One thing I can't stand is when he either doesn't lift the toilet seat and pees on it, or he does lift it and doesn't put it down again, whats so hard about aiming!

The one issue I had was I needed things my way. When you live on your own you get used to a certain way, and of course the first guy I lived with didn't do anything my way and it drove me crazy until I realized that there is more then one way to do things. And not to sweat the small stuff. I think this may have been more about control with me, I needed to feel in control.
Now that I am with my FI (we have been living together for 4 years) I don't feel the need to control everything. Good luck.

For example, cleaning/housework is a major thing. I'm lucky because I have a guy that doesn't mind cleaning. Granted, he's not going to just jump in and do something because he sees it needs done (most guys aren't like that). But if I ask him to clean the bathroom, he will (including the toilet, which totally blows me away!!!). Housework is probably a major subject to contend with and decide who is going to do which tasks. We split chores pretty evenly. I cook and he cleans up afterward. I clean living area/kitchen and 1 bedroom, he does bathroom and bedroom. I wash laundry and he folds it.
Another subject is money and being able to determine how to merge your accounts and budget, as well as who is responsible for paying the bills, investments, etc... When we first sat down to talk about it, the first thing FI said was that he pays his bills, he just has a hard time remembering to get the payments sent out in time. Well, that's about all it took for us to decide I'd be in charge of the money.
I think the hardest thing for me was simply the adjustment to having someone else in my living space--- finding dirty socks on the sofa in the morning, or magazines scattered all over the place and papers just laying around. It drives me crazy, but I just ask him to put things away and he does. It's kind of like living with another teenager--- I can tell my daughter to put her CD's away and the CD's will wind up sitting on the floor in front of the CD tower.... She gets close to do what she should, but not quite all the way there yet...

Our biggest hurdle is integrating my dog with her two cats. It is going to take some time, but even then I am sure they will end up loving eachother.
I say we are doing pretty damn good if our biggest issue is how our pets are getting along.
