Who needs longer time in the bathroom for the shower, you or your partner? Does anyone of you has a daily routine to do every morning that's why you/your partner takes a longer time? For us, it's hubby who consume longer time. He has a 30-minute daily routine to shave his face and his head. He is bald and we want it to be clean looking so he shave his head everyday.

Oh Marie, hands down it is my partner. I only take 5-10 minutes, but my husband takes up to 30 minutes or longer and that is just taking the shower itself. When I get out, I am dressed within another 5-10, but he, instead of drying off with a towel, sits around in his bathrobe for 20 minutes, so that is probably another 1/2 hour. So from start to finish, him=one hour me=20 minutes max

hehehe..that's good to know that we aren't alone in this situation. LOL... I mean it's funny sometimes to think that our husbands are mote curious about it. When it comes to putting on clothes after shower, it's me that requires more time.

Between hubby and I, it is me who takes longer time in the shower or bathroom. Whenever I take shower or take a bath, I usually take half an hour or more. The reason for that is ... I also clean the bathroom when I take a bath, scrubbing the floor and so on... that is the reason why I take longer to be inside the bathroom. But even when I dont want to clean the bathroom, I really take time to take a bath.

So, far in the responses here, it is only hubby & I that have an opposite situation. hehehe.. I might consider cleaning the shower after using it, usually I have it later when I already put on clothes.

You're right friend. I might consider doing that. I do start cleaning in the living room, kitchen and rooms early but the bathroom is somewhat the last and I feel tired already when I reached there. I might change my schedule now. hehehhe

Wow! you really much time for preparing yourself before going to work. That's so good to know that you're able to do that. For me, I am really a morning person. I find it difficulty to detach myself from the bed. That's why when I was still working, I need to rush myself. hehehe

Hmmm...it's hard to tell 'coz I don't work yet, so he gets up earlier than I do, but we don't have any daily routine. Hubby doesn't shave every day. Generally speaking, I think we both spend about the same amount of time in the shower he he he...because when we shower together, we finish at the same time. The only difference is probably it takes a shorter time for him to wash his hair 'coz it's almost bald whereas I have long hair he he he...

Oh, I definitely take longer than my husband. He's usually in the shower for 10 minutes at the most and I'm in there anywhere from 25 minutes up to an hour. Sometimes I like to shave my legs or just relax while taking a nice hot shower. Other times I like to cut my shower short if I'm in a bit of a rush. But no matter how quick I try to be, my husband wins hands down every single time. :P LOL

I think my partner takes a longer time in the shower than I do. I'm not in there very long, especially when I'm at school. I go in, do what I need to do and get out. She seems to take a bit longer than I do. Sometimes she'll take a soak in the tub, and then she'll take her shower, so that definitely means she takes longer than I do.

hahahaha! funny Marie! We really are in almost the same situation. I normally spend 30 minutes in the bathroom but my husband spends loooonger than that...Just like your hubby he shaves his head and beard everyday.. sometimes it pisses me off specially when we're going somewhere and he'd ask us to get ready while he's still in the bathroom. Me and my son ends up waiting for him for a long time coz he's still not done with his routine.

Would it be nice if I'd say that we both take the bath and hit the shower together, or not?!LoL It is me who does more time in the shower, I need to scrub alot, fromface to body and then wait for the conditioner to have it's effect on my hair after rinsing it. I am now sporting a long hair, which I take care the most since it is wavy and sometimes I love the way she strokes it!;)
