My new boyfriend and I

We have hit it off well, it's been five weeks since we started going out but I've known him for 15 years, he's my best friend's brother. I know we're only five weeks into our relationship but I feel closer to him than anyone else because of how long we've known each other, I use to talk to him a lot even when I was with my ex. He was single at the time but I was still with my ex and once I left him we started talking but didn't get too far we've been taking it slow the last few years and he finally got the courage to ask me out, I said yes right away and then asked him what took you so long to ask me out? His answer was he wanted to wait for the right moment and didn't know if I felt the same way about him that he feels about me. I said I'm happy you finally asked me out.

We have been talking about getting a place together, thing is we both have four kids so that equals eight. His kids are 17, 14, 11 and 8 and mine are 12, 11, 7 and 6. The two 11 year old's are both boys and have become really close. He's in the process of buying a house and asked if I wanted to come live with him, I'm currently living at my parents with all four kids and pretty cramped there. I asked my parents about it and they told me they think it would be good for me to go live with him and don't think it'll be a problem. The thing I have is I've already moved out of my parents house once, I want this time to be the final time because I don't want to have to come back here to live. My boyfriend told me that I don't have anything to worry about and he'll help take care of me and the kids he works full time and makes good money so I think I found myself a winner finally.

    Thanks. So I should go for it? He keeps telling me to come live with him, I don't know why I'm so worried because I've known him for so many years and his sister is my best friend.

      I think it's normal to be hesitant and cautious in any new relationship but if this is what you want and he's all you say he is go with your heart. Besides, like you said you may have only been officially going out 5 weeks, but you've known each other for years. It sounds like you've got a keeper. Hope it all works out for you!

        Thank ya's and yup Debi they told me if I ever need to move back in I can. He's super close to getting his new place and wants me to live with him so I have given it some thought and going to move in with him I think I'm happy that way and it will keep us close together.
