My lover has two bad habits.
1) Snoring
2) A tendency to wear tracksuit bottoms in the evenings and on the weekends. As far as I'm concerned the only mollyfing thing in that regrettable habit is that they are not shell suits. [In a friend this wouldn't bother me, but in a lover it does, because it's unattractive damnit].

I can understand that it's comfortable, but it doesn't look very stylish and damnit Mars in Libra is not wooed by sloppyness.

So I am trying to wean him from this by showing a great deal of enthusiasm for the fine figure of a man he cuts in proper trousers and how sexy it is.

It is possible he is starting to thik I'm a nutcase [the strange looks he has been giving me suggest this], but it's the only way I can think of of being diplomatic and gentle while still achieving my purpose.

Although I'm open to hearing other suggestions [except "but it's not important how people dress, it's just what they have inside that counts" as that line of conjencture is heretical, and CLEARLY WRONG and I'll have no such trash polluting the fine principles of this lj]

Yes!
Although in Britain tis a half-hope, but we have been promised a freakishly long hot summer. I am hoping for the appearance of fetching shorts.

I snore, and can recommend Boots homeopathic snoring remedy (a throat spray used before bedtime) as a counter.

i think i'm roughly two months older than you
Fussy but fair, which may be the finest combinations of traits known to Mars. ;)

good use of it for you as a lawyer-in-training.

Poke him so he turns over? Nasal strips from boots?

Strap apples to his back so he must lay on his side?

Useful, i know.

I think the apples idea may work on more than one level, as then i could usefully just nibble them if i get heartburn in the night.

snoring is not too bad because i'm getting used to it, and he stops if i move/make a noise [or sigh, if he snores hard enough to wake himself].

but the tracksuit bottoms! *weeps*

Suggest that he walk around in undies instead so you can better check out his bottom.

He he.

WELL, I once had issues with a man who's hygiene wasn't terrible, but could have been better. I tried positive reinforcement, by pouncing him every time he came out of the shower (all naked and warm, who could resist?). I didn't reinforce it often enough, but I'd say, something like that? Positive reinforcement and patience? Sounds close to what you're already attempting...

oh man i've done that/am doing that too. [*mmmmmm, honey you're all clean that's such a big turn on!] he probably thinks i'm some kind of water fetishist.

Mwahahahahahahaha!
He made the mistake of forgetting a pair of tracksuit bottoms in my room this morning. THey are going to be hidden in some dark safe place at the back of the wardrobe.
I plan to pick them off one by one.

Surely yellow tracksuit trousers must exist - when's his birthday?

Traitorous Antichrist!!!

You can give him the tracksuit of your choice as long as you also give me sedatives to cope with the effects.
