Ahhhh, the joys of moving in with someone you love…or someone you’ll at least love for a little while. Maybe? I don’t know, every situation is different, but it does seem like there’s a whole lot of growing pains and unexpected twists and turns when two people move in together.
If you’ve been through this experience, these tweets will be very relatable.
1. Sounds awesome!
Since moving in with my girlfriend, 70% of our conversations are about area rugs. Apparently I *do* have opinions on them!

2. How romantic.
I moved in with my girlfriend after 1 year. People say we're rushing in but we're both so in love with saving $900/mo.

3. Your SO is gonna love it.
Writing a love poem called "Put the Dishes in the Dishwasher, but Not Like That."

4. Might have to accidentally “lose” that.
Moved in with my boyfriend. Agreed he could have creative control of the living room. I now have to live with a creepy Julianne Moore cushion. pic.twitter.com/gnhHnhiYXb

5. The things you’ll learn!
The best thing about moving in with my girlfriend has been discovering the wonders of fabric softener.
Have you used it?! Oh man, it's like wearing a hug all the time.

unexpected downside of moving in with my girlfriend is that now she knows I watch the a star is born trailer before bed every night

7. A real treat.
Some would look at it as though I moved in with my girlfriend. I view it as being the unwitting beneficiary of 15 boxes of scented candles.

8. Go outside if you must.
"I moved in with my boyfriend. Now I feel like my life is one big held in fart."

9. Just like paradise.
I thought moving in with my girlfriend would be all sunshine and rainbows until I discovered it’s a constant cycle of watching her scroll past my tweets without liking them and finding strands of hair on every article of clothing I own

10. It’s all about the books.
I’m moving in with my girlfriend in mere weeks and we have gotten to the point of planning where I am loudly proclaiming “LOVE ME, LOVE MY BOOKS.”

11. A wee bit obsessed.
Apparently, moving in with my boyfriend meant having to live amongst a shit ton of Donald Duck items 😂💕 pic.twitter.com/mJq24PAmcm

12. Used to just be storage.
A major change that happened when I moved in with my girlfriend is that I now have a medicine cabinet with actual medicine in it.

13. Hope you have a big place.
Just moved in with my girlfriend. We have 150 plants, 73 carabiners and 14 exfoliating mitts. All’s right in the world.

14. Now she knows.
[Just moved in with my girlfriend]
HER: *About to join me in the shower* Hey sexy.
ME: This is my cry time.

15. And after the breakup, too…
