Moving in with your significant other is one of the most trying, wonderful, exhausting, and eye-opening experiences you can have in life. Gone are the days of privacy and living in your own filth. Now, you get to live in another person’s filth and body hair and annoying habits and WTF were you even thinking?!

Okay, so it’s not all bad. I mean, you have your best friend around to show funny YouTube videos at all times of the day, you can f*ck literally whenever and wherever you want in the house, and you love each other and all that other gross sh*t. However, you’ll have to get used to your SO’s strange AF habits.

Maybe your girlfriend refuses to ever use the same cup again so there’s a graveyard of molding coffee cups and old warm soda steeping in a sad, sad cup abyss in your room. Or maybe your boyfriend has to stand up, put one foot on the toilet seat and then go to town on wiping his sh*tty ass. They never said love was easy, and it’s especially hard when you’re living with the freakiest freak that you call bae. Come on, though — you’re habits are just as weird, if not weirder, so suck it up and love each other in all of your oddball glory.

Or, like, break up and live alone forever. Whatever.

23 people confess the most WTF things they learned about their SO when they moved in together:


He stands with one foot on the toilet, and then crouches, to wipe. I have no idea. It always looks like he’s trying to put in a tampon for the first time.


My husband is deaf (to clarify, I did know this before we moved in together). 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.


Aside from her hair she will only air-dry herself, which seems like a good thing for any guy to witness his gf do but when you have waxed hardwood flooring, shower time becomes ‘try not to break your fucking body’ time.


We’ve been married a little over 10 years. I just realized a month ago, he lays his socks out every night before bed. Not a shirt, not a pair of pants or his belt, but his socks. I just asked him if he’s been laying socks out every night recently. He says he’s been doing it since he was a kid.
