Yes, bitter isn't a good way to be in a relationship, and certainly not the way I would like to live. I'm generally a happy person with a lot of good things going on in my life (career, child, friends etc). I have worked hard to make these aspects of life work for myself. The ideal thing would have been for him to move here on his own, take his own apartment, and spend some time independently, to see if he liked it here before he made the big move and moved in with me. It would have also given me the chance to see him on a regular basis, so that my decision in moving in with him was better informed. But unfortunately, he isnt in a financial position to do it, and from what I can see, never will be. He really hasn't planned for that kind of a scenario, and has assumed that I will take care of him. I know this because I asked him.
I am glad you mentioned the fact that he seems to have alot of support around him, Pepper, he really does. And you are right, due to that fact, he will be fine on his own. He's a great guy, funny and warm, I really do love him, but I really have to be practical and think logically on this one.
