What's my bf problem with his car?
Asked Jun 28, 2012, 10:24 AM
Iíve been with my bf for 6 years now. Weíre not married, we donít have child and we live in an apartment. Weíre both 32yo. At the beginning of our relationship, I used his car about 5 times and after that, he refused to lend it to me because I didnít have insurance, which I totally understand. I was waiting for him to add my name on insurance so I could drive his car but he didnít do it in 2 years. 1 year later, he told me he didnít want me to drive it because it was old and I could get stuck somewhere with it. Again, I agreed. Then, 2 years ago, he bought a new car. I asked him if I could drive it since there was no ďdangerĒ anymore and he said yes. I asked him several times when I would be allowed to drive it and he always said ďlaterĒ. Last spring, he gave me a key of his car and he said to me you can drive it later after winter. I replied ďYou give me the $?&$ key when I CAN drive your carĒ. So he took it back and he says that because I didnít seem happy when he gave me the key, he doesnít want me to drive his car. I am really sick of this situation. I feel like he is always pushing the moment I can drive his car.
Some people will tell me to buy one, but we really donít need two cars since we go to work by metro. We only need it on week nights and week-ends. Sometimes, he stays late at work and I have to go at the grocery store by walk even if there is a car in the driveway. If I want to visit my mom who lives at 3-hours drive from me, I have to rent a car even if my boyfriend doesnít need his car.
I offered him to buy the car half-half with him, he refused. He insists that I pay half the gas and half of the parking which I think is not fair but I pay anyway since itís not a big amount.
I am a good driver and people are not afraid to be passenger when I drive. Iíve never had accident either.
I feel something is wrong with this.
What should I do?
