  1. Being a celebrity, no matter how glamorous it looks, isn't exactly the world's easiest job, especially when you don't have any guiding figure in the film industry. Most of these superstars, who serve as an inspiration for most of us, weren't always this rich or famous. Most of them were not born with a silver spoon in their mouth and thus, they too had to resort to doing jobs, like the rest of us. While some had pretty normal jobs in their younger years, some of them had rather unusual and surprising jobs before they made it big. Check out our list of odd celebrity jobs to see the typical, the unexpected, and the downright unbelievable. Brad Pitt Brad was studying journalism when he realized his passion for acting. But since dropping out of college doesn't always turn out for the best, the actor chauffeured strippers in a limo for a while. And that's not all; he also was s mascot for a fast food chain called El Pollo Loco and wore a chicken costume while giving out flyers. "My job was to drive them to bachelor parties and things," he told in an interview. "I'd pick them up, and at the gig I'd collect the money, play the bad Prince tapes and catch the girls' clothes." © Reuters Jay Z Don't be inspired by this one. Jay Z was a drug dealer. He has never hidden his past and in fact, admits that it helped him become business savvy. He explained in an interview, “I know about budgets. I was a drug dealer. To be in a drug deal, you need to know what you can spend, what you need to re-up." Well, we are just glad that he left this aspect of his past, for good. © Wikimedia Commons Hugh Jackman This handsome hunk was previously a Physical Education teacher at a school in England. But that's pretty normal, right? His second job, however, was that of a professional clown. He revealed in an interview, “I was Coco the Clown and I had no magic tricks and I remember a six-year-old standing up at a party saying 'Mummy this clown is terrible, he doesn't know any tricks' - and he was right.' “ In case you find it too hard to believe, have a look at this proof that he tweeted. Damning proof I used to do clowning. pic.twitter.com/9dJao2bDOG — Hugh Jackman (@RealHughJackman) August 20, 2015 Johnny Depp He is an excellent actor but at his previous jobs, he was terrible. For a while, he was a telemarketer for pens. (Yes, that's apparently a thing.) But he was so ashamed of the “scam” that he was pulling people into, that he started pleading his customers to back out. After that, he moved on to become a mechanic but as fate had it, that didn't work out for this superstar either. He recalled in an interview, ''I changed all the tires on this guy's car, did the alignment, put the wheels back on, pulled it down, guy got in, and his left rear wheel shot off the vehicle. I was asked to leave, needless to say.'' © Reuters Channing Tatum Performing the role of a stripper in a movie is not that unusual, but Channing Tatum has had some practice in real life. When he was about 19 years old, the actor used to perform in a strip club because, as he puts it, he was "young and dumb and stupid and just wanted to make some money." He did it for whole eight months before it became too much to handle. In case you are interested in watching him perform, here's a video: Sylvester Stallone Sylvester Stallone had his share of bad days before his acting career took off. But one of the lowest points of his life was when he had to clean out lion cages at the Central Park Zoo for $1.12 an hour. He even made an appearance in an adult film called ‘The Party at Kitty and Stud's'. So the next time you feel bad about your job, think of him and take inspiration for not giving up. © Reuters Matthew McConaughey Matthew used to live in Australia an exchange student and therefore had to struggle pretty hard to make ends meet. He worked as a chicken coop cleaner, a place where most of us won't be able to stay for a minute. But since that didn't pay much, he also had to wash dishes for some extra cash. © Reuters George Clooney Before he found fame, George Clooney did a few low-paid jobs and got fired from all of them. He once worked at cutting tobacco, sold door-to-door insurance and even worked in a ladies' shoe shop. He revealed in an interview: "I had a lot of rotten jobs. I sold insurance door-to-door, but it didn't work out well. The first day I sold one (policy) and the guy died.” © Reuters Jon Bon Jovi We have never heard of this one before but Bon Jovi was a Christmas decoration maker. Before becoming the world famous rockstar that he is, he used to assemble Christmas decorations and even used to mopp up the floor as a janitor. He obviously wasn't happy with these jobs and started relentlessly handing out demos until one DJ agreed to start playing the track Runaway. © Reuters Patrick Dempsey McDreamy, as he is lovingly called by his female fans, was always good with his hands, way before he did a stint as a doctor in ‘Grey's Anatomy'. The actor was once a professional juggler. In fact, his rare yet excellent juggling skills got him a part on the ABC show ‘Overnight Success'.
