The Frustrating Part of Living With Your Significant Other

Living with someone can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, especially when the person is your significant other! That said, it can also have its fair share of frustrating moments. Sharing a living space means sharing living areas, household chores, and working around personal preferences, which can sometimes lead to conflicts and disagreements. From differences in cleaning standards to conflicting schedules, living with someone can be challenging!

One Redditor shared, “In my case, my boyfriend drips water on the floor when he washes his hands and reaches for a towel and gets my socks wet.”

The Dishes

This Redditor 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 Redditor 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

Leaves Lights On

Beard Clippings

This Redditor 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.”

One Redditor 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

A Redditor 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.”

One Redditor confided, “Right now, it’s that I can’t bring up seemingly small “issues” without being treated like I’m incredibly nit-picky.”

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.”

Just Toss It

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 Redditor 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.”
