Just the other day, I realized that The Boyfriend and I have been living together now for two and a half years already. I tried to imagine what it would have been like if we got separate apartments when we moved to Taipei City, and it made me feel very sad, because I absolutely love living with him!
As I haven't made a "Top 10 Tuesday" list in a while, I thought I'd share the Top 10 Things I love most about living with The Boyfriend.
1. He gave me 3/4 of the closet
And by that I mean that I took 3/4 of the closet with minimal protest from him. Sometimes he'll joke about my clothes migrating to his part of the closet, but we both know it's actually my closet, and he just gets to keep his clothes in there.
2. He catches, kills and disposes of creepy-crawlies
... and the most important thing, he knows how much I hate them, so he never chases me with it.
3. I get to have a sleepover at my best friend's every night
We can stay up watching movies, playing Wii, cooking or just talking. Even on a school night.
4. He takes out the trash
The one household chore I absolutely hate, is taking out the trash. So The Boyfriend offered to do it. Which means he has to rush home after work to catch the garbage truck at 22:30. I love him!
5. He lets me decorate the apartment
... and pays for half of it.
6. He makes me feel safe
Having a strong man in the apartment every night, eliminates any scary thoughts I might have of someone coming into our place and hurting us.
7. He takes care of me when I spend all my money
Hi, my name is Liesl and I have no self control when it comes to my salary. Yes, that happens. He will give me a little crap about it, but will not think twice about feeding me for the rest of the month.
8. No matter what happens, we go home together and deal with it
If we're out and have an argument, we have no choice but to go home together, which usually forces us to talk about it and deal with it that same day.
9. There will be no surprises when we get married
After living together for two and a half years, I can confidently say that I'd be able to happily live with this man for the rest of my life.
10. He does his part of our household chores without complaining
... and he'll even do mine sometimes, just because he's so damn nice.
