SaraW Posted March 5, 2018 Share Posted March 5, 2018 My bf and I are both 28 years old. We both have great jobs. I own my own condo working on getting more education. He travels the world most of the year making a really good living. I’m supportive of his career and when he’s gone which is for most of the year I stay busy and positive make an effort to drive to see him when he’s on the east cost. For the most part our relationship is great. He’s very sweet and kind and we have a lot of great stuff. However I feel like we aren’t progressing. We have been together for four years and while I busted my ass working two jobs to save and renovate my place he still lives at home with his parents. The plan was we were going to move out separately for a year then move in together. He makes no effort to move out because he said and I quote “likes having things taken care of”. He’s also a bit of a mommas boy. Which I don’t think is all they way a bad thing but I do find that I have to ask him for time alone and not me, him and his parents time. I asked him about moving in in September of last year he told me he was scared and wasn’t ready. He said he didnt want to have an argument with me face to face. Which I wasn’t expecting at all and I found to be ridiculous. I’m his first serious relationship and I get that he’s learning but I’m tired of having to wait for him to grow up. He asked me not to leave him and o don’t want to but I’m growing impatient because he keeps changing our future plans and not saying anything until I bring it up. I have told him I don’t want my time wasted he says he has no intentions of doing so but my gut is telling me other wise. I feel like if that was the case he would be showing me something. And on top of all of this everyone around me in engaged or married or pregnant and I am trying not to let it bother me but people keep asking me oh well when are you having a wedding or you need to hurry up if you want a kid. Yet no one puts pressure on him. And everyone wants to talk about their wedding. I’m over it. I need some advice on one my relationship and two how to handle social pressures. Thank you.
