@alohakay:  I could see your mom being a bit hesitant, but I would explain to her that you’re going to have BOTH names on the lease and that you are going to split household costs 50/50 so she feels more that you’re roommates and it makes it a bit easier if something hits the fan.

She’s always going to worry no matter what, but you have to be able to stand on your own sometime 🙂

Can you talk with your Step Dad and explain to him whats going on and try to get him to help you out?

I would also ask your Mom what she’s worried about, your safety or you sharing the living space that way you can address the root of the concerns 🙂

Is your mom opposed to you moving in with BF?  2 years is quite a long time of dating someone seriously.  You are an adult and can make your own decisions.  She must understand that.  Sounds like she’s having a hard time letting you go.  She will get used to it over time.  I talk to my mom almost everyday (whether its a text or email or call) just to let her know I’m not completely gone.  Anyone will tell you it’s recommended you live with someone before you marry them.  Renting is much easier than buying together, so I suggest renting (you didn’t specify).
