    We decided I was going to move in after about 3 months but I was trying to make it to the 6 month point before doing it…. I only made it to 5 months before I moved though! We got engaged 2 months later.

    My Fiance and I were LDR initially, but we decided after 2 months that we wanted to be near each other.  He ended up moving in with me and we’ve been together ever since.

    8 1/2 years, haha! But we started dating when we were 14… We moved in together after we’d finished four years of university.

    @princesslettuce14:  “So bees, am I just a slow mover? Is it normal to move in earlier in the relationship?”

    i think it’s different for everyone. there’s no normal. i moved in with DH after 7 months but he had roommates so it wasn’t our place by ourselves. i got along with the roomies until i moved in and then all hell broke loose. they didn’t want to accept that i was a paying roommate (even though they agreed to me moving in because one of the other roomies moved out) so if i had a problem with something someone did, i got called a bitch for bringing it up (nobody else got flack for bringing up issues). it was ridiculous. i moved out after 3 months and lived on my own for 6 months before we moved in together again (in our own place that time). so we didn’t permanently move in together for over a year.

    We were pretty much living together from the getgo (staying at each other’s place every night) and dating for 3 months when he officially asked me to move in.  The actual move came 4 months later after we completely renovated his condo.

    ETA: We lived together for 2.5 years before we got engaged, and got married 11 months after that.

    We dated a year and 8 months before moving in. I wouldn’t consider it before the one year mark, but that’s just me!

    Unofficially, it was just like one month. But officially it was 4 months.

    we moved in around 4 months but only because my lease was up and we didn’t want to  wait another year. (month to month was going to be super expensive).  It worked out, but had my lease not been up we would have waited longer I’m sure.

    Hah, only 5 months. I was renting a house with a roommate at the time when her fiance was offered a job in Guam. I didn’t want her to be apart from him for year just because of our lease and my now husband offered to move me in to his house (we basically knew at the time where this relationship was heading anyway). So we broke the lease, she moved to Guam, and I moved in with him.

    I think it all worked out. :p

    Together in September, moved in by May.  We lived together for 2.5 years though before getting engaged.


    (We did know each other a bit prior to really dating though, so I don’t know if that makes a difference.)
