If you and your boyfriend choose to move in together then you need to avoid these mistakes.
Moving in with someone different is a big challenge. It sounds great and fun at the time to be around the love of your life 24/7 but it’s not reality.
You’re two different people, raised in different homes with a different set of cultural values and norms. Now two people put together in this situation will have to be very mature about everything.
These are the mistakes you need to avoid and things you need to be very realistic about.
Thinking it will make your financial journey easier
Sometimes moving in together may give you the opportunity to save on money but at the same time, you may find yourself tied in financial wars instead.
You need to agree on who will pay for what otherwise money problems will be the end of you.
Not being able to compromise on differences
You are two different people from two different backgrounds one of you will have to adjust to the other person. However, you need to be open to learn new things from one another and compromise on your differences.
Not having a life
Yes, you have now moved in with this man but that doesn’t mean you now let go of all your friends and everything just to take care of a home.
Men usually maintain their own lifestyles, they go hang out with their friends, go out and do their own things, please don’t be that girl who sits back to wait for her man in the house.
Lying you’re happy when you’re not
You have just moved in with the man you love but some things may be a bit strange and off as well. Please don’t lie to him when he keeps playing his horrible action movies, be open about the things you don’t like and lay down the rules ASAP.
Not doing things you both love
You are two people who have decided to live together so you need to do things you both love. You cannot live like roommates or housemates if you don’t take the time to merge your interests. Create a routine and schedule that will work for you like date nights or cooking nights etc.
