What is an actual "dealbreaker" when it comes to relationships?

I met a wonderful man. He is kind, loving, smart, generous, funny, encouraging and we have unbeatable chemistry and honest communication. On one hand, I'm trying to be in the moment and enjoy this process (about six weeks in now). On the other hand, I'm thinking about the future. I'm a firm believer in gut instincts. When I hit it off with someone, it's often instant and has lead to some long and meaningful relationships. I also have a bad habit of overlooking issues. I've never ended a relationship. We have a great time when we're together and see one another often (5-6 times a week). Things have progressed really quickly and I feel confident in what we've established in terms of labels and exclusivity. I have no doubt of how he feels about me, nor of how I feel about him. But. He is in a very precarious financial and living situation. He's a freelancer who often goes weeks with very little/no money. He's helping friends with their business, so as of now has a free place to stay, but that too is a potentially temporary agreement. He has no interest in taking a job just for a paycheck.

Is he or isn't he "into it"?

He's just not that into you. How much of this is true and how can one ever really know? Scenario/question after the jump. [more inside]

Am I overthinking this or finally trying to excercise logic?

Go with the flow or bail? I'm a 33 y.o. female, looking for something serious, have been single for over three years, just came out of a bad dating situation and boom! met an awesome dude. But he's moving in five weeks and intends to leave the country in less than two years. [more inside]

I'm in the worst non-relationship ever and I don't get myself out.

I'm addicted. To a person. And much like addictions to other things, I know I need rehab, but I'm not ready to go there. What can I do to manage until I bottom out/finally wake up/he drops me? [more inside]

I know I need to end it, but I also know I won't

Help me end this toxic dating situation. Maybe even share stories about finally realizing you had to cut things off and how you actually went through with it. [more inside]

It's been five dates and I'm still lukewarm

I met a guy through OKC a couple of months ago. We've gone out five times and I'm still not feeling a spark. While it's not a complete "no", I'm beginning to worry that waiting to come around might not be a good idea either. When do or should you cut things off with someone when you're so unsure?

Do I or don't I contact him?

First it was non-stop communication, now it's slowed to almost a halt. Should I contact him or lay low? [more inside]
