    I’m a big believer in ‘when you know, you know. I moved in with my boyfriend after six months. We’ve been together seven years, have lived in five homes and have a son. Be happy 🙂

    Love is always worth the risk! We moved in together after 10 months and at the time it was seen as ‘too soon’ by everyone but 23 years and 4 children later, here we are! Ha! So hurray for love I say and congratulations on moving in together x

    My gf and I started living together basically immediately. When we met I was living in a studio flat, but was moving somewhere bigger in 2 weeks. She was living with her parents after giving up her flat to travel in Asia for a few months. She helped me pack up the old flat and move to the new one even though we’d only been official for about a week and… then she basically never left. I think it’s also just PRACTICAL to live together sooner if you plan on that being the end result anyway! Why should we be paying separate rents only to spend half our time in each place? So many people live with roommates they barely know. This economy!

    Also, in lesbian culture, it’s actually A Thing for couples to hook up, go through all the early relationship stuff really fast, and be practically married within the first year. We were living together after a few weeks, OFFICIALLY living together after 4 months and got a puppy together at 7 months. So I think A LOT of the whole Waiting Until The Right Time thing comes from old-fashioned ideas of heterosexual women remaining chaste until marriage and basically being passed from the family home to the marital home.

    This post is adorable! I loved how you worded it and how easily you incorporated the watches/the sponsored content. I don’t think there’s ever a right time for these things – to move in together, to get married, to have children. You just go with your gut feeling. I think this is also dependent on age and experience: You now have all these experiences you mentioned under your belt, so it’s easier to trust your gut feeling, because it’s developed, if that makes sense. I’m rambling on – I’m just really happy for you and wish you both all the love and happiness you deserve xxx

    My husband and I have been together for nearly 8 years now. We moved in after about 2 years – we waited because we felt like we were supposed to wait, but both of us felt ready earlier. In retrospect I just wish we had done! x

    I moved in with my boyfriend after 9 months. We’ve been together for 12 now and married for 4. Congratulations to the pair of you – wishing you a lifetime of love, laughter and leg-overs x

    Vix, I bloody loved this! My boyfriend and I moved in together on our 6 month anniversary and it’s hands down the best thing we’ve both ever done. If you feel like you know someone, and love them more than anything then the only thing that matters is what you both want – screw anyone else’s opinion! I wish you both SO much happiness, because Christ knows you bloody deserve it! xx

    Every situation is unique and no one is entitled to an opinion but you. My partner and I moved in together after two months.

    Absolutely loved this so much Vix, me and my fiancé moved in after 7 months and everyone thought we were absolutely crazy but sometimes you just know. So happy for you, wishing you so much love. Xx

    I love Daniel Wellington, their watches are just to die for!
    I think that everything should be done when it feels right, there should never be a time scale to anything!

    When my partner and I had been together 5 months a lot of people thought it was weird we hadn’t moved in together. The culture of your local area will affect how people react. I live in Aberdeen and people are quite happy to go full steam ahead with their relationships. And you never truly know someone until you live with them.
    Best of luck building your home together. I wish you both lots of happiness.

    I literally love everything you write! Also laughed out loud at the Carrie Bradshaw comment. You should definitely follow your gut with this, if the time is right the time is right. As long as you’re both happy that is all that matters.

    I’ve been with my husband almost 4 years now, married for 16-ish months, and we moved in together after 3 months. Maybe it was “too fast” but I wouldn’t change a second of it. Good luck to you both x

    You’re so right, if you were 18, moving in after 5 months might be a bit too short but it’s all perspective and whatever feels right for you! Alice xxx

    Nah. I moved in with my boyfriend after 5months of long distance and we got married on our 3 year anniversary ?? when you’ve waited in another relationship it makes you realise that life is too short to be sensible sometimes.

    This was beautifully written! I’m so happy for you, and I wish you all the best in your future together. I’m loving the watches, too!

    As ever, loved this! I am all for jumping straight in. I met my now husband in the December, went on a two year back packing trip, living in a car and hostels, with him just 8 weeks later. We are still together, 26 years later. Life is short, if it feels right, move your lovely man in xx

    Josh moved in with my after 4 months – we just knew. People thought we were a bit mad at the time but it didn’t feel odd, and now we’re married! Good luck with it all Vix, you deserve it. xx

    Me and my partner moved in after 3 months, technically 6 months but I wasn’t interested in him for the first three so I don’t think that really counts. ANYWAY, Even though its defiantly NOT been smooth sailing, we have lived in three different houses, been to 3 different countries and we are now having a baby together. All in three and a half years. When we broke up for a while everyone said it was because we moved in together too fast. BULLSHIT. It had nothing to do with it. I moved in with an EX after two years and moved out again (and broke up) in just two months of living together. It was a learning curve. JUST GO FOR IT! If it feels right then it usually is, even if it all goes tits up, it usually was meant to happen anyway.

    Love this post Vix, your posts are always funny, honest and heart warming.

    Much Love

    I love this post! As someone who’s usually too cautious to jump up relationships – I’ve been burnt to many times before – I love this. Sometimes you’ve got to throw caution to the wind and just go for it! Time is relative and shouldn’t be the thing you live your life by. Good luck with the move and have fun creating many more happy memories in your new home together!x
