These are some of the strangest realizations couples had when they moved in with their partners. For seasoned lovers, sit back and enjoy the laughs. For new couples, heed this warning before co-signing that lease!
I Don’t Cook
Ideally, cooking should be split between both partners. You shouldn’t expect to be cooked for, and neither should your partner. You both should want to cook and share a meal with the one you love. Well, u/Togepi23’s partner found out the hard way that she would rather starve than cook herself.
Looks like you two will be making a lot of instant ramen noodles and ordering take-out in your relationship. Ask for a double side of veggies to get the nutrients you need.
These Cats Ain’t Loyal
We have all heard a dog is a human’s best friend but does a cat fall into that category too? No. They will turn on you instantly, especially if someone new comes into the picture. That’s exactly what happened to this Reddit user when their cat left them for their new partner!
One minute they were purring on the owner, the next, they were purring on the new person. They may look cute while sitting in your lap, but know their allegiance lies with the flavor of the month.
Running Out of Toilet Paper Fast
Different people go through toilet paper at different rates. Apparently, for u/NoahtheRed, women go through it quicker than men do.
He picks up toilet paper anytime he goes to the grocery store because even if they aren’t out now, they could be very soon. If it’s this big of an issue, you should invest in a bidet. They are much cleaner than toilet paper and will save you a few trips a week to the grocery store.
Playing video games is one of the most common hobbies today. It allows people to let off some steam, escape from their world, and unwind after a long day.
But, some couples are surprised by how much their partner actually plays, like u/Carolinecbg. She thought it was a myth before seeing it with her own eyes. Here's a pro tip: try finding a game you both enjoy and maybe unwind together!
Nothing to Wear!
You might be a person who has an outfit for every occasion; others might have three shirts and call it good. u/SensieNemo found out her husband is in the latter and keeps the bare minimum amount of clothes: seven pairs of underwear and seven shirts.
We are all for living within your means, but it’s nice to have the option to change outfits without needing to wash anything, right? u/SensieNemo, you could always buy him more clothes and sneak them into his dresser if you want to save on washing this week.
Take Your “Me” Time
Alone time is great. It allows us to check out for a while, read a good book, and recenter ourselves. However, when people move in with their partner, that alone time can fly out the window. Now, an additional person is constantly around, and sometimes that can feel suffocating.
Luckily, we can take a page out of u/OperativePiGuy’s playbook and communicate that with our partners. Chances are your partner wants alone time too!
Being a dog-lover is often regarded as a big plus in the dating game. However, being an avid dog-dresser is a little more polarizing.
Perhaps it was lucky for @thepeterfalk's partner that he only discovered her love for canine couture AFTER moving in together. We do wonder if he gets a say in the outfit choices...
Honey, Where Are My Keys?
If you haven’t lost your keys at least once, bravo to you. For the rest of us, it’s a constant battle, especially if we are running late for an appointment.
We swear we left them right on the counter but end up finding them in the pants we wore yesterday. Well, it seems that u/JohnyUtah_ gave his wife yet another ring after their engagement and wedding. This time it was a keyring!
We should all take a page out of a feline's book and indulge in a daily cat nap. For u/novagirl0972, her partner sleeps a bit more than most.
We are wondering if she married someone who was part cat. Maybe check if he likes milk and purrs when you scratch his head. If he does, then he is definitely part feline.
Farting in front of your partner requires a certain level of comfort. At the beginning of the relationship, you want to keep that air of innocence with your partner, so you both sneak away to release the pressure. Over time, however, you start releasing that pressure in each other’s company and are sometimes surprised by how loud it is.
u/Bruzman101 described his girlfriend’s gas-passing as a “rectal battle cry. The kind that instills fear in an enemy and pure bloodthirst in an ally.” We don’t want she is eating, but we are glad he still loves her even after her battle cries.
What Is a Laundry Hamper?
The laundry hamper has been around for a while. We're surprised that u/Mainelymackenzie1820's partner still doesn't know what that is. We guess the American Education system is worse than we thought. There is hope, though; he can be trained.
Picture references are a great place to start. Show him pictures of a laundry basket, and give him a treat when he correctly guesses it. Good luck with your training.
If you live with a man, and wonder, "why did he leave the mail on top of the microwave?" or "why is my package under the couch pillow?" u/Kelstay 207 is wondering the same thing. Maybe it's because they woke up and chose chaos, or maybe they simply forgot.
The partners we live with can act strangly. Either way, we are gathering the best scientists to figure out the answer, and we will let you know their results soon.
