Moving in together is a really exciting time in a relationship. It's a big step that shows just how serious the relationship has become. It's also a choice that should be taken seriously and with a lot of forethought. Take it from someone who definitely used to have a "leap before you look" policy about cohabitation. Needless to say that, after the initial excitement, it didn't take long before we ended up staring at each other over a pile of unpaid bills wondering the exact same thing: Did we move in together too soon? (Yes. The answer was yes.)
Cut to a messy breakup and an even more dramatic moving-out scene. Lessons. Were. Learned. Anyway, if this is all starting to sound a little too familiar for comfort, there's a good chance that you also jumped the moving-in gun a little too early. If you're not sure, relationship experts say there are definitely some telltale signs that you rushed into living together and it's time to start getting on the same page before it takes a toll on your relationship or — if you're past that point — it's time to start thinking of an exit strategy. Here are the signs that you and bae moved in together too soon.
