Yay, relationship issues

I currently live with my boyfriend of almost-two-years, and we've been living in an apartment together for almost a year. The lease is almost up. Since we moved in, my work has moved from a convenient 10 minutes away to an irritating 30 minutes away on a good day. Not the worst commute in the world, but still. My parents and my school are about forty minutes away on a good day, where previously, my school was about five minutes away.

Since the lease is almost up, I've thought that maybe I should move closer to my school/work, but my boyfriend is not having it. He used to talk about moving someplace closer to his favorite hobby store, which is right across the street from where I now work. Before we moved into the apartment, we seriously considered renting out a basement. Now he doesn't want to move, because it's too expensive, and rent rates have gone up, and he won't move into a basement, because "it's not private enough, and he doesn't want to feel anxious coming home again," and he's scared that if I move out I'll break up with him. My parents are willing to help me move.

He's a good, sweet, giving guy normally and I love him, but I don't know.
