Moving in with your significant other triggers a series of conversations and interactions you just don’t have until you cohabitate. It cannot be stopped. You can’t just NOT discuss who will take out the trash or mail in the rent checks or you’ll wind up living in trash….or on the street because nobody mailed in the rent check. But before you live together, every conversation gets to be fun, flirty, and carefree. If a subject rubs you the wrong way, you can just change it. But you don’t get to do that when the subject is the high water bill–it needs to be addressed one way or another. Naturally, it’s easy to feel like your dynamic changes under these circumstances. Here is how to keep living together from making you feel like roommates.

Find the humor in logistical talk

Find a way to inject humor into logistical talk. You have to find the funny in discussing which toilet paper brand to switch to since the toilets have been clogging. If you can laugh when you discuss logistics, these conversations won’t suck the life out of the room.
