Making compromises

He wants to operate the air conditioning system 24/7, at full blast

Whenever you start dating someone new, there is a lot to discover and work out. In the first few weeks or months everything seems amazing between the two of you. You meet up and go out for fun activities, such as eating dinner at fancy restaurants or attending local concerts together. It’s all fun and games when you’re just getting to know each other and there’s no pressure on the situation. When you start spending more time together, however, things quickly start to get a lot more difficult. Even before you are living together, you start spending a lot of time at each other’s places. That’s when fights start happening over simple things such as doing the dishes or setting the thermostat appropriately.Or, at least that’s what my boyfriend and I fight about. We are locked in a constant battle over the thermostat and our respective preferences for air quality control. We both have some pretty strong opinions about the best indoor air quality and preferred air temperature. Personally, I’m a fan of relatively warm and natural air. I would rather operate to the air conditioner for only a few hours each day. I don’t like to keep the house sealed up all summer long, because I think the air gets stale and stagnant. I prefer to open a window once in awhile, even if it means the house will be a bit warmer. My boyfriend, on the other hand, cannot stand warm or semi humidaire. He wants to operate the air conditioning system 24/7, at full blast. When you mention natural air to him, he recoils in disgust. That would all be well and good, except we spend most of our time at my house. I keep telling him, as soon as he wants to pay the energy bill, he can operate the AC unit all day long.
