It might be because I'm young but I've never really liked the idea of moving in with a SO but at the same time I have nothing against a committed relationship. I've always thought it'd be ideal if I lived in my apartment while they lived in there's. We would basically spend 4-5 nights a week being together so we'd really only sleep alone in our respective places for maybe 2-3 days a week. I like the idea of just having two separate places to live and having a little bit of privacy. I don't have anything to hide but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy actually having privacy. I also like picking them up and dropping them off in the night. Or if I have a home date it's nice preparing having the place to my own
I understand it would cost us half the money to live together but I just feel that isn't as ideal. But a lot of girls think I wouldn't be serious about the relationship if I wasn't thinking about moving in. They think I wouldn't commit. Relationships end because of the very discussion couples have about moving in together. Every other part of their relationship might be almost like a good dream but then it all comes crashing down when they have disagreements about moving in together. Just because I don't want to "officially" live in the same place doesn't mean I'm not serious about them. I don't know, is this just weird of me?
Also I appreciate the people that actually took the time to read this brick of text...

You're a bit young for all that especially if marriage isn't on the horizon. What are the reasons for cohab? If it is simply because you are spending most nights together and to save money this is almost always not a good reason. You then also have to start sharing bills and if you guys have different approaches to handling money this will further stress the relationship.0

Interesting notion, I am a fan of minmaxing finances and as such would think maintaining Two households would really increase expenses, but if you can afford it, then sure.
I actually had a friend whose parents lives like that. Each of them has their own house, but they are neighbours! I wonder how they managed to get enough resources for that, haha.0
