SO and I are FINALLY ending our short stint of long distance in 10 days, but instead of us spending like 1 or 2 hot, steamy nights together, he’s moving in for a while.
Its totally temporary. His new place is still being built.
But still. Ahhh!
I think I’m excited? Also nervous? I dunno! I just have a lot of feelings. He’s calling it a trial run because he wants us to officially cohabitate when my lease is up, so maybe that’s where this is coming from.
How did you guys feel when you and your SO started living together? Was it an easy adjustment? Fun? Stressy? Any tips?

It was sooo easy for me! We basically spent all our time at him place anyway!
The only issue for me was my depression was much much more obvious when we saw each other all the time. But he was and is such a sweetheart about it so it’s not really a problem. I was just scared I’d scare him away.

Mattyfeets: We finally moved in together after four years of dating almost exactly a year ago. It was a breeze. The biggest issue was who slept on which side of the bed – we both like sleeping by the wall. Definitely talk over anything you think might be an issue first and be willing to compromise on silly things! Drove me nuts at first the way FI makes the bed (still does occasionally). He doesn’t tuck in the sheets/blankets very tight at the bottom. I like very tight sheets on me. FI does not. It didn’t click at first that it was really because he’s so damn tall that if the sheets are tight, it actually hurts his feet! Also, definitely work out any money topics – who’s paying for what – well before actually moving in long-term. That way it’s not a surprise when it gets time to pay bills.

A bit stressful for us… I still haven’t been able to find a place for about half the stuff I have from my old house. And I’m still trying to teach my darling husband that dirty clothes go in the hamper or they don’t get washed. Ultimately though, even though we’ve decided that our relationship can’t take another move for about 10 years, we’re beyond thrilled to not have to drive six hours round trip for a day-long visit.
