Is your dh sunny natured ?
LovelyYellowLabrador · 06/08/2022 09:16
You know upbeat happy
DenholmElliot1 · 06/08/2022 09:18
Mine was yeah. I'm divorced now (for other reasons though). I couldn't bare living with anyone who is a misery to be honest. They will drag the whole house down with them.
dudsville · 06/08/2022 09:21
Yes, we both are.
CowPalace · 06/08/2022 09:23
Yes. I’m a doomy pessimist. I tend to hope his optimism is justified.
SaharaSahara · 06/08/2022 09:29
Hmmmm this question really got me thinking, with me he is but not with the kids, makes me sad tbh. Wish he was upbeat with the kids too.

His nature is very sunny but he can still be a bastard knob cunt. I'm the miserable one. Hopefully he keeps putting up with me. If I was with a misery it would be awful 😁
LadyCatStark · 06/08/2022 09:42
Oh god no, quite the opposite 🙈.
hippoherostandinghere · 06/08/2022 09:43
Christ no, Mr doom and gloom here.

ExDH was miserable and negative and always saw the worst in everything. It was infectious in the end; I’m a natural optimist and sunny by nature but by the time I left I was so utterly flat.
Now DP is a ray of sunshine, playful by nature. We have more fun together than I could ever have believed possible. Life is amazing! Both of us have down days but we lift each other up instead of dragging each other down ❤️

Mine is naturally but can get very quiet and pessimistic when stressed about work or family - he finds it hard to express any worries or talk things through so just sort of stews on it and becomes like a big storm cloud is hanging about him! Luckily he’s becoming less stressed with work these days
Mydpisgrumpierthanyours · 06/08/2022 09:51
I think my username will give it away but nope not at all. Especially in the mornings takes him a couple of hours to wake up.
Good job I love him anyway and just take the piss out of him being grumpy
CornishTiger · 06/08/2022 09:51
This is such an interesting thread.
no he definitely is not. It’s exhausting
ColinRobinsonsfamiliar · 06/08/2022 09:52
He is actually.
Rately does he get down and he isn’t a complainer either, he never moans about stuff.
He is really good company actually.
Just wish he would wipe a kitchen surface every now and again and move the fucking drill that’s been dumped on my dining room table for the last fucking week.
BrutusMcDogface · 06/08/2022 09:53
Getting grumpier as he gets older 🙄
maranella · 06/08/2022 09:55
Sometimes. He can be a bit of a grumpy bastard at times and is prone to catastrophising, but I'm a fucking ray of sunshine and the kids and I can usually jolly him out of it. Either that, or we take the piss out of him for being such a drama queen!
Forgothowmuchlhatehomeschoolin · 06/08/2022 10:01
Depends which way the wind is blowing🤣
Workinghardeveryday · 06/08/2022 10:02
Sometimes he can be
JanisMoplin · 06/08/2022 10:03
He used to be until he turned 50. Plus his current job v stressy.
iknowimcoming · 06/08/2022 10:06
No and I despair atm, on holiday recently (lovely place all inclusive) constantly complained that the staff who brought drinks to your sunbed (yes you read that right) didn't come frequently enough, ranted most of the way home about the roadworks on the motorway, last night he was cooking dinner whilst constantly shouting at the hob for apparently being useless and badly designed, I could go on I'm trying to find the right moment to suggest some therapy as I'm not sure I want to be with him much longer
Stylishkidintheriot · 06/08/2022 10:08
Nope, he’s a bit on the grumpy side.
he’s still the kindest man and best husband though. But he doesn’t smile often
Blossomandbee · 06/08/2022 10:10
No, he's like Victor Meldrew.
ChagSameachDoreen · 06/08/2022 10:17
My DH is a sort of joyful pessimist, like Larry David.
I couldn't bear someone too upbeat.
Elsanore · 06/08/2022 10:22
My DP has terribly low self esteem but is incredibly generous and kind and positive about others. He is a massive cheerleader of me and the dc, and others generally. He is very talented at music and gets a lot of pleasure from that. He's lovely to be around. I try to big up his self worth as much as I can all the time.
I am gregarious and jolly but prone to anxiety and short bursts of frustration. We complement each other very well.
FlippinOmicron · 06/08/2022 10:22
No. I call him Victor ( after Victor Meldrew of One Foot in the Grave )
WaitingForWinter1 · 06/08/2022 10:22
Yes, he is. He whistles and sings around the house, and nothing seems to bother him much
