What did my boyfriend mean?

Anonymous
Last night my boyfriend has been talking about getting a place together. We live in California. He lives in a small studio and I live in a 1 bedroom. I’ve lived here for 7 years so my rent is only $970. We were looking at places and I got frustrated with how high the rent is and said “Why don’t you just move into my place? My landlord will probably only raise it by $50-$75.” He said “Nah, that’s weird for a guy to move into his girls place. It’s like he’s mooching. If the girl moved in with the guy, then it’s like he’s providing.” That was kind of silly to me because if we can save money, I’m all for it. I want to bring it up again, but I don’t want to be shut down. Do other guys think like this too or what?
