Is the younger generation shying away from moving in together even in committed relationships?
Awhile back, my son and his girlfriend split after living together for less than a year. I had a nice relationship with his girlfriend and after the emotional reaction, the practical side kicked in. I knew he was 27 and perfectly capable of taking care of himself and I didn't ask him any of the "Mom, give me a break!" questions. Being a communciation coach and knowing my son, it wasn't all that hard to resist the temptation.
Turns out stepping out of your culinary comfort zone can make your love life more fulfilling.
It's 9 p.m. on a Sunday. What does your boyfriend usually do on Sunday nights? Play video games? Catch up on work? Pick the lint out of his belly button? Mine is checking the oven right now to see how crispy his chicken pot pie is.
It's far too soon for these two to be shacking up again!
If the rumors and speculation are true, and the famous 'Twilight' couple has indeed reconciled their differences and gotten back together, that's great. But does that mean they should dive right in to moving back in together?
Help! My boyfriend and I don't have much in common, and I'm developing feelings for another guy.
I'm fickle, I always have been. I have a boyfriend who is very nice to me, fixes things in my house, treats me well and is very devoted. He is not as social as I am, though, and we don't have very much in common.
There are many things to consider before moving in together. Romance without finance is a nuisance!

Whether you agree with living together before marriage or not, it's becoming much more acceptable these days. However, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.

Dear Dr. Romance:
I have been dating this girl for 3 months now but we were talking and going on occasional dates for a good 5 months before we finally made it offical. Now that we are together things have changed. She ignores me when we are around friends and family. When I ask her if she wants to do something or just hang out she always finds an excuse and i end up finding out she went out with her friend at the last second.
Moving in together for the wrong reasons or without planning can jeopardize the whole relationship.
