Well yes, you spend every minute of your life with someone, talk about everything, do almost everything together, it's a bit hard for them not to. It's also necessary for the continuation of the relationship to ensure that lifestyles are in sync.....

In my last serious relationship, we did tend to pick up on each other's habits. It's amusing, really.

I don't think there's any way to avoid picking up things from your partner when you're living together. I've noticed we have picked up a lot from each other.

I suppose we play off of each other; it's what helps us maintain a healthy relationship.
