Horse vrs. Boyfriend.
Let me just say that I am overly frustrated right now. I have been dating my boyfriend for almost a year now and he KNEW when he started dating me I had a horse. That was RJ, at the time and I was boarding him. He was all into horses and thought it was the cutest thing and came over to see him and watch me work him all the time. So I was really ecstatic to find someone who liked horses too. Then I brought RJ home, and since he was kicked out of his parents house my parents were nice enough to let him move in for very little in rent. So I was trying to train a horse in hard circumstances, because I didn't have right equipment, the right people to help me, and they started logging behind my house. So I wanted to buy a different horse, so I went out looking and he got mad and me because I just wasn't going to sell RJ and be done with horses. And I explained to him that horses are my life, they are what I want to do in life and I will never live without one so long as I have the money to have one.
So now I have Gizmo, and because he couldn't save money my dad kicked him out, so he lives a town away and he wants an apartment, and I DO NOT want to live in an apartment! He KNEW this because I have only told him five thousand times, and I am not giving up Gizmo after I have searched so long for a great horse and finally found one.
He really doesn't understand that apartments around here run 900-1200 a month, if you saved that money instead of throwing it out the window into an apartment you can buy a nice house in a couple of years of savings. I don't know why he is trying to rush it so much I am only 20 years old! It is hard out there, things cost so much now a days. I would rather save for something I want than throw money out the window for something I would HATE.
So now all he says is that I love my horse more than him and that I never pay attention to him, and I do! I feel like I am neglecting Gizmo because I'm trying to spend time with him. I am so frustated and just have been crying about everything. Am I wrong and being selfish by not wanting to sell Gizmo and move into an apartment? I don't think I am. Does anyone have any advice or anything? I mean it has gotten so bad lately any mention of Gizmo he freaks out and won't talk to me the rest of the night.
