3. The Messy One

Some people have no problem with messiness and that's their prerogative — you know who you are. These messy acts may have been tolerated at home, but now you have a new person or group of people with which to attempt to live harmoniously. You don't have to become Mr. or Mrs. Clean, but get in the habit of doing your dishes before they become a science experiment, cleaning your bathroom periodically and keeping the mess in your bedroom to a minimum. If you encounter living with a Messy One, make sure to chat about messes in the common shared areas. You aren't responsible for the upkeep of their bathroom or bedroom — unless you share.