  2. PESHAWAR: Former president and Pakistan Peoples Party Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said on Monday that he had told former prime minister Nawaz Sharif that he would do politics not in the first four years of the government but in the final year before General Elections 2018. The former president addressed a crowd in Peshawar, also speaking about the recent by-polls in Lahore?s NA-120, where Kulsoom Nawaz emerged victorious. ?I don?t see the establishment backing me up,? said Zardari, adding that he sees a ?Jiyala? at his back. ?If you listen to Maryam Nawaz?s statements following the victory, there is a lot to observe,? he remarked. Zardari said that if Nawaz intended to implement Charter of Democracy back in the day, then the PPP workers wouldn?t have languished in jails. ?I had warned them not to be royalty but they turned into kings and princes,? said the former president mocking the PML-N leadership. During Zardari?s speech, the workers got unruly and chanted slogans against the party leadership. The workers reportedly had a grievance that the PPP co-chairman did not meet them. The former president?s address came a day after the hotly-contested NA-120 by-elections, where PML-N candidate and former PM Nawaz?s wife secured the seat from her party?s stronghold.
  3. The whole world went in a major emotional meltdown after the lead vocalist of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington committed suicide at his home in California. We are still shaken and are in utter pain over Bennington's demise, with his absence being deeply felt by every music lover. © Reuters Remembering Bennington, his wife Talinda Bennington shared a heartwarming video of him laughing and spending quality time with his family just hours before his death. Before sharing the video, she tweeted “My next tweet is the most personal tweet I have ever done. I'm showing this so that you know that depression doesn't have a face or a mood.” We couldn't agree any more with Talinda. In the 40-second clip, Bennington was seen laughing with his family, after he tried a different kind of jelly beans, only to spit it out for its weird taste. She wrote, “This is what depression looked like to us just 36 hrs b4 his death. He loved us SO much & we loved him.” This is what depression looked like to us just 36 hrs b4 his death. He loved us SO much & we loved him. #fuckdepression #MakeChesterProud pic.twitter.com/VW44eOER4k — Talinda Bennington (@TalindaB) 16 September 2017 Depression is much bigger and worse than what you or I can ever imagine and even if we try to understand the emotional and mental turmoil, sadness, dejection and pain a person is going through, we'll only be able to touch the tip of that iceberg called Depression. Chester Bennington committed suicide on 20th July and ever since his death, Talinda is helping and supporting others suffering from depression. Her hashtags #f**kdepression and #MakeChesterProud speak volumes for her efforts. In fact, she has been actively encouraging people to stay strong in the battle of depression and urging them to express themselves and talk to family and friends to fight depression. Although he is not with us anymore, but his songs will definitely remain with us till eternity.
  4. The first round of the 2017 Emmy awards have been handed out and not many people woke up to see the results. While we completely understand it's criminal to wake at ungodly hours to catch a glimpse of some of your favourite TV show actors receiving awards, we also understand the cringe you feel having missed their speech and the initial ceremony. So here we are, bringing you the best of goss from the primetime award section and you can definitely thank us later! © Television Academy The Creative Arts Emmy were held on the 9th and 10th of September, prepping us for the big daddy of TV show awards, The Primetime Emmy Awards next week (Sunday, the 17th , to be precise). The minute difference between the two differently held award ceremonies is simple. The Creative Arts Emmy's focus more on technical achievements for the year and the best in lighting, cinematography, editing etc. receive recognition at these awards. The main Emmy's focus on every other achievement and both the award functions qualify the recipients as bonafide Emmy award winners. © Goldderby Usually the Creative Arts Emmy is a precursor for the bigger awards held a week later. So if a show bags a good amount of awards at the first function for their technical achievements, they have a good chance of bagging more awards at the main Emmys event. This year, 'Stranger Things' and 'Westworld' each won five Creative Arts Emmys, which due to the sheer fondness for the show by the voters may put them a notch above other nominees and they might bag more victories! They have already been nominated for the best drama category at the Primetime Emmy Awards. Other victories at the Creative Award Emmys include 'The Crown', which bagged two technical awards and also might make a big win at the main award function. Other small writing/acting categories were also awarded at the Creative Arts function. Dave Chappelle and Melissa McCarthy bagged the best guest actor/actress in a comedy respectively, for Saturday Night Live. Dave Chappelle is a first time Emmy Award winner. Alexis Bledel ('Gilmore Girls') won the guest actress award for her role as Ofglen in Hulu's Drama series The Handmaid's Tale. So we reckon you gear up this Sunday, to witness some love and adoration for your favourite prime time TV stars. Who're you rooting for?
