I am on Fedora 22 but had the same issue on Fedora 21.

When I run I systemd-analyze blame get the following results.

Will recomend you to look at journal log size look at

The obvious suspect, of course, is couchpotato, but everything that takes more than 10 seconds is a possible issue. Try running systemd-analyze critical-chain to see if there's any one service that's acting as a bottleneck. Don't use your only answer to post the results; add it as an edit to the question.

This earlier question suggests that running systemctl mask plymouth-quit-wait.service as root will keep that unneeded service from running at boot, and considering that it takes 5 min 29 sec to "complete," that may be enough to get your boot time back to what it should be.

I fixed the issue by changing from GDM to LXDM and what a difference it made to me.
