You've been dating for a few months and you are totally in love and practically inseparable. The idea has come up that maybe you should just move in together. With the sky-high costs of rent in the city it would just make sense wouldn't it? You are already at each other’s place every night anyway.
Your friends caution you though ‘Are you sure it’s not too soon?’ so you begin to question it. Is this really a good idea? What if you break up? What if you get hurt?
Here it is the #1 way to know if you should move in with him:
1) You want to.
If you both really want to move in together then do it. Who cares what your friends think, what your family thinks, or what happened to so-and-so when she moved in with her boyfriend to soon. The fact that you are reading this article proves that you have already made up your mind.
We constantly try to tip-toe around others expectations about what it takes to create a lasting relationship. You really want to move in together but instead of just announcing ‘Hey we are in love we are moving in together!’ you hear yourself say ‘Well with the high cost of rent it really just makes sense.’as if the logic of saving money is really logical at all.
It's love, it doesn't have to be logical. If you believe it will work, well you are the number one person who would know. You might get hurt and break up or you might be ridiculously happy and get married. You won’t know until you try and if you’re going to try, don’t apologize.
You’re not moving in because of the cost of rent or because your place is closer to his work anyway. You are doing it because you want to be together, all the time. You want to give this thing a real shot. You’re in love, it’s awesome, and you want to make it more awesome by waking up to each other every single morning.
