He is using you. This is not normal. You know this.

Those who love you won’t take advantage of you or repeatedly lie to you. Don’t give him any more money.

Text him to ask exactly when he plans paying you.back. Name the sum and the occasions that you have lent the money. Make it clear that each time it was a loan. Get him to text you an exact payback date. His reply may well give you evidence should you wish to pursue him through the courts at a later date.

Rescuing someone who continues to make poor choices is not called love. It’s called enabling. Stop enabling, and refuse to be a safety net, so he can grow up!!

Just read Collegebee’s post over and over. It’s worded perfectly. I’m sorry OP, but the boy’s gotta go! Good luck.

The biggest problem here is not the money but the manipulation. If he were lying about his own finances, I would tell you to break this off. That’s a huge sign of immaturity and likely to cause problems in a marriage down the road. But he’s lying to get you to give him money which is worse. Try to get your money back but most likely that’s gone forever and then drop him.

Issues with money hardly ever work out well. My best friend’s husband was terrible with money when they were dating – his car got repossessed twice and he would buy expensive toys (gaming software, computers, guns) and pretend he won them or got the money somewhere. For them it worked out but only because she took 100% control of the finances when they got married. She monitors all his spending and works out budgets for him. BUT he never manipulated her for money and that’s the big difference.

eve2018 :  I was in a relationship like this before I started dating my finance. The person will never change, and you cannot change them, you need to have a serious conversation now to address this, or it will just get worse. 

Also, keep your accounts separate, you always need you money, even in the most open and trusting relationships.