  5. The headquarters of the European Central Bank (ECB) (R) is seen next to the famous skyline in Frankfurt, Germany, April 9, 2017. Photo: REUTERS/file FRANKFURT: Europe?s regulators are competing to hire risk specialists to prepare for an influx of banks escaping Brexit, nudging up salaries and stretching staff budgets. Wall Street giants Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley, which have big operations in London, intend to expand in the European Union after Britain?s departure. Germany?s financial regulator, Bafin, and the French and Irish central banks intend to hire dozens of new recruits in the coming year, according to officials. The European Central Bank, which has overall responsibility for supervising banks, is also seeking new staff. But filling such positions is difficult, partly because risk specialists are in hot demand and budgets of public institutions are limited. ?We are seeing a lot more competition in hiring people for risk, in both the public sector and the private sector,? said Nigel David, a head-hunter at Charles Levick in London. ?You are seeing salaries shoot up.? Ireland?s central bank said late last year it had set a target of boosting staff numbers this year by almost 10 percent, or 170 people, in part to cope with Brexit. By May, the numbers were broadly unchanged at about 1,600 employees. A central bank spokeswoman declined to say why it had not hired more staff. But Philip Lane, its governor, spoke of the challenge of hiring in a newspaper interview in July. ?Any regulator in a major financial centre, I?m sure the Bank of England or the New York Fed have similar challenges, there is always going to be the issue of how to compete with the other opportunities,? he said. The majority of its employees earn between 25,000 euros and 75,000 euros ($90,400). Starting salaries for risk managers at an investment bank are around $52,600. Ireland?s problem has been exacerbated by pay restrictions and extra taxes on civil servants, imposed by the government as it seeks to recover from a financial collapse. The central bank recently approved the creation of 26 new posts to deal with the ?increased workload post the Brexit referendum?. MATHS, PHYSICS DEGREES With the clock ticking to Britain?s EU departure by April 2019, banks are already beginning to migrate from London. The shift will give Europe?s regulators a greater say over global finance after Brexit even though they are still dealing with the regulatory fallout from the last financial crash. Regulators in Paris wants to hire 50 additional people, while Germany?s Bafin is examining new staff as part of budget negotiations for 2018 now taking place, people familiar with the matter said. But like Dublin, they may find that their hiring pot is not big enough. A survey of risk experts by recruiter Barclay Simpson found that salaries for European market risk specialists at an investment bank began at 40,000 pounds ($52,600) for graduates and climbed above 400,000 pounds for top managers. By comparison, Daniele Nouy, the ECB?s top regulator, earned just 278,000 euros ($335,300) last year. The typical candidate for a risk management job would have a degree in maths or physics to help spot the risk of, for example, a mortgage default, one headhunter said. They might also have experience of working in a retail bank. ?Risk is a very competitive market,? said Liam O?Mahoney, of head-hunter Eames Consulting in London. ?It?s going to be very difficult for a central bank to attract people.? The ECB, which has an annual budget for policing banks of more than 400 million euros, may be one of the few institutions able to keep pace. It is seeking to hire contractor risk specialists at daily rates of 1,000 euros - plus expenses, people familiar with the program said. A spokeswoman for the ECB declined to comment. For others, such as Germany?s Bafin, where salaries range between 35,000 euros and 80,000 euros, the hope is that the appeal of a secure job in a predictable civil service will appeal. ?It?s international,? said one employee. ?The work is interesting. And unlike the private sector, people here work 41 hours a week.?
