Neat freaks and slobs often seem to fall in love.

Opposites do attract and this area is no exception.

So what do you do if you find yourself in this situation?2

These are some tips to help with that.

1. You Need to Realize Neither of You Are Going to Change Your Natural Selves

You are who you are.

You aren’t automatically going to become a different person just because you’re in a relationship.2

You can work on your habits, but no one goes through an immediate transformation.

The same is true of your partner.

It’s best to accept each other as you are rather than fight against your natural personalities.

However, you can work on being the best version of yourself.

Have Some Separate Areas of Space in Your Home if You Live Together

My ex was disgusting. Wouldn't clean his ears, shower, cut his tonails, or brush his teeth unless I bagged at him. Didn't do his own laundry, didn't have a car. The most I would ask him to do was the dishes and the lawn. Since I did everything else and the dishes were always still dirty and the lawn was crooked with long strips uncut. It drove me insane. There has definitely got to be compromise, but there is also common sense and respect. A relationship is give and take, not expecting your significant other to do everything for and baby you like your mother.
