We figured this would be as good a time as ever, since we both hadn't yet signed our leases for the next year. It's not exactly an ideal time in terms of rotations, but really, when is there a good time for anything? Also, we told my roommate she could have a few months to find a replacement if she needed.
I've never even considered living with a significant other before, so this is a pretty big step for me. This time is different though. We already "live together" for all intents and purposes, we just switch back and forth between our houses every night. The only time we spend apart is while we are at work. We take turns cooking for each other every night, and even help each other with chores, so I think it will work out very nicely. I'm very excited to be taking this next step in our relationship. I wouldn't have even considered moving in together if I didn't see this going somewhere long term.
