Seriously good food is a staple of their lifestyles
Look, we can all acknowledge a certain love of late-night Tasty Burger, but odds are good that Bostonians can also wax poetic about their favorite raw bar, or the latest creation at Brick & Mortar. We've got some serious pride in our food scene, and we're always up for trying something new.
Chances are that you already have a friend or two in common
Boston is a small city, and there are only so many social circles. If you’re involved in any of the same activities as your S.O., you’re bound to have mutual friends (at least on Facebook), which should make all your group outings more fun… or at least lead to a round or two of, "Wait, how do you know them?"
They'll always call you an Uber
It’s the only decent thing to do after you’ve had a few, and who wants to drive through Downtown anyway?
Cohabitation is not news to them
If they spent any time in Boston in their college years and/or early 20s, they’ve already learned how to live with other people in fairly close quarters, which means they know how to inform you that your day-old Dino's takeout boxes sitting out on the counter are disgusting without, you know… saying it like that. They’re willing to compromise, and they’ve figured out what their major roommate boundaries are, which means you'll spend less time on silly arguments, and more time out stargazing at Coit Observatory, or something equally nauseatingly romantic.
