Ha!

I was going through my posts from the past year, and decided to read my comments from April, the month I decided to move in with H.

Just wanted to officially point out to everyone that despite moving in with H two months after meeting him, I have proved that I'm not insane and I did not make a bad financial decision (I'm currently paying $877.50/mo less than I was living with my mother). I'm happy and feel extremely lucky.

Also, to the commenter who said that being financially insecure is what I get for not passing the bar and getting the "high paying lawyer job"? You clearly don't know a damn thing about the legal industry. I'm currently getting paid more than some of my former classmates. I could easily get a place on my own, and I could easily have gotten a place on my own last year. The only reason I decided to move into a place with my mother (where I PAID $6000 UP FRONT, while she paid nothing) was for the companionship.

I think I'm a fairly good judge of character; I felt a connection with H, and I trusted him. But yes, I was still taking a risk. I wouldn't recommend that other people do what I did. Regardless, the people who were really judgmental and basically telling me I was an idiot? I'm giving you the middle finger. And to the people that had some sensitivity and gave me constructive criticism? I appreciate it, despite not following your advice.

T and I moved in together at 18 after a year together (most of that long distance). It worked out okay - even if I wasn't sure at first!

@eemusings: Sometimes you just get lucky! :)

I moved in with my BF after being together for one year, and it's worked great for us. We've been together for almost 6 years. I don't recommend it for everyone, but there are cases where it works.

I can't believe that somebody would be so mean to comment that on your blog. It's great that you and T are doing so well.

To be the diplomat, I think even the people that were too harsh just care about you. We're all glad you're good.

I'm glad to hear that you are happy and doing well.

I also moved in with my bf quickly after we met and got tons of criticism about it. Now one year later I can say exactly the same: I am happy I trusted my feelings :-)
