Signs Your Man is Mooching Off of You

By

Does your man only show up at meal time, often forget his wallet, or ask you to run his errands for him? Chances are, you’ve got a money sucking moocher who is not only wasting your cash but your time and your good lovin’ too. See my list of criteria to determine if your man is into you or what you have – making him a mooch – if he qualifies as such a parasite, save your sanity and your bank account and give this guy the boot!

 

1.     He’s designed a date payment rotation plan. And on his cycle, surprise surprise, his dates are always remarkably low to no cost – things such as picnics, a walk on the beach or he just so happens to be in the mood for a cuddly DVR night in. However, on your nights to put up, he suggests the latest and greatest restaurant, bar or club in town, or “Hey, how about we catch the Laker game tonight?”

 

2.     Like clockwork, every time your stomach rumbles, simultaneously your doorbell rings and who’s there? None other than your man, there to raid your fridge.

Moochers are always on the prowl for free food so when it’s feeding time, you can expect to see him.

 

3.     If you’ve considered a wallet chain the perfect gift for your guy because he just so happens to forget his all the time when you go out leaving you to foot the bill, this is a sure sign of a mooch. Another key sign – on more than a few occasions his credit card has mysteriously declined.
