SO things in your relationship seem to be off to a good start, but then comes a bump in the road in the form of your partner’s ‘promises’. They keep telling about all the things that they are going to do, all the things that they are going to accomplish, but never do anything to make you feel that it will ever happen. All they do is talk.

Now the bills are way past due, and your child doesn’t have any lunch money for school because your partner has used the money to pump into their daydream of a better tomorrow. Time after time you find that you have to be the one stepping in with the S on your chest trying to save the mess that they have created.

Do you stick around to support their dream, or do you move on?


There is nothing wrong with having a dream, but if his dream is going to affect how our family functions, then he will have to get another dream.


I’m sorry, but I’m not going to sit by and watch this man mess up my life because of his dreams. What about my dreams of paying bills?


I would support her and her vision once it is practical and functional.


My ex was a dreamer, and years later he is still dreaming. There comes a point when you have to be a part of the real world. If your dream has failed you time and time again, then maybe it’s time to give up on it or find a new dream.


When my wife told me she wanted to be an event coordinator I told her it wouldn’t work, not on our budget and two kids. She never gave up, and now she is doing fine and I’m proud of her.
