  • Yep I'd be mad. Some men are so selfish when it comes to money. Now you know next time, get a big chunk before he does~lol

  • I'm not sure I understand, you should have about $2,500 left from what you are saying. So are you saying he has spend more than his $5,000 to your $1,000?

  • Depending on how far you have to drive that should be enough for a week in FL Find good rates for the motel online. You can get a discount for a week stay. Surely his parents will help feed you. You will be fine. Just enjoy what you have and don't sweat what you no longer have. It's all good.
