    He’s not acting this way because he’s not used to a strong woman, he’s acting this way because you’re allowing it. I would do whatever was necessary to get away from this guy. He’s a parasite.

    mochachic :  Holy shit! I’m really sorry you don’t have helpful family…but fuck that and fuck them. You deserve better. It is unbelievable they would advise you to stay! And um it can always be worse but that is SO not the point. Please save yourself and go live a happy life!

    Do you want a teenage son or a life partner?

    Cause what you have is a teenage son. Ship him off to military school and live your life, girl.

    mochachic :  I’ve read all your updates. I got to the part were he was borrowing your second car and not offering anything before I thought you should ditch him. Then it just got worse. Now you’re saying this guy is 43!! These are the actions of some douche straight out of high school that hasn’t learnt the value of work and relationships. Certainly not the actions of man who should have worked out a few of those things by now.

    Also, your support network is shit. The fact that you’re unhappy should be reason enough to go, let alone all the stuff he’s actually doing. As for the idea that you should only leave when he’s cheating or hitting you, that’s just beyond gross. I’m sorry you have no support because this makes what you need to do much harder. However, you need to be strong, ditch this guy and work on building a support network of great friends that will support you leaving a douche like this.

    “I stay because I’m hopeful he will wake up see what’s standing in front of him”

    In all kindness, you need to wake up and see what is standing in front of you.

    I only read the first few, before voting, then read the rest. Girl, what are you doing!? You’ve moved out multiple times, you KNOW he’s a financial mess and freeloader, and now he’s treating you like shit and you still want to be with this man? NO. Move out, and move past this piece of garbage for good. Don’t look back, he’s not worth it.

    mochachic :   “they say at least he’s not knocking you around.”

    What the actual…. No. Who says this?!? No one should ever say, “Well at least he’s not abusing you” to justify staying with a shitty guy! He doesn’t need to cheat or abuse you to be a pile of garbage. I would not go to these people for any further relationship advice.

    The good thing is you can look for jobs while he’s at work. Send out resumes, take the bus to different businesses and give them your resume. Don’t stop looking for employment.  Your situation sucks right now but you can help yourself. You can look for someone who needs a roommate, look at online ads seeking roommates/rent a room. You won’t need full rent x2 saved up for that. Your situation isn’t hopeless and you don’t have to live this way. But you have to help yourself.

    j9marie :  bingo!

    OP, look at this man. Just look. Observe. What does he actually bring to your life. What resources is he sharing (kindness, support, car, rent). 

    You’re doing it all. 

    If you have to psychoanalyze someone to explain away their behavior, they aren’t a good partner. his problem is not strong women, his problem is he’s a loser.

    Run and go to counseling for yourself.

    This is one of the worst relationships I have ever heard of. I think you need serious help if your brain is telling you that any part of this shitshow is acceptable. Good luck.

    You can do so much better! He is a jealous leech. Leave him, like yesterday.

    mochachic :  Lady, RUN as fast as you can. Guy is 43, hell no he will change. 

    My friend and ex-coworker, was involved into 7 year long toxic relashionship like that. The guy was sitting at home for 1,5 years looking for a job that fits his ego, while she was working and paying bills. She was even sending out resumes for him to help with job hunt. Meanwhile he was playing video games all day, and was going to bars with his looser friends and used money she made to buy them drinks. He was not treating her nicely.

    On top of everyhinng she learned that while she was at work, he cheated on her with her girlfriend. She finally had guts to leave him. 5 years later she got married to a nice guy, and her ex, as far as I know from our friends in common is still a looser living with his parents and finding himself. He turned 40 this year!
