When your relationship is stable enough. When you have had fights where you think you would never recover from but you did. When you have established unwritten rules in the relationship. When you know that person like the palm of your hand. When you have gone on trips together without wanting to kill each other during that time. I'd say give it at least two years. Believe me, I moved in with my ex after 6 months and it was the worst mistake I ever made. You have to be at a point where you can deal with someone being in your space about 90 % of the time.
Hmm I think it depends on where you both are at in your relationship, like if you're spending heaps of time together at one house and another and don't rush out when you can to get your personal space, might as well move in together because one person is not staying in their home enough for it to be worth the rent lol. Moving in will obviously be a change, even if it's an increase of seeing that person 10 more hours than you usually do because you live with them, I would say go for it when you feel its right, if you end up moving out, you move out if it works, it works!
I would say 2-3 years. The reason why is because I moved in with my ex 14 years ago just free two months and the guy before him was only a month. So, I wish I wouldn't have done that but, life's situations had put me in difficult circumstances at that time.
I moved in with my ex after 8 months of dating and we broke up two months later. It was pure HELL because we continued to live together almost two years after our break up. I think after a year and a half/two years you really get to know the person to an extent where you can be comfortable with each other's habits and know that living together you won't annoy the crap out of each other.
It really depends on the couple and the dynamic of the relationship, and whether or not each of them can make plans for the far future that also include their SO. If you can't do that, then you're not ready to move in together.
To give you an arbitrary time frame, I'd say at least a year. Although my husband moved in with me after only 10 months or so (the last half of which was an LDR). He came back to Canada with a renewed visa, no money, and no place to live, lol.
I would say at least a year. That way you know that you're fairly committed and you probably won't cut and run at the first sign if trouble. Still, get a lease that you can afford on a single salary, just in case.
My ex husband and I lived together from the time we started going out. Our situation was different though. His sister was my best friend and I moved in with them and we started dating 3 days later and 6 months later we moved into our own place. Depends how much you like the person and want to invest that kind of time with them.
I don't think there is a good exact "time". It all depends on the couple... If you two have talked about it and you feel like youe both ready, then do it. It could be two months into dating, 8 months into dating, 4 years into dating, or when you both get married. Whatever feels right to you.
Whenever you guys have a great understanding in your relationship. Have already been through a few disagreements and reg. Relationship stuff. There's really no time limit, it depends on the two. If you have actually spent the night and stuff and exposed how you live and such.
I don't know I never moved in with a SO but if I'm going on dates it means that I am not having sex with those guys. An exclusive relationship is something completely different for me
I read somewhere that it's better to do a trial run before you permanently move in together. Also I think it's good to move in because you love each other not for money issues that way it's not like living with a roommate
I was going to say at least 8 months, but read the comment below. Lol. I guess the amendment I would make is, be sure not to sign a long lease or get something you cannot afford alone if it doesn't work out? Lol
Oo is someone getting therious? ( and yes that lisp was intentional ) lol in all seriousness though have you talked with her about it at all or brought up the idea? her reaction should give you a general idea.
And honestly I think if you've been dating at least 4-5 months to a year that seems like the decent amount of time to go to that point but I find the mindset to be of more importance like are you or is he ready for that?
If you are but aren't sure if she is then just kind of bring the topic up in a conversation and like I said above her reaction should tell you more. If she seems receptive to it then talk to her about it and see how she feels.
I don't know if there's a specific time per say but I think at the very least you've to set your priorities straight before moving in together. It shouldn't upset the other things in your life like time for your friends and work, if you can balance that out. You're ready for lift off. It can be really gratifying if you do it right. Big step bruh. Good luck.
Dude it is a massive step. You need to make sure you are willing to give up everything you have and cared about. Once a female moves in, NOTHING you used to own will be good enough to keep. Your belongings will end up in a box in storage.
Honestly I feel like 2 years is probably too soon even, I'd say 3, and I think it would be ideal to try living together (at one of your houses) while you both have separate places for at least a year before getting rid of one of them. I'm younger than you but yeah that's what I'd do because living with someone too soon and not making great decisions about our living situation really badly affected a relationship I've had before before.
