From my personal experience, living together is actually easier than people say. Your parents might have already freaked you out with the „you are too young for that” or „what about college”, but trust me… I was 18 when I moved in with my boyfriend, just starting out at university, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Of course, it has its ups and downs, but I believe it’s a very new, joyful and surprising experience that every young adult has to face at one point. And if you feel like you’ve met the right person and ready to make the next step, go ahead.
You will have to get 100% comfortable with him

No more “sneaking out to the bathroom to apply makeup before he wakes up” and no more “oh thank you, I won’t eat that much, I’m not that hungry”. It’s essential that while you are both adapting to each other, you both feel safe and comfortable to make this house your new home. You shouldn’t be escaping to your friends and parents’ house to feel like you can be comfortable and be yourself. At the same time, find the balance.
Although constantly looking like a mess won’t help your relationship, don’t be afraid to get ugly sometimes. Wearing oversized sweatpants and a huge scarf when you are sick or wearing crazy sheet masks if you are having a pamper day is all perfectly fine. You don’t have to be a perfect porcelain doll in front of him. I know it sounds cliché, but he loves you for who you are…not just when you are wearing a pretty dress and a full face of makeup.