  6. FIFA President Gianni Infantino and Russian President Vladimir Putin attend the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour kick-off ceremony at the Luzhniki Stadium which will host matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, in Moscow, Russia, September 9, 2017. REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin and FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Saturday launched the World Cup trophy on a tour across Russia ahead of the 2018 championship, with the head of world soccer?s governing body lauding Russia?s readiness for the event. ?To the people of Russia, I tell them: enjoy and celebrate the trophy tour and then the World Cup. And to the people of the world, I tell them: come to Russia, enjoy Russia and celebrate the World Cup,? Infantino said, standing next to Putin on a stage in Moscow?s Luzhniki stadium. Surrounded by hundreds of young soccer players, Infantino and Putin took turns to hold the FIFA World Cup in their hands before it started its 123-day, 26,000 km (16,250 mile) journey. ?We are starting now the tour...to prepare the whole world for next year?s event when in this stadium three billion people around the world will watch this trophy being handed over to the next world champion,? Infantino said. Moscow has eased visa regulations for foreign soccer fans and pumped billions of dollars into stadiums, hotels and other infrastructure as the Kremlin is keen to improve Russia?s image in its worst crisis with the West since the Cold War. Russia has come under several rounds of Western sanctions over the annexation of Crimea and Moscow?s role in Ukraine?s conflict with pro-Russian separatists. ?Everything is proceeding according to plan, everything is financed properly,? Putin told Infantino at a separate meeting later in remarks shown by state television. The Luzhniki stadium, which has undergone a five-year reconstruction, will host the opening and final games of the World Cup 2018.
  7. No dog deserves to die. Not a single one! After medical tests revealed that Hunter the German Shepherd was suffering from an aggressive form of liver cancer, veterinarians recommended that he be put to sleep. So, after a lifetime of service to Connecticut's Middletown Police Department, Hunter said a final farewell to all of his friends. © Middletown Police Department - Connecticut/Facebook Hunter led an extraordinary life and was obviously treated to an equally incredible goodbye. Officer Michael D'Aresta, Hunter's handler of 10 years, carried him to the hospital last week. The whole walkway to the hospital was filled with fellow officers and police workers to salute this hero and to show appreciation for his 10 years of dedication to the department, where he helped to find missing people, sniff out drugs and apprehend suspects. © Middletown Police Department - Connecticut/Facebook The police department shared the heart-breaking pictures of Hunter's final moments on their Facebook page, where D'Aresta can be seen burying his head into his canine partner's fur. On the post, the department wrote that it was “the toughest decision any K-9 handler dreads making,” and it was an extremely difficult time for D'Aresta and his family. To honour him, the police department even changed their profile picture to this on Facebook : RIP Hunter.
  8. Ben Stokes walks off after his career-best six-wicket haul, England v West Indies, 3rd Test, Lord's, September 7, 2017/Getty Images LONDON: West Indies staged a spirited fightback against England after being skittled for 123 as batsmen suffered a torrid opening day of the series-deciding third Test at Lord´s on Thursday. All-rounder Ben Stokes stole team mate James Anderson´s thunder by taking a career-best six for 22 in a devastating spell of swing bowling either side of tea as West Indies lost their last eight wickets for 45 runs. England found the conditions just as treacherous though and when play ended they had slumped to 46-4 in reply with skipper Jason Holder and Kemar Roach taking two wickets apiece to leave England trailing by 77 runs. West Indies won the toss and elected to bat under grey skies and it was Anderson who took two early wickets to take his career test haul to 499 -- one shy of becoming only the sixth bowler to reach the 500 milestone in Test cricket. Shai Hope, a double centurion in the second Test won by West Indies at Headingley, shared a 56-run partnership with Kieran Powell, but once Hope went for 29 and Stokes took a brilliant caught-and-bowled to remove Powell the visitors crumbled. Joe Root fell cheaply as England slumped to 24 for 4, England v West Indies, 3rd Test, Lord's, September 7, 2017/Getty Images West Indies´ chances of an unlikely first Test series win in England for 29 years looked to have faded in the London gloom that meant the Lord´s floodlights were on for most of the day. But they struck back superbly with Roach removing opening duo Mark Stoneman and Alastair Cook for one and 10 respectively before Holder snared Tom Westley lbw for eight before grabbing the key wicket of England skipper Joe Root for one.
