@cali_cat:  I do the same thing.  My SO doesn’t understand that my job is different from his so I NEED to plan things ahead of time.  Also, anytime he spends a huge amount of money, there’s this voice in the back of my head saying “umm hello.. we need to save for an engagment ring!  remember a year ago when you told me that you wanted to get engaged but didn’t have anything saved.. yeah what are we doing here”.  Doesn’t seem to factor into my SO’s thinking either.  Hopefully things get better!  I’m starting to think I may have to lay down the “give me a timeline idea-wise” line here soon. I don’t want to force him into anything, but I am driving myself CRAZY here.   Good luck to you!!!!  I hope it works out soon!!!!

Yeah, this is so frustrating! I can completely understand where you are coming from. I started my current job about a year ago and I have 2 weeks saved up, but I don’t want to completely cash out my vacation time when we get married next year. He tells me I should take off a day here and there, but I just smile and tell him I’m hoarding my vacation for a very important and well-deserved vacation next year. I think he knows what I’m talking about but I can’t be certain!

I can also relate on the money part of it. My dear SO is fantastic, but saving money is not his best trait. He buys food and beer without really budgeting and in my head I’m screaming “How can you say you are saving up money when you keep buying all this random crap you don’t really have to have!!” If he buys anything big this summer, I’m going to be forced to say something. I’ve been good so far about keeping my mouth shut. But it’s hard!!