Have you ever walked in on your partner and wondered, “what was going on inside their head?” You hope it’s something cute like, “I really want a hug” or “I have a surprise for you,” but it never is.
For u/Flamingonotgone, her husband wasn’t thinking about anything. He was just happy staring at the ceiling and enjoying himself. Odd, but at least he will never get bored.
Sports fanatics will do just about ANYTHING for their beloved team. Well, it seems that NateGearySports might even be willing to break up with his partner over an opposing team's merch.
Yikes, we're not sure that valuing team loyalty over relationship loyalty is good gameplay. We hope he's happy without the blasphemous baseball caps...oh and his partner!
You’re Such a Good Boy
Talking to pets is normal. Who doesn't love saying, "who's a good boy?" and then squishing the dog's face between your hands?
For u/dogemum1990, she is letting her partner think she is talking to him and not the dog. Let him just live in his reality because who doesn't like to be called a "good boy?" Ignorance is bliss!
Beard Hairs Everywhere
If you think long hair gets everywhere, don’t get us started on beard hairs! After a man shaves his face, those things go everywhere. On the vanity, behind the faucet, they have even ended up on the toilet seat. How?
This person understands our pain. Next time, men just use toilet paper to clean it up. It takes a second and cleans the area way better than washing them down the drain does.
Anyone with pets will tell you that cleaning up after them is part of the contract. You pick up their hair, their messes, and their poop. However, one of the worst is their puke.
It’s smelly and is extremely hard to get out of anything it touches. u/ZL found this out when she moved in with her husband, who had two cats. Maybe look into getting a dog next time. Even if they puke, they usually try to eat it right after. Hey, that's an easy clean-up in our books!
Toilet Paper Terror
When a toilet paper roll is running low, the appropriate thing to do is take off the previous one and replace it with a newer roll.
u/OverpoweringIdol’s partner apparently thinks differently because when his roll runs out, he just puts the new roll on top of the low one and waits for the next person to change it. Sneaky, but we see through your plan. Just change it like a normal human.
We all love pizza. It’s easily in the top five foods of all time, up there with tacos, ice cream, pasta, and ramen. We will eat it warm, cold, fresh, and even leftover.
The only pizza we might not eat is one that has fallen on the ground or has been left out all night. u/Carolyn Thompson found out her husband enjoys the latter and will gobble down that pizza. Really? Just put it in the fridge night before, and it will be way less gross.
"Wrong" Out the Towel
You might think there is no wrong way to fold a towel, but there is. Well, at least that is what u/math9958 found out after moving in with his partner.
We are more curious about how he folded the towels. Was he a half or a third-fold person? Which was his partner? These are the questions we need answers to.
Are We Becoming the Same Person?
Each person comes into the relationship with different interests. You may like sports; he may like music. What they don’t tell you is that those interests may rub off on you, given enough time.
u/wEiRdO86 even converted his partner into an anime and heavy metal fanatic while her love of books rubbed off on him. As long as you both enjoy the time you spend together, let those hobbies merge!
Gaining weight over the years is normal, especially when you move in with your partner. U/urmomisr******me (classy) called it out in his Reddit post and it resonated with many people on the thread.
Just think about all the restaurants you visit and all those takeout nights. Or about that whenever you celebrate something special you do it with a fancy meal. All those date nights eventually add up it seems!
Am I the Weirdo?
Sometimes our partner’s habits annoy us. We will both bring our quirks to the relationship; however, some are weirder than others.
u/aaronnortega01 doesn’t find anything wrong with squatting in his living room, screeching loudly, all while eating cheese. Apparently, his girlfriend did, and we have to agree with her. Keep the cheese to the kitchen and the stretching to the gym.
Moving in together is the quickest way to find out your partner's weird and wacky interests. For better or worse...
This Reddit user discovered that his (ex) partner was really into... pyramid schemes. We were not expecting that. Getting scammed on a regular basis? How is that anyone's hobby? It seems that their relationship's foundation wasn't that solid (just like a pyramid scheme, ironically).
Communication is key to any relationship, but sometimes, you must spell it out for your partner to get what you need. That's what happened to this Reddit user who asked her husband to "wash the sheets."
She expected him to wash, dry, and put new ones on the bed so the bed is ready for cuddling after a long day. However, when she returned, the wet linen was still lying in the washer. Either he was incredibly lazy or took her instructions too literally! Both are bad!
