He has two huskies that are his life and I feel like all I get are their little bits. I am 42 years old and he is 45 years old.
I work part-time in a womenswear store (he prefers me to babysit). When I went to buy food, he insisted I only buy discount food.
But when it comes to his dogs, I have to buy the best meat. It’s completely absurd.
He’ll hit the roof if I buy us steak.
He makes me feel bad if I buy any new clothes.
All issues receive a personal response, usually within 24 hours on weekdays.
When he’s not working, the dogs are his life – he trains them or walks them three or four hours a day.
I was left alone most of the time. I told him I was lonely but he said I have a good life and shouldn’t complain.
DEIDRE SAYS: It’s time to step back and figure out how much you’re getting out of this relationship.
You sound unhappy and everything seems to be going his way.
Do you really see your future with someone who puts their dogs in front of you?
Tell your boyfriend how miserable you are.
Ask him to compromise and if he doesn’t want to budge, you’ve got your answer.
I am sending you my support package to fix your broken heart, the support package will help you.
