Slacker and Steve - OPP: Wasted 6 Years (Audio)

September 6, 2016

Today’s OPP is from Danielle and she needs your help. Here’s what she said: 

 

Yi,

I'm 27 and have a 37 year old boyfriend that I've been with for 6 years. We have 2 kids together and I'm lost with my life right now. Since we've been together he hasn't done anything. He has no goals, he stays up all hours of the night drinking beer and playing video games, we still live in an apartment that's too small for us. I feel like he's never going to man up and take care of the things he needs to. It's already hard enough with how much I'm working just to make ends meet, I don't think I could do it with the kids by myself. I just feel stuck and this isn't what I had pictured for my life. DO I just admit that I wasted 6 years and throw it all away for nothing? What do I do? How do I get him to start acting like a real man?-Danielle

 

What should Danielle do to get her boyfriend motivated to become a “real man?” Can she do anything or has she just wasted six years of her life?

Danielle and her 37-year-old boyfriend have been together for six years and they have two kids together. During the years, he has accomplished nothing to help her and their kids. All he does is play video games and drink beer. She feels stuck and wants a change. Should she throw her six year relationship away or can she motivate her boyfriend to be a real man?
