I found him one that’s not more expensive than his old one.
We have many disagreements on how much stuff to keep (I have many clothes, shoes, etc.), but the biggest disagreement is whose mattress to keep. A: Use your fancy mattress, and buy one of those memory foam toppers they sell at Bed Bath & Beyond. It’s unbearable to try to fall asleep every night on a surface you really can’t stand.
However, he continues to refer to me as his girlfriend to friends and co-workers, and we function as a couple, so I’m confused about how to assimilate this new information. I can live with that, and I’ve accepted the likelihood that sooner or later one of us will meet someone better suited as a long-term partner.
I’m feeling ambivalent and unsure of how to think of “us” now. But he clearly wants to continue with all the trappings of a legit relationship, and he says he’s happy. A: I think it’s fairly clear what’s going on here: Your boyfriend is happy with you now, but he wants to have a family someday and considers your age gap insurmountable in the long run.

Last month, she told me her boyfriend was moving in with her, and this weekend I met him. At TED2009, audience member Cindy Gallop gave a 4-minute presentation that became one of the event’s most talked about.Speaking from her personal experience, she argued that hardcore pornography had distorted the way a generation of young men think about sex, and talked about how she was fighting back with the launch of a website to correct the myths being propagated.He is holding out for a younger woman with whom he can have a family.Of course I’m disappointed, but we had made no promises, and I hope he can create the life he’s envisioned.If he starts treating your mother in a way that suggests a potential for abuse, you should absolutely intervene, but there’s a non-zero chance that he’s just happily dating an older woman. We have given our sons a lot help over the years—over ,000 for several failed businesses to one and bought a condo for the other.
