So Here is the back story:
My boyfriend and I haven't been together for very long. Since we were friends we've always gotten along very well. Our relationship hasn't changed much either, we are best friends, we trust each other, we're working on clear communication, we laugh all of the time but when being serious is needed we can do that, we understand each other, and we don't take each other for granted (we say what we appreciate often).
Two weekends ago we celebrated six months together. It was he first time that he told me that he loves me. This is a very big step for him because it's not something that would just say. Those feelings are difficult for him because of his past relationships, so it was kind of a big deal! Before last weekend, we did not talk about our future together. We were very content just being together in the present. Sure we'd plan that I stay with him over Christmas Break because of a job that I had gotten, but nothing of what we were going to do together after school. I graduate before he does by a semester (he's older than me), but I have to continue at another school while he is done and will be looking for a job. He has always talked about going home and trying to get job there, while I was going home to go to another school. Our parents houses are an hour and a half away from each other. I also am planning on moving into an apt closer to my school.
Here is what I am getting at:
So this past weekend I went home with him to go to a wedding. On our way back to school he brought something up.
He said, "So after I graduate, I was thinking about looking at jobs in the Twin Cities"
"Oh, you were?"
"Yes, so I could be closer to you. You are looking for apartments in that area correct?"
"Yes I am"
"Would you mind if I live with you?"
"Of course not Sweetheart!"
Also, Sorry about how long this is. I figured the back story was kind of important.
So from a guys stand point, a man who has never talked about "our future" together, just his future and mine separately, this is a BIG STEP isn't it?
I'm just asking because I am very excited about this conversation, but also very fricken scared! Do you have any advice?
EDIT: Let me make this clear: We'd be moving in together some time after Fall 2014. Sorry I didn't make that clear!
