i just joined this group about a week ago, and don't know any of you yet, but i could really use some help!
here's the deal~~ i have been dating a guy for about 2 1/2 years, and things seemed to be going ok~ he's great with my son, and is just a genuinely nice guy. the problem i'm having is that we've been talking a little more about our "future" together, and we're not wanting the same things out of life~ at all! i feel that i'm young, and still have my whole life ahead of me. i haven't even finished school yet. there are so many things i want to do with my life still- move around a little, find out where i "belong", travel, and eventually, get married and have a couple more kids. the problem is, he feels like he's already done everything he wants to do with his life, and is ready to just settle down- now- and be done with it. he's been married, and divorced, and has 2 kids, and has found his career path, and feels like that's enough. he doesn't want to move, doesn't want anymore kids, and is perfectly content with where his life is right now. i'm not. so basically, what i think is that if we stay together, one of us is going to be unhappy, because we had to make some sort of compromise that we really didn't want to make. ok, so now that i've written you a novel, any advice that you may have to offer would be greatly appreciated!!!!! thanks for letting me get it all out!
