Q: My boyfriend was laid off from his job, so he's moving out of his apartment to stay with his parents. I told him he could stay with me until he got back on his feet, but he said it would be uncomfortable if he couldn't help out with rent and utilities. We've been dating for about five months and haven't had any serious discussions about moving in together. I respect his decision, but I feel a little bit slighted. Am I overreacting?
Mia: Don't feel slighted. Be glad your guy isn't trying to live off you. Sounds like you got a good one. Help him job search and save the living together discussion for when you're further along.
