    20 Awkward Things That Happen When You Move In With A Significant Other

    Pooping is so awkward.

    1. When you have to fart, and don't want to terrify the person next to you.

    2. When you both have a different style of cleaning, and you have to figure out which is the "right" way.

    3. When your partner is happy and fast asleep, and you hear something weird happen.

    4. When you need to use the bathroom...for things...and have to ask them to play music so they don't hear you.

    5. And now you know every time the other person is doing a No. 2.

    6. You feel like if you're not doing anything, then you should be doing SOMETHING.

    7. Even though you both know that you really just want to lay on the couch.

    8. When you're on different sleep schedules, and at bedtime one of you has to be the party pooper.

    9. You haven't had to check in with someone since you lived with your parents... But now you do.

    10. You're no longer able to get away with your quirky/borderline disgusting habits.

    11. Someone has to be the banker in the relationship... NOT IT.

    12. Feeling like you have to have a dinner plan every night.

    13. Asking your S.O. to not come into a certain room when you're have a girls'/bros' night.

    14. Masturbation = impossible

    15. When you nicely offer to do some of the other person's laundry, and this horrifying thing happens.

    16. When you have to address the things they're doing "wrong," and feeling like a total asshole.

    17. You go through twice the TP for the twice the poops.

    18. Worrying that if you spend too much time in the bathroom, they'll start worrying about you.

    19. Having a standoff about who's going to get rid of their couch, and then being known as the couple with two couches in their living room.

    20. They are forced to see you at your absolute worst.

    But these awkward moments end up bringing you closer together.
