So, when I starting telling people that Jared is officially moving in with me, I got a lot of positive and negative feedback. Most people are happy for me, as I have been wanting this for a while now. Then are those party poopers who like to remind me of all the negatives.

*If we break up, it'll be a giant nasty mess
*We both have a LOT of stuff for my tiny condo
*He wants a dog, I have 2 cats
*We're not married, so we have to be quiet about this around all grandparents
*People are now going to look at me as if I am some sort of Jezebel
*My friends might start to think I'm not there for them anymore

*We are going to both be able to SAVE money now
*We will, obviously, be able to find out if we can live with each other long term.
*We are serious. Damn it
*I'm scared, but I'm brave, and I'm strong, and I know this is right

I guess the moral of the story is, there's no way that everyone I know will be okay with this. Jared is moving in with me.

Good luck and don't worry about others. Catherine is concerned about Beefcake since she has a mean older brother.

Hey. You got two men moving in with you; Beefcake and Jared. Hope they get along;)
Count me as one who believes it is none of my business to judge you one way or another on morality issues.

Fuck what other people say... you should do it if it makes you happy.

Well, I'm happy for you. I won't be a friend you're not there for, because it's hard to ignore your next door neighbor. And if you break up...well, then, you make him move out. No big deal. I don't see negatives here. I think it's dumb that you've both been paying for places to live all this time. And tell Catherine not to worry. I was worried too...but Meatwad is very loving with that cute little kitten. They're awfully cute together. And if you need estrogen...just come see me and all my girl pets. :) Screw what everyone else thinks. Really. You get one life, and you've got to make sure you're happy. Just don't move out of state and I'll support all your decisions.
