Slacker and Steve - OPP: Girlfriend Not Pulling Weight (Audio)

July 21, 2016

Today’s OPP is from Travis and he needs your help! Here’s what he said:

 

Yi

My girlfriend was struggling to pay rent so she moved into my place. I make way more money than she does and she can't really afford to help with a lot of the bills. I kind of expected her to pick up the slack in other areas and she's not at all. I mean she barely works and the house is always a mess. She lazes around most days and doesn't even get dressed or go out to look for a better job. She expects me to pay to take her out to dinner instead of cooking. How do I get her to realize her role and start taking care of herself and things around the house? -Travis

 

How can he motivate her to pull her weight?

Travis' girlfriend moved in with him because she was struggling to pay rent and ever since she moved in, he has been disappointed with her lack of effort in other areas. He pays all of the bills and she barely works. Rather than finding a new job or cleaning up the house, she lies around all day. How can he motivate her to pull her weight?
