How do I tell my BF I need to pull back from everything!
In his eyes if I'm his GF and serious about the relationship, I NEED to live with him.
My perspective is that I am his GF, I can live at my apartment and still maintain a relationship with him. If he want more serious relationship then he needs to make a commitment. By that I would like a proposal and a ring. We don't need to run out and get married but I want to be engaged by now. I should have listened to my grandpa.....He passed in 2009 but I still hear his voice in the back of my head, " You do not live with any man unless you are married. Your giving away everything and he don't have to marry you!" He was super old-school man. It has come down to me completely shutting down when he wants to talk. We are not intamte at all, NO I'm not getting it from anywhere else......lol!
I choose him to settle down with because he is a family man and I know he will do right by me. I love him and his son but I need a break to recharge. I know I need to ask myself the serious questions about this relationship.
I dont want to looses him but I don't want to live with him.
If I move out again then that's it for the relationship, he think I have abondoned him and his son.
I'm just stuck and don't know what to do or how to tell him.
