Everyone knows it’s just a trial baby: a hairier one that cries less. You have to take it for walks, clean up after it and aggressively milk it for all the Instagram likes you can get while it’s still a puppy.
You can throw this one out: nobody can buy houses these days.

Before he left he said I was the best thing that ever came into his life and that he loved me. I tried calling a few days later to talk, he said he did not see us getting back together, but he just needed space to think about things. My friends all think he'll come back, that he was just spooked by moving in (I was his first serious relationship), but after the way he was the night he came to get his stuff, I'm not sure he will be back.To translate for the current economic climate: moving into a slightly nicer flat without any intrusive housemates around to walk in on your “romantic” cooking sessions. If you first met this boy or girl at 21 then no way. If you’re in your mid-twenties then it’s a scary possibility that two could become one sooner than you think. You’d have a shit time and have that first flicker of doubt (“this going out stuff was more fun when I was single”).

You ought have said “I love you” after four and a half months and had a talk about “the future” by a year. This assumes you haven’t got with each other already at a house party, as one person ashes on your bag and another screams because What Do You Mean? We no longer subscribe to Victorian values: Match is kind of right when it says it would be weird if you haven’t kissed by the end of the first date. It’s a little bit secondary school, and feels like more of a first-girlfriend-situation (you tentatively knocked hands and then held them for a bit on the bench outside Tesco). There will likely be a heart leap the first time you extend your hand, and then it will be normal.
