People who live with a roommate tend to be messier, a new study found.
That’s much lower than the 95% who live with a significant other and regularly do chores or the 89% who live alone.
One in five people who lives with a messy roommate say they’ll only tidy up when they know guests are coming over.
Nearly half (47%) of the 2,000 people surveyed say they’ve been in a relationship with a messy person. One in five say they’ve broken things off because of it.
Here are the ‘messy things’ Americans are guilty of doing:
- Not making the bed 47%
- Having dust collecting in the corners of the room 35%
- Having clothes on the floor 33%
- Seeing spiderwebs in their room 31%
- Having expired food in the fridge 30%
- Having a messy car 29%
- Having paper everywhere 28%
- Having an unorganized/chaotic closet 27%
- Not using coasters 26%
- Collecting a pile of dirty dishes in the sink for more than 24 hours 26%
