I wouldn't ditch friends a lot to spend time with a boyfriend/girlfriend. Most bf/gf relationships break up, and you won't have any friends if you break up with him. For a husband/wife relationship, yes, because that a much deeper relationship.
Why not get together maybe a few times a week, and also have outside interests, like your friends?
I think you may be smothering him, so give him some space to be himself. Good luck.
"what is he going to be like if we move in together then?"
If he's already wanting space, moving in wouldn't be the smartest thing to do. I very much discourage shacking up. Most of them never make it to the altar, and of those that do, 95% of them are divorced within 10 years. Not so with people who didn't shack up before marriage.
I never shacked up before I got married. I wanted better than that, and I got it. I got married at age 29. The best things come to those who wait, and it sure did for me.
