aww.  I’m sorry.  My guy procrastinates too on most things (however, travel related he’s super antsy about) so I hear you on it.  I don’t want to nag, but I want things to go smoothly.  Can’t help you out too much on finding the perfect balance.  The biggest change in his behavior I saw when I really prioritized what I wanted from him rather than trying to get him to do everything that needed doing.  So for example, I was trying to merge our stuff together and got no help from him.  I just decided what I needed from him (drag a few heavy boxes to the basement) and what I could do for him even though he’d likely prefer to do himself at some date far far into the future (e.g. oodles of papers I sorted, stacked and stored for him to go through later).  I tried to keep his to do list very small, very obvious why I needed assistance, and if he didn’t do it in a timely fashion…well, I didn’t say anything once but I moved the boxes to a more prominent location near the back stairs/in the hallway.  I’ve also used humor before – items I wanted gone once got a laugh and prompt move when stickied with an “offending item” tag.

I can relate. I am a super-serial planner, and R is…well…not. So it’s so frustrating because I will plan in advance and he just dilly-dallies. Drives me NUTS.

But he always gets things done.
He’s just more of a “go with the flow” type guy, I guess.
We balance each other nicely.

ooohhh. ohhhhhh! sounds so familiar! my SO did the SAME THING last fall. i told him in august go ahead and apply for your passport. we leave for our cruise in december and i don’t want to stress about this. the biggest procrastinator in the world (hence, why we’re still waiting for the jeweler to find a diamond, he could have been on top of this WHILE he was saving, not when he had the money about looking for a stone) decided to wait unitl mid october. i kept reminding him but figured we would be fine. one month before we left he finds out he didn’t have the correct documents when he applied for the passport (a copy of his birth certificate, not the actual birth certificate) and the stupid person went ahead and accepted this, setting us back a month. i FREAKED OUT when i found out he wasn’t actually applied for the passport (and he wasn’t showing up in the system when i checked his status so that was obvious) and we had a huge fight over this. i was so upset and he was definitely acting like he didn’t care. luckily he worked in washington at the time and an official passport office was a block from his office (where they make emergency passports) so he had one 5-10 days later, but i know how you are feeling. push him on this though, don’t let him wait. passport timing (emergency or not) can still take up to a week or more.
