Have you ever dated someone who was extremely messy and got a little too used to you cleaning up their place?

One woman has found herself cleaning her boyfriend’s apartment for him more than he does, and she’s realized that she’s been enabling him.

She’s 26, and her boyfriend of four years is 29. She lives in a studio apartment, while her boyfriend lives with a roommate his age.

She’s very passionate about baking and loves baking on the weekends but can’t do it in her apartment, as it doesn’t have an oven.

So, when she visits her boyfriend on Saturdays, she likes to bake in his kitchen and use his oven. However, one major issue has been getting in her way.

“I believe that the first and last steps of cooking [and] baking are cleaning,” she said.

“[Neither] my boyfriend nor his roommate takes care of their kitchen. Every time I go in there, it’s like walking into a frat house where there are days-old dirty pots and pans on the stove. The sink is full of dishes, and the counters are covered in trash and food scraps.”

At first, her boyfriend and his roommate told her they had a chore chart and waited to clean the kitchen on Sundays, so that’s why the place was a mess when she came over on Saturdays.

However, over time, it became obvious to her that the “chore chart” was a fantasy, and the guys were bad at cleaning all days of the week.
