Today I move in with Kevin for the first time in the 6 years we have been dating. I cannot even tell you how excited I am! We tried doing it a few times before, but I do not think we were ready. I think I was kind of scared because moving in with him would mean we would have to split bills and worry about money together. Money is the root of a lot of break ups and I was terrified that would happen to us.
We have grown so much as a couple over the past year it is insane, I know now that I have no hesitations in living with him. We agree on so many things financially too, which is awesome. For example, we are all about paying off our school loans before making a huge investment like a house. After talking more openly about these things I have become so much less afraid of sharing my life with him.
It is also an amazing thought that he may be my roommate for the rest of my life! I used to be so scared of huge commitments, but he is the only one who has made me more comfortable with things like that. He brings out the best in me. :)
I know I haven’t gotten this personal in ages on this blog, but I felt like a post like this was due. <3
