seven years. yes!
hahaha! you def want to take your time. Having to get all your or his stuff out of the apt or house shared is a total nightmare! <br />
Dated 3 months, moved in, 2 weeks later we got married. Married 3 years, now... getting divorced. <br />
Good luck and remember, take your time. :-)
I dated my first husband on and off for only a month before it happened. One night he slept over, and that was that, he never left. We had ten wonderful years together and two children and were both happy as clams, until the day he died. But I truly believe this is the exception. My advice would be to spend a much longer time getting to know each other before moving in together.
Makes sense...in my case, it doesn't feel one sided, but the ups and downs are wearing on us both
