The time has finally arrived and you are ready to move in with your loved one. Living with someone you are in a relationship is actually a little more complicated than you think.
The first thing you may have to do is get rid of some stuff. You have probably accumulated a boatload of things living on your own or with your buddies. It’s time to consolidate it and even throw a lot of the junk away. There’s no need for your sports trophies or music posters to make it to your new place. You must realize that you are sharing a space and space can be precious. Junk takes up space and your loved one will already have stuff of their own. It’s important to be fair in that aspect.
Be sure to give them and yourself some personal space. It’s impractical to always be right next to the person you live with. Sometimes it may be best to go for a walk or a drive. If you see your partner reading a new book, you shouldn’t blast your music. Be considerate and allow one another to have both time and space to do other things.
Finally, you have to learn to compromise with each other! You may have to purchase furniture or accessories for your new place. While doing so, keep in mind that both you and your partner will be living there so try to compromise. Purchase things you both like to make your new place a great home for the both of you.
