My SO and I have been together for almost a year (it'll be a year in a few weeks). I am totally ready to move in together and see how things work out. I feel like that's the only way to know for sure whether our relationship is going to work for sure. I just signed a lease so I won't be able to move out for 6 months and I feel like after 1.5 years of dating, a couple should be ready to move in together. My SO doesn't feel that way. He thinks its too soon. And he doesn't want to make his brother find his own apartment with his girlfriend. Am I moving too fast? How long after you and your SO/DH started did you moved in together?
We moved in WAYYYY to soon, lol. I dont think a year and a half is to soon to move in together
SO and i have our one year coming up in April.
he proposed in August.
he moved in with me and DS in September
we are having the wedding August 17th
We moved in together after 8 mths and I was 4.5 mths preggo....almost 6 yrs later we are still together!
We were only dating 4 months when we got our place together but I had been staying with him pretty much the entire time. Course, by then our very unexpected DS1 was on the way already. I got pregnant the second time we ever had sex, 2 months after we started dating. He proposed after 16 months of dating, we bought our first house after 21 months of dating and were married after 22 months of dating. We've now been married almost a year.
Quoting *Tawni*:" My SO and I have been together for almost a year (it'll be a year in a few weeks). I am totally ready ... [snip!] ... own apartment with his girlfriend. Am I moving too fast? How long after you and your SO/DH started did you moved in together?"
I think that is an excuse for him. I would proceed with caution.
I don't think there's really a set time limit on these things (obviously moving in on the first date isn't a good idea, but you get what I'm saying). As long as both people in the relationship feel that it's the right move, then I think it's okay. If he's not ready, then don't pressure him. Six months is enough time to change his mind. Just bring it up again towards the end of your lease and see if his feelings have changed any.
My SO and I have been together just over a year now. I don't think we're ready to move in together. Not that I think it'd be terrible, but I'm just really enjoying our arrangement right now. If it isn't broken, don't fix it!
Don't focus do much on timing it's whenever you two feel ready. There's a reason as to why he doesn't want to move in yet give him some time and then being it up. My boyfriend and I have been together going on 7 years this May and we have yet to move in. I myself don't want to jump into something that I know I'm not financially able to. So like I said give it time
SO and I have lived together since day one. In June we will have been together for four years, but we have known eachother for 18. It all depends on the people involved.
everyone is different. My last SO... we were looking at houses together after 6 months. (brokeup though because of custody issues, neither of us could move to where the other lives)
current SO... we've been dating a year. I wouldnt event hink about moving in with him.
We moved in after a year and a half but it was because of his living situation being compromised. I would have waited way longer otherwise. It strained our relationship but we're both stubborn and made it work.
You're an adult and you know when you are ready! I think 1.5 yrs is plenty of time and you know this is someone you want to take the next step with!
My hubby and I moved in after 6 month and bought a house together after 1yr after that! 6 years later and it's definitely worked out :)
Well, we were engaged 6 WEEKS after we met lol, but we still didn't move in together until after we got married, 5 1/2 months later :lol: (no, I wasn't pregnant lol...lots of people assumed that though). We're about to celebrate 9 years of marriage :D
I don't think it's too soon at all.
