Most Helpful Guy
I guess it depends on what you want. Could you see yourself living with him as you did recently for the foreseeable future or did you need some change in your life?
If you did, then I wouldn't necessarily say that you dodged a bullet, but I think you made the right decision. I think I can relate to the "living day by day" part that your boyfriend said. If you are the kind of person who likes the idea of a partner that is career driven with many or at least a few goals, I would say that you definitely made the right decision.