  9. A crewless aircraft blasts off from the Kennedy space center, Florida on Thursday. It was supposed to be a secret, but the cat is out of the bag now! And, we've some juicy info about this secret mission for you. It was SpaceX that launched the US Air Force's super-secret space shuttle as schools and businesses boarded up for Hurricane Irma, which is probably going to hit Florida by this weekend. It was a good day for Elon Musk and his team as it was SpaceX's 16th successful return of a first-stage booster. Though booster rockets are normally discarded at sea but as per SpaceX's normal practice, it landed its leftover booster back at Cape Canaveral for eventual reuse. So to be precise, a crewless aircraft, a technology testing mini-shuttle capable of spending years in orbit, rode an unmanned Falcon rocket on Thursday. © Air & Space Magazine As far as we know, there are two X-37B orbital test vehicles in existence and officials haven't revealed anything about what the spacecraft is doing up there. FYI between the two X-37B's they have already logged five and a half years in orbit. The first mission was launched in 2010 and the last one lasted almost two years and ended making the headline ‘US military's secret space plane lands with sonic boom in Florida' on 7th of May 2010. Earlier, the missions relied on United Launch Alliance's Atlas V rockets. But as SpaceX earned a reputation in the market the company provided a lift for the experimental mini-shuttle. Also, Air force officials said they wanted to use a variety of rockets for the X-37B program. Their objective? To be able to launch as quickly as possible, if warranted. If we talk about the size of the the mini-shuttle, they are 29ft long, with a 14ft wingspan. Now, this is way smaller if compared to Nasa's retired space shuttles which were 122ft long, with a 78ft wingspan. We all know Elon doesn't keep too many secrets from the public when it comes to revealing his company's plans for the future. You can check his Instagram account or Twitter account to stay up to date. It is indeed regularly updated. But this time it was meant to be a secret. So at the Air Force's request, the company stopped providing details about the X-37B's shuttle a few minutes after the lift off. The booster's return to SpaceX's landing zone at Cape Canaveral Air Force station was broadcasted live. No secrets here. When a SpaceX launch controller announced, “The Falcon has safely landed, ” cheers erupted at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California. A day well spent! You can watch the launch below:
  10. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger gave his backing to the decision to close the 2018 transfer window early before it was announced - AFP LONDON: English Premier League clubs voted on Thursday to close the 2018 close-season transfer window before the start of the 2018-19 campaign. Following complaints by managers that transfer activity disturbs their preparations, Premier League clubs will not be able to register new players after 1600 GMT on the Thursday before the season starts. The transfer window in Europe's other major leagues runs until August 31, meaning clubs outside England could buy players from English top-flight teams after the new Premier League deadline. "Premier League clubs have today agreed to a rule amendment that will see the summer transfer window in any year end at 17:00 on the Thursday before the start of the season," the Premier League said in a statement. "This is for Premier League clubs only and has no bearing on other leagues and competitions." The move was announced following a meeting of Premier League club officials and is not believed to have been agreed unanimously. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger gave his backing to the decision before it was announced. "Even in the games, you sit there before the games and even in players' minds they have no clarity," he told reporters at his weekly press conference. "Are they in? Are they out? Are they half in? Are they half out? Are they tapped up in the afternoon of the game by people who want to get them out? It's not the way to work and it's uncomfortable. "Every single manager in the league would agree that it's time to kick that out before the season starts and not continue to have players in the dressing room who are half out and half in." England's Football League -- the second, third and fourth tiers -- is not affected by the move. Premier League clubs spent a record £1.4 billion ($1.8 billion, 1.5 billion euros) on new players during the 2017 close-season window. The window closed last Thursday, three weeks after the new season had started. Chris Hughton, manager of promoted Brighton and Hove Albion, welcomed the decision. "That is good news," he said. "Most managers would say the same. You have a hectic enough time as it is preparing for the season." Earlier this week, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin gave his support to making the close-season player trading period shorter. Transfer windows were introduced by world governing body FIFA in 2002. In Europe they generally run from the start of June to the end of August, with a shorter mid-season window in January.

