Ever since I got the apartment with Mr. Agador Spartacus, I've enjoyed our relationship more.

I suppose I wasn't expecting that, because any and all moving in advice talked about how it can be like a major blow to the relationship, or it strains it, or there's more bickering over chores and things. I was expecting a growing pains phase.

So far, none of those things have happened yet. I've actually been enjoying our relationship more as time goes on. I'm more affectionate than I used to be, I enjoy cuddling with him more, and I've been overall much happier with him. Is it because the apartment is a new thing, and it's giving me all the novelty dopamine happy feelings?

Is it also weird or bad that I wasn't expecting that getting an apartment with him would improve things?
