Is it an option to get a hotel for a night? Housemates being so strictly adherent, if young, is pretty unusual right now! Thankfully, bf and I (though only 4 months in) both live alone, so things have been able to progress, but would be fierce tough otherwise.
I wouldnt say we're dating
, but I do think in normal times we would be by now. We're both fairly busy with college but have still found the time to meet up, snapping every few days, etc. I get the impression that sex is a big deal to him and he wouldnt be as adventurous or overt as most guys. I think if I suggest a hotel he'd just baulk, and if I try start something in the car or at a park I'd come off in a bad light because he's rather sexually conservative/inexperienced (at least to me, or at least very shy). I reckon it'll be a waiting game until I can bring him over in a more wholesome way. Maybe over Christmas if my house mates head home.
Yeah, my apartment situation is a bit odd. We're all young and healthy but relative strangers to each other, if we were a bit closer I think it would be easier to bend the rules. To be fair at least they're consistent, even a girl's boyfriend isn't allowed over. My friends in other houses have had the double standard of "no people over except boyfriends/girlfriends", which is rather unfair on those who are single.
Ah it's nice youve got someone, especially at this time of year. Winter is a graet time to be in a relationship, its so cold that cuddles are mandatory, and theres no overheating
I dont miss the awkward Christmas present guessing game though