The case is being heard by a larger five-member bench and presided over by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar. LHC Chief Justice Mansoor Ali Shah on August 21 ordered police to arrest and produce Qureshi on the following day in a contempt of court case against him and another lawyer Qaiser Abbas Kazmi. LHC Multan bench restored after lawyers? strike Lahore High Court CJ Mansoor Ali Shah orders to restore the Multan bench following a row between lawyers and a judge Hearing the appeal, Justice Nisar asked why Zaman failed to appear before the LHC and asked if it would not have been better for the honour of institutions if he had. Justice Nisar said that if a prime minister can appear before court why can?t Zaman. Qureshi?s lawyer, however, maintained that he had not misbehaved with the judge neither had engaged in any brawl. The brawl had erupted after Zaman, along with other members of the association, had gone to the court during hearing on the case of rebuilding a demolished structure near Vehari Chowk. During the hearing, Zaman allegedly passed some comments over which Justice Qasim told him to leave the courtroom, subsequently agitating the latter party. Supreme Court Bar Association President Rashed Rizvi during today?s hearing lamented the bar has never been treated in such a way and said that shelling was carried out on the bar members from inside the high court during the contempt of court hearing in LHC. Lawyers call strike after arrest order triggers clashes at LHC LHC CJ has ordered police to arrest and produce LHCBA Multan president in contempt of court case During the last hearing, the LHC had also ordered the suspension of licences of Zaman and Kazmi. The chief justice of the LHC observed during the hearing that the sanctity of the court is supreme and there will be no compromise on it. The court had termed Qureshi's conduct ?most unbecoming and demeaning, that blatantly offends the prestige and honour of this court'. The court also stated that Qureshi is blatantly defying the orders of the court [to appear before it]. Following the order, enraged lawyers loyal to Qureshi attempted to forcibly enter the courtroom, breaking the gate of a corridor and chanted slogans against the chief justice inside the LHC building. Authorities used tear gas and water cannon to disperse the protesting lawyers while members of the legal fraternity pelted stones at the LHC building and police personnel protecting it. Sources said the protesting lawyers, around 200 in number, included bar members from Multan, Burewala and other areas.
  12. India's favourite foodie duo, Rocky & Mayur, recently visited the Land Down Under for an offbeat vacation, as part of their new adventure series, titled ‘Rocky & Mayur's Offbeat Australia'. And when they came back, they had a lot of dope to share with us about how to visit these 5 cities in Australia which offer offbeat experiences that are just as thrilling as the more commercially popularized ones. On their itinerary were the cities of Northern Territory, South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia. Following the map, the globe-trotting pair began their journey from Melbourne, the capital of Victoria. And here's everything they tried and suggest you do, too! 1. Victoria © Fitzroy Known to many as a sophisticated European looking city, Melbourne is dominated by trams and colonial style buildings. To begin the city's tour, you can visit Fitzroy, which offers an alternative to Melbourne's general formal side. Filled with vintage stores and second-hand book shops, the city is Melbourne's art hub. The by lanes of Fitzroy offer some of the best street art and the graffiti ranges from political in nature, beauty or simple strange and full of people's vivid imagination. © Dolphin Watching at Queens Next, head to Queens' cliff, a small town on the south side of Victoria. Here, one can enjoy a bright day in a nice boat, alongside Dolphins in the sea. To end your Victorian escapade, visit Great Ocean Road, one of the most scenic coastal drives.

Speaking in Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Saath on Tuesday night, Jamil said that courtesy the tremendous work of FIA forensic experts and anti-money laundering experts, it was a combined opinion of the prosecution team that it was an ?open and shut case?. ?For some reasons I had to disassociate myself, later other prosecutors also left and then you can see the fate of all the Axact cases,? he said, ?As many as 61 witnesses were dropped in the case.? Jamil said that the new prosecution team did not object to the bails given to the suspects, didn?t freeze financial assets of Axact as directed by the Supreme Court and didn?t present the original FBI letters to the courts.

