His Girlfriend Was Bleeding Him Dry, He Cut Her off and Moved On

A guy recently took to Reddit to vent about his girlfriend. This is a situation many of us have found ourselves in and is an interesting tale.

An Unbalanced Relationship

The protagonist of our story, a 21-year-old male, has been going through a tough time with his girlfriend, who he claims is dragging him down. 

She’s a traditional housewife kind of girl who has a tendency to overspend on his limited income. She expects him to pay for everything, which he does, and she spends a lot of his hard-earned money on things that he perceives as useless.

She also doesn’t appreciate his hobbies, which she considers “nerdy,” and frequently complains about him wasting his money on things like expensive headphones.

Things took a turn for the worse when she moved in with him. He had a music studio that she thought was cool before moving in, but since she had insisted on moving in, she was now trying to turn the room into storage!

Despite the fact that he frequently takes her out to dinner, buys her things, and surprises her with gifts, she doesn’t seem to appreciate his efforts. The real problem, however, lies in her spending habits. 

She’s a Big Spender

She often hides purchases from him and throws away receipts in outside trash cans to conceal her spending. One such incident occurred when she went behind his back and used their credit card to buy a non-refundable $3000 English bulldog from Petland without consulting him! 

This was a massive blow to his savings, as he was saving up for a pair of Verum-1 headphones. He was trying to optimize his savings as much as he could every month to make payments and save, but her actions cut his savings in half.

As if this wasn’t bad enough, his girlfriend decided that the dog was too much work and left it in the kennel constantly! 

Our storyteller works full time and had to take on the responsibility of letting it out when he got home, walking it, and trying to train it despite its behavioral issues from being stuck in the kennel all the time. All this for a dog he didn’t even consent to purchase!

He eventually had to rehome the dog, which cost him another $750 to have it fostered by a reputable trainer in hopes of fixing its behavioral issues on top of his monthly payments for the dog! 

His conversation with the dog trainer, explaining how his girlfriend was treating the dog, is one of the most embarrassing conversations he’s gone through in his life.

Her Parents Passed the Buck

To make matters worse, her parents refused to help when he asked them for money for the dog stating that she was “your problem now.” 

This guy is at his wit’s end and is beginning to feel trapped. He’s trying to be compassionate and reasonable, but she’s not doing the same. 

As soon as she stepped foot in his home, she went from being lovely and sweet to a tyrant. He feels like she flipped a switch and is now controlling every aspect of his life, including his finances!

He’s asked his parents for advice, but they’ve been useless.

His mother has been telling him that the girl in the relationship does enough housework that they should share their money. When he tried to explain that they do share a bank account, but she’s controlling and spending everything he has, it fell on deaf ears, and he realized his mom was doing the same to his dad.

His father, on the other hand, asked him if she was attractive, and when he said yes, he told him to stick through it because of that!

He’s Cutting Her Off

After seeking advice on Reddit, he realized that he needed to take action against his gold-digger girlfriend! He locked his cards, changed all his passwords, and called off from work to go talk to his bank branch about his next steps.

The kicker to this tale? While waiting in line at the bank, his girlfriend called to complain about her debit card getting declined! This pushed him over the edge, and he explained that “I know what I have to do.”

It wasn’t going to be easy, but he knew it was the right thing to do. He couldn’t keep living in a situation where he felt trapped and powerless. He needed to take his life back. It’s time to say goodbye to his girlfriend and move on. 

His story is a reminder that sometimes, it’s necessary to take a difficult step in order to regain control of your life. 

It can be scary and overwhelming, but it’s worth it in the end. Sometimes, the people we love can drag us down without even realizing it. 

It’s important to set boundaries and stand up for ourselves, even if it means making tough choices. In the end, we’re the only ones who can truly control our own happiness and well-being.

What do you think about his story? Do you think he should bankroll his girlfriend, or should she contribute too?