Bedtime routines are sacred. Everyone has one, and we tease our partner’s about their idiosyncrasies. But these habits are the things we will end up cherishing about our partners later down the road.
Whether it’s needing a white noise machine, needing to shower before bed, or needing your partner awake to say I love you back before you both drift off, we have our habits. You will look back one day and say, “damn, I loved that, even if I was annoyed by it.”
This is one of the sweetest entries on this list mostly compiled of mild inconveniences. Who doesn’t enjoy morning snuggles, especially when you’re next to your partner? u/FavorsForAButton, we feel you.
There is just something about smooshing your body into the person you love. Yeah, it may make you late for work a few days out of the week, but it’s worth it for that shot of dopamine in the morning. Awwww!
I Cry a Lot
Everyone cries, even if they don’t like to admit it. You try watching the first ten minutes of "Up" and tell us you don’t bawl.
It seems that there isn't much that won't make this person cry. We assume that her boyfriend keeps a stockpile of tissues on hand. We also recommend he keeps a stockpile of ice cream and cuddles!
We get it. When things start getting hot, clothes will come off. A shirt here, some pants there, but why does it always seem men leave their socks wherever they please?
This person wondered the same thing after her man left his socks all over the house. Men, we understand your feet get hot, but if you take off your socks, stuff them in your pocket. We don’t want to pick up your smelly socks after.
Learning to Cook
When you share a meal with someone, it is fantastic. You can laugh, bond, and enjoy fantastic food that both of you will remember. The only thing that tops that is when you cook that meal yourself.
That extra bit of love you can sprinkle on top goes the extra mile, and your partner appreciates the effort you put in. Keep improving your cooking skills and you'll see your partner's love for you grow exponentially.
Robot vacuums are fantastic. You can just turn them on, let them loose in the room, and within a few hours, your place will be squeaky clean.
For this person, that turned out not to be the case because it stopped halfway through its first run when too much hair got caught in its roller. Talk about a hairy situation! We guess you can’t expect too much from a robot that runs on double-A batteries.
When you live with someone long enough, you become comfortable doing just about anything in front of the other. Farting, burping, and even talking to your partner while one of you is on the toilet.
U/chrome452 is still surprised by the number of face-to-face conversations she has had with her partner while sitting on the toilet. It may work for them, but we are going to keep our conversations out of the bathroom, thank you!
We all remember the days when we would sleep over at a friend's house and giggle until the sun came up. It was wholesome, fun, and carefree. Well, if you find yourself the right partner, you could have that for the rest of your life.
u/FoxnBee shows us that relationships don't have to be doom and gloom if you are with someone that you love. We should all aspire to find that type of connection and giggle into the morning like two kids on a sleepover.
While it may seem a little creepy, sleepwalking is actually pretty common. For the most part, the act is harmless, and if you're with a partner, you can laugh about it the next day.
Let's just hope this guy's late-night chit-chat isn't loud enough to get in the way of his partner's beauty sleep. That might make the idea of separate bedrooms seem that much more appealing.
Gaga Guilty Pleasure
We all have our own unique nighttime routines. Some of us read a book, some of us watch a show, and some of us even meditate.
However, this routine is oddly specific and repetitive. "A Star Is Born" is a great movie, don't get us wrong, but watching the trailer EVERY SINGLE NIGHT is not something we can get behind. We could understand if tweeter @nicolewboyce's girlfriend had some questions after moving in...
Everyone gets a wedgie, and sometimes you just have to get in there and pull it out. For men, this happens for their front and back. u/NillPop was shocked by how often her partner would pull out the front wedgie after they moved in.
When she confronted him about it, he simply said, ‘Hey, I gotta scramble the eggs every now and then.’ What chef?! LOL, we hope he washes his hands after he “cooks.”
Sometimes departing with things is hard. For u/Nifederico's partner, it's really hard to depart with a Gatorade bottle when a little is left in there.
We all know she isn't coming back to finish the last bit of backwash, but she's adamant he can't throw them out. Instead, start filling up all of those little sips into one bottle, and next time she asks for one, you can give her that and say, "these are all those sips you were saving for later. I love you, sweetie."
Spilling the Beans
Ah, the dreaded relationship-testing beanbag chair. Every couple must face this challenge. Do we keep it or do we toss it out?
The boyfriend here soon discovered that his girlfriend thought that a beanbag chair was not only a fine piece of furniture but suitable as the ONLY piece of furniture. Let's hope he convinced her to get a couch at least!
