Many, Many people are still trying to get their foot in the door at 30yo. Feeling bad about yourself will not help you. If you are in reasonably good health, and you can put food on yours and your BFs plate and you have a roof over your head, then you are doing well compared to many others in this country.

Keep it in perspective. I realize you saw things differently a few years ago, but give it time and find out what you need to do to improve your lot in life and then do it.

I know it is easier said than done, but many of us have been there.

I could be mistaken, but I think the fiance is an ex-con according to her other thread, so they might not put him on the lease.

Oh you think that's bad? I'm 30 years old and still in grad school. I have never made $30k/year...count your blessings.

Currently I average the net that the OP does. And all my bills are paid early. I even pay extra on the mortgage and save for repairs. And I don't have the live-in bf bringing in an extra $800/mo. The OP is ridiculous in what she expects to be able to have for discretionary income.

Ex-con boyfriend? If that is true, then OP is going to live a life of hardship.

The boyfriend condemned himself to a life of extra difficulties when he committed the felony, and if OP wants to hitch her life to his, she is going to share in the extra hardships.
