Boyfriend quit his job this morning to play more fortnite and become a professional yugioh card player
This is obviously going to put the brunt of the financial responsibility on me. He’s not willing to budge as he says working is too stressful and takes too much time out of his day away from Fortnite.
He wants to spend the time playing yugioh cards with his friends to ultimately play competitively and be the best in the world.
This clearly isn’t normal. Should I move on?
- Yes, yes you should. By all means he can follow his dream, but why are you financing it? Time to move along and find someone that isn’t using you.
- “I’m thrilled you are following your bliss. I too am going to follow my bliss, which is finding a responsible partner to share my life with. Which you are not. I wish you very well with your future endeavors.”
- Give him a dose of reality.
We all have dream jobs we wish we could have. But the bills still have to be paid while we work toward those goals.
Unless he is financially independent (meaning he has plenty of money in the bank to live off of indefinitely, while chasing his dream), then he needs to maintain a job and help with finances.
If he still refuses to see the light, send him packing back to his family. They can coddle him. That’s not your job and he’ll become a dead weight and financial burden you will absolutely resent! Especially since being able to get paid for doing those things is extremely difficult to break into and even when you do, it’s not a stable financial plan anyway.
