Just wanted to give an update. I have found a great guy, who I can truly claim to be my other half. We have been friends since October and officially together for almost 2 months. Things are going great between the two of us and can see a future together. I am planning on moving in with him by the end of the year, we already spend every night together taking turns going to each other's apartments. My fall semester I have class until 10pm and my apartment is closer and do not want to drive an hour at 10 pm at night home. He has the same goals and dreams as I do with a similar work ethic.
With moving in together my financial goals will be able to be completed faster, as my half of rent is $300, and I just got a raise at work and expecting another later this year. We do want to get married down the road and plan on saving up so it is paid all in cash (October 2018 is our goal). I plan on doing a ton of DIY so we can spend money on the big things, like a honeymoon in Aruba (neither of us had a honeymoon for our first weddings), and we want a big party!
