I am 100% sure the next levle he mentioned means marriage.
we had deep feeling on each other, and he want me to be good and happy. I dont know why he does not want to bulid a family with me. Nodoy is perfect, no matter outside and inside, I believe one reason he may consider is his financial condition. yet I dont know whether there are other reasons.
ys, marriage is not just romantic thing, it is more reality, cz it is not cheap. Yet I heard and saw real cases that some marrige couples were not rich, while after marriage, they work hard together to make their life better.
I also heard that if sb really loves another one, he would prefer her to lead hard time with him together rather than let her go to live with a rich guy.
