20+ Things You Will Know If You’ve Lived With Your S.O. For More Than One Year

Relationships are not always candle light dinners and hot romance; the journey has to offer a lot more. As much as you tread carefully in this path you have to move on to further steps ahead filled with responsibility and awkwardness.

No doubt one big step is to move in with your significant other, or more precisely the S.O. That’s the phase when you really get to know each other and realize that just like you, nothing is perfect in this world.

The moments can be filled with awkward positions you sleep in, the irritating habits and the disgusting farts, but believe it or not this is when you get real close, loving the imperfections as well as the perfect person you have dreamed of. That’s true love.

Let’s explore the possible life you’ll have when you move in with your significant other. You can either relate to some of the situations or if you are in a planning phase to move in, just a heads up!
