Ecc94454 Posted August 15, 2017 Share Posted August 15, 2017 My boyfriend and I broke up a month ago. We also lived together so he moved out a month ago as well. We broke up not because I hurt him or he hurt me. I broke up with him because he needed to take some time to become more financially secure. I don't care about how much money he makes, but I was tired of being the more financially responsible one. He doesn't owe me any money it's nothing like that. We are both in our late 20s and I felt like because of the situation with their finances we were on two different paths. After a few weeks we both met up and decided that we would work on ourselves but continue to live separately. So now that we're trying to work things out I am having an issue with his friends and family not approving of our decision. I understand that I hurt him and I'm the one that ended things, but it's still frustrating to feel like I have to defend myself to his family and friends. I didn't break up with him because he was a bad person or I didn't love him I just wanted him to mature. I feel that in the next six months or so he'll be in a much better place and we can talk about living together again. That's what we have discussed so far. I'm just unsure how to handle the situation with his family and friends. I'm trying to be considerate of the fact that they're only trying to look out for him but I feel like he's allowing their opinions to influence him a little too much. Any advice on the situation would be appreciative. Again I am wanting to work things out, I'm just unsure of what to do with his friends disliking me. Link to comment
