Unless my gf takes a shit on this upcoming interview she has on Tuesday, all signs are pointing to getting a job back in Chicago and we'll be moving in together June 1st. I'll be 28 in June and this will be my first time having a roommate since '08, and have never lived with a girlfriend. Hell this is my longest relationship to date. Now I'm really excited, and while I was at her current place for two weeks, we actively tried to talk about things we know are habits and preferences, but we all know you can't be prepared for everything. Focus: What did you wish you knew going into living with your SO? What surprising things did you learn afterwards? Did you guys talk much about what it would be like living together beforehand? Did that conversation translate into reality? Alt-Focus: Co-habitation horror stories, shit that went wrong as soon as you moved in. Gross/weird/fucked-up habits you witnessed that you couldn't believe were the person you've been smitten with. Alt-Alt-Focus: For the newbies/former lurkers that never shared any good (see: bad) roommate stories. *Need this cleaned up a bit, I'm in a weird mindset now and can't shop this up to be more clever.
