and without having to nag gentle persuasion?

No matter how many times I ask my DP to clean the litter tray, she always leaves it to me!

I really do think its the small things in a relationship that make me happy lol

Close the cupboard doors in the kitchen
Use the bath mat properly
Not walk plaster and god knows what all though the house in his work boots
Rinse the kitchen cloth after use

Better stop or I could be here all night.

After three months of living together, my OH and I wrote a list of all the little things the other person was doing that annoyed us, and then we shared them over a glass of wine - committing to being positive to the feedback rather than justifying - and agreeing to change as many as we could.

We're still together 15 years later!
