Avoid these mistakes when you start living together

The honeymoon phase in your relationship doesn’t continue when you move in.

When you’re in a loving relationship, you’re constantly looking forward to living together. You go on a vacation or a weekend getaway and you have the time of your life!

You’re lying there together after your second round of sex and thinking how great it would be to wake up next to each other every single day. If you already live with your partner, I suppose you laughed at this part. The honeymoon phase won’t continue if you make the following mistakes when you start living together.

Not respecting your differences

Your differences will become evident when you start living under one roof. Your partner could be a clean freak, so accept the fact that you will be nagged if the dishes in the sink don’t bother you. Now, you cannot ignore your differences, so you should communicate more with your partner.

Learn to respect your differences, but don’t act like you’re living alone; you cannot keep everything the same. Talk and make compromises. It’ll take some time to adjust to the shared life, but with good communication, everything is possible.

Not taking time for yourself

Yes, it’s crucial to talk honestly, spend time together, and be a team, but don’t lose yourself in the process. You can be in a team and make decisions together, but for one relationship to be successful, you must be satisfied with yourself first. Otherwise, you’ll be frustrated and that will lead to more fights. 

Your friends, side projects, and hobbies still matter. If you don’t make things that engage you as an individual, the frustration will put unnecessary pressure on your relationship.

Not creating a financial plan

Bad financial habits can be a deal-breaker. When you start living together, you should discuss all financial decisions and share them equally. Decide together how much to save, how to budget, how to manage the debt if any, etc.

It’s important to set financial goals together. Communicate honestly and regularly about money to stay on the same path and improve financial health. However, don’t stress about it, such topics are normal now.  Talk while you’re taking a walk or having a nice dinner.

Taking your partner for granted

You’ve moved in together, so you’ll stay together forever, and that’s it. Your job for the relationship is done. You start feeling as comfortable as possible, but that’s not healthy at all.

Your relationship still needs to grow and evolve and that requires a challenging environment, not too comfortable. You can’t stop flirting with one another! Foreplay doesn’t only happen before the act; it’s every moment of your interaction. So, be playful and have fun!

Speaking of sex, you must spice things up a bit! You won’t be having more sex just because you moved in together. I know it’s counterintuitive, but it’s true. Spend more quality time together, do different things together, and keep surprising each other.

Cook together. And yes, by cook I mean have sex in the kitchen, even on the floor! Talk dirty to your partner; speak what’s happening in your body during the sex. That will arouse the situation. You both do anything to keep your sex life interesting. Sex will remain a fulfilling and fun way to connect even after your honeymoon phase.

Signs that you shouldn’t start a relationship

To protect yourself and not get hurt, it would be smart to pay attention to some signs before you start a serious relationship.

In some situations, it is more than obvious that the person you are seeing will be the perfect partner for a serious relationship, but sometimes their behavior can make you doubt it.

Below you can see the warning signs that you should not start a relationship with the person you like at the moment.

They constantly cancel plans

How many times have you prepared to go out with this person, and they canceled on you at the last minute? It can happen to all of us to cancel a plan because something unexpected has come up. But if this happens too often, then this person does not value your time or you at all. Therefore, do not waste your time with them.

They hide you from everyone

It is normal at the beginning not to tell everyone that you have someone new in your life. We all have been there – we are not sure if we will continue to see that person, so we keep things to ourselves. However, if you see each other for a long time and this person is still hiding from your friends, something is wrong.

Do they avoid going to a restaurant or any public place and always suggest going to their place or yours? Do they always find an excuse not to meet even their best friends? If yes, ask yourself why.

They still complain about their ex

Maybe they are just whiny, or they might have unresolved issues with their former partner. You do not have to listen to them. Trust us – that never ends well. Your dates shouldn’t feel like counseling sessions. You do not have to keep all your romantic plans aside because you have to console them. 

They are NEVER available

This is one of the signs you should never ignore. You do not want to be with a person who never replies to your messages, doesn’t take your calls, and NEVER calls back. How do you expect them to be there for you when they don’t even take your calls? 

They do not want you to be friends on social networks

Social networks are an important part of our lives today, so if the person you like uses them but does not want to be online friends, they are hiding something.

Calling you only at night (or when drunk)

If this person likes you, they will not think of you only at night or when they are bored. If you have noticed that they call you and send you messages only in the evening or after drinking alcohol, it is not worth spending your time with them.

signs

They change their attitude all the time 

One day they treat you like you are the most important person in the world for them, but the next they forget that you exist. Did you go out with this person and have a wonderful time, but the next day they did not write you one message? Well, this person is not interested in you, and you shouldn’t hope that they will change.

They tell you that they are not ready for a relationship

But that is confusing, right? They don’t want you to be in a relationship, but they still flirt with you and call you? Although it is difficult to accept this, they are probably just using you. If you want something serious, but they always have an excuse why not to start a relationship, it is time to find someone else.

Break up if you cannot imagine the future with your partner 

Does thinking about the future freaks you out? Well, you should break up if you cannot see your partner in the future. Don’t get us wrong – we are all about staying in the moment instead of looking ahead into the future. However, if you cannot picture your partner beside you on your best adventures, well, that is a bad sign. 

If you hold your current partner without intent for plans, you are limiting both of you from finding true happiness. Just ask, “Where do I see myself in 1 year?” Now, did you see this person with you?

You feel bored or stuck 

Sorry, but you probably need to break up if you are not satisfied regardless of what you do together. If you have tried everything together from rock climbing to trips, but you still disengage from your partner when you are together, it may be a sign to move on. You should break up particularly if you constantly imagine how your life would be different without him/her and the vision is tempting.

Break up if you do not feel like a priority

Do you continuously feel insignificant, neglected, or not cared for in the relationship? There is a major difference between a person who is busy with commitments and a person who simply does not make time for you. If your partner is neglectful and inattentive of your needs, despite your efforts in communicating your needs to him/her, well your partner is not valuing the relationship and you. Your partner will never be capable of meeting your emotional needs if they lack adequate relationship skills.

You are on different pages

If you feel all the time that one of you is more “in it” than the other, then maybe it is time to end things. Okay, it is normal for feelings to seesaw a little bit. However, if you feel like your partner is so into you and you are only meh about them or vice versa, then your relationship may have been doomed from the very beginning. You cannot force someone who does not want to be in a serious relationship to want one all of a sudden. You have to accept that is not the one if the timing is off. We know that and this is one of the hardest lessons anyone has to learn.
