I'm sick of my boyfriend depending on me financially!
I'm 28 and my boyfriend is 29. We have an 8 year old together. I've done this same song and dance with him since i found out i was pregnant. He's a sweet guy, but he isnt motivated to want to do better. I've held two full time jobs, I've gone to school. I'm always the bread winner. I want more for our child. So work and our child is my life. I can't get this guy to get a drivers license, a car or a decent job. He usually works part time or goes maybe a couple years without employment. He is working full time now, but is bad with money. He'll hurry and spend it as soon as he gets paid, but looks at me when it's rent time or when the electric bill comes in. I pay all the major bills..even groceries and the babysitter.. he'll pay the cable and phone..but that's it. I've tried talking to him about this, but he says i make a lot more than him. I bring in $2000 a month, he brings in $1000 a month or less..but he never contributes and he has me driving him everywhere! He'll cook when I get off from work, but that's not enough. I'm just about done this time surely. I've tried dumping him and putting him out, but he calls me telling me he's on the streets starving with no place to go. So i feel bad and let him come back home. what am i doing wrong? why do I put up with this? I want my son to have a normal life! Please help!
