My boyfriend in Meta got layoff.
I was promised a great future with him when he secured a job at Meta at SV. We were in talks about whether I should join him in California and live the American dream.
However, all of this came to a halt when he phoned me last night saying that he’s one of the 11% that got laid off. A part of me died. He told me that he’ll look for another job in the states so that we can resume our plan.
Given the current economy, I doubt that is possible and I suggested him to return to SG which he outright refuses. He claimed that SG is not as prestigious as SV in terms of tech which I beg to differ as beggars can’t be chooser. I’m at my wits end now and I’m unsure of what to do.
He’s childish and immature. The only things he loves to talk about is tech stuff which I find unromantic and boring. He stan Muck Zuckerberg & the meta-verse so much that I find him delusional. I am contemplating on moving on from this relationship and finding someone who’s more realistic.
Call me a good digger if you want but I can no longer see how the relationship can survive just like how I’m misled by him into thinking that terra luna would survive.
Here are what netizens think:
- Yes for goodness sake, please leave him. He doesnt need a partner who gives him a kick when he is already in the rut. So when he was still employed, the tech talk was not unromantic? Now that he is unemployed, it became unbearable that you have to make a run for it? Then please do. Spare this poor boy and please do not look back because he is certainly going to find someone better for him out there. Someone who will support him during his downs.
- If you can’t accept someone at their worst, you don’t deserve them at their best. Girl, don’t depend on someone else for your own future and happiness. You will be sorely disappointed no matter who you are with.
- Looks like him losing his job is his loss and losing you is his gain. You shouldn’t leave him at this critical moment when he needs support the most. Eat, drink and be merry who donno how to do together …like most ppl have commented , you don’t deserve him at his best (when he recovers) and by the way you”ll also have your turn to be down and your share of bad luck in life too. The only thing that kept you there was “his job and the future he promised you “what about love and commitment? Sad case. Change face like weather change , so fast.
- Apparently you’re not able to understand his language. Sticking to him will only bring unhappiness to both of you in the long term. So for your peace & also his, please RUN.
