Five Tips for Moving in with Her
We asked our expert for a few ways to make the transition easier.
4. Keep Dating
It's tempting to let your romantic side slide as you begin to live together. After all, you see her all the time. This, Steinberg points out, is a big mistake. Get out and do stuff. "Just because you’re living together, it doesn’t mean that you two should spend every night on the couch," Steinberg says. "Get out of the house and engage in fun activities together to remind you of why you decided to live together in the first place."
5. All the Small Things
In or out of the doghouse, it's important that you remember why you're with her, and that you continually do small things for her even when you're complacent in your living space. " Small gestures of appreciation such as picking up her favorite flowers every now and then can go a long way toward having a healthy and happy relationship," says Steinberg.
