Ten Things That I’ve Learned About Him After Two Months Of Living Together
“If you can stay in love for more than two years, you’re on to something.” Fran Lebowitz
Living with another person is always complicated and perfect is not going to happen over night. You face all the same issues that dating couples face -time together, managing friends, ex-partners — but you also face all the issues married couples face, like household contributions and managing money together. We slid into certain habits and discuss others. I think we are just going to have to settle for “really great most of the time.” Here is what I’ve learned so far about him.
If I leave dishes in the sink for more than an hour, he will wash them.
He listens to the news all day every day. Rachel Maddow’s voice echoes in my sleep. My Trump anxiety is through the roof.
He has had a few cups of coffee before I wake up and immediately starts talking in depth about whatever is in his brain. My brain is just coherent enough to make coffee.
He decided not to edit his photography collection.
He hates parking.
He loves to go to the farmers market every Saturday morning and I love to relax and go out to breakfast. We are compromising.
When he decides to learn a new difficult song on the guitar he plays it over and over for days – which will turn into months until it is perfect. Luckily, it is Beethoven and I love it.
He talks to me in great detail about guitar fingering and tunings as if I am a person who understands what he is talking about.
He wakes up happy.
He often say weird things like babe did you see my keys? did you see my wallet?
