What I have Learned from Living with a Guy.

This month marks our one-year anniversary of living together. Ever since we started dating back in 2007, we have been inseparable, so there have been no major "surprises." Just because there haven't been any surprises, doesn't mean I haven't learned anything...

  1. Don't sweat the small stuff.
  2. Be patient and pick your battles. 
  3. One of you is going to be the slob, and one of you is going to be the neat freak.
  4. Between the two of you, you are going to accumulate a lot of clutter.
  5. Do thoughtful things for each other.
  6. It's okay to say what's on your mind.
  7. Be respectful of each others quirks.
  8. Compromising is a must! 
  9. Date nights are still very important.
  10. Say "I love you" everyday!

What would you add to this list? 


  1. I love your list! Kisses in the morning and before bed are a must. Taking time to cuddle and do something together is another must!

  2. Wait til you see the amount of clutter you have created when you move again!! As far as adding to the list, make sure you have a solid financial plan or at least know who's responsible for getting the bills paid, and have a happy place or your own corner where you can go to and be separate from each other since it's not so easy to escape anymore!

    Glad I found you through The Collective, I'll be following from Bloglovin'!
