So about 3 years ago I met this guy on Craigslist. It was supposed to be just a one night stand but it turned into something a little bit more.
I’m 50. I haven’t had any kind of relationship in over 20 years. He was nice enough, we had some things in common, BUT I was NEVER sober with him. I just, as a depressed person with addiction issues, could not go there with him.
I broke it off with him once before with some lame excuse and it was not easy. Then I was trolling for sex one night (I’ll admit it) on Craigslist and responded to his ad. So we ended up back together.
The thing is we do have a lot in common (politics, religion, etc.) but the basic is that he’s a loser. Now, I’m no catch myself. Depression, alcohol issues, blah, blah. But this guy. He’s lived his life in one state. Has NO desire to travel. Has no desire to do anything but what he does. And what he does is go to yard/garage/estate sales on the weekends to purchase CDs that he sells on Ebay. He does not make a living doing this. His parents help him out. He’s older than I am. I, however, too, am currently living off my parents due to the depression. BUT I do not pay $200+ for cable TV. I do not pay an exorbitant amount to heat/cool my house. I’m frugal…I’m living off others.
He calls EVERY SINGLE DAY. When I do go over there he’s all over me like white on rice. It’s just too much for me to handle.
I need to break up with him.
I really need some advice. I don’t have anyone other than my parents to talk to and I don’t really know how to handle this. Any advice would be appreciated.
