How do I tell her - October 29th 2014, 09:48 PM

My boyfriend and I have been talking about living together and I really want to. He's been trying to find a new house because the one he's been living in has never been livable. He just told me today that he found a place and he's moving next week. He has to come back in April to get his mom's boyfriend, so he gave a choice of either going with him next week or waiting until April. He's moving 4 hours away, so if I choose to wait we won't be able to see each other until he comes to get me in April. I hate being so far away from him and I really want to be with him everyday. The only problem is my mom. She's the type of person that has to control everything and doesn't know when to let go. I'm almost 21 and I feel like its time for me to move out and take care of myself. I really need to move out for my sanity. She treats me like I'm some stupid kid that doesn't know how to do anything for myself when I'm an adult. How do I tell her I'm leaving?

I'm pretty much in the exact same boat- except it's my boyfriend's mother who might be hesitant to let him leave.

I'd explain to her that the area you want to move to is closer to an ideal area to work. Mention your boyfriend only for the sake of saying that sharing a place will cut the costs in half. Try to make it from an, "I'm an independent person and want to have more responsibilities in my life, and moving out will provide me with more progressive opportunities".

I think you should have a calm conversation with your mother and make her see its the best for you. you need to grow apart
