What are the pitfalls of moving in with your significant other?

My girlfriend and I are planning on moving in together later this year. I am 30-years old and have never lived with a significant other. I have lived with roommates in the past and for the past three years have lived alone. My question is: what sort of problems should I be aware of when moving in with a signfiicant other?

Obviously, some problems will be dependent on the personalities of the people involved, so I am looking more for the general sorts of issues that arise when couples move in together. I have grown pretty accustomed to living by myself and have compltete control over my apartment. I am not afraid of giving up some of that control and finding compromises in areas where her and I have different priorities (i.e. level of clutter). I am excited to move in with her and when we do move it will be to a new apartment, rather than our current apartments.
