A Third Of People In Relationships Say Their Partner Is The 'Most Annoying Person' They Know

In a study that will surprise no one, apparently the person you are closest with ends up also being kind of annoying.

Researchers from LG Electronics wanted to see how people perceive their loved ones and whether they get on your nerves.

They interviewed 2,000 people and the results were interesting.

They found that a third of people in relationships listed their partner as the most annoying person they know.


The data revealed these hotheaded individuals spend as much as a fifth of their day being frustrated with their significant other because of 'snoring, passing wind, loudness, messiness and rudeness'. That's nearly five hours of being annoyed.

While bodily functions can't usually be helped, it appears there are other personality traits that were popular in the study.

People get on their partner's nerves because they 'never listen', 'talk through TV shows, are 'bad with money', 'using their phone mid-conversation', 'leave clothes on the bedroom floor' and are messy in the kitchen.


Man, it seems like there are plenty of things that will get people ticked off.

Marina Clowes, from LG Electronics, said: "It's no surprise to see some of the most common annoying partner habits that Brits have voted on. I'm sure we can all relate to some of these."

They admitted that they wanted to do the study to see whether their tech devices would help alleviate some of these issues.

"It is interesting to see how many of these can be solved if you have the right smart technology products at home though, like TVs with algorithms that learn your preferred viewing genre, noise-cancelling earbuds, and even steam closets to revive your 'floordrobe' items'."


Look, unless my smart fridge is going to stop my partner scrolling through Facebook while we're having a conversation I don't think tech is going to solve these problems.

Now, while these results are kind of depressing for people in relationships, there was a tiny nugget that was promising.

Forty-one per cent of people who responded to the survey said that they wouldn't change their partner's annoying habits as it's what makes them them.
