I'm sorry, PT for ten years? When I was 16, I had a PT job at McDonald's. I wanted to buy a car. So I got a second PT job at another McDonald's, thus making FT money and bought my first car. Been driving ever since which turned into a lucrative career at UPS. My point is, it seems your boyfriend lacks drive in his life. Case in point, you are still here in this thread advocating for a "grown man". Dude gotta man up, you can't do that for him. And you could probably do better, just saying.
My British friend had two full-time jobs in America. One job for eight years and then the next job for a year before flying back to England, @FedUPSer9816.
