|"What do you mean negotiate?"|
If you live with a non-collector, negotiation becomes even more important. People generally like to hear a little bit about something you're passionate about - they don't necessarily want to hear a 3 hour discussion on the minute details of Pony variants. This is even more true of living with your collection. A non-collector might be supportive, but they won't necessarily want to see Ponies in every room of the house, every day, in every little nook and cranny. Keeping the goodwill of your non-collector cohabitant by having frank discussions about space and expectations (on both sides) and sticking to those decisions will keep the three of you (collector, non-collector, and collection) living happily together for years to come.
