My boyfriend and I have been together now for 6 years. We started dating when we were 19, and we are now going on age 26. I understand that since we started dating so young there are bound to be a lot of changes as we grow older. But, I am starting to feel like these changes are pulling us apart. In the time span of our relationship I have earned an Associates Degree, Bachelor's Degree, secured a full-time job, moved into my own apartment (out of my parents house), and started grad school. Call me goal oreiented if you will, but when I set a goal I do all I can to make it a reality. But, to compare, my boyfriend has accomplished in the same amount of time: Technical degree, secured a part-time job (the same one he had when we met!). He has not attempted to use his degree to find a better job, has not made any effort in doing anything for the future. He has known since day one that I want to get married, have kids, have a house, etc. and has always agreed that he wants the same things. But, seeing him now, with the same part-time job, and no motivation to do better, I feel like he has decided for both of us that we can's have those things. I feel angry towards him because I feel he is holding us back from changing and growing. He says he isn't ready to grow up and that he needs time. Am I supposed to continue waiting? Outside opinions would be much appreicated....thanks for reading!