Hamid, an executive of Axact, was arrested on Dec 19, 2016, according to a statement by former Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara. He was produced in a federal court in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, the following day. According to the department of justice, Hamid was involved in running a ?massive diploma mill? through Axact.

Instead, consumers received no instruction and worthless diplomas,? the website says.

  24. Are things starting to get serious with you and bae? We mean let's take the next step forward kinda serious and not let's get a late night ice-cream together serious! Usually there are various steps to determine the level of seriousness you achieve in a relationship. Most of them are subjective, depending on what your benchmark of something serious is. The one step though that securely seals the deal between two people, is one step short of marriage. It's deciding to live in together. A lot of thoughts and emotions go in to eventually taking a step towards living with someone. There is a lot of confusion. The person won't just be your roommate/flatmate but an integral part of your decision making process, home-wise and otherwise. Confusion can sprout up in the form of a lot of questions. Some of you might take them head on and probably wing it and go with the flow. Some of you may want to weigh your options before making this decision. We can simplify the process a bit for you by talking about some things you can keep in mind before taking the plunge. There might be some things you'd like to deliberate on, not with your partner but with yourself first, just so you can gauge your own response and be ready (or not) to live in with your partner. Are You Ready To Share Your Space? Space can be a very ambiguous concept. Ask NASA if you don't believe us! Sharing space could mean the physical space around you. Like your house, your bed, your bathroom. Everything which was once your sole territory will be compromised and you would have to share it willingly. It's can get a bit tough when you've been living all by yourself and doing everything on your own. Another aspect of space is mental and emotional space. Living with someone you're romantically involved with can take up a lot of your mental space. It can also be emotional investing. Are you ready to share the abundance of space with your partner? Of course you can do it healthily by defining boundaries but it's a challenge still. Make sure you're completely ready for it. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Are You Ready To Live With Someone Who Has Different Tastes And Choices? No two people are alike. That's an established fact. There will always be difference of opinions and life choices. Unless of course, you've found your Siamese twin (which FYI is mighty weird), you will always differ in various ways. While you may bicker every now and then, and enjoy these little arguments you have from a distance, it's a different ball game when you live together. From different mannerisms to habits to even choice in food and lifestyle, everything might differ. For instance she might not be as big as a clean freak as you are or she might be a bit too outgoing while you would rather stay at home. Living with someone everyday with small or big differences can get taxing, unless of course you both compromise and fit in with each others preferences comfortably and balance out your differences. Maybe think about what you two are like people and take it from there. © Thinkstock/Getty Images Are You And Your Partner Willing To Share Finances? This is one question that can irk you a bit. It's uncomfortable at first because you are going to take a step forward and ask someone to move in with you. Obviously, you expect her to share finances as well and not leave the load of paying for her share, on you. You have to be very sure she would be willing to split the costs with you, unless you're more than happy to pay for her share if she's financially unstable monetarily. If you've been asked to move in with her, are you financially stable to do so right now? Will you be in a position to pay for rent, utilities, groceries, eating out etc.? These are imperative questions you need to ask yourself and maybe have a detailed discussion with your partner about the same. © Thinkstock/Getty Images What Is Your Ultimate Goal/Motivation To Live With Someone? There could be many reasons to move in with someone but you have to be very clear as to why you want to. Is it because you've been together for a while and this seemed like the next step? Or are you being financially practical and think it's a great opportunity to split costs etc.? Or is it because you both eventually want to get married and want to see what's it like to live together? Whatever your reasons may be, think about the one which is most valid and ruminate over it. If it's worth it and if it's something you really want or need, definitely make the right choice. © Thinkstock/Getty Images These four questions should probably clear the air for you a bit. Sometimes live in relationships can collapse, sometimes they stay stagnant and comfortable and sometimes they lead to marriage. Whatever is on your agenda, the initial dilemma should definitely be cleared off first. So if you're confused about wether or not its time to live in with your partner, maybe contemplate and think about all the possible pro's and cons before having a dialogue about the same, with your partner.
