Wanted to post a quick reply to you all, I've been reading and rereading all of the advice and words of wisdom you all have offered. Thank you all so much, you've definitely made my week a lot more bearable. I've been printing everything out and contemplating what to do. Last night I got home from work only to find my dog had gone to the bathroom in the house because my boyfriend didn't walk her and a wonderful mess of leftover food and dishes just sitting on the counter in the kitchen. That did it. Well, let's just say I lost it. I didn't yell, I'm not a yeller, but I told him I'm not his mother and I'm tired of cleaning up after he leaves a mess. We discussed a few things before we went to bed and I told him I feel underappreciated and I sacrifice so much more than he does and I've basically had enough. Let's just say nothing actually got resolved as of yet, but hopefully we'll discuss things further over the weekend. Obviously if we do break up it's going to be a long drawn out process because we've already spent 3 years in our house, which is in both of our names, so I don't expect this to be over so soon. We also have the vacation which I know will bring us closer, but I'm hoping I'll realize by then what it is that I want and whether or not he is the man that can give it to me. I'm not looking to change him, I love him as he is, the good and the bad, just as I wouldn't want him to change me. I just want a little more equality in our relationship. I basically clean the entire house from top to bottom (3 floors plus a basement), do all the dishes, do the laundry, just about everything, all I really want is a dinner date every once in awhile that doesn't feel so forced. The last time we went out to dinner was last year for my birthday, that was over a year ago. We even have a gift certificate for a restaurant that he keeps promising to take me to. I'll keep in touch to let you know how it goes. I just hope that I don't fall for a bunch of promises and bologna only to find myself posting here again in a few months with the same problems. I'll try to stay strong, stand my ground, determine what I want from the man in my life and whether or not my boyfriend is that man. Thanks again.
