A Guy Allowed His Friend to Stay at His Place without Charging Rent, but Now She Wants Him to Pay for Her Food Too

A guy recently asked the internet if he was wrong for not buying food for a female friend who was staying at his place without paying rent. Here’s what he had to say.

The Man Had A Highschool Friend

When the man was younger and in high school, he was friends with a girl called Madison, who was popular among students. The two were genuine friends, and the man knew she was way out of his league.

He never had any thoughts of having a relationship with her. After the man went away to university, he remained friends with Madison. He was extremely happy for her when she got married.

The man said, “It’s not one of the FAANG companies, but they still provide some really cool stuff for their employees. Our cafeteria is free and open 24 hours a day. We can eat all our meals there if we want. They have a nutritionist that makes sure the meals are tasty and healthy.”

The man took advantage of the free food that was on offer to him on a fairly regular basis, but he kept food at his apartment to make meals at home based on recipes he learned from his father.

Earlier this year, the man’s friend Madison separated from her husband and asked him if she could stay with him as she figured things out. The man had a spare room at his apartment, and seeing as he was good friends with Madison, he agreed.

He Thought It Would Be Temporary

He initially thought that Madison staying at his house would be a temporary arrangement. She had a job of her own and access to a joint bank account that she shared with her husband.

The man felt his friend would be at his house for a couple of weeks and that she would then go and stay with her family or sort things with her husband. Instead, she has been in his home often, other than when she leaves for work.

The man continued, “She ate all my food in the fridge and pantry. I went grocery shopping once so far, but she ate everything again and didn’t offer to pay to replace it. I asked her when she would be moving on, but she said she didn’t know. I asked her for some money for groceries, and she said she hadn’t been paid.”

He added, “It’s been five weeks. I don’t think anyone holds back wages that long.”

Recently, instead of going to Whole Foods to buy groceries, he started eating all of his meals either at his work or at a restaurant he passed on his way home. Madison asked the man when he would go shopping, but he told her he was too busy with work.

She then offered to go shopping for both of them if he gave her the money, but he then said that he was too busy to even cook food at home. Madison then accused the man of being a jerk for trying to use food to control her. She also said that he was too cheap to help her out.

Madison also said she feels that the man is trying to be with her in a relationship. He is not charging her any rent, and he honestly knows that he would never enter a relationship with her, no matter what.

Though he still thinks she is a beautiful person, he is now seeing a side of his friend that he has never seen before. As such, the man has asked the Reddit community if he is being a bad person by not being willing to buy food for his friend.

People Responded

“I know this is not (a piece of) advice, but you need to get her out of your house,” said one commenter. 

Another opinionated, “This has the potential to go sideways really badly. Maybe I’m just a pessimist, but it sounds like she thinks you are a better meal ticket, both figuratively and literally than her husband.”
