Fans of the Big Brother franchise know that Mark Jansen and Elena Davies just took a huge step in their relationship — moving in together to a place in Dallas Fort Worth, TX. While happy as can be, the reality stars got candid during an exclusive interview with Life & Style about some ~changes~ their relationship is facing now that they’re shacking up.

“[We have to] come to a common ground. We both had to figure out how to compromise. I’ve lived alone for six years in my own house and never had a roommate since college, and have been able to do what I pleased. Just realizing that I don’t always get my way is probably the hardest part for me,” the blonde beauty shared via phone.

Mark chimed in with, “I don’t have my place in Buffalo. I mean, I do, but I’m not going there. It’s not like, ‘I don’t care what you do because it’s your place. I’m gonna go back to my place and do what I want to do. I’m so used to it being my place — like honestly, if you don’t like it, learn to like it or you have your place in Dallas.’ Now that it’s our place I can’t really do that.” We’re sure they’ll be used to it in no time!

Of course, now that the two are living together, we just had to ask if they’ll be following in Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf‘s footsteps by getting engaged. Elena is definitely on board — and shared she’s just waiting for Mark to buy the ring and pop the question.

“We’ve been talking about it, and through all the ups and downs it’s been — it feels like I’ve been with her for so long, but it hasn’t even been a year, which is crazy. I’ve seen how I want to change for the better, how she brings out positive changes in me — which I haven’t really seen before, so I really can’t see my life without her,” he gushed.
