Dear Beat Breakfast Panel,
My boyfriend and I have been going out since last March. We have gotten pretty serious. We spend every weekend together and most evenings at either his parents or mine as we both still live at home.
When I first met him, he wanted to buy a house but he couldn’t afford it on his own so he was looking at houses with his best friend. My boyfriend and his friend spent the whole summer looking but they were unable to find the right house and they have now given up until Spring.
I am getting ready to move out of my parents’ house for the first time and I have suggested to my boyfriend that we should get a house together instead. It seems like the perfect time: we are both ready to move out and he is looking for someone to help with the costs. However, he is hesitating and won’t commit to seriously looking for houses together.
When I suggested that I could take some money out of an investment to help with the down payment he suggested that I leave the money there in case I need it.
Should I take this as a bad sign? Things are going great with us, why would he not want to buy a house with me?
Should I keep pressing for us to look at houses together or should I be backing off?
Hopeful House Hunter in Kitchener
