TEN TIPS TO MAKE MOVING IN WITH A BOYFRIEND AS SEAMLESS AS POSSIBLE
It’s a topic I hear all the time discussed amongst my female friends: “How do you do it?” “How do you live with a man?”.
Well. I’ve lived amongst men all my life. I watched my mother live with one. I saw my grandmother live with one. One of my matrons at boarding school was one. And now I currently live with three men all at once - one of them even lives in the kitchen. It's fair to say, I am an expert.
It can be nervewracking making that step - moving from having your own space to letting someone else move in too and have one drawer and one-third of the bed.
Thus, after several years experimenting sharing rooms with men I find attractive, here is my step-by-step guide on how to make living with a man-who-you-have-sex-with as seamless and fun as possible.
FIRST TIP - MAKE HIM COMFORTABLE WITH THE IDEA OF LIVING WITH YOU
When making the transition from his space to your space it is important that you make the environment right for both of you, in order to prevent you either fighting to the death, or one of you eating the other.
Before you officially move in together, invite him into the room for short periods at a time. I recommend 30 minutes to start with.
Allow him to sniff around and explore so he feels comfortable, safe and familiar with your scent. Moving can be stressful for a male and he will naturally assume he is in enemy territory.
Make sure it is nice and warm, and there is drinking water available. Ease him into the change by putting in some of his bedding in the corner, so he has the familiar scent of LYNX Africa to return to.
Add some of his objects into the room, such as a football or a book if he needs to calm down after he has spotted your Johnny Depp mural.
