Hey guys! ❤
So, something kinda big has happened in my life and so I thought I would share this with you guys!
Me and Kyle have moved in together! *fireworks and party poppers go off*
To me this is a huge deal as I have never lived with a partner before so this is a pretty big step! I thought I would give you guys some tips on how to make this type of decision and how to keep yourself calm throughout the transition!
So, I have three top tips that may help you with the decision making process about whether to live with your partner or not!
1. Don’t let anyone else influence your decision.
This is vital. This is a decision between you and your partner, no one else. You can ask advice and discuss this with people, obviously, just don’t let someone tell you what to do unless you really cannot live together for finance or other reasons.
2. Don’t feel pressured.
Making a big decision that will affect your life is hard to deal with anyway, but feeling pressured by your friends, family or even your partner to swing one way or the other is something that can happen easily.
You shouldn’t ever feel pressured to make a decision that affects you. It is your choice. Go with your gut and go with your instincts.
3. Don’t freak out too much.
Moving in with your partner is a big decision, however the worst thing you could do to yourself is freak out or allow other people to freak you out about tiny things once you’ve made the choice.
Remember that you made this choice and you’re happy with it!
The main thing that has kept me calm throughout this decision and organizing process for the logistics of Kyle moving in with me is how much I miss him when he isn’t with me in my flat. Even if I am in the bedroom reading and he is in the living room watching TV I just love knowing that he is there and that I am not alone 🙂
This wasn’t an overnight decision, however, it wasn’t a difficult one either. We discussed it casually for a little while then we started really thinking and discussing the logistics and we then decided that it made more sense. Kyle was spending 99% of is time in my flat so the payments he was making on his flat didn’t make sense anymore as he wasn’t living there, he was living with me essentially! So this was a big deciding factor as, even though it is a big step, we already pretty much live together anyway so it wasn’t that much of a big deal to us 🙂
We have some organizing to do of the order and arrangements of the flat as well as some petty arguments ahead of us as we won’t be able to escape each other but I am very confident that this is the right decision and we will work extremely well together as a team ❤
