I have been living with my boyfriend for about 6 months now (together almost 2 yrs) and i feel like i am doing all the work around the house, as in dishes, groceries,laundry ect. he doesnt help out very much and its not like he cant, he mostly plays video games so he has the time to help out. I feel like i shouldnt have to ask ( he has lived on his own before and should know what needs to be done) also, he always “forgets” that he made plans with me. for instance he asked me about a week ago, if after he was finished his game if i wanted to watch a show, of course i agreed. i waited for 3 hrs and just as i was saying good night to him he said he forgot that he said he would watch the show and we would watch one the next day.. (which never ended up happening) this is the first instance this has happened in. we barely spend any quality time together and it makes me really sad.
so i told him that i feel like maybe i should move out (i would be moving to my moms house) i am supposed to be moving in a few days but i feel like maybe i am making a mistake.. am i just giving up? we are still planning on staying together just not living together but i feel like i am letting him down. i really have no idea what to do. should i stay here , or move?
also other info: we currnetly live in a basement suit, with neighbours who our are frieinds upstairs. and the expenses for this place are pretty expensive,
