A man slept at his girlfriend’s house four nights a week and never contributed to bills. When he spent an extra long time in the shower with his partner, her roommate got mad. Despite the fact that he made her uncomfortable, he felt it was important to his relationship to stand his ground.
They’d Only Been Together for a Year
The man said, ‘Let me preface this by saying that I, 24, and my girlfriend, 32, who we’ll call Liv, have been seeing each other for close to a year now.’
His Home Was a Nightmare
He saved money on rent where he lived because he shared with eight other men, and his room was a tiny 2x2m that barely had space for a single bed. Because of this, his girlfriend didn’t like sleeping at his house, but the man didn’t want to move elsewhere, as he was saving a lot of money.
He Was Living With Her for Free
Because of the terrible conditions of his home, the man spent a lot of time at his girlfriend Liv’s house, sleeping over at least four nights a week. Her bed was way bigger, and it meant he could use her kitchen, as the one at his house was always full of people. They cooked together at least twice a week, but things started getting awkward.
Her Roommate Hated Him Being There
Liv’s roommate was a woman she had been friends with for years, called Bianca, and the man tried to make an effort with her, but she never returned the favor. He always felt awkward around her, and whenever he tried to create a bond by asking her questions, she only ever gave one-word answers. She never asked him anything or tried to get to know him in any way. She didn’t even know what he did for a living.
The Man Was Making Her Uncomfortable
One day, the man’s girlfriend told him that his presence made her roommate uncomfortable. Of course, he was hurt by this and felt bad that Bianca wasn’t comfortable in her own home, and he was the reason behind it. He tried to be considerate towards her, but nothing was good enough.
She Didn’t Like Him
Whenever the man was in the house, he tried to stay out of the communal areas to avoid intruding on Bianca’s space. He always went straight to Liv’s room when he arrived late after work and only used the kitchen when his girlfriend was there. He was also careful not to spend too much time hogging the bathroom. But it wasn’t good enough for Bianca.
They Messed Up
The man made a mistake that upped the tension in the home. He and his girlfriend were showering together when they lost track of time. After roughly thirty minutes, the couple heard the front door slam, and Liv received a furious text from Bianca, calling them selfish and that she had really needed to use the bathroom.
She Was an Introvert
The man said, ‘We both put ourselves in her situation and said we would’ve knocked on the bathroom door to ask us to hurry up if we were busting, but she’s a bit more timid than we are.’
He Ruined Their Friendship
Unfortunately, since he had been seeing Liv, her relationship with her roommate had broken down. They used to be friends, and now their home was filled with tension. The man felt bad as he wasn’t paying any money towards rent or bills and was staying there four nights a week. But he saw it as a trial run for their future living together, which they would do when Liv’s lease was over. But that was months away!
His Friends Said He Was in the Wrong
The man felt bad that his girlfriend’s relationship with her roommate had broken down, but he didn’t want to stop sleeping at her home. He asked his friends what they thought, and to his surprise, they said he was in the wrong. The man didn’t know what to do, so he asked the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, ‘Paying towards rent/utilities would help, but personally, I would be more bothered by having a strange man in my living space four days a week than the money.
Others Chimed in
Another commented, ‘Don’t be a leech.’
