I don’t currently live with my boyfriend. I would say we sleep together on average two times per week. We have talked about moving in together but have not officially decided. After moving in together does the amount of intimacy tend to increase? What about after getting engaged?

My SO and I waited four years to move in together. I’d say for the first few months the intimacy increased and then we kind of fell back into our routines. It’s been nice living together mostly because he’s the first and last person I see every day. It’s a good time and you learn a lot about each other. The hard part is waiting for the engagement if SO gets too comfortable,though.

I feel like intimacy has increased for us moving in together but everyone is different!
It’s like getting to have a slumber party with your best friend every night. Lots of late night giggles. 🙂 It’s so much easier living together because I missed him so much when we didn’t.

@Kacey23: When we moved into our apartment intimacy increased. Then when we bought/moved into our house, again, we had a big spike in intimacy. But then it kind of mellowed out, we got back to normal (3 times a week on average). I think when you’re in a new place and are making some new commitment it tends to make you feel more connected and you express it through sex.

I find that I define intimacy as being different than sex. We are more intimate now then we were before we lived together. We cuddle, have late night chats, and experience a stronger unsexual related intimacy.
In terms of sex: in the beginning it was more frequent because it was more accessible. Now, after three years, we’ve settled into our routine. (which can vary between once a week or four times.) It depends on our schedules at the time.
I completely agree that you feel more connected and it is often expressed through sex.

Well, before we moved in together we lived 400 miles apart, so yeah we have sex more than every 3 months now XD. I think when you live together you find a groove that fits your sex drives and schedules.

The only thing that really made our sex life change was the noise….We have been living together since January(dating 2 years) and before he bought this house last June, he was living with his two best friends, who were home like 75% of the time we were there. So not that Im “loud” or a “screamer” or anything, it was nice not having to be quiet because we had to, and its awesome not turning the TV to 80% volume every.single.time we fooled around Lol
Now intamcy however, we snuggle more when were watching TV and things like that, and I love it. I like that our sex life is regular/satisfying for the both of us and that it hasnt fluctuated, and I doubt it will ever change.

I’d say that FH and I had sex more before we moved in together, but we had more time. He wasn’t working crazy hours, didn’t have school and I didn’t work either. When we bought the house and moved in together, we had both started working, we both were back in school and there just wasn’t any time. Usually by the time FH got home from work I was already asleep. Now that I’m not working, we have a little more time, but not a whole lot because I’m still in school and I have a lot of studying to do. We haven’t had sex in a while, but I’ve got Thanksgiving break coming up so we’ll have some time to get back in the swing of things then 🙂
