    so be very careful about setting up housekeeping with somebody else

    same goes for renting property to somebody or even giving them permission to stay at your property for any length of time
    This is so true. Don't be pushed into anything you don't want.

    You just have to be stronger than he is stubborn... its hard, but lean on your friends here and at home ! I have been there done that and it is no fun, especially if you try not hurting their feelings, but they don't seem to care about our. Its never easy , someone always gets hurt, no matter what

    Your a very sweet, warm, kind gal kiddo and don't let him or anyone use you. If your not happy about this guy, then he's not the one for you. I'd break it off then ignore all calls, texts etc. from him. He'll get the idea. Not sure on the text, but can you put him on ignore?

    whoa! he sure cooled his heels, when you said no.
    He actually put it out there, when he said, "HE" couldn't live alone on s.s. in future!
    I don't blame you for how you feel.
    I'd just let the whole thing drift right on down stream. I would't settle, for somebody wanting to scarf up my retirement either.
    My mom has had these kinds of boyfriends, and they develop health problems, and then their kids are no where around, but they get the inheritance, if there is one.
    Nope, sounds like a sponge-job, to me...that's sponge0bob, when he gets older, lol! :wink:
    tain't funny though. These types, can really soak up, your hard earned dollars, and be a burden. You were smart not to marry. He may have even been hoping, you'd kick the bucket first.

    I can't be mean because I'm too nice. Not in a doormat way (anymore) but in a Planet Happiness way. I hear it all the time and don't like it too much.

    First seemingly nice guy to pay attention to me, dote on me, want to be with me, but he's too inconsistent and changes his mind to what I say, so, I feel I can't trust him. He's a nice guy, fun to be around and smart, but just not the guy I want to relationship-commit to, because of his inconsistencies.

    I don't want to do things for the wrong reasons anymore and don't want to hurt people, but sometimes I wonder what the heck is wrong with me.
    take it from another too-nice person...he is doing all those NICE things, bc he is playing you. Not saying he doesn't have any real feelings, but it is sure convenient that you have all the 'things' he wants.
    It sounds one sided, but hidden under a veil of niceness.
    It would change dramatically with a move-in or marriage.
    If he could move-in and get you to a financial place where you feel that you 'need' him to make it...he would be riding the gravy train. He already lives with ppl to make it, and looking for his next one.
    You don't have to be mean...you sound like me...it would bother you too much,...and you do work with him. I would just let-it-go!
    If he persists, tell him up front and forthright...NO!
    Thought about it, from all angles...your a nice guy, and deserve someone that wants all the same things you do...so NO THANK YOU!

    We talked and I told him it really wasn't going anywhere because we don't want the same things, don't have the same future plan, and really don't have too much of the same interests, and I feel it would be better to be friends rather than a couple.

    He proceeded to tell me how he felt and what I said and what we decided and that he didn't understand. (He does understand it just isn't what he wants to hear so he keeps saying that to keep the conversation going.)

    I asked why is it always about him, he said it isn't, I said -he said- I said- he said...Fine, whatever you want, fine, he says. I then asked 'you will not let me go, will you?' 'Not as a friend', he says. I didn't like that too much. I say I have to hang up. Fine. He sends me a text - You made me very upset. Sorry our dating didn't work for you, I'll try to be a better friend. I will always love you.

    This is (usually) my cue to call him and say, no, it isn't that, it's just...

    But instead, I went and dug in the dirt for 3 hours then took my son out to an early dinner.

    Much nicer.

    Now I'll go read what you all posted. Thanks, by the way. It really helps to know I can come here and talk to you all, that we all can.
    Butterfli...I had a girlfriend that sound EXACTLY, just about word for word, the way he talks...this kind of personality, is selfish! controlling! manipulative! and a blood sucker!...oh, they can turn on the charm, big time, when they need to...to get what they want....but I will always love you....love your home, your warm body...your food, lights, tv, couch, money, comfort, convenience...etc. etc. etc.
    nobody is that loving and nice all the time. AFTER, his real self will come out.
    Good for you, that you got up and went out with another man!!! lol!
    I bet he is the best one in your life!
    too many other fishes in the sea...and if not...trust me, I have seen it...your better off, with your own space, time and money. you will not like yourself, if you get into something that drains you.
    I think you are on the right track, and we are probably all repeating all the stuff, you have already figured out. Just want to give you a big thumbs up :thumbup:
