3. Be ready to compromise on and make the move.
Renting a new place is not a bad idea at all. However, if you do not make enough or simply want to save, decide who is going to make the move. How convenient will it be for you to commute to work if it is you who is moving in? Also, think well how much space it will take you to keep your items in your new place and whether the area is spacious enough for both of you.
