Fiance is AMAZING whenever my temper flairs – instead of responding in kind, he is stays very calm and validates my emotions.  I’ve never had a man do that.  His family is great and very easy going as well.

Truthfully, mostly everything. Living together is incredibly easy and we seem to be on the same page about everything major, we certainly have disagreements but we’re able to work through them and make compromises when necessary. 

We were friends before we started dating and I think its made it a bit easier. We really enjoy each others company; learning, experiencing things, and having fun together. I didn’t know relationships could be so easy, or enjoyable.

Honestly, and not to be braggy or annoying… but just about everything has been pretty easy and smooth.  Even when we argue or bicker, it’s short lived and we always make sure we explain our feelings so the other isn’t left wondering about why things affected the other.  Moving in together was easy, sharing finances was easy…

If anything were even slightly uneasy… well, I’m super shy, super! so I still am not 100% at ease when I’m around my in-laws, always trying to be good and helpful (but I know my quietness comes off as uninterested sometimes :S)… But we all get along and appreciate each other.

Life with my boy is just wonderful… I just love him so so much!

I would actually say the seem less way we got together. We liked each other, we want out, we were exclusive. It made me scratch my head like WAIT! This has never happened before, what is it?? What do I do!? Haha.

Living together…I was so nervous going into it but it was soooo easy. 

 

His family accepting me…we met pretty much immediately after he and his exwife separated and he brought me home to meet his mom and dad 3 months after they she had moved out (1 month after we had been dating). They welcomed me with open arms and have been super supportive and happy for us ever since. I guess when people say “when you know, you know,” it goes for in-laws too!

Almost everything! Of course, we had some hiccups when we first moved in together (mostly how to split chores, differences in cleanliness, etc.) but for the most part, everything has been incredibly easy. We are pretty much on the same page when it comes to everything. A good friend of mine always vents to me that she doesn’t know what her SO is thinking, they don’t communicate or talk enough, etc. But I honestly can’t really relate to her at all! We are incredibly lucky to have found each other and to get along so well.

For us it was sharing a living space and money. At first there was a couple of bumps but looking back it was much easier than I thought it’d be. I grew up as a very private person who preferred to be alone in silence and he is essentially the polar opposite of me… but somehow we are able to share space in a bachelor apartment and lump all of our cash together!

I was amazed at how seamlessly living together worked out. I have two boys~older and mature about it~and everybody get along fine.  They will all get together and do “guy things”–fishing, bowling, etc.  We keep three bank accounts–yours, mine and ours.  And my dear old cat adoress him {I should have listened to Chester when I was dating a few other men–he shied away from them and growled when they came to pick me up for a date}.  Chester simply loves it when Guy stretches out on the couch for a nap, he jumps onto his chest and they breathe together!  Cats are pretty good judges of people, I’ve found.

 

 

 

Sometimes if we do the grocery shopping shoppig we bicker about brands but on the whole everything has been going very well.

How easy it was for him to accept my son from my first marriage and to accept my past and all the drama that comes with it with such ease.

Living together – though not without its fair share of problems – has been very easy for us. That and putting everything in our name. Joint finances, joint car insurance, etc.

transitioning to being an actual exclusive, “we are dating” couple from what we were. We just fell into it. Way easier than we thought it would be.

@Sassyfras27:  Moving in together (we moved in after only 9 months of dating, and we were both only 18/19 years old). Merging finances. The in-laws. It’s all been pretty impressively smooth.

Living together! We moved across country for my job and moved in together at the same time. I was bracing for the worst… And it’s been amazing! We hardly ever fight.
