ashley001 Posted October 5, 2011 Share Posted October 5, 2011 Part of me feels like breaking down into tears and the other part of me feels like strangling someone to death... *sigh* My boyfriend and I have been together for 6 months--he's 21, I just turned 20. In a nutshell--I have a job, he doesn't. Thus, he can't afford to take me anywhere, we haven't been on a date in over a month...he can't even pay for an ice cream cone for me. Not saying I want him to pay for everything, but unless I pay--we don't go out! He literally has zero money. Last Saturday was my birthday, my family is big on tradition when it's one of our birthdays--my parents, my sister, and I go out to buffet brunch, spend the day at the beach, etc. My boyfriend knew that, but I invited him to dinner. He shows up at my house at 7pm, hugs me and kisses me and says, "Happy Birthday!" He then proceeds to say, "SO I had a surprise for you, but you kinda ruined it." I'm thinking...how is that possible? He says he was going to make my favorite pancakes for me the morning before my birthday (Friday morning) since neither of us have class on Friday. I then remember a conversation we had Thursday night around 1am, he asked me what I was doing in the morning. I had already made plans with friends. THAT WAS HIS LOGIC FOR ME RUINING HIS 'SURPRISE'. I just want to enjoy dinner so I shrug it off and dinner with my family and him was great! After dinner we come back home and he still has given me nothing. since Saturday I've been waiting for him to do something! Anything! I'm not asking for a diamond ring...not even anything expensive...but would a homemade card have been SO hard? Making me breakfast on Sunday, Monday, or today?? He did NOTHING out of the ordinary to make me feel special. He didn't even save like $10 to buy me flowers or anything. He lives with his dad and money is tight so part of me feels bad for being upset with him, but I know he's spent money on fast food, etc. here and there recently. I don't know what to think... Is it possible to end a relationship because of a lack of money? I need advice, anything... Link to comment
