Cash Chronicles: 26, $70,000, toxic relationships or too needy?

The aim is to encourage people to start talking about their money in real life. What you buy, when, and how you FEEL seeing it all recorded at the end of the week.

This series allows us to think about money without all the stresses of confronting our own finances.

No one is perfect with money.
But talking about money makes us smarter.

Note from Aoife:  Hey The Footnotes. Super weird and left of field, but I always judge people’s relationships in Cash Chronicles (even though they are about money). Can you please publish this (change my name) and leave my intro here….“Can people tell me if I am an annoying / hard to get on with girlfriend – or in a shitty relationship? I feel like my friends will never give me a real answer because they are worried about offending me, but some of the comments on the Cash Chronicles are so brutal I thought I’d get some clarity. Comment on the Facebook post…”

  • Communication seems to be the main problem! You need to learn to actually talk about your issues/what’s bothering you instead of bottling it up and slamming doors.
    But, also, Josh does seem to be irresponsible/unthoughtful esp. with the Friday night no show… although you could have met him at the pub instead of cried at your friends.

    TBH, mostly seems like lack of communication and in particular, communicating about expectations and solutions.

    And what did he think about spending $900 in one night out? Did he think it was fine or and omfg can’t believe I did that…?

  • I agree with the above regarding communication. You’re not communicating your needs and feelings effectively. Mind you, your boyfriend is behaving wildly immature and in my books has committed some deal-breaker offences. Don’t waste your 20’s on man-babies; learn about good communication and practice it on someone who deserves it.

  • The Friday night no-show is not OK.the walking ahead is weird but just call out to him/actually bring it up and see what he says. He can spend $900 on a night out if it’s his money, but if the alcohol is taking precedence over quality time with you that’s an issue. Red flag in fact. Bring it up clearly and if he doesn’t change, leave ASAP.

  • Agree with everyone on this thread. Communication definitely lacking: speak to him about why the walking ahead/boozy nights are upsetting. Maybe take some time to think about what sort of relationship you want so you can communicate this with him. Open it up for discussion so you can both determine where you want to be at this point in your life/what’s important to you etc. If it’s not the sort of relationship either of you want to be in then you can amicably split.
    Admittedly, sounds like he’s bashing the booze come the weekend and that’s going to get out of control if he doesn’t reign it in, so speaking to him about it would be a good idea, at least from a harm-minimisation point of view. He might need help.
    But also, sounds like he’s not really emotionally mature yet, and you both have some growing to do.
