I wonder if these would have been dealbreakers
When you really fall in love with someone and think that they’re the one, moving in is a huge step in the relationship. It can make or break you. Living with someone is getting to know them on the most personal level possible… and sometimes you aren’t able to get over those strange little idiosyncrasies they have. Could you live with someone who littered socks all over the house? A serial cabinet opener? A bathroom door opener? These people just can’t get over the things their significant others do, but they still love them with all their heart.
My husband is deaf. The thing is, I had NO IDEA how loud he could be. It should have occurred to me sooner, but he has no concept of his own volume. Listening to him make a cup of tea is like having the cast of Stomp in our kitchen. (Fruit-Viking)
He is obsessed with programmable things. Now all of our lamps are programmed so if I walk into a room I have to go “Alexa, turn on the lights.” It’s like living in some sci fi movie. It’s fun until we get into a fight and then he messes with me by doing weird things to the lights. (viktor72)
He’s a binger. If he finds a musician he likes, he’ll buy the whole catalog. Cool video game? Stay up until all hours every night until he’s gone all the way through it. Good book? Let’s read everything that author ever wrote! He just tended to binge on something that grabbed his interest. After I called it to his attention, he became a little more balanced, but he still goes all-in on some things. It’s sorta cute. (mamacrocker)
