Thank you for replying so that I can better help you with your questions. I hate to tell you this but your son is right (out of the mouths of babes comes the truth). He is dong nothing to contribute to your household or the relationship so why is he still in your life he doesn't have any incentive to do better for himself or for you, you can do bad all by yourself with out the constant headache. It's as if you have another child to raise and he is a grown man. It makes me wonder what you think your self worth is that you feel you have to settle for such a free loader, you deserve so much better than your getting from this guy if he does absolutely nothing and expects for you to do everything what it is that he wants is a slave so let him go and let him find someone that is willing to put up with him. I really think you should drop the zero and find you a 10 or even a 5 would be much better than what he is doing for you right now. He is a taker and not a giver and at that age I really don't think he will change that either he was use to his mother doing everything or other women doing everything and allowing that behavior, show him that you don't allow nor reward that kind of behavior if you don't allow your children to treat you that way most certainly do not allow a man to do it either.


You will see how much better you will feel once he is gone a weight will be lifted off of your shoulders. The next man you get make sure he does for you and gives back to the relationship 100% from the beginning of the relationship and not just when you ask him to. Make sure this time the off stay off and you don't take him back for any reason until he grows up and appreciate the type of woman you were to him. A woman needs to be appreciated and cherished not used and abused.
