@EmieBee4:  The best? Having him come home after work, waking up next to him every morning. The worst? Arguments over housework definitely.

@EmieBee4:  best thing: waking up to him everyday.

Worst: having to share bathroom time getting ready in the morning. Him leaving his bags of chips on the living room table.. would it kill you to put it back in the kitchen?!

@jenm2be:  omg I can so relate to that!! My SO and I fought about him leaving the lights on all the time!!!  (I leave for work first in the morning, so they’d be on all day long).  It was also a hard adjustment for me too.

@EmieBee4:  Waking up/ going to bed together is by far the best. 

 

Not having space to just hang out is the worst. Although, only for me. If you were to ask my bf he would say that me not putting the lids back on was the worst lol.

BEST– Getting to go to sleep with her and wake up with her in the morning.

 

WORST– Hair in the shower… Totally worth it though.

@EmieBee4:  

Best:  Waking up next to him.

Worst:  I have to leave this blank.  Nearly three years living together and I can’t think of anything negative.

We haven’t ever fought about anything household related and I love getting to be with him every day because we were long distance for most of our relationship. The only downside is that I haven’t been able to to much in the way of decorating, but that isn’t his fault; we are just moving abroad in September so I didn’t want to get anything nice that we couldn’t ship.

The easiest thing was figuring out money… it just worked out really well for us. It was also really easy for both of us to get used to having each other there (we both lived around before). The hardest thing was definetly cleaning styles. I’m clean, but not crazy about it. Fiance is a neat freak… it was a hard balance to find!

Best is coming home and seeing him every day!

Worst is his constant farts. Was not prepared for that….

@SgrPlum12:  At least I’m not the only one! Definitely makes me feel a tad bit better ha! You must learn to pick your battles. I never fully understood that until we moved in together. It all makes sense now!

Best? Waking up with him every morning and going to sleep with him every night. Some of our silliest conversations happen right before we go to sleep. I love coming home to be with him and our dogs. There’s something intangible about it that makes life so easy and so much more fulfilling than when I was living alone. I can’t even begin to list the little, everyday things that make living with my SO among the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Worst? I tend to manage our finances, and I feel like the bad guy asking him to pay up each month, as we aren’t combining our accounts until we’re married (or, at least until he puts a ring on it). I also went from having a 5 minute commute to driving at least an hour each way to get to my teaching job. I am not in a position where we’re saving money because of the monster commute and the ridiculous discrepancy in cost of electricity ($30 bill in Massachusetts vs. $180 in New Hampshire…WHAT?!) Temporary situation though – I’m looking for a job much closer to where we are currently living. I sometimes feel like I have to consult him on all of the plans I make, but I think part of that is just simple common courtesy and part of it is our relationship and our perrsonalities.
