    At what point did she say she wants him to provide for her? No one should be taking advantage of anyone else's financial status, regardless of gender. Don't turn this into a debate about feminism because that's not what this is; this is about a person who can't find the money to pay back large amounts that have been lent to him, but manages to find the money to go out and get drunk.
    It's also about women's treatment of men as a utility, a commodity to be disposed of, lets not talk in codes here. We all know when this fella is unable to finance the lifestyle she needs she will drop him like stone. I will not turn this into a feminist debate because I actually do not wish to comment much in this thread those were my thoughts and I know very well there will be people who do not agree with it, however, it is clear as daylight to me and the OP wrote it in black and white.

    Stop projecting.

    She needs to ditch him because he's a fool. Stop posting if you're going to go off on a tangent that's irrelevant and unnecessary, no one cares.

    This is not a tangent this is going off the information OP has clearly written, I am free to express my thoughts. One female commentator even called her boyfriend a sap , this is the abuse of men as a commodity to be thrown to the side once their use comes to an end. Do not tell me what I can and cannot write thank you.

    Georgiaswift is right about one thing communication is key, if this woman does not communicate with her boyfriend it will come to an end.

    You're aware that she's staying with a guy that she's putting up and considering paying for a holiday for him?
    If she wanted to use the guy for money she'd have been long gone by now.

    What you're complaining about is literally the opposite to what's happening here so I have no idea why you're even going on about it. Seems like a complex.

    Quote from anon OP
    '' Another thing he's recently lost his job so basically he's sponging off my income, we've got a 2.4k holiday booked, I've paid my half and he hasn't paid his, and with him having no income and only outgoing payments it's looking like I'm going to have to pay it which I totally don't mind,''

    If she's happy to pay she shouldn't complain and describe him as sponging off her. also it's disgusting the comments telling her to drop him this shows how people view men in this western culture. This is my last comment on this thread do not feel the need to quote me.

    I'm not the thread starter I think it must be because I posted the comment before the thread was approved, so it came out at the top :confused:
    That's it. It reads really strange with you at the top. People will get confused thinking it's about you :lol:.

    You're a mod, can't you reverse it? Or better yet delete your post and repost it again?

    She should drop him, because he's walking all over her and treating her like crap? If someone's being treated poorly by their significant other then they should drop them, regardless of gender.

    And as she said - she's not happy to pay for it if he's just going out and throwing away money on getting smashed.

    I can't delete the post without deleting the entire thread. So I've just put an edit in explaining that I'm not the OP. Still trying to get the hang of this moderating thing 😂

    Sounds like a knob, tell him to meet you when you get the plane and just hand him a children's book on growing up and get on the plane by yourself.
