Reading the End of Bachelordom got me thinking. I've never lived with a boo, and wondering what it would be like crosses my mind from time to time, of course. I have the tendency to get involved with guys that don't live in the same place as me, and while there are plenty of times where all I want is to very casually go over to his place after work for some snugging the long distance situation suits me in a lot of ways. Every now and then I'll tune in to what I'm doing when I'm puttering around the house alone and realize that I am a goddang weirdo and if I live with someone they're going to realize that even more than they do beforehand. Take the waterglass conversation in the other thread. It hit me recently that I hate drinking water out of glasses, and I think it's partially because I hate the idea of water sitting out in an open glass for a long time like that, since I'm usually sipping it more casually than juice or beer. So unless I'm in a restaurant I only drink it out of water bottles. If I don't have one to refill I'll refuse to drink water if it means drinking out of a glass until I'm so thirsty I can stand there chugging it until it's empty. Sometimes I end up accumulating a billion water bottles all over the place like a homeless person collecting them for change because I need one for my bag and one for my nightstand and one for my tote bag, and I don't know, a couple more for other reasons okay? I'm also terrible at sleeping, and besides worrying about subjecting someone else to that as they share a bed with me, I sometimes do weird things to try and go to sleep, like sleep upside down or sideways across the bed or on the floor. (I don't know why this works, it just does.) I'm sure I could create a whole list of things I'd be worried about sharing with and/or revealing to another person. Focus: If you don't live with a Romantic Other, what are you most worried about having them find out about or dealing with if you were to move in together? Alt-Focus: If you live with someone, what weird habits of yours were uncovered? Did you never realize something was unusual until they pointed it out to you?
