@stella_baby:  What kinds of jobs is he applying to?  He needs to get a job, as soon as possible, in whatever field comes along.  What did he go to college for?

It sounds like a lot of stress on you. Can you take a few minutes out of each day to do something for you (savor a glass of wine, paint your nails, etc) to give yourself a few moments to breathe?

Offer him help work on his resume and suggest he hit the library or local job connect daily to apply for jobs online. Can you maybe get him a pay-as-you-go cellphone just for job searching? It’s hard to find a job without the basic tools and providing him with them takes away any excuses he may have.

I don’t know about you but that is UNACCEPTABLE. Is he handicapped?  When me and Darling Husband first got together he worked for family roofing.  Maybe he would work one day and maybe he wouldn’t.  Not a steady flow of money.  I got the newspaper, looked at the first ad which was a Taxi Cab company.  I told him we were driving over there the next day and voila!  He had a job.  It’s not that hard.  You do what you have to do, not what you like.  I do not like my job.  I do it because I have to and that is that!  Bills need to be paid and YOU should not be taking care of him by any means unless he is sick. 


There is work for the willing.  There are work today get paid today places.  Even a minimum wage job is better than nothing.


I know you can do this, encourage him to go out and be the MAN he should be.
