  • However long you take to know you want to really do it.
    When thinking about waking up next to this person does not scare you, when you are sure you can handle a dirty toilet seat and are aware of the responsibilities a common household brings.
    You need to be somewhat sure you two are compatible in the small stuff as much as in the big stuff.
    Different cleaning habits and different mess tolerance can be a big issue. Think kitchen, laundry, cleaning etc. It seems trivial, but if you can not STAND any socks casually missing the laundry basket or freak out over a dirty dish in the sink, get ready to be picking shit up all the time and to be annoyed often. If you match there, it's a good start :-)

  • 5-10 mins. is appropriate. After all, you have to fetch your toothbrush and goldfish.

  • It depends on how intense it is. It could be months or it could be years.

  • I have been wondering the same thing and it seems that the general consensus is at least a year! That's good to know =) I personally need to wait until I have a better paying job so I can actually help with the rent... As it is, the most I can afford is gas. That new job will probably take a year or two to find anyway.

  • I was taught you don't move in with your partner until you are married.
