We occasionally will have the doorbell or phone ring when trying to have alone time. A lot of times we ignore it and keep on going but it does kind of make me nervous. Especially if its the doorbell. My parents travel a lot and are gone a few months out of the year. I also have a cousin who has a key and she has let herself in before if someone was home but didn’t answer.
Do you ever get interrupted during alone time with your SO? How do you handle it?

Someone has a key to your house and would let herself in if no one answers without notifying you?! NO NO NO! (for the exact reason you are describing…) (Why would she even be coming into your house? I have lots of friends and family that I love, and some even have keys to our house, but there is NO reason under the sun I can think of that they would have to let themselves into our house without talking to us first!)

We almost always get interrupted because we have a 12 week old baby who never naps and sleeps in our bed with us. Whomp whomp.

We were fairly close growing up and she actually lived with us briefly. It does get annoying but she typically calls before visiting. It’s the couple of times that she shows up unannounced. One time she told me she was coming by and she was like 2 hours late and we had given up on her. We decided to head to my room for a while and when we got up there was a note on the kitchen table.

Do most couples just ignore the phone and doorbell?

@Kacey23: “Do most couples just ignore the phone and doorbell?”
Yes. Although to be fair, I never answer the door anyway if I’m not expecting someone.
ETA: My parents do have a key to my apartment, but they would never just let themselves in, and if they were coming over to visit it would be arranged in advance.

Our living situation is a bit strange. Me & Fi live in my mothers home, which has been converted into 2 apartments [her side & our side]. We do, however, share a kitchen. Everything else is separate though… living rooms, dining rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms. Each one has a door leading in/outside, and each one has a lockable door in the kitchen as well.
So.. we just lock the door and don’t answer it if we need alone time. Pretty simple.

ALL THE TIME. We live with DH’s aunt, which is okay, but very annoying at times. When she comes home she almost always yells down to us about the dishes, or something funny the dog is doung, or our cars, or the snow etc. etc. It can get very awkward. She wakes us up a lot too as she goes to bed later than us.
