Yes, Mr. Anderson... (sorry, this conversation reminds from something out of the Matrix). Let me just call you Paul.
I think if one collects stuff that makes it difficult to keep a girlfriend, one might consider priorities. Which is more important, girl or stuff? Alternatively, is there potential girl who likes stuff? Further, if a gentleman is living in his girlfriend's house rather than his own, unless he has recently come upon a bit of hard luck, it might be a sign that consideration of life and priorities is in order. At least if you have your own place no one will throw you out.
