Living with my boyfriend sucks
My boyfriend and I are in our early 20’s and we just moved in together a couple weeks ago. I have to ask him every single day to help me with chores even though we both work full time.
I do all the shopping without a car so I have to carry our groceries home using public transportation alone. Whenever I bring up anything, he’ll help once or twice and then never again until I get upset again.
I’m so tired all the time and I have no time for anything and when we get home he just sits on the couch on his phone but asking for every little thing is so tiring too.
Before he moved in he was usually at my place anyway and he wouldn’t help very much financially either even though he makes more money than me.
I’m just asking for advice on how to get him to respect me and help out more. I’ve told him multiple times, I’ve even broken down crying because I was just so tired and even then he told me to just tell him what to do and made me feel like it was my fault.
I don’t want to be his mom and give him chores but he just doesn’t notice anything and he won’t clean up after himself.
Should I even bother anymore or just call it quits? I don’t want to clean and cook after two people when I have to stand and lift at work all day. I’m physically and mentally drained.
