What Does It Mean When Your Boyfriend Wants You To Move In with Him?

by Michelle Devani

Is your boyfriend asking you to move in with him?

Are you wondering why he would offer this invitation and what this would mean for your relationship?

Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to explore in the guide below. Spoiler alert: this is only a positive thing! Most likely, you’ve made a great impression on him so far. 

However, if you’re looking to increase the lust in your relationship moving forward - rather than falling into a rut and taking each other for granted - I’d urge you to read the next few sentences carefully. 

The part of the male brain most responsible for romantic love is called the ‘Hero’s Instinct’.

When a woman can activate this primal trigger, it releases all sorts of glorious hormones within him. 

By learning to do this consistently, you can make your man fall in love with you again and again. 

I have learned how to do this, and it has made my relationships with men stronger than ever. The ‘honeymoon period’ never ends once you learn how to do this. (Check my personal blog post to discover how this works). 

This is the secret to ever-lasting love with a long-term partner. It would appear that every woman who learned this skill has reported similarly positive results. 

So, if you’re worried about your relationships with men going stale, I’d urge you to read my post on how I discovered the power of the ‘Hero’s Instinct’

With that said, let’s now explore what would inspire a man to invite you to live with him.
