Reasons to Love (or Hate) a Woman with OCD

1) I will never get bored of thinking about you or being with you. Because I’ll think about you. A lot.

2) You can be sure I’ve thought this* through quite intensely and obsessively. [* refers to anything and everything]

3) When I get angry (or hurt), I clean. And clean thoroughly.

4) I may respond to you in list format.

5) Sometimes I need to kiss more than once or rearrange our hands until it “feels right”.

6) Did I mention I will think about you? A lot?

Reasons to Hate a Woman with OCD:

1) I might be a teensy tiny bit slow (to change) and perhaps a mite stubborn.

2) I’m particular and careful in my wording; I use a lot of qualifiers. Which comes off as being non-committal.

3) Sometimes I have to check things over and over to make sure I did it right. This can make me late or be frustrating to onlookers.

4) I may respond to you in list format. And I may not be derailed from said list.

5) Perhaps kissing or hugging more than once because I need it to “feel right” might begin to annoy you.

6) Certain things gross me out (that may seem very normal to you) and I will obsess over them.


That said… being loved by a woman with OCD doesn’t have to be a negative thing. My hope is to someday find someone who loves me for me, quirks and lists and all.

    what is not to love about us?
    quirks are perks!
    surely the right person knows that

  3. I check the front door about five times every night before I go to sleep. I’ve also been known to turn back halfway to wherever I was going to in order to double-check if I locked the door, which I checked several times before even leaving the building.

  4. See, that 2nd list isn’t really a deal breaker, I reckon. You’d go through anything for the one you love. Well, almost anything. Maybe not endless reruns of ‘Blue’s Clues’ or anything. We all have our limits! 😛
