Free Traveling

 

The video is so you can formulate your own opinion but…

I don’t completely like the idea of free travel

 

  • I’m a type A personality. I’m a control freak.

I can’t be comfortable not knowing what I will eat, where I will sleep, how will I get somewhere.

….I guess you need that carefree adventurous attitude.

  • I can’t depend on the good will of others.

I’ve learned in life to do things for myself. I don’t really trust people.

But I’m probably just afraid.

 

Tip 2| Habits and Pet Peeves

They say you only truly know someone when you live with them…

I agree.

Battling what side to sleep on….

Keeping a trash can in the bathroom….

Room in the closet….

We all go through it at some point

  • Keep an open mind
  • Compromise because you love each other and want each other to feel comfortable
  • Communicate anything that bothers you and know when to give in a little

 

 

Tip 1| Week of Moving in

1| Financial Stability

…is important when moving in.

And here is why:

  • Dual-income vs. Sole income. If you are currently unemployed or are studying towards your career you might be expecting for their to be one bread winner. Communication is key. There are a lot of dual-income households because in this day-in-age, one income is just not enough to live comfortably.

 

  • Separating bills before moving in. Agreeing on who is responsible for what bill eliminates awkward conversations and last minute scramming. Key word: Agreeing.

 

  • Who earns more? 50/50 is not always the best route to go. Typically, if someone is earning considerably more than another then they should try to pitch in a little more. Why? Because that way you both can have spending money and be able to save.

 

  • Joint accounts vs. Individual accounts. This is all a matter of opinion and which you prefer. Honestly, I would probably do both; keep an individual account but open a joint one. Humans go through many relationships throughout their lives so having your own account can help you have a net when worst case scenario happens.
