Seriously. I’m giving you permission to tell me I’m being ridiculous, so fire away.
My SO just moved in with me, and so far we are having a great time. It’s only been 3 days, but I’m optimistic..haha
Anyway, we both get up around 7am and we both leave at 8:15ish every morning. He goes off the school, and I go off to work. We don’t have an obscene amount of time together in the morning, but I still feel like it would be enough to have a nice breakfast together if we manage to get out of bed on time.
Here’s the thing that irks me:
Even before he moved in with me, he would go to a diner in the morning on his way to school for breakfast. Now that we’re living together, I asked him why he still does this and here are the reasons he has given me:
-We don’t have enough time
-He likes the food
-My apartment doesn’t have a table to eat at and he doesn’t want to make a mess.
He goes to one of three places every morning, and one of the diners he goes to has a waitress working there who he went on a couple dates with. They were friends at school and apparently went on a couple dates years ago, but he decided they’d be better as friends. It’s ridiculous, I know, but it really bothers. I hate when he comes home and tells me he went there for breakfast and she was working. I’ve told him it bothers me, but he tells me that he just goes for the food, and when he does see her there, he just talks about me the whole time, and I believe him. I know nothing is going on, but what’s wrong with staying home and having breakfast with me?
He’s also the one who’s constantly talking about how he needs to save money, and yet he’s going out to eat every morning when he could stay home and not spend a dime. I know years from now when I making breakfast for him and our kids every morning, I’ll wish he’d go to a diner, but it’s not the diner aspect as much as the waitress. I’ve always been a very jealous person by nature so I guess this is just my own thing that I have to work through.
