Starting a new relationship is one of the most exciting things ever. Everything is new, you're always giddy with anticipation over the next time you'll see your new boo, and you really end up setting the stage for how your relationship will be for as long as you're together — which is hopefully forever!
After a little while, that giddiness and excitement may remain, but you also develop a deeper bond and aren't afraid to let your guard down and just be yourself around your SO. For a lot of couples, that's around the time they start pondering one of the big questions: Should we move in together?
If you do decide to take the plunge, you're in for a whole new world of excitement. Most of the time, it's like having a sleepover with your best friend every single night of the year!
You'll also discover things that you might not have known about your SO before.Like the fact that they apparently need 1 million bobby pins in their life for some reason, or that they snore super loudly. It's all part of the process of living together. The following tweets show some of the funnier things that happen when you move in together. Let's get to them!
It's always nice to have an extra pair of eyes.

I moved in with my girlfriend after 1 year. People say we're rushing in but we're both so in love with saving $900/mo.— Matthew Broussard (@Matthew Broussard)1499196164.0
Living together means cuddling every night!Just kidding. It means cuddling every night for about five minutes until they mutter that you're a "little furnace" and jokes about how their arm is falling asleep. It's always nice to have an extra pair of eyes.
Happy National Girlfriend Day!

#Goals.Listen, guys. We're not that complicated. Most girls just want to hear those three magic words: "I have food."
Another great perk:

Never be afraid to laugh at yourselves.After you move in together, the number of inside jokes you share rises exponentially because you can joke about literally anything that happens, night or day.
Sharing food? Not anymore.
[Date] "I'm going to use the restroom *leans over table* and I counted my onion rings, there's six."— Tommytoughstuff (@Tommytoughstuff)1428932197.0
True love.Granted, this could also happen before you live together. Either way, it can keep the romance alive or could make you question everything. One of the two.
