My two cents: If you do decide to move with him, have a really clear, direct conversation about what will happen if you two decide to break up. Will he help you move back home? Will he give you a sort of "two weeks notice" about it so you can get your things together and your head on straight?

Oh, and try to be as financially independent as possible. There are extremely good reasons for this in terms of the relationship at this point that have nothing to do with paying rent. It can prevent feelings of guilt or compulsion to stay in the relationship to either have support or to support him.

Ultimately, as you know, it's your decision as you know your circumstances. So I won't recommend which way to go, just whatever you do have your eyes as wide open as possible.
