Navigating the 15 Joys (and Frustrations!) of Co-Habitation

Living with someone can be a complex blend of both fulfilling and demanding experiences. When you share a living space with another person, it entails not only sharing physical quarters but also responsibilities, routines, and individual preferences. This coexistence can occasionally give rise to conflicts and frustrations that may test one’s patience and sanity. It is not uncommon for people to find themselves driven to the brink of madness by certain aspects of their significant other’s behavior or habits.

This person said, “Not only does he not do his dishes, but he also hits me with the “don’t worry about them, I’ll do them later.” Three days later, they’re still there taunting me!”

Leaves The TV On

A user shared, “He falls asleep watching TV at night but never turns the TV off. Every night after midnight, I have to go downstairs and turn everything off so we don’t just leave the TV and lights on the entire night!”

Absent Minded

A reader said, “He asks me where things are before he even attempts to look for them. “Where are my keys?” In the bowl, where they always are. “Where’s the milk?” In the door. That’s where it’s always gone. “Did you move my phone?” Nope, it’s in your pocket. Just look for things! They’re right in front of your face!”

Too Neat

This reader stated, “The 10,000 small pieces of his beard all over the sink, behind the faucet, in every little nook and cranny that is somehow invisible to the male eye!”

Paces Around

A user complained, “When he talks on the phone, he paces. Whatever, but he paces around the living room where I’m watching TV or playing video games. Like, dude, we have another whole floor for you to pace around on upstairs!”

Alone Time

This user shared, “I get very, very little alone time. He works early mornings, and I work 8-5. So by the time I get home, he is home too. He is off on Saturdays and works Sundays, and is a homebody. Most of his friends are online, and he has no interest in wasting money going out all the time. I only get maybe 3 hours a week home alone on Sunday, which is not enough.”

Can’t Find Anything

One poster said, “After living together for 7 years, 5 of them married, my husband asks, “Where do we keep the Windex?”  Seriously….. you’ve NEVER looked under our kitchen sink?”

Cooking Habits

One had this to share, “When making food, he doesn’t clean up as he goes along. Even when we finish eating, there will be at least a couple of hours before he begins clearing up the aftermath.”

Can’t Bring up Any Issues

This user said, “If I forget to do something and he decides to do it for me, he will bring it up obnoxiously with an “I’ll close this cabinet” or “I emptied the drain catcher.”

Keeps Everything!

A user added, “My boyfriend doesn’t throw away empty things. He has two containers of juice with two inches of juice in them that he isn’t going to drink, and I’m not going to drink because they’ve been sitting there for six months, and they just sit on the bottom shelf in the fridge, mocking me.”

Find The Hamper

A reader said, “Before bed, he takes his socks and shirt off and puts them in the hamper. Then walks AWAY from the hamper and shimmies out of his pants, and leaves them there on the floor.”

Listening Skills

A user shared this story, “He doesn’t listen to me, then things go wrong, and it affects me more than him. It pisses me off. Eg. He had a few points left on his license I said stop speeding. And he didn’t. He lost his license, so I had to get up 4 hrs earlier each day to drive him to and from work for a year. He gets his license back, and I say be smart, follow the road rules, and he blows up, saying he is a good driver.”
