Some couples consider moving in together. This is a big decision. If you and your partner are thinking about this, take time to talk about it and make sure you know what it’s really about. It may also help to talk to friends and family . Living together can change the dynamic of a relationship as you spend more time together and you will probably have shared financial responsibilities.
- Why do you want to live together?
- Is this the right time?
- How are you going to split the bills?
- How are you going to share household chores?
- How are you going to make time for your own friends and interests?
- What will you do if it doesn't work out?
Sometimes no matter how much you want a relationship to work, it doesn’t. It can be hard when you realise a relationship is going to end – no matter who does the breaking up.
People feel many emotions when they go through a break up: sadness, disbelief, relief, anger, guilt. It’s important to talk about what you are feeling with someone you trust.
Some other things you may find helpful:
Take care of yourself – eating nutritious food, getting enough sleep and exercising regularly helps your body stay healthy. You may also like to treat yourself to something special. Try to think positively about your achievements, your friendships and other positive parts of your life.
Spend time with people who care about you – whether it is family or friends, spending time with others can give you a chance to talk about what you are going through, or time to just hang out and enjoy other people’s company.
Try something new – take the opportunity to make a fresh start and do something you have always wanted to – a new hobby, play a sport, learn a new skill.
