10 Awesome Perks Of Living With Your Girlfriend
By Top10BestDatingSites Staff
Thinking about moving in with your girlfriend, but chafing a bit at the commitment? Same sex households now account for 1.2 millions of the households across the United States. With 8.4 million gay or lesbian identified individuals in the country, that means that a full quarter are presently living together, and half of those are likely lesbian couples living together.
And why not? There are a lot of benefits of living with your girlfriend -- and many of them far outweigh any potential downsides.
1. You Immediately Expand Your Wardrobe
Is your honey about your dress size? Hold on -- is she your shoe size? The second you move in together, you double your wardrobe options. And there has to be something attractive in the style that drew you to her in the first place, right? That's to say nothing of the endless scarves, bags, jewelry and other accessories that can now be shared freely!
2. Your Best Friend Is Always There
There's nothing like proximity to make hanging out convenient. Instead of having to drag yourself to her place or her drag yourself to yours, you've got an always-on friend right at hand. Whether you want to bake or play a co-op video game, your girl is there for you -- and with no more "your place or mine?" awkwardness.
3. You Never Have To Wait “Just Five Minutes”
Is your girlfriend always late? Did you have to wait 30 minutes at the bar for her to show up after meeting on Compatible Partners? Or... maybe you're the "always late" one. We aren't judging! Either way, that's not going to happen on your dates anymore; there's no more waiting when you're already leaving from the same place. (You might want to adjust your dinner reservations to compensate for the slowpoke, though!)
4. You’ve Got Someone to “Get Ready” With
Everyone knows that last minute dash to look perfect just before you run out of the house. But when you have your girlfriend nearby, you've got someone else to get ready with. No more straining to see whether your eyebrows are perfect in the mirror -- you have a second set of hands. And need another shade of lipstick or eyeshadow? Your gal probably has you covered.
5. You’ll Never Run Out of Hygiene Products Again
...and you have someone who isn't ashamed to run to the store to get them if you do!
6. You Have Twice the Bathroom Products – And Someone to Help You Use Them
Everyone has a selection of endless lotions, shampoos, conditioners and perfumes that they purchased but never use. By consolidating your bathroom and care products, you can both find something new to try out.
7. You Always Have Someone to Talk to About Your Day
Do you get back from work feeling tired and drained? Most of us do. Rather than having to jump on your phone to chat with your significant other, you can just talk to them in the comfort of your own living room.
8. You Both Suddenly Have Way More Cash
Young couples know that Double Income No Kids is an awesome way to live, and it's also one of the big perks of moving in with your girl. Once you move in with your girlfriend, you'll find that splitting the rent and other bills will leave you both with tons of extra money to play with.
9. You Can Create Your Own Space Together
"Nesting" is no joke; it's an exciting thing to do alone, but it's even more thrilling to do with a partner. You can take comfort in decorating your shared space with paintings, knick-knacks, furnishings and even a little paint, to make it seem uniquely representative of your relationship.
10. You Will Know Whether It's a Long-Term Relationship, or Just a Fling
Scary or not, moving in is the first step towards a long-term, committed relationship, and that's probably the most important of all benefits of living with your girlfriend. You can't know whether it's really going to work out with "the one" until you live together. Moving in is a trial by fire. If it works, great! If it doesn't? Time to hit up Match again -- but it's best to know early.
