Big changes are on the horizon.
Firstly, my ex and I are opting to move back with our parents to save money. I don't know what he plans to do but I'm going to take some college courses and take care of some other things. I work full time and am a licensed driver (finally lol) and now that I'm single, I have so much freedom.
My parents are moving out of the country in a few months and that's another reason I want to move back in. I was raised by my dad for 9 years of my life and I've always been very close to him. In a couple of months, I'll be lucky to see him once a year if I can afford to take a trip out of the country.
Yes, we can afford to live on our own but it would be beneficial to save up and not try to hurry into adulthood.
Another thing is that my bf and I are no longer together. We didn't fight or anything. We've been together for five years since highschool so we want to take a break and see if this relationship is truly what we want. Too often couples commit young then make mistakes in their relationship. I want to avoid that.
We want to explore and have freedom for a while. If in a few months we still feel strongly for each other, we may hook up again and we'd like to lease/buy a home.
I'm not really looking to get in another relationship in the meantime
