A woman's boyfriend is upping her expenses to lower his own. She explained the dilemma on Reddit's "Am I the A******" forum. Her boyfriend decided to move to a more expensive city without telling her first. She now visits him for two weeks every month, but she pays for her commute and half the groceries each time she goes. She now visits him for two weeks every month, but she pays for her commute and half the groceries each time she goes. He doesn't pay for anything, but now he wants her to pay for half his utilities and rent. The girlfriend refused to comply with her boyfriend's financial demands. "If I paid half his rent, my cost of living would be higher than his for a situation I didn't choose," she said. "He replied that it wasn't fair that his bills increased when I came to visit him because of the water, electricity, etc".

Reddit users sided with the girlfriend on this one. "He is using you," a user commented
