I’ve been in a relationship with my boyfriend for four years now and things were going great until recently.
He recently told me that he wanted to take up a new job at Sims Ave, which is quite close to Geylang. For those who don’t know, Geylang is an area in Singapore that’s well known for its nightlife and prostitution. Needless to say, I was not too happy about the idea of my boyfriend working there and I wasn’t shy about expressing my disapproval.
At first, I thought he was joking but it turns out that he was serious.
He said that the job was a great opportunity and he couldn’t pass up on it. I had to remind him that the area was dangerous and he could easily get into trouble if he’s not careful. I also reminded him that it was not a good idea for him to be around such an environment as there are many activities that are illegal in Singapore.
My boyfriend was quite taken aback by my reaction and he asked why I was so against the idea. I had to explain to him that it was not just the danger of working in such an area, but also the fact that it was not a good place for him to be around. The last thing I wanted was for him to be influenced by the activities going on in the area, or even worse, get involved in any of it.
I made it clear to him that I did not want him to take up the job. However, he was quite insistent that this was a great opportunity and he could not pass it up. I had to remind him that there were plenty of other job opportunities out there and that he should look for something else.
Eventually, after a lot of convincing, he agreed to not take up the job and look for something else.
But he ended up still working there thinking I won’t find out, he told me to feed him and give him an allowance if I don’t want him work there.
He said he can quit but I must pay him $5,000 a month + CPF contribution.
He said that I was thinking too much saying he work there does not mean he will go find the chicken there.
What should I do? Should I just close one eye?
