Since it’s been a while since I posted, I thought I should write a little update.
Last month my Boyfriend or Best Friend told me that he wants to get married and buy a house with me, but that he doesn’t wanna get engaged whilst living with roommates, as is the current situation. This got me a little frustrated as I didn’t think his housing situation would change anytime soon, and I started to prepare myself for waiting and more waiting.
Then last week, he told me that he wants to move out of his current house and find a new place (to rent) with me in a couple of months! I am really happy about this now as we are taking a big step in our relationship, and based on what he has recently said it is one step closer to the proposal! I have been very good at keeping quiet about engagement talk lately, and it seems like that’s working. All I need to do now is to be patient.

Very exciting! I wouldn’t buy a house with him until you are engaged or married but renting a place together is nice!

Buying a house is out of the question financially speaking right now anyway, that probably won’t be realistic for us until next year. But I definitely won’t buy anything without a ring.

I wonder what his reason is for not wanting to get engaged while living with roommates. My Fiance lives with 3 people, and I live with 2 people. We’re not planning on moving in together until we’re married. Does he not want to be living with roommates or does he want to live with you before getting engaged? That’s 2 different issues. I’m just curious what his reasons were – I think your plan sounds swell!

He is very unhappy about living with roommates, so this is an important factor. That’s understandable; his roommates are all single guys and the place is a proper bachelor pad. He does not like living there at all and says he wants to settle down with me in a nice “adult” house we can make our own.
