From some time I've been trying to figure out my feelings for SO. He has been a little too much possessive about everything - clothes, people i want to go out with(literally i have to take permission as he always says no), since it's not mandatory to go to office - have to convince him if i have to go physically to office someday.. then the timelines..
I had been ok (used to feel bad.. used to share also with him sometimes.. but still things were just moving)

Is ur partner’s sense of cleanliness and tidiness a deal breaker? My partner maintains his hygiene but everything else around him is in a state of messiness - he would finish a beer and leave it on the desk. Our home office is full of cans, food container, random trash that my partner does not put away. It stresses me out because his habits make me feel that I will always have to be the one to clean after him...he’s the one with the busier job (he’s a principal at a big 3 consulting firm).

Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though. (Lost work due to pandemic.) With extra medical expenses this year (outside of government insurance) I realize I’m simply not making enough money to do what I want and need to to (medical + travel + investing). Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.
