-do list. He'll spend the next hour patting himself on the back for all that he accomplished. He's great around the house with regular non-emergency tasks--does the laundry, changes the sheets on the bed, does the dishes, etc.
He loves to read, has a strong interest in intellectual history, philosophy and religion. Loves sports, he's pretty competitive in all areas. Doesn't have a lot of hobbies other than reading and hanging out with the kids. He used to run a bit, now he's playing more tennis. He used to play soccer.
He hates driving in traffic. He detests it and would rather stay home. He doesn't like to drive at all unless absolutely necessary to get from point A to point B in the most efficient manner. (I used to want to drive around for fun when we were first dating/married and he thought that was nuts.) Another weird thing about him is that when he's talking about some place, he needs to know that I know *exactly* where he's talking about. He'll ask me if I know where it is (say, a restaurant or a particular house) and if I say "no", he'll keep on giving me landmarks or talking about the surrounding streets and he thinks that info will be enough for me to locate that place in my mind. Of course this doesn't work because I don't pay as much attention to that stuff as he does. Sometimes I will lie just to move the conversation along and I'll say "okay, I know what you're talking about" but then he expects me to really know where the place is and he'll test me by making other references to the area until I'm forced to admit I don't know. He gets disgusted with me for not being able to figure it out after all the time he just spent helping me picture the place in my head. LOL
He's flexible--he'll do what I want to do, watch the movie I want, take me to the opera even though it's not his favorite, etc. He's not stubborn. He wants a picked-up house and a clean kitchen but he's pretty good about not nagging me about it all the time. He claims that his desk at work is a total mess so he's clearly not neat about everything, only some things.
With any big decisions or changes, he needs time to get used to the idea. He's easy to persuade if given enough time.
Can anyone venture a guess?
