Episode 078: We’re Moving In Together with Leanne Linsky and The Boyfriend
I have all the answers to your conversation on moving in together — which is a BIG move.
The Boyfriend and Leanne have their challenges ahead of them. He is used to living alone and no-one touches his belongings. He is a creature of habit and convenience for himself. The clean dishes stay in the dish drainer. It saves him time I get that. Also, his entry table is his stuff right where he wants it when he’s going out the door. What fun they have ahead of them!
Leanne must be a neat freak like so many females. Ladies like to clean and also LOVE
LOVE to decorate. Get ready for some surprises, Boyfriend. Sunday afternoons fill with browsing in stores looking for more pretty stuff. Yay! She will say the walking is just a great way to get exercise, especially on a rainy day. That’s (shopping and decorating) what we ladies all love. If that’s’ not for you.
You can always hide her car keys and purse, make some popcorn, and ask her to watch a must see football game with you. Will she be Ok with your idea? Maybe, maybe not.
Making a commitment to one another means making concessions on the homefront. If you can’t, there will be lots of needless stupid arguments in your future.
Otherwise, maybe a duplex will be the right move for you
