I’m in my mid twenties and have been with my partner for almost 4 years. I moved to another city last year for a new job and she followed suit shortly after. We have our own apartments but she has been asking to move in together. Though we have a very healthy relationship, for some reason I can’t seem to give her an answer on whether I’m ready or not.. is it too early in our relationship and at our age to go to couples therapy and try to find the root of this unease?
