…without the “wife” benefits.
Ugh. I am so tired of having to clean, cook and keep the house in order as a live-in girlfriend. Surely, these duties should have some sort of perk?!
This might be a long one ladies, but I need to vent. A lot of things are getting on my nerves currently and I know many of you may understand where I am coming from.
My boyfriend and I have been living together since July and, while he does do a lot for me, I am the one constantly stuck making meals doing laundry, vaccuming, dusting, cleaning the bathroom and cleaning up messes around the house. My boyfriend works very late nights (he bar tends from about 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.) and I work second shift. Now, he has nearly all day to do some of these chores. I am not asking him to do them all, but seriously when you can sit in front of the television all night messing around on the computer, you can sure as h*** figure out how to open the d*** dishwasher and put your dirty dishes in it!
I am really getting tired of coming home and having to clean up after not only him, but also his cousin, who is our temporary room mate. I am at the end of my rope!
Maybe, much like he is doing to me with the ring, I should make HIM wait for things like meals, a clean house and me for a change. Maybe I want to do things on MY TIME. See how much he enjoys being the one who has to sit around and wait.
I know all of these ideas are childish and I’m not saying thats what I am going to do, but really, when is the endless cycle of being a live-in girlfriend going to end? If I am going to do “playing house” things with him like this, then I want something to show for it. I want to be able to know for sure we are heading in a marriage direction.
Don’t get me wrong, we have talked about marriage multiple times and have even given thought to planning, and even though I know he has the ring, he has yet to propose and make that next step. I know just buying the ring is a big step, but lately I’m just thinking “WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR???”
Arghhhh, sorry ladies I am just super frustrated tonight. I worked another long shift and had to come home and pick up more dirty dishes >:(
And not being engaged and having to wait like this does not help the frustration at all!!!!
