STRAIGHT TALK FROM YOUR GBF

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - SEX & LOVE - @ZiyaadBassier

Q: I HAVE BEEN IN A LONG-DIS­TANCE RE­LA­TION­SHIP FOR THREE YEARS AND MY BOYFRIEND IS COM­ING HOME SOON. WE’VE DE­CIDED TO MOVE IN TO­GETHER, BUT I AM SCARED WE MAY DIS­COVER WE WERE BET­TER SUITED APART. HOW DO I MAKE THINGS WORK?

A: Keep­ing the love alive is no easy task and mov­ing in with an­other per­son can be a scary tran­si­tion. Ex­plore the pos­si­bil­ity that this big move could be a new way of fall­ing in love all over again. Take him to your favourite new restau­rant or rent all the movies you two missed while apart and bond over laughs and pop­corn. Start with small, ev­ery­day ac­tiv­i­ties like gro­cery shop­ping or cook­ing to­gether to grasp a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of your rou­tines, and you may de­velop a rhythm that works well for you both. How­ever, if the fairy tale fails de­spite your ef­forts, at least you can be as­sured that when it comes to re­la­tion­ships, you’re will­ing to see it through – whether it’s across con­ti­nents, or un­der the same roof.
