Okay so, I've been officially dating this guy since Feb 6th but have been seeing him for a while before that. He lives in Droitwich Spa, near Worcester which is about 40-50 miles away from where I live. It started out that he would make the journey to Wolverhampton or Birmingham so that we could see either other but after a while that got boring. So I made the decision that I would travel to Droitwich so that we could just chill out (no naughty smilies please lol). It means that it takes me 30 minutes by tram to Birmingham Snow Hill followed by a 50 minutes train journey to Droitwich Spa. I have no problem doing it as I love being with his family and friends. But the journey costs me £8 one way or £10 return and as I'm not working it does cost a lot. There have been times when I have had to borrow money from Ben so that I can get home or have had to charge his mom the money for me to get home when I've cut her hair (she wouldn't let me say no). My mom said that I have been lowering myself by borrowing money from him and that I don't have any pride in myself for doing so. My relationship with my boyfriend had caused a heck of a lot of tension and led to a lot of arguments between myself and everyone in my family. My family hasn't met him yet simply because I don't want them to be the way they are with me with him. My family are saying that all of this has been caused by Ben, which isn't the case and I'm afraid that Ben thinks that is the case too. The real reason this is happening is because I've been trying to get my own independence and life for a few years and I'm finally taking it. I can really see this turning out to be a real mess with either me moving out or being thrown out.
Just need your opinions or advice on what to do..
