Moving in...
Hi, my boyfriend has been living alone now for 3 months and he has not asked me to move in with him, he says he wants to live alone, so that he can have 'alone time'.

I don't expect to move in straight away, but obviously would like to move in later on in our relationship.

Do you think he will ever ask me to move in?

You know, me, there was a time, no so long ago, when the idea of a girl moving in with her boyfriend was seen as so shocking and scandalous, that it was uncommon and kept secret. Now maybe the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction, when after only a couple of months you assume there must be something wrong because you have NOT moved in with him. It's all voluntary and optional ! It may be very important to him, for no sinister reasons at all, to have "alone time" and to develop his sense of independence in running his own life in his own place. Let him enjoy it.
I wonder, on the other hand, why this one particular aspect of your relationship, the moving in idea, has become so very important to you ?
