Can You Put The Toilet Seat Down? (He)

Sure babe, there’s nothing wrong with thinking about the next person to use the bathroom, it’s just not always something that is on my mind, although it should be, that is not always the case. I’m always thinking about something other than the immediate moment so my efforts to keep things clean, tidy and in order are slacking in many respects, not just the toilet seat. My shoes are never where they need to be, I throw my clothes anywhere I took them off and my plate is always the first in the sink despite my inability to wash a single one. I’m not a slob, I just figured there’s a better time to do these things and maybe there is no reason to do them at all since it’s not that big a deal to me.

I know and I see that now, and this is the point in our discussion, isn’t it? You are voicing your concerns and I am here pleading my case, there is no other way to communicate than to open ones mouth and let it be known though you can be pretty high maintenance.

She said: That’s ridiculous, you don’t pay for my hair, nails…

Point taken, I’m just saying, would it kill you to look before you sit? I mean, I’m not perfect so don’t expect so much of me, but then again, I don’t want you to leave me so I’ll have to be considerate of your feelings, points of view and the like with regards to us being together so i suppose you have more than just a point here and there so I’ll be fair. My lack of consideration can be broad and sometimes seem crass at times, but i assure you it is not with malicious intention. The very engagement we have on a day to day, moment to moment basis is a reflection of our growth together or apart. If my intention is to grow together then I have no choice other than to cater to your every demand, thought and whim and never bat an eyelash. In contrast, if i plan to grow apart then I will be combative, defensive and difficult at every step, not slightly considering your feelings in the matter (Speaking for myself here). I don’t expect anything more than I can express to you and I am no mind reader so simply bringing up the topic is of great importance if we plan on making this a long and fruitful relationship.
