Time to move on

August 2nd, 2015 at 05:46 pm

Okie dokie we are back from PA. We had my BF family reunion and of course I ended up spending money I should not have.

I asked the BF to move out. Prior to us going on this trip he still owed $120.00 for the airfare, now he owes me $200+ for cable, $75 for luggage and $281 for the rental car. I told him prior to going that I did not want to be responsible for anything concerning this trip. I foot the bill for the Derby because that was something that I always wanted to do, this was his trip. He wants to talk things out, but I'm done, financially, we are not on the same page, and I am tired.

On a different note I am tackling CC4, I caught the devil trying to set up automatic payments of $10 per week but I was able to do it.

I've managed to bump my IRA to $396.71, and still able to add $15 a week to that. Not to mention I signed up for the company's 401(k) at 3% that averages about $33 per pay period.

I was also able to bump my $20/52 Week challenge to $2211.30; I would love to hit the 5k mark by December, but it doesn't look like it unless I get a job paying more.

Lastly, I have been on two interviews with the same company and will be going in for my third on Wednesday. I am pretty confident that I have the job, but I won't post anything until I receive my offer letter.

That's in in a nutshell

    There has been a lot going on in your life. Amber, as tough as it must have been, it sounds like you made the best decision regarding the BF. Or is it ex-BF now?

    That's really good news about the 401K. Do you get a company match?

    Hang in there!

    SCFR Thabks so much for your support. The BF and I aren't quite exes yet. As I explain to him, I think it's best we live separately, that he needs to show me that he can do things on his own, then if it's meant to be then it will be. Honestly I'm tired if dating.

    Unfortunately, the company that I work for does not match.

    I think you are making the right decision, Amber. It is hard to connect with someone who is not on the same money page as you are. (I could never do it)

    I think that sounds like a wise decision. I am guessing he is unlikely to change. Being single sounds pretty good, in comparison.

    It's hard to make that decision, but it sounds like you were at a point where you just couldn't keep going with the status quo. Good for you letting him know where you stand.

    I too add my voice to the others to support your decision. Different viewpoints on money issues is a really big red flag. It's tough enough to deal with all the challenges life throws without starting bad on the biggest cause of breakups. I can't remember if you got your new haircut, but start fresh, new ideas, new plan, sweep out the old and make space for the new!

    Sure hope the guy will pull up his big boy pants and pony up for cable, airfare, car rental , luggage etc. PDQ as he said he would.

    If he truly can't be without you he will learn to pay his fair share, and I hope he does. Good luck to the both of you
