If you’ve lived alone for years, cohabitation can be a challenge. Add in cohabitation with the individual whom you are in a romantic relationship with and the potential for a stressful situation is great.
It’s important that you and your partner each have a spot within your new home that is your own personal space. For example, this can be a place where you can sit down with a cup of coffee and a book and read for an hour knowing that you will not be interrupted.
It could be a study room or an office or somewhere as simple as a lounge chair in the backyard. The key is that this place is where “me time” occurs.
