I've been dating a Cap. man exclusively for a little over a year now. I'm 40 - divorced with 2 minor kids. My boyfriend is 54 and his kids are in their 20's. He too is divorced and his marriage and divorce were horrible. He recently told me that after great consideration he doesn't think he can be everything I need him to be because he doesn't want to raise kids into his 60's. Followed with he still wants to keep dating until we both decide we are ready to see other people. Ummm...... this all seems weird to me, yet very logical to him. I thought we were headed toward marriage because HE brought it up and talked about the future. Him wanting to still date seems like a cop out to me. I'm a Cancer so you already know I'm a tad bit emotional lol. We get along very well and have a great relationship, although I do believe he makes a lot of his romantic decisions out of fear based on his previous marriage and divorce. He helps me with my kids now and many of my house responsibilities in terms of repairs etc... We have been friends for about 10 years prior to dating. I'm a little hurt at how quick he can turn his emotions on/ off and I haven't decided what I want to do. I know that he loves me but apparently not enough for a long term commitment. So like in a few months or a year he's going to decide he's ready to date someone else and just say oh by the way....... Any advice?
