I’ve lived with Paul pretty much since we got together because he literally stayed at my house all the time! I think when you live with someone everything definitely changes, you learn so much about your partner but also you tend to see them in a different light. It doesn’t mean you don’t love them, it is just changes things in your relationship when you live with them! So in the last 6 years that I have lived with this human, what have I learned?
1. Choosing what to have for dinner gets harder
I have to admit this is more me than Paul, I’m the most indecisive person when it comes to what to eat for dinner, I mean Paul and I can sit there for about 35 minutes trying to figure out what to have for dinner. Our longest debate over what to have for dinner is about 3 hours.
2. You learn to share
I don’t share very well, I actually really don’t like it, especially when it comes to my ice cream, I’d defend it to the ends of the earth. Sorry Paul.
3. You learn that you can no longer starfish in bed
Oh lordy I love being a starfish, stretching out at night, but let’s be honest, it isn’t exactly possible when you’ve got someone next to you and you’re likely to kick them out of the bed.
4. You learn new things
I have learned so much through Paul, I mean he is the reason I am into gaming so much, he is the reason I absolutely love technology!
5. You learn that nobody is perfect
I love Paul and he has his faults like all of us do, it’s human nature, but I love him more than life itself, but you see that person all the time so you see them in a whole different light.
6. You see that person’s quirks
I love this one, mainly because it reminds me of the little things Paul does that just makes me smile, for example when he pulls his thinking face, oh my gosh it is absolutely adorable.
7. When life gets tough you have that special person to lean on
I know that when things get tough, knowing that that person isn’t going anywhere or having to go home because they will be by your side drying your tears for as long as possible.
8. You spend your life hiding all the good sweets because your partner will eat them first
I do this all the time, even though I know Paul won’t actually eat my sweets, I just want to be on the safe side! #sneaky
9. Netflix is your other bae
In my marriage Netflix is our other love because let’s be honest, if we’re sick, tired, exhausted, or just want to be away from the world then Netflix is our one stop shop for binge watching TV programmes.
10. Arguments erupt if someone has moved onto the next episode of a series
Holy moly when Paul watched one episode more of a programme (can’t remember which one) I was like how could you, why would you do that, I wanted us to watch it together. It wasn’t a big deal but let’s be honest, sometimes it’s the little things.
Live with a partner? Have I forgotten something? Let me know what I’ve missed out!
