He Wants His Flatmate to Chip in On His Girlfriend’s Meals as She’s a Picky Eater and Might Not Like What They Cook

A woman recently had a disagreement with her flatmate because he expected her to pay for his girlfriend’s meals. They usually split the cost of groceries equally, but the girlfriend has specific food preferences. Here’s what she had to say.

She moved in with her friend

Six weeks ago, the 21-year-old woman moved in with her good friend John. John met a girl called Cat about six months prior, and the two of them had become quite close. The woman, initially thrilled for John, soon found herself struggling to connect with Cat.

“I think that, in the nicest way possible, she is a bit rude,” the woman said. Despite her reservations about Cat, the woman was determined to maintain a good relationship with her for John’s sake.

“Since then, John was always inviting her to every friend outing, so I got to know her. We have lots in common, and for John’s sake, I wanted to be her friend,” she said.

Despite this, the woman was still wary of her and said, “She hasn’t done anything to me personally, but I just don’t like her much. I’m happy John has found someone he cares for, but having to stand by and watch how she acts sometimes rubs me the wrong way.”

However, problems arose when John invited Cat for dinner multiple times a week. Cat had a very limited diet, and the woman was empathetic towards any potential underlying issues, but she did not want to be responsible for Cat’s dietary preferences.

The problem got worse when John wanted to purchase additional backup meals for Cat, in case she didn’t like what they were cooking, and expected the woman to help pay for them. They split the shopping bill between them, and John wanted to add Cat’s meals to their joint shop.

When she explained to John that she wasn’t happy about paying for Cat’s meals, John accused her of being selfish, saying she only wanted to save money. She told John that it should be his responsibility to pay for Cat’s meals.

“John is in a much better financial situation than I am, and while I can pay my share of the bills and occasionally have outings with friends, I don’t want to be dishing out extra money for a girl I have no real connection to,” the woman said.

She wondered if she was being unreasonable

She even suggested that if Cat didn’t like the meal they were cooking, she could come over on a different day. Either that or John buys her backup meals out of his own pocket. They argued, and this made the woman feel like she’d been too harsh. She didn’t want to fall out with John over this

One user said, “It is time to take a financial and social step back from John as he navigates his new relationship. He can’t expect you to help finance the fact that his girlfriend eats like a child and needs backup meals.”

Another user said, “She is not your responsibility. She can either buy her own meals if she doesn’t like what you guys eat, or John can do that for her as he is her boyfriend.”
