5 Signs That You're Ready To Move In With Your Partner

After dating someone for some time, you start to think more seriously about your future with that person. At some point, you may come to the realization that you are truly in love and that you'd like to take things to the next level. However, before you make any rash decisions, there are a couple of things you should still take into consideration.

Before you propose moving in together, you need to take a good, hard look at your relationship to see if it has checked all the boxes. Are things healthy between you and your partner? Are the feelings mutual? Have you discussed your future plans here and there? Read on for 5 signs that indicate you're ready to move in with your partner.

#1 You spend the majority of your time together

If you and your partner actively seek out any opportunity to be in each other's company, then you might be ready to move in together. If you already spend the majority of your time together, then living together probably wouldn't change your current dynamic all that much. The arrangement would likely be something that you both could easily adapt to your lifestyles. Of course, a couple of new ground rules would need to be set, and both sides still need to respect each other's personal space; but for the most part, the status quo would essentially be maintained.

#2 You're well acquainted with each other's habits

In order to live with someone, you need to have a solid grasp of the person's personality and behaviors, or else you might be caught off guard by something that ends up turning you off. It's important that you are well acquainted your partner's habits and understand what you're getting yourself into before you actually go through with the commitment. Of course, all couples have things they dislike about each other, but the whole point of relationships is to see beyond your partner's flaws and to make compromises. If you're able to do that, you should have no problem living together.

#3 You've overcome issues together in the past

Resilience is the mark of a solid relationship. If you and your partner have gone through rough times together in the past but have managed to work through them, then you've proven that your relationship has the maturity to handle the demands of living with each other. Inevitably, there will be times when you and your partner don't see eye to eye, so it's important that both of you know how to conduct yourselves properly in situations like that.

#4 You've both expressed interest before

Most couples that have been together for a while have likely discussed their future plans with each other. Typically, a person wouldn't keep dating someone if he or she didn't think they had a future with them. Keep open lines of communication with your partner on this topic—if it seems like your partner is also interested in moving in together, then there's a good chance that you're both ready to take the next step. If your partner seems to have reservations about the whole thing, then it would definitely be wise to give it a little more time before discussing the idea again.

#5 You can't picture living with anyone else

Lastly, if you just can't get enough of your partner, that's a good enough reason to consider moving in with him or her. When you think of your future, do you feel like they're the only person who you can build a home or start a family with? Do you love your partner with all your heart and can't imagine your life without them? Evaluate these feelings before you make a decision—the heart doesn't lie.
