He Thinks His Girlfriend Needs To “Grow Up” And Start Pulling Her Weight Around The House Because He Feels Like He’s Living With A Teenager

This 30-year-old man has been living with his girlfriend, who is 30, for the past four months. But, ever since they’ve moved in together, he’s grown increasingly frustrated with his girlfriend and believes that she doesn’t really pull her weight around the house.

For some context, when it comes to finances, they basically split their essential bills equally. Then, since he earns more than his girlfriend, he “inevitably” pays more for their non-essentials – such as their Netflix subscription, takeout, and when they go out for drinks.

However, he claims that his girlfriend doesn’t drive, doesn’t work out, and never finished college. Plus, around the house, she doesn’t contribute to really any chores.

For instance, she rarely cooks or cleans the kitchen and avoids doing anything that involves physical labor or “gross smells.” His girlfriend is also a vegetarian and tends to be very picky about her meals.

So, since she doesn’t cook, she expects him to never cook with or eat meat whenever she’s home.

“And she can be very critical and belittling of things like my dress sense, appearance, and interests, even though I’ve said multiple times it’s something I’m self-conscious about,” he added.

He’s tried talking to his girlfriend about this, too, but every time he brings up her rude comments, she just says that she “can’t help it” and it’s how she “expresses love.” To him, though, this is bologna since she is constantly criticizing others but cannot take any criticism herself.

Still, his main issues with their relationship have to do with his girlfriend’s lack of contribution around the house.

“She has a crafting hobby which she binges for hours at a time at the expense of household duties,” he explained.
