diverp Posted December 2, 2004 Share Posted December 2, 2004 I have dated my girlfriend since July. Going on 6 months now. We are very close, have gotten over the honeymoon period and have a fanstastic relationship. We do almost everything together, except when we have a guys/girls night or something like that. So, we talked about her moving in with me. We are aiming for mid to late January. Right now, we are just planning, taking care of Christmas and the like. I have two dogs. One I have had for a couple of years and another I rescued from the pound a few months ago. Actually I rescued both from there. Bad side is that the newer dog is a female who is larger than the first and larger than my girlfriend's dog. This dog has shown a bit of a mean streak towards my other dog from time to time and I am a little weary of how she is going to get along full time with my girlfriend's dog. So, I am trying to find a good home for her, that is not the pound and in a home where she is an only dog. So, I told a guy friend of mine about our moving in together and the dog situation. He starts preaching to me about "well you gotta do what you gotta to...I wouldn't just ditch a dog like that". He was also unsupportive of my girlfriend moving in with me. He never said anything bad, but he had this condescending tone when we talked about it. I love my girlfriend and we think it is time to take the next step. I was wondering how other people have handled this kind of thing. I have introduced the girlfriend to my dad and my friends. My dad thinks she is great and my girlfriend gets along with everyone I know. I am thinking that this friend of mine (who is about 9 years younger and has commitment issues with his girlfriend) is not really being cool at all in not supporting me with this. Or, am I just taking his word too highly. What matters to me is the relationship with my girlfriend. She is my number one focus right now. Quote Link to comment
