Deeplydepressed Posted June 21, 2008 Share Posted June 21, 2008 I have been dating my current boyfriend for a little under a year now. We get along fine. He is honest and trustworthy. And most days we can laugh together. He states that he would love to marry me (which is fine), but he doesn't have the funds(understandable). My only issues (if it's even a valid issue) is that he doesn't have a job and his job search. When I meet him online it stated that he did have a job, but really it was just a freelance project. When the project was over so was his job. And he hasn't been working since I have met him. He basically lives off funding from his mother (who is not rich), while he looks for work in the design field. He does work three days a week at an unpaid internship. This means I have had to pay for 98 percent of our dates. I wouldn't mind supporting him, but I have quite a bit of medical debt myself and I am attempting to pay for my college education and work too so I cannot support him too. My question is "How do I bring this up?" I have mentioned to him that he should perhaps get a job just to provide while he searches for work in his chosen field. I try to be patient and understanding, but its very hard when I am working overtime and he is at home getting ready to go on another long bike ride. My family wonders why I never have money for myself because they think he is working is they we should be fine. This is the beginning of our relationship and its already stressing me. What should I do? Link to comment
