You have every right to be concerned.

I would be worried because the fact that he could be unemployed for so long and not even look for a job until the money is running out and not doing much around the house is a sign that he is kind of a lazy person.

Hi;

I am not a very conventional person so I look at this a bit differently.. I do agree your byfriend needs to do something but maybe its not work a full time job.. People can contribute in other ways.. Maybe he could find a part time job or get something where he gets a stipend or something. Or maybe two part time jobs..

Um, he's had no income for the last month, but he's had no JOB for a year and a half, and he's been loving it!

You give a good reason why living together can be a good thing for you would probably never have realized what kind a person your bf is until this happened.

I think he was very stressed at his last job (which can be depressing) and was very relieved and happy to get laid off.

Hey wouldn't we all love to basically get a paid sabbatical from work?
