A few months ago, I asked if he sees us getting a house in the future. We sometimes talk about what we want in a house (garage, back yard, etc.). He said we can talk about it more once I'm able to pay off my car.
I came into a little bit of money where I'll be able to pay off my car within the next three months. I told my boyfriend that today, and he goes "oh, money for vacation!" Okay yeah, that's fine, but paying off my car is first priority. What about saving money for a house now? I didn't have it in me to say that.
I also don't want to get a mortgage with just a boyfriend. That's a huge commitment. I don't want to commit to a house until he's ready to commit to me with at least an engagement.
How do I revisit this conversation? I actually want to make a goal with him or some kind of plan to move forward now, since paying off my car is actually happening.
Guys, how do you feel about this? Girls, have you ever been in the same situation? What did you say? Any kind of opinion/advice from anyone would be very much appreciated! We're going on a road trip tomorrow, so I feel like it would be the perfect opportunity to talk.
