Your loved one's foibles. More endearing or a problem?

    Two things:

    1. He "nests" in the bed. That means I crawl into bed with a ton of blankets, books, laptop, pets, nook, food (yeah food) and anything else he brings with him to bed or is in his "nest". (I woke up with a skittle stuck to my face once, a dent in my cheek from his nook, and once, even his cat licking peanut butter out of my hair)

    2. He collects rocks. We went camping and my pack was heavy as hell. When we got home, as I was unpacking, I found a TON of rocks in my pack. What the hell dude?

    We can't be seen together wearing the same clothes or just the same color of shirt/polo/t-shirt. In the beginning I rolled my eyes over it, but now it is completely integrated into the relationship.

    I dated a guy that had many OCD-related behaviors and habits. The list was long, but I thought it was cute... To some extent, lol.

    Some stuff wasn't really affecting me at all, for instance, he would always eat the different portions of his meal in a specific order without never mixing (he would never eat a potato before finishing his salad, and then would attack the chicken), he would place all the glasses and cutlery in a very symetric manner, etc.

    But he also spent a LOT of time in the shower, had to wash his body all over TWICE, and to begin washing any part of his body, at to wait for his whole body to be at the same "water" temperature (yeah, I know, bullshit lol), and making his hair was like the end of time.

    But it was cute icon_smile.gif

    Did you tell him that it bothers you? If you did what did he say

    I agree to make him carry his own rocks. The nesting problem is to make him clean it before you go to sleep....what else is there to do. I don't think that should be that difficult....

    I sympathize. OCD is not an easy thing to live with, from a partner's point of view.

    I slept on the couch for 5 days. He finally came to me and we had a very brutal discussion. The result?

    He walked me into our bedroom and showed me a clean, new sheet, made bed with brand new sheets and .. other delights.

    He compromised. No more animals in bed. Ever. And he places is food dishes on the floor (for his dog and cat to lick clean ewwwwww) if he eats in bed. I'm happier, he's not so happy but dealing. We're good.