Not all things are bad when you start living together. Sometimes, you notice all the cute things they do that make you smile each time you think about them.
For this person, it was the way she sang while cleaning or how she would cling a little tighter if they knew u/justpapyrus was close. These are the things couples should treasure about living with one another, and shout out to him for finding a person he finds that in. We're not crying, you're crying!
When couples move in together, they're not only agreeing to spend all their time together but they're also agreeing to spend all their time with each other's stuff. Even if you don't know exactly what stuff and how much of it your partner has.
This realization hit @jessejoyce, upon discovering his girlfriend's cornucopia of scented candles. Let's just hope he has a weak sense of smell!
Whether it's going out on the town, going to work, or meeting a friend for coffee, we all want to look presentable. We typically know how much time it takes us to get ready, but we don't always realize how long it takes our partners to get ready.
This person found that out himself when he moved in with his partner. She took much...much longer than he expected, but that's ok. Be patient. Take a deep breath and repeat the mantra "The wait will be worth it."
Don't Bug Me
Ignoring a problem doesn’t make it go away. It’s still there even if you don’t acknowledge it. This person found that out the hard way when her boyfriend would see a centipede and immediately turn around and go the other way.
We get it. Anything with more than four legs creeps us out too, but come on if he wants a "leg-up" on the competition he should help her out!
Don't Sweat It!
The only thing worse than sweating too much is your partner sweating too much. This person clearly shares our pain.
We see there are two options to remedy this situation. One, shower before bed, or two, turn down the thermostat a bit and get an extra blanket if you get cold. That way, he doesn’t feel sticky, and you both get the cuddles you deserve.
Too Much Toothpaste!
Doctors say we should brush our teeth twice a day with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. What they don’t specify is where that toothpaste should go.
For most of us, we copy what the commercials show and apply it to our toothbrushes. This person's boyfriend squeezes it directly into his mouth. All we can say is...RUN! This person is clearly not part of the human race.
Everyone has their own grooming techniques. We brush our teeth, pluck our eyebrows, and shave regularly. Some brave few venture into the wonderful yet painful world of waxing.
This person found out her partner enjoys a smooth torso and so he waxes regularly. If he's willing to go through the pain, more power to him! As long as he keeps the wax outside of the bedroom we think it should be fine!
Who Are You?
How well do you really know your partner? For most of us, we think we know our partners pretty well. However, it would surprise us how much our partner can keep a secret even though we sleep in the same bed.
Apparently, this person's partner was keeping a much bigger secret than he could have ever known. We would also be confused if our partner was using a pseudonym to dodge an eviction. A background check might be in order before he decides to move in with their next partner.
How Do You Eat a Banana?
We all have an eating habit that someone may find strange, but splitting a banana vertically into four sections before eating is just... bananas. What is wrong with eating them the normal way?
This person's partner has been splitting his bananas this way for years! Understandably, it's made her rethink her life choices. We would (banana) split out of there.
A massive perk of moving in with your same-sex partner is that you have access to a whole new wardrobe! It’s awesome being able to share clothes with your partner. You essentially double your outfit options.
This person noticed that he and his partner even share underwear too! We just can't decide if this is romantic or unhygienic...or maybe a bit of both?
One of the hardest things to do is adjust to sleeping with someone else in the bed. When you’re single, you can sprawl out and take up the entire bed. When you have a partner, that space reduces by half.
You also have to contend with their movements and even snores. However, once you get comfortable with them, it feels like something is missing when you’re not in the same room. It seems that this person agrees with that and would prefer the snores and snuggles over an empty bed any day.
Cleanliness is a spectrum. On one end, there are people who scrub every nook and cranny of their homes. On the other end, there are people who haven't picked up a broom in years. If you and your partner are on opposing ends, things could get...messy.
It's best to avoid a dirty fight by "cleaning up" your definition of clean with your partner earlier rather than later.
When you move in with someone, you will have to share space, but rarely do we have a conversation about which space we can put our stuff in. This person was surprised when she opened up a dresser drawer to find it empty.
When she confronted her partner, he said he thought that was her "extra" dresser and had been putting his clothes in his "clean clothes" hamper for the last four years. Maybe we should all have a conversation about what goes where next time we move in with a partner.
There's no question that adulting is hard. Sometimes we all need a good cry to let the stress and anxiety out. After moving in together, this person's partner soon came to realize that he had a dedicated time and place for crying.
We have to say, combining the daily tasks of showering and crying is an impressively productive move. Sad...but time-efficient!
