I have know the guy I'm seeing for about 12 months now. We started as friends and would get together for movie nights etc he has known from the beginning I have 2 children which is why we kept it as friends/casually seeing each other. 3 months ago we both admitted we have feelings for one another that we really loved each other and would like to give a relationship a go. He has been talking about moving in together and we started looking seriously at a house the 4 of us could move into together. Then he dropped a bomb on me saying he isn't ready to move in anymore he likes the freedom he has of being able to go home when he needs a break. He is wonderful with the kids enjoys being with them and playing etc just sometimes they get too much. There is an age gap between us so he's still young so I understand why he might be scared. I guess I'm just a little lost as to what I should do keep things how they are and wait until he's ready to be a proper family and be a stepdad or cut my losses.
