With all the hubbub of moving to New Hampshire, I forgot to recap that my boyfriend and I have been living together for more than one year now.
Obviously, it’s been going well if we decided to pick up and move 5 hours away from our families. While I initially panicked on the night of our move in, I am so happy with our decision to move in together. I was so confident leading up to it and this really goes back to listening to your gut.
My thoughts when we decided to move in together were – what’s the worst that could happen? Well the worst that could happen is that we would break up and have to find new places to live and just have to go through a huge inconvenience. But the best that could happen, happened! We loved living together and decided to make this huge step and life change together.
And now that I have a good experience of moving in with my boyfriend, I feel that I can offer some advice. You’ll know if it’s right – if it doesn’t feel right, don’t move in together. While my boyfriend and I moved in together rather quickly, I can confirm that moving that fast isn’t for everyone. So listen to your gut. But also if you keep putting off living together, maybe you aren’t meant to be together.
One other thing to add is – you’ll definitely need your alone time. That fear of giving up freedom is very valid. my boyfriend and I see a lot of each other. But I signed up for yoga classes and he travels for work and we do eventually get these stretches of a couple days where we don’t see each other. That’s all we really need. We like being around each other all the time and that’s the most important thing to consider when moving in together.
