    I live with my Fiance but I’d probably just let myself in, although with a warning I’m coming over. I always feel like boys do weird things when we’re not around that would be super awkward to just open the door and see.

    When Darling Husband, then Boyfriend or Best Friend, lived at his own place, (well with roomates), yes I let myself in with warning.  I’d knock incase someone was there but if no one was I’d let myself in.

    Well I can’t vote, but I do let myself into his place.  He’s given me permission to, though, we talked about it and I know he’s okay with it.  If he wasn’t, I would always call first.

    My first boyfriend of 6 years…I never let myself in. I don’t even know why he gave me a key but I def wasn’t “allowed” in his apt if he wasn’t there. No way. He was a complete psycho though.

    My current boyfriend, I had a key to his place during the first month and damn near lived there so I would let myself in and out all the time. I think it just depends on the relationship you have 🙂

    We have our own house now, but back when we lived separately, I used to let myself in.  Only when he was home, though, and he pretty much always knew when I was coming over!

    When I had the key to my then bf’s place, I used it.   He had a roommate, who wasnt there for months at a time, but even when he was, I’d let myself in.  He knew I pretty much lived there on the weekends.

    Before Fiance and me moved in together, I practically lived at his house. I was over all the time, and him and his roommate were always leaving a door unlocked for me. They just didn’t want to go through the effort (ha!) of getting a key made, but looking back it was probably a bad idea to have an unlocked door so often. 

    Why do you feel uncomfortable in your FI’s house? Is it new?

    I’ll take this as before we lived together.  Now that we live together, it IS my house too, haha.

    I’d let myself in if he knew I was coming over.  I wouldn’t just sneak up on him or anything.

    I said no only because my Fiance lives with 2 roommates and didn’t figure it was fair to the roommates for me to come waltzing in.  Fiance has a key to my place (which will soon be his) and he lets himself in.

    I had a key to DH’s place about 2 weeks after we started dating. He lived alone (with his son) so there wasn’t a roomate issue or anything. I always let myself in.

    I had a key to my former FI’s place but I was raised that you knock on doors, locked or unlocked before entering a room/hearing a “come on in.”

    Before Fiance and I lived together I was allowed over anytime. He lived in a condo tower and he let the concierge  know to always let me up and after a few months he just gave me a  key fob to get in the building (I didn’t need a key to his door he never ever locked it) I always went over even when he was at work his old condo tower was about 5 mins from my college and I lived about 30 mins away so in between class I would go over.
