Take myself for example. I know, I know, I'm so darn right near-perfect, why would anyone think of disagreeing with me, you ask - but on the rare occasion my absolute home perfection can border on the slight obsessive. Could you keep a straight face reading that, because I sure couldn't.
In the living room when watching TV, I am a complete remote hog. I need to know what is going on all channel at all times (I don't want to miss out!) so during commercial breaks, I am whizzing around the guide channel trying to better-deal myself. I have a habit of picking up the remote and switching channels if BF walks out of the room - even just to use the bathroom - so the remote usually cuddles with me on the couch. Thankfully BF is not a big sports fanatic or we would have been all out brawling by now!
I also HAVE to eat. So when we are deciding on where to go, BF has learned to pick up the hint (though honestly I didn't know I was being all passive aggressive dropping it) that if I'm recommending a place or type of food, if I mention something more than once, that's where I want to go. Even if I say I don't care. So good on my sweetie for reading me better than I do myself.
What about my cohabitating buddy? Well, BF can get obsessive with new hobbies. And when he's all in, it's best just to leave him alone, even if it is 4am on a Tuesday and he's still up. Like video games - Call of Duty ruled his life for a while. Then it was learning all the ins and outs of poker. And most recently? Checking out conspiracy theory videos on YouTube.
Also, when we go out together, BF also almost always drives. He says it is because he likes the ride of his SUV better than my regular-sized vehicle, but I am convinced he thinks I drive like a maniac. I really don't ... for the most part, anyways.
For peace in the household, what matter do you "let" your loved ones win?
