Every relationship experiences milestones. The first time you meet each others friends and families, the first time you say “I love you”. One key milestone you and your partner might reach is moving in together. This is a really big move.
You are upping the intimacy in a major way. Just like any other milestone you hit in your relationship, it is definitely important to consider some things before you and your partner take the plunge and share an address.
1. Observe their current habits.
If you are at your partner’s place, check out what kind of living habits they have. Do they clean up after themselves if you’re eating? Is their room halfway decent? Sure, they’ll be at their best when they know you’re coming over, but little stuff tends to show itself.
2. Discuss your goals.
It is important to have a discussion about your plans and goals for the future. Living together is a huge part of this. If you aren’t on the same page, what is the point?
3. Be upfront about finances.
It is pertinent that you are honest with your partner about your finances. That way you can pick a place within your budget, and then budget together.

You keep finding yourself attracted to the same kind of people....

Everywhere you go you seem to see couples, and you can’t help but admit that you have re-downloaded all of your dating apps after having had deleted them for the fourth time. It seems as though once the smell of pumpkin spice hits the air, thus begins the ritual of cuffing season. You might notice a lot of people getting into relationships during the fall and winter months. This actually has a lot to do with basic human instinct. Animals tend to couple up...

It is one of the most painful feelings in the world. It feels like you’re bleeding everywhere, but no actual blood anywhere. So how exactly do we move through our massive heartbreaks?

Bella Breakdown Have you ever had the unfortunate circumstance of being in a relationship with someone that most of your friends and family don’t like? Yeah I think we all have.
