Im annoyed this morning ...very annoyed. My boyfriend asked to go to the movies so i said fine ill meet you there .When we went to the movies before he took me out for lunch afterwards . The time before that he just paid for the ticket and bought himself a snack and bought me nothing.
This time i show up...he has the ticket. ( matinee ticket so it was only 8 dollars) I walk to the refreshment stand and he walked to the esculator and waited for me not offering to buy me anything. I tell myself well fine he probaly is going to take me to lunch afterwards . Did he? NOPE. He did not . After the movie he says oh let me walk you back to the train station. We passed a mcdonalds he didnt even offer to take me there. So i was annoyed and it showed on my face and my attitude.
Now my mom's words are ringing in my ear. I always talk about atlantic city and how much i love it . He had never been to atlantic city but always talks about Vegas. He never been there eithier. Were way closer to atlantic city . So a few weeks ago he tells me oh for valentine's day we can go to atlantic city . I said hmm okay fine . I went and booked the hotel room for two nights at a nice casino resort ( total was only $115.00 because its a weekday) He didnt offer to put any money towards it ...
So were on the phone the other day and i told him i hope you have money for this trip and he told me he thought i was paying for everything. ( WHAT?! WHY IN THE HELL WOULD I PAY FOR THE WHOLE TRIP?!) He thought i was paying for his food/entertainment and everything as well as the hotel room. I told him im only paying for the hotel room .
My mom is livid . She yelled at me and said he's the man he should be paying for EVERYTHING and i told her he doesnt have alot of money and they cut his days at work he's working maybe twice a week (and yes he is busting his ass looking for another job) . I know he doesnt have alot of money .
Initally i had no problem paying for the hotel because usually when he does take me on a date ( every payday so every two weeks) he pays for the date and i never pay for anything . He's taken me and my two kids to dave and busters and dinner afterwards and he took us to a bbq restaurant a couple of weeks ago . He also buys me things all the time like flowers/chocolates/teddy bears just to surprise me so its not like he's really taking advantage.
Now my mom is harping on me to get him to pay for this atlantic city trip but i know he doesnt have alot of money . I know how severely his days were cut and i saw his mom bitching at him in his text messages because she wants more money from him as well. I dont really want to ask him to pay for this trip.
I was going to pay for the hotel and we were going to each buy our own food etc but my mom is telling me he's taking advantage and a man supposed to be a man and provide. I was going to buy him an alcoholic drink at the pool bar as well and order room service for breakfast one day just so he can have the experience (he's really never been anywhere nice before )
