    I must smile at your article…. I didn’t ask my Irish American husband to move in; however, I did ask him to marry me. Why waste time if you know he is the one?

    Nice post.
    As a traditional Chinese man, I think it’s very weird for a person to come to other’s apartment even he/she gets the key.

    I think the only reason is that he really was in a deep love with you and wanted to be with you all the time.

    I think this situation usually happens to yong people, especially they don’t have much love experience, no matter what culture they live in.

    There alone, you can tell (thinking of our discussion on the “dating history”-post) that you can’t tell… year before last, the German debate competition had “Does it hurt society’s morals for people to co-habit?” as one of the topics; you are not supposed to live together before marriage, after all. Then again, you are also not supposed to do more than hold hands and maybe kiss before marriage, either 😉

    My Chinese boyfriend moved in the first day we were together. I knew he liked me and I liked him but he kept postponing saying he liked me so I just asked him to come home with my that night (not that I’m that kind of girl who wants a one night stand, I just was to shy to say to him that I liked him :p). And since that day we have lived together. We’re now four months together and about to get married (some people think it’s to quick, but we have our reasons), so he can come back to my country with me, but there is so much paper work to do. I never thought getting married to a Chinese man and getting him back to Belgium involves so much paperwork.
    And we don’t even intend to stay in Belgium, we’re moving back to China after I graduate in one year.
    Seriously, marrying a foreigner shouldn’t involve so much paperwork.

    haha…my Chinese boyfriend is studying here in America, we met at my university in September. he then chased me for about 2 months,but it didn’t really get anywhere. then the first night i visited his apartment, he told me he loved me 🙂 he also begged me to move in with him, offering free rent; he really knows how to dote on a girl.
    i thought it was rather quick aside from the fact that i liked him too, but we’ve been officially together for 4 months and counting, i don’t regret a single thing =)))
