Yes, Moving In With Your Boyfriend Before You Marry Him Is Okay

Some people think moving in with your significant other before marriage will only lead to disaster.

However, I think the exact opposite.

If you see a future with your significant other, why not move in with them?

Sure, there's a time and a place for everything, so there's no need to rush the living together part of a relationship. But, it's actually a great idea if you see yourself going long term with your boyfriend.

Living with your boyfriend truly shows if you two are made to last.

You'll learn so much more about who they are, and what they're made of.

You'll learn their bad habits, their good habits, their disgusting habits, and their frustrating habits.

Living with your significant other will be the true test of your relationship.

If you both can survive each other's bad morning breath, awkward sleeping habits, and messiness, it will allow you to realize that maybe what you have is real and long-lasting.

I mean, how much of a rude awakening would it be if you got married and then realized you cannot stand your boyfriend when he sleeps?

Living with your significant other before marriage is a smart way to ensure that you and your partner are compatible and won't end up resenting each other's weird tendencies down the road.

Plus, how cool would it be to wake up every morning next to the person you love?

If you've been thinking about moving in with your significant other for a while now, I suggest doing it.

Don't be scared, because living with the one you love is so rewarding.

Besides, in the case that you both realize you can't stand each other, then at least you have a chance to move on from each other before considering marriage.

Everyone wins in the end.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
