You’re not sure

Everything inside you should tell you it’s the right time and you both need to be on the same page about this. If you still have uncertainty, you might want to put this on hold for a while. Moving in with a partner is a big step. Your emotions and finances should be ready to handle the pressure that you’re going to encounter.

Never been on a vacation

If the only time you spend together is a couple of hours a day then it’s safe to say you haven’t had a taste of what it’s like to live with the ‘real’ him. Baecations test your love, patience, and tolerance levels, basically you’re entire relationship. So, If you haven’t been on one of these it’s best you start planning right away.

On and off relationships

Often, couples going through a rough patch rush into moving in together thinking it’s the best solution to the problem. However by doing this you’re just adding fuel to the fire. Now that you’re together all the time, there’ll other bad habits you pick up from him that’ll probably lead to more fights. Make sure you’re stable before taking your relationship to the next level.

Unstable finances

The one major thing most couples complain about is finances and if this is still a shaky topic we advise you continue living separately. For peace of mind, it’s best that you share costs equally, hence, one must not feed of the other. If not, you might end up resenting your partner.

It’s still early days

Anyone who’s ever been in love knows how gullible it can make you. You tend to not think logically, and it’s totally normal. However this isn’t a good time to big decisions. First test the waters and see if truly you can survive waking up next to the same man everyday.
