Happy Monday everyone!
I hope everyone has had a lovely Easter weekend, and has absolutely stuffed their face with choc! I know I have and I actually am feeling pretty rough today (I don’t actually think it’s because of all the chocolate). Luckily, I booked tomorrow off work so I could extend this long weekend and I’m so pleased as I am not ready to go back to work at all!
On with the post…..
I did a twitter poll asking if this post would be something people would like to read, and the response was pretty good and it was a yes! Therefore, I thought I’d write this as something for you to maybe relate to, or maybe as a bit of a heads up if you are planning on moving out.
I remember ever since I had got into a serious relationship, one of the first things I ever spoke about was moving out with them and getting a puppy and living happily ever after. Yes, It’s exciting, but I’ll tell you now, it really isn’t what you expect (for me it wasn’t anyway). My boyfriend and I lived together at his parents house for a while (Thanks Jane and Jeff!) and this was all dandy because like Mum’s and Dad’s do, there was dinner on the table every night, our washing was always clean and we had lots of disposable money. All thanks to them!
Reality is, when you move out and you don’t have these figures in your life anymore. You have to do it. ALL.
So here are some of what I think are the Pro’s and Con’s to moving out with a partner, take them as you wish, but I’ve certainly learnt a lot since July 2016!
- You get to see them most nights and don’t have to miss them ALL the time!
- Snuggles, EVERY night without fail
- You do have someone to tickle your back whenever you want it
- If your boy/girl can cook, you can have lovely dinners cooked for you most nights
- If your boy’s a DIY babe, anything goes wrong, then you don’t have to spend £100’s on getting someone in to fix it
- If you’re sad/upset and you need someone to talk to ASAP they’re there without fail, you haven’t got to FaceTime looking like a mess
- You get your own space where you can be silly and do what the hell you want without parents and other people thinking you’re weird
- You get to learn about one another and know them inside out
- You love them more each day and can’t imagine living without them
- You appreciate how important having your own time to yourself is
- Expect to see boxers on the floor, wherever you go!
- Don’t expect any help when you have to put the fresh bedsheets on (they don’t like the help)
- You almost get too used to each other and sometimes take them from granted
- Wet bath towels get left on the bed to smell the place out
- The bath does not get cleaned out after use so there are lots of black bits of dirt left to dry on the bottom
- You end up with limited money to go out and do the fun things you use to do, so you have to make use of time doing something thats free/cheap
- You have to sit there and watch/listen to them scroll through Facebook watching video after video
- You may even get moaned at for ALWAYS being on your phone/social media
- If they do a nice gesture (like cook or fix something) they tend to forget to clear up and leave the place looking like a bomb site
- You may argue a little more over the little things in life
- May end up getting slightly fatter as they are always a bad influence (mine is anyway, and he’ll probably say the same about me)
- Oh and ‘his’ toilet is always a disgusting mess (gross)
I could probably sit here and think of 100’s more points, but these are some of the main ones that stick out for me anyway. Obviously I know everyone’s different and some of you may have angel partners who are just perfect! If so, lucky you, as this shit is hard!
If anyone could think of anything else, let me know, I’d love to hear what you think!
