There’s nothing in the world sweeter than being in a relationship where both of you love and trust each other. But even the best relationships can’t be perfect; because both of you are human, there are going to be some things about your partner that annoy you (and vice versa!). The best and healthiest thing to do about those little annoyances is to acknowledge them with kindness and a sense of humor.
Recently, people took to Reddit anonymously to share the little things that frustrate them about their partners, and the results were fascinating. Some people found that their problems were pretty common, some people found that other people had already thought of solutions, and some people realized that their problems were way funnier than they’d originally thought.
We collected the best of these stories, ranging from the adorable to the weird to the teeth-clenchingly annoying. Read on for twenty-five stories of the things that frustrate people, even in the happiest of relationships!
