if you’ve been doing this and are tired of it, maybe you should consider moving in together. Here’s why:
It teaches you how to share
Are you the ‘I don’t like sharing’ type because you were raised as an only child? Moving in will help you get rid of this bad habbit. This teaches you to let go of your personal space and privacy. You had the whole carboard space in your house, but now you have to make space for him.
You set realistic expectations
When you’re living separately you tend to create this perfect picture of an ideal relationship in your head. This gives you an inside view of what reality is like for couples and that there’s no such thing as ‘perfect’.
You’ll pick your battles wisely
Because you’re in each other’s faces so much, you learn to differentiate between issues worth fighting for and those that are just trivial. Unless you want him to think you’ve assumed the role of his mom, you’ll treat him as an equal.
Accept that he’s human
You sometimes get your grumpy and moody moments for no reason right? So does he. Sometimes he’ll wake up and not want to talk, you didn’t do something wrong, he’s just being human.
It helps you compromise
For your relationship to work, you both need to learn how to accommodate each other’s likes, and dislikes. You’ll probably tell him a hundred times to put the toilet seat back down but he’ll still leave it up. After some time you accept that that’s how he is. As much this annoys you, he’s probably alaso annoyed by the hair stands you leave on the floor each time after brushing.
We can argue about the negative aspects that come with moving in together but the great thing about it is, you have fun, lots of it.
