Moving in with someone is a huge step for most couples. Even if they've been dating for quite a while, living with someone new is always an eye-opening experience. It's a time to discover the other person's habits, whether they be really great or just plain terrible. To make matters more complicated, there's also the issue of space. If one person is moving into their SO's place, then there's furniture already set up and there's a place for everything. Now they've got to learn how to make everything not just fit into the space but how to also pick and choose what to get rid of, which is rarely a simple matter.
Though there are plenty of ups and downs when it comes to two people moving in with each other, one of the main changes is how they act toward one another. Suddenly a girl might notice he's a little more paranoid about untidiness that she previously believed or that he's a complete slob who only used to clean up before she came over.
Before a woman considers moving in with her man, she should at least consider his sign to determine what sort of behaviors to expect. Here's a great list on the two habits he'll have when she moves in, according to his star sign.
28 Water Signs Struggle To Cope
Water signs aren't usually known for being stubborn, but when it comes to the way they decorate their homes and live their lives, there are just some things they don't feel comfortable changing.
The Water sign boys struggle - hard - when their girlfriends move it. There's a lot of change and they can feel it's too much. The thing is, no matter how uncomfortable they might feel at first, if she's a quality girlfriend she'll recognize his struggles and will help him during the transition.
27 Scorpios Fight To Keep Furniture The Way They Prefer
Scorpios love their furniture right where it is. They made sure every piece is not only an essential item but also that it doesn't clash with the rest of their decor. Scorpio men like to have a certain feel to each room, so when his girlfriend moves in, he often fights the need to keep only his furniture around.
So what if her couch is nicer? His is perfect for him! His bad habit will be nitpicking her things and trying to push them out. Don't worry, ladies. This behavior won't last forever.
26 Scorpios Find Creative Fixes
Once he's had a chance to drop that bad habit of trying to force all his girlfriend's furniture out of the home, he'll start a new, better habit. Scorpio guys like to find creative ways to incorporate their decorating style with hers.

It might take a little time and he might start to sound a little too picky, but once everything is done she'll appreciate the results.
25 Cancers Want Their Own Areas
Cancer men can be a little moody sometimes, and they know it. A Cancer will purposely set aside some time to simply be alone in the home, even after his girl has moved in. It's not that he's avoiding her because he dislikes her company, it's just that he's the kind of guy who needs a little space every now and then.
Once she lives with him, he'll make it a habit to find a place where he can be alone, whether it be the restroom, the bedroom, an office or even the back patio.
24 Cancer Guys Get More Cuddly
The interesting thing about Cancer guys is when they're not wanting to be on their own, they're opening themselves up to being more physical with their girls.

Now that he'll be sharing his space with his girlfriend, they'll both have to make a decision: double up on furniture or simply purchase new items.

If possible, he'll do his best to continue this trend with other items around the home until everything has been upgraded.
22 Pisces Will Learn To Cook
Pisces guys want their women to feel extra special, so instead of eating fast food and ramen all the time, he'll put in a little effort. He wants her to feel like she isn't the only one who has to come home at the end of the day to cook dinner.

Fire signs are known for their passionate natures, meaning they're quick to lose their temper and they can be quite emotional. Though their fiery nature is often what attracts their partners in the first place, Fire signs often cool down a bit once their lovers move in.

Leo men never really give any serious thought to how they decorate their home until someone else moves in. Suddenly, he's not as open to change. When his lady first moves in, he'll be fine with her bringing all of her things, but after a few days he'll start to realize he really just wants her to use his things.
