that’s guys for ya. Fiance doesn’t clean normally unless I ask him to. He tidies, but him and I don’t have the same expectations for a clean apartment. I think that’s pretty much standard though.

Nah, I don’t mind to lead by example. What irritates me is when I’m doing all the big jobs around the house and he’s on his duff playing video games. Then later says to me “well, you don’t notice all the little things I do around the house.” Bah.

Mine does that but plays dumb and focuses on my things. So annoying when he finally starts to help but instead of tackling the giant stack of his crap from work, he wants to know where to put the book I was reading. It was fine on the coffee table jerkface. And my keys stay on the counter. It is their home!

It’s sad but sometimes I get excited when I see he took the trash out without me asking. But my guy does the same thing. He’ll start cleaning once he sees me doing it. Yeah. Bugs me I have to take the lead. But for the most part, I’m thrilled he notices and helps. Because I promise, I’d commit murder if I’m trying to clean our filthy home and he’s sitting there watching tv. Yeah. Maybe he senses the potential murder and figures he’ll help… 🙂

Yep!  Mine is the same way.  Only it’s not like 5 mins after I start he starts…it’s more like an hour into my cleaning spree he feels guilty, but then gets tired and quits early too.  So I do 3x the work he does.

@lia22: I just discovered that where I keep my good linens is now a junk drawer, so I understand the whole “moving things from here to there”.


And I also am learning how to get oil, rust, grease and pen out of linen. 😐

Oh man, I’m always annoyed at DH for wanting to clean all the time. He’s a total neat freak! I don’t like dishes in the sink or anything, but I tend to be more laid-back about the house. He drives me nuts nagging me about cleaning but I guess I should thank my lucky stars I’m not cleaning any gross bathrooms!

As long as he does get up to actually pitch in I’m fine with it. Someone’s gotta be the first one to start cleaning!
