Questions to ask yourself....

Thursday, July 26, 2007
...before you move in, get engaged or get married is the subject of an article in July's Cosmopolitan. Well, way to go Cosmo! When I was looking for advice three months ago when the B.F. and I were discussing our future -- where the hell were you? So, since I already made the plunge, I guess it can't hurt to take the quiz.

Q-Am I moving in with him mainly to get distance from my parents or to prove that I'm an adult?
Answer -- Hell no. I proved to my parents I was an adult at age 12, when I found the house in the paper that they still live in.

Q-Was this decision prompted because it makes life more convenient or is a great financial deal?
Answer -- No and No. He's in advertising...that's not where the money is.

Q-Can I tolerate his daily habits?
Answer -- It should be the other way around...can he tolerate my daily habits?

Q-How will we merge our decorating tastes? Do either of us have items that we are not willing to give up?
Answer -- See previous post. He has this hideous chair that I can't wait to pitch as soon as I get the chance.

Q-Do I feel relaxed enough around him to reveal my flaws?
Answer -- I have none. Next question!

Q-Have we discussed duties? Who cleans and when? Or have we agreed to hire someone?
Answer -- I haven't lifted a finger! I think I've checked the mail once! Who needs a maid when you have a neat, organized and obsessive compulsive B.F.!

Q-Am I prepared to have someone always in my space?
Answer -- Yes, but not someone who likes to lock me out of the apartment on purpose and fucks with me when I'm on the phone.

Q-What do our recurring fights tend to be about? Do we believe that cohabiting will help fix those habits?
Answer -- He gets mad because I'm always right..duh..girls always are. Maybe I will rub of on him...

Q-Am I hoping this will lead to our getting engaged? If so, does he know that and share the goal of marriage?
Answer -- I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

I think I did pretty well on this quiz. Not bad for my first one.

Questions you should ask yourself before cohabiting

Q-Am I moving in with him mainly to get distance from my parents or to prove that I'm an adult?
Answer -- No, I did it because it made sense to live with him...I was there most every night anyway. Plus he asked me...so I guess he must really like me!

Q-Was this decision prompted because it makes life more convenient or is a great financial deal?
Answer -- Yes and Yes! He pays the house payment and I just sit and look pretty.

Q-Can I tolerate his daily habits?
Answer -- I think it's much harder to tolerate mine then his. His only major flaw is that he is incapable of shutting the cabinets! Ahhhhhhh!

Q-How will we merge our decorating tastes? Do either of us have items that we are not willing to give up?
Answer -- We didn't have to merge, I just took over and re-decorated his bachelor pad into a fabulous home for 2.

Q-Do I feel relaxed enough around him to reveal my flaws?
Answer -- I have none. Next question!

Q-Have we discussed duties? Who cleans and when? Or have we agreed to hire someone?
Answer -- I've learned to shut the door to the room I keep all of my things in since the mess makes him a little angry. He likes to tell me when its time to clean, fold laundry and vacuum. He is a very neat and organized person... well at least he was until I moved in.

Hire someone... hahahah he would never allow that!

Q-Am I prepared to have someone always in my space?
Answer -- Yes, not a problem. It is like a slumber party every night... PJ's optional :)

Q-What do our recurring fights tend to be about? Do we believe that cohabiting will help fix those habits?
Answer -- He gets mad because I'm slightly lazy and possibly that fact that I am perfect. He is coming to terms with me being perfect and he will be as well one day... that is after I am done training him!

Q-Am I hoping this will lead to our getting engaged? If so, does he know that and share the goal of marriage?
Answer -- Yes he knows very well that he would be the luckiest man in the world to be able to spend the rest of his life with me. Again I am perfect who wouldn't want to be with me! (wink wink)

No no all joking aside... I would be the luckiest girl in the world to land an incredible man like him!

Wow, I laughed so hard reading this. It's pretty awesome when you find someone so similar to yourself. I love the answers...I moved in with my bf in February and there was no merging....I tossed his junk and sold some of my junk and got new stuff, which resulted in a fabulous new apartment. I actually feel bad for him-I am a monster who somehow managed to charm this guy into sticking around. Perhaps it was when I introduced him to the concept of curtains to cover windows rather than a giant blanket. Ugh.
