My boyfriend and I have been together for 5 yrs (living together for 2 yrs). I've recently found myself wanting to move forward in our relationship, that is; buy a house, get engaged, get a dog. We talked about buying a home several months back so I did a ton of research and created a portfolio of houses in our area that were in our price range so on and so forth. He never said anything about it again! I've tried talking to my boyfriend about our problems and how I want to move forward but he just says we have different outlooks on life. I don't know to do! I love this man, but is just doesn't seem like he will ever be ready to step up and be "the man"! I need to him to start proving to me that he can do this and will do what it takes to provide for a future family but he is happy living pay check to pay check. What do I do? Is is time for me to move on and look elsewhere for someone who desires the same things I do? I'm so confused and lost!
