    About 3-4 weeks ago my boyfriend bought himself a new 50 gb i-pod.. ok cool… then about a week or a couple days before valentines day he bought himself new hockey gear from head to toe.. and if anyone knows, hockey stuff is not cheap.. also during that time he got pulled over and recieved a 60- 70 dollar ticket… he spends alot of money on himself… and those are just a few of the more expensive things hes spent money on laitly..then when valentines day comes around…. he tells me a few days before not to expect anything special cause he doesn’t have any money..? i wonder why. and i’m not saying that i need material things to be happy, and i wasn’t expecting to recieve anything spectacular, but i kinda just thought maybe i’d get something with sentimental value, since we’ve been dating for over a year and i haven’t gotten anything of the sort… now for myself, i’m a full time student and have NO money, but i wanted to do something special. so i cut out 101 hearts and taped them to my ceiling, each one saying a reason why i love him. then on top of that i used the last $10 in my back account and 10 i got from my mom to get stuff for chocolate fondue. so i made my room all pretty with candels and all and the hearts on my ceiling. i just wanted to let him know how much i appreciated him. So, he took me out for dinner, valentines day, which is typical that day, hence the 1 hr wait, i wanted to get dressed up.. he complained about that.. and finally gave in, then when we got back to my place me gave me a card and a 2 hersheys chocolate bars… it was nice cause i love chocoalte and dont have money do buy it ever..
    is it wrong that he spends so much money on himself.??? and he doesn’t like to save his money on top of that… sorta just makes me feel like i’m not worth it.. or is this dumb to worry about??

    once again, i said i wasn’t expecting anything. and i’m def not a material girl, if you knew me you’d understand. obviously, cause i’m a poor college girl. and we have a great relationship on top of that, guaranteed one day we will get married.. i was just hopeing that i would get something nice for valentines day since i have always put my heart and sole into valentines day to express my love..

    and sometines i just feel thats its selfish, because i’m such a giving person, when i’m not studying i spend my time volunteering at a nursing home or spending my time with him, usually doing things to let him know i love him

    oh and last year he was 6000 in debt to his credit card..

    My mother has been giving $150-250 a month (that she cannot afford) to a cousin who promises to repair/do all these odd jobs in the house. The issue is that 95% of the work NEVER gets done or even started, yet he keeps getting money and more money from my mother (when I am not around). The only time she ever hears from or sees this cousin is at the beginning of the month when he knows she’s received her Social Security check! I have tried to hover around IF I know when he is coming over so that he can’t get money from her (he has 101 sob stories), but it’s not always possible for me to sit there for hours guarding my mother from him.
    I have warned my mother repeatedly about this cousin because he ripped me off (before I KNEW what a con artist he is) for over 1K in home remodel work that was never done, but she will not listen to my warnings and pleas NOT to give him any more money. There are two options of action that I am considering since nothing I have tried so far has worked:
    1) Take away her checkbook (my name is on her account so I could pay the bills but NOT him)
    2) Go to the bank and tell them NOT to cash any check made out to this man or any of his family members (they have a different last name from ours because they are distant cousins)
    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
