My ex bf and I broke up a few months ago. I initiated the breakup and timed it to when we needed to give notice that we are not renewing our lease because I didn’t want it to be awkward but I was ready to break up for a while.
It’s nothing to do with him specifically but I just had enough of paying the bulk of everything. Initially, I convinced myself I would be ok with paying for most things because I was making the majority of the money but as time went on I had enough and decided I wanted someone to split things 50/50.
I knew he wouldn’t be able to be made near min wage and 50/50 would bankrupt him so I sucked it for a while.
Our relationship definitely suffered because if there was any expense I had to open my wallet. But since he can’t afford an apartment in Orchard we live even with roommates it really sucked to break up even though I knew what I wanted.
I have nothing against him personally but I didn’t feel like I was responsible for him anymore and ended the lease. He was angry because we both knew he didn’t have anywhere to go.
We got 60 days to find new accommodations and I went to live with a roommate but he could only couch surf and now he is homeless and I’m being scolded upon by my friends who think I’m heartless for leaving knowing he can’t afford a place.
