My man is SOOOOO messy. He is so careless with his belongings. It drives me crazy, because I am super anal-organized and clean. He does things that drive me crazy at least 10-15 times a day. Like…he will take a wrapper off something and not throw it away, just leave it on the counter. He leaves things that go bad out, like cheese and meat. He will make a bag of popcorn and put the popcorn in a bowl and leave the empty bag in the sink (!?!), he will open the cabinents to get things out and leave them open. He leaves his clothes everywhere – I always find pants on the floor, socks, boxers. It never stops. He can never find his keys.
I nag about this constantly and then I feel bad because he, as I quote “feels like he does everything wrong”. That makes me sad. He has so many qualities I love – and I feel like the messy thing is so stupid and unimportant in the long run – but it irritates me constantly because I can’t have our place clean for more than a couple hours. I ask him to help try not to leave stuff on the floor and leave stuff out in the kitchen. I even made signs to post in the kitchen. Things have improved marginally, but I guess it is just something I am going to have to get used to. Still drives me crazy, though, and I wish there was a solution.
