  7. If you can’t fit your furniture and her furniture into your shared apartment, you can be the chivalrous one and put yours in storage.

  16. You can impress your date with legal jargon that you learned when you signed your lease.

  17. If you think about it (like, really think about it), explaining the excellent security features that a storage facility provides is just another way of saying, “You are the love of my life and I will always protect you.”

  18. You know what they say: “The couple that stores together, stays together.”

  19. Giving someone the key to a disc lock is basically like giving them the key to your heart.

  20. Nothing says commitment—for at least the next 30 days—like a month-to-month lease on a storage unit.
