How does it feel to live in the common flat?

Life in common is intro in marriage. Once when you decide to live with your partner, you will share bills, bed and meals. This includes also mutual ownership on remote control, and everyone who visits you will also visit your partner. On my personal opinion, couples should live together before they get married. It doesn't have to last too long, but this is test position for you both, how you will deal with this form of relation. 

While you are dating, you see only best sides of your partner. He is in nice clothes, you will not see his dirty socks, his breath will be fresh and you will go on cool places. After romantic night, you will go in your flat, he will stay in his flat. His mother will wash his laundry and make him lunch, you will not pay part of his bills and he will watch his football match at peace, That is difference between boyfriend and husband. Wife will collect empty bottles of beer , girlfriend will just call on phone for sexy talk. Wife will clean dirty floor , girlfriend will use mirror in bathroom to fix her lipstick. Where is no serious commitments, there is no obligations. It has advantages and negative sides.

If you think about your plans, you will realize that you can't date with him forever. Dating is cool while you are young, but if you are 40 and you date with man in forties, that is meeting of two tired people who need comfortable place to settle down. It is childish to wait him on the rain until his bus come, or to apologize to her because your dad did not give your car. So, one day you decided to move in his flat, but he is not ready. He would rather stay your boyfriend, because if you share flat with him, next step is marriage. 

Accord his reaction, you will know does he gets you as serious partner for relation. When man owns flat, this is his kingdom. If he lives alone, it gives him opportunities to invite more women for sex, to party with his drinking buddies and to make mess as he wish. Yes, he likes to sleep surrounded by bottles of wine, with his dirty socks and noisy television. He likes to listen his music as he wish and to forget where he put plates. He doesn't mind to wash dishes three days after and to wear same shirt more times. 

You will ask, how to move in his flat, if he is not ready ?

You can't act like thief and enter by force, because man's rage is not something what you wish to see. 

Well, there are some tricks how to persuade him that you are ideal roommate and perfect match for him.

Find your own job. If you are employed woman, he will see that you are able to pay bills.

Don't act as boss. He saw this already, with his mother. Show him that you are ready for compromises. 

If you spent night there, leave something as reminder. 
Your toothbrush, well you forgot it, isn't it? Your lipstick. Your Bra. If he return this to you immediately , with alert, he is not ready. If he doesn't say anything, you have chance to move in. 

Show him that you have already place for life. 
You are not homeless. He must see your real intentions, that you will not use him as toy to pay your bills. Even if you live with parents, show him that you don't mind , but that you would rather live with him because you love him.

Don't redecorate flat soon when you move in. Men hate if you try to change their place by your wishes, and you did not ask him. If he likes to live in mess, show him gentle that is not practical way. Find socks which he lost a long time ago so he will be grateful.

Now i have on my mind old songs by Pet Shop Boys, "Rent. " They sing "i love you, you pay my rent. " Well, your partner must be aware that you are not homeless intruder who would otherwise live in the street. You are not burden, you are gift. 

After 5 years of dating Alice move in with Peter, in his flat. His mother was against this, and when Alice left towel, she said that she must pick up her rags. Soon, Alice found job. After she paid first bills, Peter's mother became quiet. Soon Alice bought new furniture, and Peter invited his friends to visit them. All what friends said to Peter was : "Wow, you are lucky man. Keep her not to run away from you. "

Women are not weak as they look

Where is a fight, there is love. Since childhood opposite genders tease each other, make conflicts and argue, just to compare their mental strength. Men are strong gender by nature, but many of them underestimate woman’s will and character. Some judgments define a woman as fragile, sensitive creature, and the man who is educated in the traditional family will often underestimate a woman. He will see the weak creature in the corner with a face full of tears. Well, a woman can defend herself in thousand ways. She will seduce you to obey you. She will pretend weakness just to take revenge on you if you humiliate her. Be ready for her trick as on poker table. Especially men who are used to silent, obedient woman can’t count on such resistance. Remember, the woman is the one who is working and clean house after work, carry for kids and for your laundry and your meal. Women are multi-tasking, so how can they be weak? When you fall in love with a woman who can care for herself, she doesn’t …

Are you the hunter or the kill?

Criticism is a sensitive field. It is easy to give critics, to mock someone, but it is not easy to receive this in return and to make a joke by yourself. Do you laugh at yourself, in public? Do you allow friends to tease you, even this means that they will overrate your faults and make your values smaller? There is a thin line between social clown and person who loves to make jokes about yourself. If you are a hunter, if you respect yourself, you will allow the certain dose of criticism but you will not be a doormat. If you ask me to whom you must be grateful, maybe my answer will surprise you. Yes, i am grateful to my parents because they give me motivation, strong will, and attitude. I am grateful to my sister because she stood on my side when i felt miserable. I am grateful to my husband for accepting me as i am, even when i was the worst nightmare. Mostly, i am grateful to my rivals, to develop my strength. As i passed my initiation, faced with many troubles and get out from bigg…

Are you grateful for the things you have ?

Are you grateful for the things you have in your life? I don’t think about furniture or new plates, i think about your private and professional life. Sometimes, we forget to save gratitude in our heart because our mind is too busy by dreaming about something we still did not realize. Gradation looks like this: I don’t have boyfriend. I have boyfriend but we are not married. We are married but we don’t have kids. We have only one child. Our kid is not obedient, we have problematic teenager.
In professional plan, we can use same pattern: I am studying and i don’t have job. I have job but my salary is small. I have good salary but i have no free time. I have job but my boss is dictator. It is about human nature, where all are rivals, competitors and opponents. Why your neighbor owe expensive car, and you are going at work with bus? Why your kids can’t have designers clothes? Why your friend has bigger flat then you? We are dreaming because of our ambitions. It is not bad, i am also ambiti…
