PretendBee:  we dated 4-5 months, then were LDR pretty much for    almost a year. Then I moved to his city. I rented my own apt for a little more than a year and then he moved in after we got engaged, married 8 mos later. 

-It took me about 4 months to find a job after moving to his city. He had a job and it really, really sucked being in a new city trying to get a job and not knowing anyone but him. In my ideal world I would have landed a job before I moved to be with him but the timing was off. 

-it was weird at first when we were around each other after being LDR for a year. But we gave it some time and got into a routine and soon it felt like we’d never been apart.

-I think it was good for me to live in my own place in the new city. it did help me establish my own identity here. 

-i think living with anyone is an adjustment. I was scared when we made the leap but I was kinda shocked by how it was totally fine. it seems smart to me that you are living in your own place for a bit to Ease the transition from LDR to living together.

-FWIW it was kinda a bummer planning our wedding away from my family and friends. I wished i had my close friends and mom around more during the planning process, but of course it all worked out.

I hope this helps 🙂 Congrats on the upcoming engagement!!
