From the Millennial generation onward, “Do you want to move in together?” has become almost a pre-proposal proposal. With less pressure on people to get married, more and more couples are trying out cohabitation first and seeing if it works out well, which, honestly, seems like a very wise path to take. But it doesn’t always go swimmingly…
Here are some anonymous confessions from women about what it was like after their boyfriend moved in.
20. All out of love
Guess the magic is gone.
19. Fight club
Are you gonna talk about it?
18. Low effort
It’s amazing how common this sort of shift seems to be.
17. Lazy days
He was probably always like this and you didn’t know because you didn’t live with him.
This is pretty d**n low.
15. Domestic disputes
Period of adjustment or just a huge mistake?
14. Power struggle
It can be disturbing when someone’s true colors come out.
13. Convenience fee
Nobody’s happy when the sparks stop flying so very quickly.
12. Moving on up
Of course, it’s not all bad.
11. S** and kisses
Some people just wanted to pop in to share their joy!
Boo for him being so controlling for sure, but, sleepovers? How old are you?
9. Dogs come first
“So now I am single.” You made the right call.
8. Domestic bliss
Gonna need a time machine for that, friend.
7. Absolute panic
Maybe you’re just afraid of what might go wrong.
6. Coupled up
It’s hard to keep friends as you get older.
5. Trick or treat
What could account for these kinds of changes?
4. The naked truth
Now THESE are the kinds of relationship goals we should all aspire to.
3. Opt out
S** or lack thereof is an important part of what people need out of a relationship.
2. Letting loose
I blame all my extra weight on just life in general.
1. Endless clashes
It’s sad how often you hear this sort of refrain.
Moving in is a big step, of course, and while not as huge a commitment as marriage, it’s still something you should make sure you’re ready for before you dive in. It’s well worth the time to carefully consider.
Do you live with the person you’re dating? How’s it going?