Country Meets Metal
Choosing music in the car is one of the hardest things to do. It's even harder when people's music choices clash. For this married couple their music clashes a bit more than usual.
She loves death metal, and he enjoys country, an interesting combination indeed. We are just glad they have made it work and love each other despite their differences in music. Sometimes opposites attract, and this is one of those examples.
Men Don't Wipe?
Typically we assume everyone uses the bathroom like us. If we sit while we pee, everyone sits while they pee. If we stand while we wipe, everyone stands while they wipe. If we like to spend 30 minutes on the john, everyone takes 30 mins on the john.
This person found out that's not always the case when she found out her boyfriend doesn't wipe after peeing. Her mind was blown, and it still feels weird to her to this day. We only hope that since we wash our hands after we pee, everyone, washes their hands after they pee.
Bless You, Bobby Pins!
Bobby pins are the unsung heroes of hairstyling! They help keep your hair in place while staying undetectable to the untrained eye. They are basically little pieces of hair magic.
However, once they leave the nest (well..the hair) they can get lost easily and end up all over the place. This just leaves men scratching their heads as they find their partner's bobby pins EVERYWHERE!
Moving in with your lover means that you have to adjust to how they like their coffee in the morning, how clean they are, and most importantly, what volume the TV has to be.
Sadly for this person, the bubble of living together burst at the very same moment their ear drums did from the excessive noise 3 rooms down.
Time to Duck Out
Sure, Donald Duck is a beloved character from the Disney gang that hits all the nostalgia buttons from our childhood. That doesn't mean you have to erect a shrine to your famous feathered friend in your house.
Unfortunately for this person, they discovered their partner's desire to turn their home into a Donald Duck sanctuary. Keep Disney characters on your screens and off your shelves people...please!
The function of pillows is a hotly debated topic amongst couples who move in together. Should there be decorative pillows everywhere, or should we only have enough pillows to be functional? Regardless of where you stand on the pillow-poll spectrum, u/Ganglebot has had too much of the decorative ones in his relationship.
They are everywhere, and they can’t even use them to have a pillow fight! Oh no, no pillow fights?! If there is one thing we can all agree on is that any pillow can be used in a pillow fight.
His Mom Still Cleaned His House?!
When you date someone and see they have a clean house, you may think, “oh, this person cleans up after themselves.” What you don’t expect is their mom was the actual person cleaning their place.
You can imagine the rude awaking this person had when she found out her husband’s mom did that exact thing for him. This man didn’t even know how to load the dishwasher. We are glad u/Prof_Trelawney taught him Cleaning 101, but that’s ridiculous.
How do you organize your books? By alphabetical order? Maybe by genre? Well, this person said, "screw that, I am arranging them by size."
Why? Purely aesthetics. I mean, she has a point. How many people actually read the books they have displayed in their homes? Yep, unfortunately, the sad reality is that most big bookshelves are just for show.
The “Honey To-Do” List
If you need some help around the house, simply ask. Most of the time, your partner would love to help, they just don’t know what needs to be done.
This person found that making a “Honey To-Do” list was the perfect solution. Now, anything she writes down gets done immediately. A pretty handing list if we do say so ourselves.
What is more depressing than an empty fridge on an empty stomach? u/Mary Hines noticed her partner let his fridge run dry on the regular!
As bare as the day he bought it? What does he eat? We hope his freezer is full of Lean Cuisine or at least microwaveable chicken nuggets. Otherwise, he is racking up quite the UberEats bill.
Putting on a clean pair of socks is one of the best feelings in the world, and the best thing is we get to experience that daily.
Well, maybe not for everyone because this person seems to think that it’s weird to change your socks every day. Huh? It begs the question...what else isn't being changed every day? Yikes, we don't want to know!
It's just one of the many annoying things we have to deal with — hair gets everywhere. There's no stopping it; as humans, we just shed. However, it does end up in odd places. Well, this person seems to constantly be pulling his girlfriend's hair out of his butt crack.
We are just curious about how that much gets caught there. Enough for a butt wig?
Can’t Help Falling in Love With You
Different people fall in love for different reasons. Sometimes you can't even stop it. (Elvis dedicated an entire song to this subject)
But we agree, there is something seductive about your partner dancing to dumb songs after a long day at work. We would fall deeper in love with them too, u/wehatekevfbs. Throw on another track, and let's keep dancing.
What?! Did You Say Something?
Why walk to the next room and ask your partner what they just said when you could scream, “WHAT?!” at the top of your voice? Well, this person thought the same thing, although he was surprised by how often he and his partner did that.
