I see where you're going with it, but with "lower" prices in the city, you'd be attracting professional people from the suburbs to move back into the city, as they would now be more likely to be able…

I'm leaning towards, "he's just not that into you". That seems to be the simplest explanation, considering that he's 45, he's known you for more than six months, and nothing's yet to happen between…
