As the commitment level of a relationship continues to grow, at some point, either you or your partner might startentertaining the idea of living under the same roof. The things you’ll notice if your partner wants to move in together can range from pretty obvious to much more subtle. So, being aware of the signs that they're ready to share an address with you isprobably a good idea.
I spoke with NYC-based relationship expert and love coach Susan Winter to find out some of the ways your SO could be signaling they're ready to move forward. According to Winter, if you think your partner could potentially broach the topic soon, the most important thing is to consider your own feelings about possibly cohabiting in the future.
"Firstly, figure out how you feel about the situation," Winter tells Elite Daily. "Just because they want to live with you doesn't mean you want to live with them. Are you ready to take the step in your relationship?"
If the answer is yes, then great! But if you find that you're actually not ready, Winter recommends being honest and direct. "If you care for your partner and see yourself with them in the future (but not now), let them know," she recommends. "This is important information. You don't want bad timing to be interpreted as a lack of interest." Either way, here's how you'll know they've got cohabitating on the brain.
