Dear Robyn and Skippy;
Here’s my story. I’ve been seeing the same guy for two years now and I can’t seem to get him on the same life path that I’m on. The two things I want most are to have children and to travel.
I’m a teacher and I want to spend my summers travelling to other countries. He isn’t against the idea of travel but he makes less money than I do and is reluctant to go into debt. He doesn’t have any credit card bills at all and he wants to keep it that way.
He also doesn’t seem to be very keen on the idea of raising children. I’m very close to my parents. We talk every Sunday on the phone for hours no matter where I am or what I’m doing. I’m an only child and family is important to me. I want to have at least two children. Maybe more. I don’t think he’s at all interested in having a family or even marriage. I’ve hinted about it to him but he never responds.
Besides those two points we get along great. We have a lot in common and enjoy each other’s company. But without travelling and children I feel my life will not be complete. Is he going to come around or is it time for me to call it quits?
