Basically I met my bf 4 years ago, he was running an event company until Covid started. The last event he had failed and he hasn’t had one since.
He moved in almost right away & asked me to support him with his new venture, which is a blockchain mobile app, he gave me 49%. I’m a ui/ux designer and digital marketing specialist and have been freelancing since 2015, I was making decent money for just me on my own, had a sole proprietor etc… so I was happy to help. Since I agreed to help, he thought it wasn’t worth him getting a job because he wanted to focus on the business, he was convinced that income would start coming in within a few months, despite me telling him that may be unrealistic.
Months go by and we’re struggling because there’s only one income, I’ve practically begged him to get a job which he refuses becoming he thinks I’m trying to demotivate him or tear him down.
During Covid I spent almost a year making a prototype for him, but we don’t have the money to pay for a developer. More months pass, the plan keeps changing, new businesses added and no momentum.
It’s now been about 4 years and I’m becoming increasingly resentful and concerned. He has great ideas but I worry he has become delusional.
He still won’t get a job, we’re living at his grandmas and he won’t humble himself and get a job. We can’t even afford to pay for software, tools etc.. he does delivery on skip the dishes sometimes but it’s Pennies.
He keeps saying the reason that the reason we are where we are is because I haven’t finished the websites, but we can’t even afford the tools and I’ve been needing to Focus on making immediate money by taking clients.
Im now being demonized for abandoning ship when I haven’t but I can’t focus on something that is not making money, I’m in survival mode!
