Roommate Wanted

After my father had died I sat down and took a good look at my finances and realized that I got my father EVERYTHING he asked for in his last few months on this earth and realized I totally screwed up my finances. (How's that for a run-on sentence?)

After the sheer panic of, "what the fuck am I going to do now?" I just made some calls to creditors and explained to them. But before that I had seriously entertained the idea of asking one of the guys I am dating to move in. I know he was looking for a place to live because the owner of the home he is renting is moving back to town and needs it to live in.

I am glad I thought it over. Even though he is a great guy and I enjoy every minute we spend together, I just don't think he is one I could commit to. I some how screwed my head on straight.

I was talking to him this past week and told him what I had thought. His response was, "Now you tell me AFTER I signed a six month lease." I told him, "I can't make a commitment with a guy right now."

Now I have to ask myself what he is thinking about for me and our relationship.

I can relate to the expenses for a loved one in their last year. I lost my mother and my wife within a year of each other. When doing my taxes I saw that it cost me over $250K for 2 years of nursing homes and private nurses at my home and other medical expences. So much is not covered by insurance.

As to having someone live with you I also did that as I was lonely after I lost my wife of many years. I should not have done this but now I find my self in a situation I am not happy with but no easy way out as I remarried too soon. Be careful what you do as you can regret it for a long time after.

willie8one2, Thanks for the advice, I certainly will take that into consideration. Although, I do feel I made the best possible choice.
