I have lived with my boyfriend for about six months now.
However, before I moved in together I was living on my own for about two years.
I thought moving in with my boyfriend would be a great way to save some money and we were starting to get more serious too. I really love living with my boyfriend, but there is one thing that I really miss about living on my own. I used to set the thermostat on my HVAC system to whatever I wanted because I was paying for the electric bills. Now it’s a different story. My boyfriend is very frugal with his money so I can’t just set the thermostat to whatever temperature I want. He makes me keep the thermostat set at seventy-five degrees which is brutal in the middle of the summer. I wish that my boyfriend would let me change the temperature of the thermostat because keeping it set to seventy-five degrees all year round is awful. He even makes me keep the thermostat at this temperature in the middle of the summer. If I was still living on my own I would have the air conditioner blasting at sixty degrees and sit under the vents for hours just to cool off. I guess that it’s better to save money in the long run, but I really miss my cooler HVAC habits. I don’t think that I will ever get to live that way again, but it was really nice while it lasted for those few years.
