I figured that there is no point putting my life and dreams on hold in the hope that I'll meet Mr Right. Pretty sure single men buying houses don't get asked 'what if you meet someone?' like we did, it's just accepted that they're making strides to build a life for themselves.

I can’t help but come back to the thought that as he is unwilling and incapable of trying to make up for this emotionally, doesn’t he deserve to do so financially? And don’t I deserve something from him that could bring me something good in my life?
