I am stuck at home with NO FOOD and no way to get it. Why? I am ex...

My boyfriend is incredibly cheap. If he ever pays for anything for me in the company of other people he expects me to pay him back the next day. He never takes me out on dates. He always uses the same excuse when we're out: "I don't have enough cash on me"... Then use your card?! He'd never do anything as simple as buy me a drink let alone a dinner or a movie ticket. If he ever on the off chance d...

From $5500 per month to $2300 per month paying off the exact same debt amount. Even if the credit cards are closed will not sign on approved loan.