To be honest, it’s much more efficient and saves energy compared to walking to the next room. We are all about efficiency here, so keep doing what you’re doing and keep those vocal cords at the ready.
Men will typically have rougher skin than a woman. Usually, it comes down to genetics. However, for this person, her boyfriend has some of the softest skin she has ever felt; the crazy part is that he doesn’t even moisturize!
It's not fair, most of us have dozens of bottles and tubes filled with expensive moisturizing lotion. Let us, mere mortals, in on your silky-smooth-skin secret!
We all understand the pure joy of putting on a fresh pair of undies. It's like taking a shower without actually having to get wet! However, we're not sure we get changed multiple times a day...
This person made the...interesting discovery that their man was an avid underwear changer. Hey, whatever makes him comfortable, but let's just hope that he handles all the extra laundry pile-up!
We love learning new things from our partners. This person was lucky enough to learn that his partner used a magical potion that kept her laundry soft. He was mystified and perplexed! How was his clothing so smooth and soft?
What could it be? Just plain and very normal fabric softener. We are cringing just thinking how scratchy his bed sheets were before this revelation.
PSA: shower curtains are not just for show! They have an important purpose people. Apparently, this person's partner doesn't agree.
We can only imagine the amount of water that goes everywhere during his shower. We hope he has a mop next to the sink to dry everything up after. However, just for our sanity and to prevent a mold infestation, close up the curtain next time.
The Toilet Was Too Far...
Peeing is a daily thing, and we use the toilet to flush it away after we are done. Apparently, not everyone got the memo because this Reddit user caught her partner peeing in the sink! Come on, that’s where we brush our teeth and wash our face.
We don’t need it to smell like pee while getting ready for work in the morning. Take a few steps to the side and pee in the thing made for bodily excrement. You will probably miss and hit the seat, but that’s better than missing and hitting my toothbrush.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, humans can shed up to 50-100 hairs a day. You may not always notice the hair you lose, but once you shack up, that hair shed doubles, and it becomes harder to ignore.
No wonder we see it everywhere. It usually starts in the bathroom, then migrates to the bedroom, and finally, one day, you will wake up in the middle of the night and pull out a long strand that somehow got caught in your mouth. We speak from experience...
One day you're a kid with no care in the world, and the next you're a grown-up who is genuinely invested in the specific type of bowls you have in your home.
Upon moving in together, not only did this guy find out how important dishware is to his girlfriend, but also discovered just how important it is to himself.
Sometimes conversation feels forced. You and the other person know y’all are both grasping for straws to find something that sticks.
Other times, there’s this awesome back and forth, and y’all never run out of topics to discuss. When you find that person that you can talk about anything with, keep them close. That doesn’t come around often, and it’s special you can find it.
Time on the Throne
Every man wants to feel like a king; maybe that's why they spend so much time on the throne. It's a place of solitude and reflection. It's their getaway, and sometimes it’s the only time in their day they get to do nothing for a few minutes.
So that may be why this person's husband has been on the toilet for so long. Or, he is trying to beat Level 2047 of CandyCrush. Either is a good guess.
Go Find Your Own Thing to Do!
People get bored when they are at home alone for too long. But what happens when people run out of Netflix to watch? Normally, they reach for a book or start a new hobby, but for this person, her partner just follows her around the house.
That is one way to waste time, but maybe next time, suggest to them a hobby that isn’t just following you around.
Talk to Me!
When you have lived alone long enough, you might start talking to yourself. It’s nothing abnormal, just a way for us to stay sane (at least that's what we tell ourselves).
Although, your partner might think you’re a little bit crazy when you move in together. This person found that out when his girlfriend kept asking him who he was talking to and realized it was himself. At least he knows he's in good company!
You might think that the only thing you should blow your nose in is a tissue. And, you are right. However, this person's partner thinks differently.
If they need to blow their nose, they will grab the nearest old t-shirt and let loose. The only thing worse about that is that their partner has now picked up the habit. We assume they have a pile of folded clothes in their living room just in case one of their guests needs to blow their nose too.
It’s the small things that make us feel like we have made it. Maybe it’s a promotion at work, or maybe it’s going out to eat and not worrying about the bill.
Well, this person's partner now feels like he sleeps in luxury after upgrading from his one blanket to an entire bed set when his girlfriend moved in. Good on you for making the transition. Just wait until you find out about terry cloth robes; you might feel like a king after that.
