I read a lot about spouses/partners who have differing views on what environmentally friendly means and how far they will go to reduce their impact on the environment. Joe is not nearly as green and I am but he does try and he goes along with mostly everything I suggest. I say mostly because there are some things that he gives me the side eye to. When we first started dating 5 years ago I never really thought about his 'greenness'. I had many things on my 'list' but for some reason the environment wasn't on there. Or maybe it kind of was? I doubt I would have dated someone who drove a huge ass SUV or who refused to recycle etc etc. But I didn't not date Joe because he drove a pickup or because he always leaves the water on when he is in the bathroom or because he goes through more kleenex/toilet paper than the Duggars.
So that makes me wonder. Do people consider the environment when picking a mate? How much of a priority is it? Is it right up there with sense of humour, nice abs and 'won't run away screaming when I fart in front of you' OR is it a nice to have like 'won't leave socks in a pile on the couch', 'can fill a dishwasher' and 'likes Indian food'?
