Fear is fine.

How you react to it is all that matters.

Scared of what, exactly?

yes

Did she leave her curling iron on or something?  You're scared the house will burn down?

Urinate frequently on all the furniture, rugs, draperies, bed linens, and bathroom towels to mark your territory.

Your fear stems from being in unfamiliar surroundings.

Yes it is, I moved in with mine for nine years before we got married. Still miserable after 28 years of marriage.

Nope but always remember to communicate even when you don't want to.  That's super important.  Even when you think it's stupid.

Can you jump out the window and survive the fall?

you should practice that.

Ahhh I remember moving in with the dude.  For the first month or so I wore makeup and got dressed every day.  Even though it was BFE North Carolina and I had no car and never went outside because of the heat and the bugs and there was nowhere to go.  Now he's lucky if I shower
 
2018-08-10 03:09:44 PM  
Be secure in your masculinity and sit to pee. It's an easy gesture, cleaner and will prevent problems in the long run.

how YOU doin?
 
2018-08-10 03:15:09 PM  
I am a firm believer in separate bathrooms
I got so damn tired of cleaning up all of the hair in the damn tub/shower in the first place we lived that when we were looking for a new place, I insisted on two bathrooms.  I had no problem giving her the large one with the tub and I took the one downstairs with the shower only.

Ya'll are making some serious leaps here.  Nothing says subby is a man.  Women are allowed to have girlfriends now, and even move in with them.

My advice stands.
 
2018-08-10 03:31:32 PM  
If it took you as long as that to feel the fear, then yeah you should be very scared.
 
2018-08-10 03:45:13 PM  
Call your mom and tell her she can have her apron strings back.
 
2018-08-10 03:53:17 PM  
Prepare to loose all the space you had on the sink, in the closet and anywhere else imaginable. And avoid asking is it necessary to own (blank) item.

1)  Be prepared to see them at their worst.
2)  Be prepared to be seen at your worst.
3)  Communicate always.
4)  Talk things out in advance on sharing responsibilities and bills.
5)  Talk about money.

If I had known that the one time she offered to help with the yard work would be the only time she offered, I would have said yes. Don't make the same mistake.

The unasked question is, "Why are you scared?" Are you afraid of the loss of independence? Having to share space with someone else? Embarrassment about personal habits and bodily functions?

Neither my wife nor I lived with people we had dated. We didn't even live together before we got married so the first few weeks required some adjustment. I knew better than to leave the lid up and did my damnedest to pick up after myself. I had to get used to her stealing the blankets and that she was OK peeing with the door open.

What you are feeling probably isn't so much being "scared" but more that things are different and outside of your previous experiences. Give it time and you can get used to just about anything.

Except the peeing with the door open. I still don't like it after over 30 years together. Gross.
 
2018-08-10 04:25:57 PM  
Without pictures of said girlfriend there is no way for us to answer the question.
 
2018-08-10 04:26:00 PM  
REVEL in the fear that is the new experience!

Because it will eventually turn into the mind-numbing, soul crushing, hope smashing living hell that inevitably awaits you and your partner. You will grow to loathe each other and pray not only for their death, but for your own as well.

OTOH, I'm sure it will all work out.
Sleep tight and sweet dreams.

Rule #1 in long-term relationships:

If no one is bleeding, losing a limb, burning down the house, lying, or dying then it is just not that big of a f*cking deal. Patience, compromise, and problem-solving will cure what ailes.

Everything will be fine if you never marry.

When you marry you will still have two more good years to enjoy.
 
2018-08-10 04:32:11 PM  
Whenever possible, be friends. It gets you through lots of stuff.

You have to work for what you want. Maybe not every day, but every week at least. Think about what you say before you say it if at all possible. Review your fights, and try to do better next time.

If things work out to be forever, these could be the best days of your life, until the next best days of your life.

My wife is the first partner I lived with. She had been married a few times, so I followed her lead, listened to her complain about her exes, and tried not to repeat their mistakes.

First you need a puppy, that will be a great unifying act as a couple and will take up a bunch of time and energy so you won't be able to feel scared about anything other than where did that smell come from or how am I going to replace one shoe?

Once the charm of the puppy wears off and you start having these thoughts and feeling again it's time for step 2

A baby, preferably with her but if you need to spend a long weekend  in Africa or South America "saving" one that works too.

The baby will continue the  deflection of any problems in your relationship for a guaranteed few years and if you get lucky 19 years.

At that point your relationship has lasted 20+ years and you can put it out to pasture, grow a pony tail, buy a convertible and write that novel/build an app/buy a bar or whatever you have been putting off all these years.

Sorry, but when I click on the headline it only brings me to the responses. Is that because I'm not a TF'er?

In any case, it most likely isn't "downhill". Ups and downs, twists and turns. It's a roller coaster ride. Hang on to each other, especially when times get tough. I once told my wife that we were like a couple of old drunks, leaning against each other as we stumbled down the road. Together, we can keep upright and keep moving. Separately, we'd just fall over. We'll be married 29 years this November and, while it wasn't always bliss and perfection, I can't imagine my life without her.

If the bathroom door is closed, the bathroom doesn't exist! Doesn't matter what is going on in that room, you don't acknowledge it, you don't ask about it, and for the love of fark do not attempt to open it.

((hug)) We just celebrated 31 years last month and I am entire comfy with you missing my comment.
Imma file it under "what'd ya say?" and like you, old married guy, all the better for it .

I met my partner when I was in my teens - the entire landscape of my life includes him.

I'm reminded of a line from the show "True Blood". Gay or straight, all men fear the pussy.

Women are not generally afraid of each other. Angry, maybe, but not afraid.
