It’s probably changeable, but unfortunately not by you. If he wants to at all, maybe he can if he’s willing to put in the work. If this comes natural to him it’s probably his normal, the way he was raised or for some reason or other he feels entitled, who knows really. There’s many different kinds of people in the world. Why does your $$ come up so often?

Yes i have a few comments. If you truly find this repulsive, the rest of his it(he’s nice and blah blah blah) wouldn’t be enough to keep him around(at least not as a bf). He treats you this way because for him, it’s normal. From what i read he’s not directly asking you for $$ nor is he using it as a requirement(staying only if you’ll dish it out). When he asks you to pay and he has the $$, just say no….he’ll have to break that bill eventually. If you already feel this way i don’t get why you’re offering to pay for his stuff(train ticket)…you’re putting yourself in that situation. The thing about giving is you should do it freely and with no condition, otherwise it’s not worth giving. Trying to control how others react in general is impossible and you’ll only be disappointed. Sounds like he’s taking everything you’re willing to give and even while you complain you continue.

2013-11-18 07:04:25 on CHRISTMAS HELP NEEDED FOR 3 CHILDREN!
Xmas isn’t about gifts. Instead of sitting down to open anything this xmas why not do a family activity instead. Go for a walk around your neighborhood perhaps to look at the xmas decorations, attend a church service(which often have special going-ons due to the holiday and it’s open to everyone), look up free events around your neighborhood, etc. Yes, it’s sad that kids in general are forced to live the life their parents provide, yet you guys seem to be providing for all necessities regardless of your financial situation which is much more than some could do. That’s definitely something to be thankful for! Idk how old your kids are but if they’re old enough they could reasonably understand the situation, just have to word it in certain way.
2013-11-18 06:51:42 on What do you think about this?
Hm i guess i’d agree with that. I’m considered rich i guess, does that mean i should give $$ away to the poor? Would i automatically have to do that when i make an x amount of dollars, and if so, why? I have no idea if most ‘rich’ people don’t care about creating something ‘new’(?), but most people being content/settled with that they have sounds about right which may limit some to try and better themselves financially. A lot of this rich folks are rich ’cause they’ve worked for it.

great, hopefully you can run with it.

Hm, so she asks nothing at all or does she mirror your questions(when you ask she replies with the same)? I do that, all tho i’m not japanese. If she’s not asking anything at all i would take that as not being interested enough to want to know more about you and just too nice to ask you to stop yapping.

At the least she’ll learn never to show her face again! Lol… :\
2013-11-15 13:48:51 on Silly girl!
Hm, i guess i agree with most that’s been said. It can’t be undone, have to suffer the consequences. Why is she worried about herself again, is she scared he’ll post her naughty pics up somewhere or what? Let her have that anxiety attach, maybe she’ll have a chance to reflect if this was really worth it or not.
2013-11-15 13:41:59 on What do you think about this?
The ‘rich’ and the ‘poor’ do lead different lives, yet what is ‘rich’ and what is ‘poor’? My parents did not pay for my schooling(college), yet i had an iphone and i made more than i needed(could save something every month), where would i fit in? I see what you’re saying, it may not feel fair at times yet no one can choose what they were born into. The biggest challenge is getting yourself to where you want to be, and if you just happen to be rich ’cause your parents are, then how lucky are you! If you want to do something nothing is stopping you, regardless of your financial situation. There’s always ways to make money(if you consider having no $$ as a reason not to reach your goals that just reflects on your(lack of) drive imo). You say no one cares about the poor….who is it that doesn’t care?
2013-11-15 13:21:00 on this is frustrating.
that’s not being hopeless, that’s you practicing self control. if you can’t control yourself, then leave and tell him over the phone or leave a note, end of story. if nothing changes this is helping no one.
2013-11-15 11:42:36 on this is frustrating.
You are not his mother, nor is it your job to ‘take care’ of him. If that’s the only reason you’re staying then you’re doing neither of you a favor. If he’s clueless about so many things and you love him no longer(i assume you loved him at some point) then feel free to be honest and let him live his poor lost life on his own. He will manage, it’s not the end of the world, he will move on. He’s a capable human being that will learn how to do what’s necessary even if he has to hit rock bottom first…if he’s spoon fed everything, he will never learn. Playing mother isn’t cute when dealing with adults.
2013-11-15 11:32:08 on What do you think about this?
I don’t know if it’s ‘almost every time’(unless you feel everyone else but you is the wrong person to have the $$ lol). I guess it also depends if you’re referring to a specific group, what you mean by the ‘wrong’ people and that sort’a thing. Sometimes ppl do things in order to get $$ which other people wouldn’t or don’t do. Sometimes ppl have(or work to have) more chances than others to advance in certain ways which will allow them to obtain more $$. Some people who have it all sometimes loose it to others for some reason or other, and those who gained it may have had nothing to begin with or simply add to their pile. May have more later lol… :)
2013-11-15 08:56:17 on i have never played guitar but,
Hm, i guess you might as well memorize the words for a song of your choosing and strum randomly when it sounds right….or pick another bday present. It’s the gesture that counts! :)

That’s pretty sad but hey, maybe they deserve each other. Idk if they will try to come hurt you, but no one should be threatening you like that. Have her info? Call the cops.
