    I got a 1. But J is amazing and does things without asking. πŸ™‚ And our relationship is still kind of ‘young’ in terms that we’ve been LDR for MOST of it and are just now together (Yay!)

    2/10 I will say that in previous relationships, my number was a lot higher. So I don’t know if that means I’ve learned how not to nag or if my husband is just so easy to live with!

    I do try to make a strong effort not to nag. When I ask my husband to do something, I try to make sure I ask when he is not distracted by something else and I try to be very clear what I want/need from him. This method works pretty good for us and I don’t feel that I ever have to nag him about anything.

    1/10. I’ve learned that my fiance responds a lot better to written requests than verbal. He simply forgets if I just ask him to do something, but if I make a list called “Stuff you could get done that would make me happy”, he’s never failed to do them all. A while back, I mentioned that his drowning-in-paper in-our-dining-room-desk (welcome to not having enough rooms in our apartment) made me tense, since I loathe clutter. His desk has been clean-ish ever since.

    2/10 pour moi. My husband doesn’t believe me when I tell him he gives me dirty looks… I didn’t realize nagging could be nonverbal!

    3/10. I’m a bossy boots and very organised. I organise for a living and am a big forward planner so it’s hard to understand that dear Fiance isn’t like that. Eeek at being the biggest nagger so far!

    Edit: Cept for Miss Scissors. So I’m in good company in nag-ville πŸ˜‰

    I got 2/10, and I agree it was much higher in previous relationships. I have a really bad habit of telling hubs to do something rather than ask.  He hates that, and reminds me that I’m being like my mother.  I have gotten a lot better, and I remind him that if he just did things the first time I tell ask him, then I wouldn’t have to keep repeating myself Smile

    I don’t even need to check myself on this poll………..I know I’m a nagger. Anyone have any suggestions to brush things off easily? I have been REALLY trying since we moved in together in our First Home. I’ve been trying to let stuff slide. But I’m finding out that I am more of a perfectionist than I use to think I was…… Any Advice?

    0/10 so I actually couldn’t contribute although in past relationships I may have gotten as high as a 5 or 6!  Fiance and I are a great match πŸ™‚

    I got 2/10. I do have to ask him to do some things more than once because he forgets. I don’t get bitchy about it though… more like “hey did you remember x?” and the answer is usually “nope! haha”

    I’ll take full responsibility for correcting/doing things myself though. I’m kinda a control freak heh
