My boyfriend and I have been together for almost a year and after months of him asking me to get a place with him I decided that on our one year mark we can get a place together. Well, my stuff is slowing being packed and we've been shopping for the house for about a month and things are going great.
However, I am scared. I am totally frightened that we're going to grow to resent each other. What if he can't stand my neurotic house cleaning? What if I can't stand his videogame playing?
So my ultimate questions is: What should I do to keep our relationship alive and exciting when living with my boyfriend? What should I do to have our differences make us bond stronger as opposed to making us drive each other crazy?

that living together is a great way to really get to know someone. I personally would never live with a guy, but that doesn't mean i don't think its a fantastic idea. You get to test drive a "married" life with him and see how he really is .... :-) Its hard to know someone from the outside, but when you live with the person and all the responsibilities and 'togetherness' that comes with living together, thats when you really know the person...

Thank you so much Becky for your advice! I have already started taking it. I am making more friend dates now. I hadn't realized how many people I have left out of my new life. It's shocking really.
