His boss at former job “didn’t appreciate him”
His family loves the girlfriend but the girlfriend's family/friends hate him.
Also, when she threatens to break up with him he talks about the business he's trying to start (something vague but believable enough) or how he's going to enroll in community college classes for the next term (specific area of study unclear).
You forgot playing the guitar and eventually getting kicked out and ending up living in a nearby pit.
This was about a 3rd of the girls in my community college bio class. It was part of a program to get some certificate that would allow for advancement in the medical assistant field, so half the positions were reserved for nursing students.
-She works, but still does all the chores at home. Their home is messy. They rely on convenience foods and takeout because he doesn't cook and she doesn't have time.
-Because of this diet she has gained a few pounds and doesn't have a lot of free time to exercise or meet other people. So, she doesn't dump him because she doesn't think she could find anyone else. Also he 'can be really sweet sometimes'.
-He may not be a drug dealer but he hangs out with drug dealers and has a low key coke habit. Plays an FPS that's a few years old but still has a following.
-He gets caught up in MLMs easily. Has had his information stolen by applying to shady gigs on Craigslist.
-Every few months he'll get some temp sales gig, pay one bill, and blow all the rest of the money on dumb toys.
-He will be selling you mini-drones in the mall around christmas.
-He 'Was going to' take out the trash/load the dishwasher/do the dishes
-'Babe do you have money for smokes?'
-The same caring nature that brought her to the medical field is preventing her from leaving him
-She arrives late because he went out last night and didn't bring back her car in time for her to get to work
-Calls patients 'hon' without any intention of being snotty
Lol you guys gonna have a bunch of dudes homeless by the end of this thread
You're missing the Xbox / gaming PC. Overflowing ashtray with perched roach and the steampunk kazoo vape. She has a "scrunchy" on at all times and a coffee mug that could possibly pass as a coffee pot by volume
You forgot the dog filter selfie every single day and motivational quotes with “fuck” somehow shoehorned into them.
I knew someone exactly like. He cheated on his girlfriend with any girl willing and threw parties. Supposedly he stopped cheating, works, but still parties and spends lots of money on booze.
Is this that common? Like I know a family like this but I thought that was just like 1 sad story not a trend.
He's kind of a dick who's really good at convincing himself (and others) that his shortcomings aren't his fault and should be overlooked. She went for a two year degree or some sort of certification that has a decent starting salary but no real room for growth. Alternatively she could be a dental assistant, hair stylist, or receptionist. Their relationship is bad (not awful, but should have ended a long time ago), but they've been together a long time (probably high school) and are codependent on each other. Am I correct?
Edit because I forgot a key element of why she stays with him: She was probably pretty good looking when she was younger but she's let herself go (a lot of it due to the stress). She's aware she's not as attractive (and he probably brings it up sometimes) and it drives her fear that if she leaves him she won't be able to find anyone else.
Damn this is so true.
My mother who worked in the medical field had a boyfriend like this.
Every time she gets a little bit of sense and threatens to leave him, he cries and threatens to kill himself. She falls for it and ends up staying and supporting him because she feels sorry for him and she doesn’t want to be alone.
They never travel or do anything fun. He plays video games all day and ignores her while she scrolls through Facebook and sees all the fun her high school friends are having. They’re all successful and have successful boyfriends. They’re getting married and having babies.
She posts an obscene amount of couple pictures on her Facebook in the hopes that everyone thinks she’s happy.
The most exciting part of her week is when they go out to Buffalo Wild Wings. She drives them there and pays the whole bill.
