  • After Marriage. Not a fan with how our culture blends the pleasures and entitlements of marriage to dating. I'd rather take time to truly get to know someone and if I can see myself spending my life with them than I'll move in after the wedding.

    • I have found it really helpful to live with my boyfriend before marriage, because it really helps you get to know each other on a different level, so you can find out if you’re right for each other. It may not be for everyone, and that’s fine, but there are definitely some benefits.

  • I would move in after dating, before marriage or engagement. Make sure we would be compatible in living together before that step.
    And as for how long into dating, it would depend. If I could I would move in with my current boyfriend right now if I could and we have been together 2 months. With my ex, we were together 6 months and I wouldn't have moved in with him for much much longer had we stayed together.

  • I wait until she asks me to. In every relationship I've been in, whether I move in with her, or she moved in with me, "our" space ended up being hers. So now I keep the essentials in storage, in case it doesn't work out.

  • When you can deal with them for 6h a day

    When you can put up with the shit that really pisses you off like leaving the toilet seat up or them consistantly using their phone while talking.

  • Maybe I've just been in weird circumstances, but most of the time my relationships get serious pretty quick and we're living together inside 3 months.

  • In my case, I would give it a good couple of years no matter what. We would be over each other's homes overnight by then, so we would be familiar with each other's habits and whatnot. Even before this, we would have a talk or various ones as to how the whole thing would work in different scenarios.

  • My boyfriend and I moved in together after about two and a half years. But we also knew each other and friends for several years before we started dating.

    • I think as a general rule you should wait until you have been together for at least a year, can see yourself marrying the person, and have reached an age where you feel ready for the commitment of cohabiting. I wouldn’t have wanted to move in with an SO before my mid 20s.

  • It depends on the situation. My boyfriend didn't have a great home life, so he moved in with me after just six months. In most situations I'd prefer to wait though.

  • When I feel like I'm ready to. With my first boyfriend I moved in with them after 2 years. With my current guy I moved in with him after we had been together for a couple of months.

  • I wouldn't do it until at least a year into a relationship. It takes a minute to find out someone's true colors!!! Made a mistake with my last ex, let him move in right away!! :( BIG FUCKING MISTAKE

  • After dating. I want to live with that person and look at the guy's face everyday to see what it's like before jumping into marriage, or it's going to be a trap

    • I agree. Would you make yourself to wait a certain number of months, or would you just wait until you both feel ready?

  • I moved in with my guy after 4 weeks. Been together now 14 months.
