So I have lived with my best friend and his wife for 7 years now...we share an apartment. I have dated very little in this time frame. I am almost 30 years old and I feel like I need to start really living my life. I lost a bunch of weight, started working on coming totally out and have met an amazing guy who I have been dating casually for about a month. I feel like I need to adress the fact that when the lease is up I need to move on in my life and I have mentioned it. They are treating me like I am abandoning them and I am the one at blame for wanting to move out on my own and try to become my own person. They are a big part of my life, but I feel trapped. Any advice? How do I tell them that it's time to move on and make them see that's it's not to hurt them, but it's about me living my life to its fullest.
