So there’s this social group that I’m in on Facebook. Mostly locals and singles and what not. And there is this particular meme(pic below) that floats around pretty often and the comments always go over 300+. Then eventually, it spawns spin off posts about gold digging women or cheap ass men. Now before I share my thoughts on this I will give you a quick summary of my background. I am a single mom, never been married and only lived with a man once. I do not receive any assistance, such as food or cash benefits or child support. Now being a single parent, for me the next time I try cohabitation with a man it will be a relationship that is on the way to the next level, a committed domestic partnership. Hey call it a play on words but I think it’s more of a mindset. I am not moving in with just a “boyfriend”.
With all that being said, my guy, my man, my boyfriend, my life partner, my fiance’, my husband, the provider will pay $1550 and I will take care of the rest. I cannot fathom going in half. Especially when I cover all that by myself now. So basically we roommates. And the kicker is that I may spend more in groceries, toiletries and decor and what not but it’s just the principle of it. I don’t need you to go half…take the lead and provide.
How do you feel about this?
