I'm getting ready to move in with my boyfriend of five months some people are telling me it's irresponsible, my relationship is doomed etc etc. So I'm wondering if maybe it's true... How long did you all wait and did everything workout? What was the biggest downfall.
How long did you wait to move in with your significant other?

After a year or so. Personally, I know as you get older it can be faster as expenses are a huge burden, so it's easier to move in to also save money. But also it can ruin your relationship if you're going to fast. However some relationships who move fast do work out, just not as likely.0

It's very fast, but it sounds from other comments like the burdens of time and distance could become as damaging as being together 24/7 ever could. I hope it goes well; good luck!0
It's always healthy to learn what it is like to live together. I've heard of people who met on vacation and decided to get married while still on the SAME vacation. Just remember to give each other some free time too, bumping into each other all the time may seem like to much to handle at first.0
4 months. It was when I was 18 and I'm still with him at 21. Only downfall was him being messy and his friends coming over and being messy. Don't listen to people who tell you what's right and wrong in a relationship. If it feels like the right decision for you then go for it 🙂 Only you know what's best for you.0
We waited almost 2 years.
But, we were also long distance.0
Never rush into moving in together0
I waited until 3 years in. We're doing fine but I feel it would not have worked earlier. You should wait a while longer.0
