Dear Todd Parker, (12/24/14)

I've realized that I'm dating a child. We've been together for seven months, and we enjoy each other's company. I love him and he's very sweet to me. The problem (and all our problems) lie in the fact that he's 27 and lives at home with his parents and while he works full time, he somehow wastes away all of his money and is constantly broke (and he makes twice as much as I do and I live on my own.)

It affects our relationship because he asks to borrow money (which I do not lend him) and constantly has to cancel plans because he can't afford to do anything. It's ridiculous to me that he has no adult skills in responsibility, and is nowhere near being able to handle himself on his own. He's good at doing what he's told to do, but not at independently choosing to do it.
