My SO and I have been together since last October, and we are slowly trying to figure out the next steps in our relationship. We are currently living together in an apartment. I am working full time, while he is finishing school and working part time. Both of us are looking for new jobs in the area, and since our lease is up in April, we will have more of a choice of where we live based on where we get jobs. However, if we choose not to leave, we can stay at our apartment and rent on a month by month basis.
I have a steady full time job with benefits, but I’m absolutely miserable at it. I’m really trying to find something else, but not having much luck. He has already started looking at places to apply, though he will not have his degree until December. We don’t know where we will be living because we don’t know where we’ll be working and vice versa. Is anyone else’s life completely up in the air, too? Is this what it’s supposed to be like in your mid-20’s or should things be more concrete than this?

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice: Ugh that happened with us about a year ago. It does get better. I hate not knowing what’s going on or what’s going to happen. It makes me crazy but it’s all better now and even tho I am still looking for full time job we are making do.

I can totally relate..
We live in between a few big towns and both just graduated from university and college. I have a job. but it is a contract in research and I will have no idea what will come next because of funding.. and he is landscaping for little money while trying to find an engineering job.
Although we are both comfortable getting engaged now, it makes things hard to plan or anything when everything is up in the air like this.

Can totally relate!
I graduate in December, waiting for my job to start in the next few weeks. SO is in FL for a 5 month long stint (til Jan 4th) for an intern. I currently live with my parents, but we’re looking for a place starting in Oct. to hopefully get Nov-January. We don’t want to be in my parents house when he comes home.
However, He doesn’t get a paycheck for a few weeks and I haven’t had one for 2 months. When he gets back he will go to school (full time) in the Spring and work part time (where, I don’t know).
So, basically us moving out all relys on if I get this job in a few weeks. Once I get this job, we’re set.
Hang in there! Seems like others in their mid twenties have it all figured out…we’re working on it!
