    I think the REAL question here is: Why AREN'T you looking for a job?

    I personally can see where he's coming from. I think when I'm around unambitious people who laze around the house all day, not doing anything with their life and living off their parent(s), then that because annoying and off-putting. I wouldn't want to be around someone who has a lack of enthusiasm for work, ambition and pride.

    For me personally, if I was dating someone, and their sibiling just cgaf about life and jobs, then that would be such a total embarrassment to know your dating someone who has a sibling that is a bum.

    You're probably just killing his vibe aaand probably the fact they you're always home and they need space could have something to do with it.
    Also as I said earlier they don't live with me also I do look for jobs.

    Some people just like getting involved and sticking their nose where it doesn't belong.

    My boyfriend's sister once gave a long, shouty rant about how I was too young for him and in a few years I would get bored and leave him for someone younger, blah, blah, blah.

    The real reason she was upset, is that her own relationship is totally stagnant and her boyfriend of 8+ years doesn't want to marry her or have children. We don't say anything about her relationship, but she thought she had the right to have a go at my boyfriend about ours.

    There is a risk that if you talk to him yourself, then you're sister will be annoyed at you being rude to him, so I think that the best thing for you to do is to tell your sister that you don't appreciate him having a go at you and ask her to make him back off.

    I agree.

    My parents' "middle class" friends, a lot of whom had been to uni but were in jobs they hated, used to have a go at me for not going and getting a job instead despite having good A levels.

    Maybe he is insecure
