This is pretty silly but I want to get it out somewhere. I'm planning on moving in with my boyfriend in a couple months, and I really don't know how to deal with the financial situation. The truth is I'm frustrated at how much he wants to charge me for rent, because it just doesn't make sense. I know his last girlfriend lived with him for free, and his roommate after that only paid $400... he's asking me to pay $500 plus utilities. To top it all off, my room is an attic with no heat and it gets extremely hot in the summer / cold in the winter. It probably bothers me too because with my last boyfriend only charged me $200 a month sharing a room and it was $425 plus utilities for having my own room - and that was for a nice room that was actually in the house. In the area I live, you can rent a room plus shared use of a house for $300-400 easily. So basically I don't understand why he raised the price so much for me compared to the other people he lived with, and it just seems like a pretty high price anyway. But when he told me thats how much he expected from me, I didn't argue I just accepted it. And now I'm finding myself upset and slighted. How do I fix this problem before things start to fester and I wind up bitter? Is there some way I can see it in a different light? It would make sense to talk to him about it, but I think if I did he'd think that the only reason I wanted to move in with him was so I could get by with less bills. More than anything, its that I can't afford the rent at his house or anywhere else unless I manage to get a lot more hours at work than I'm getting, and I have such a problem working with my bipolar/bpd/ptsd/social anxiety/lyme disease/scoliosis UGH that I want to kill myself just because of work itself. I feel like I'm just not able to get by in life, because I can't afford it and I can't handle the stress of working through it, and lets face it, there's really no help out there.... so I don't have much choice but to die. I guess I just wish he would help me out a little. Or that it didn't seem so unfair, like why did he favor his last girlfriend and his friend that lived with him after that? UGH help!
