Much harder chapter.
why is it hard to talk about money? My dear BF got defensive and angry... or rather simply stressed out on the first question. I felt calm and relaxed. I wasn't expecting him to have all the answer. I thought it was interesting to think about how much we make together. Or think about it in theory.. ya know... 30% going there, 10% there etc. Where as, he was obviously more uptight and stressed.
I understand. He isn't happy with his current employment. He was laid off from a good job a year ago. And is still anxious about getting a good job back etc. He is making decent money now but it isn't what he wants to do... As for me, I feel great about my employment and see a bright future. I've been in my field for a long time and I feel very secure in it. When he finaly gets his foot back in the door of a good company, he feels confident (and i am of him as well) that he'll do well.. but right now, there hasn't been much out there.
i didn't push. i'm willing to take my time on this topic.
