Gone are the days of accepting your significant other for who they are and ignoring the irking things they do. Women of today who take that step – or rather giant leap – into shacking up with their guy may or may not know just exactly what it is they are getting themselves into.
Living with a guy can be challenging. Stay strong, be clever, and use these helpful tips to maintain a healthy relationship.
And your sanity.
8. Clean the toilet bowl when he’s not around
Lifting that seat is not for the faint of heart. Get those rubber gloves on and brace yourselves. More importantly, make sure the accused is no where in sight. Every woman is at her most resentful state at around this time and if close by, every word he says or any move he makes will be held against him in the most excruciating and profane of ways.
7. Swiffer is your new best friend
Not even the family dog sheds as much as guys do. Multiple vacuums can become quite costly so a Swiffer dust mop on every floor can go a long way.
6. Forward all credit card bills to your parents’ house
For as long as you want to continue shopping, destroy store bills and bags, remove tags immediately, and cease to change the billing addresses on your credit cards until you decide household peace and tranquility just does not work for you.
5. Tit for tat
If men are allowed repainting the toilets with every visit, women are allowed having a closet just for shoes. What’s fair is fair.
