Buying a home is without a doubt one of the most exciting moments in anyone’s life, especially when you get to embark on the new chapter with your partner. However, we’ve all heard of the saying “you don’t really know someone until you live with them”, and for many people that can certainly ring true.
From bin duty disagreements to toilet seat mishaps, we all have a partner pet peeve we can relate to – or perhaps you’re the perpetrator of the crimes! And with almost 3,600 brits searching for ’red flags in a relationship’ it seems some of us are becoming aware of our partners (or our own) bad habits.
So, to celebrate the highs and inevitable lows of living with a loved one, national and award-winning housebuilder St. Modwen Homes has pulled together some of the most common red flags you may experience when living with your beau, as well as some tips to help cope with such savagery.
They might bring you flowers and sweet treats after you’ve had a rough day at work, but if your partner loves to leave the dishes to ‘soak’ for hours or even days, it can prove difficult to remember those special romantic gestures.
However, you shouldn’t have to make peace with the mountain of dishes staring at you every day. If you have the budget for it, investing in a dishwasher will soon put a stop to the serial ‘soakers’.
If all else fails, next time your resident washing up avoider takes a shower, just put all the dirty dishes in with them – a sure fire way to teach them a lesson and save some money on your water bill (don’t tell them it was our idea, of course)!
