I wouldn’t mind living in the same apartment complex or house neighborhood, and just spending the night at eachothers place on occasion. I understand that its technically causing us to spend more money than necessary, but I really like my space and have no interest in shacking up. If we’re at least engaged, then I’m okay living together. But even if living together, I’d have joy in knowing that we have the option of separate bedrooms for when we want to sleep alone or have that extra space between us. It doesn’t mean I love the person any less. It doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy seeing them on occasion. I just don’t need them in my face every morning/night. Hearing my ex suggest rekindling and me moving up north with him just makes me cringe. Even back then I told him I’d rather just live near one another rather than together. And hearing my current think that I’d HAVE to live with him if I got knocked up is sweet, but not necessary. I’ll probably have mood swings while pregnant and he's probably better off at a distance. #FeelFreeToList
While unmarried, would you feel more comfortable living with your current/future significant other or having your own place? Why?
If I agree to move i with someone before ENGAGEMENT, then I see myself agreeing to be roommates (with separate bedrooms) just so I dont have to feel like we’re shacking up. That way i still get my own space AND we can sneak over to eachothers rooms whenever we’re feeling some type of way. The living room and kitchen will still be shared of course! But i prefer my own bathroom. Plus i’d occasionally have my own bed! Oh yea, This works for me
