    Default DP sticks his head in the sand.

    DP is the type of person that sticks his head in the sand when an issue occurs. If it's an issue (such as money), or about him I give it a certain amount of time (usually a week), before I finally have had enough of the anxiety and deal with it.

    I try really hard not to be controlling, but it is extraordinarily difficult not to come across that way when he just leaves it and does nothing with it.

    Sometimes I fantasize about a partner that is on top of things, discusses issues and deals with them.. I think this might be fantasyland only though.

    We must be with the same man.

    Sometimes I can let it go and watch him deal with the consequences. . most times I have to jump in and fix it.

    I think it's just a personality thing.. he is laid back.. I like order.

    DP had a fine that he just didn't want to call up and deal with, and instead of confronting it head on and trying to arrange a payment plan he left it so long he added about $120 worth of fee's to it.

    I see my job as trying to save every penny we can, I just don't understand why he doesn't get it.

    Does he see it as a problem? Coz unless he does, then he wont change.
    I think you might need to consider if it is a dealbreaker for you, or if it's something you are prepared to put up with and be the one to take initiative with those sorts of things.

    We've been together for nearly 10 years, and TBH I understand he thinks I'm stepping on his toes, but how long does it have to go on for? I already need to direct him like a child to do certain things (this is his instruction to get things done), and this already grates on me. Then having to be the nag, gosh, I never wanted to be that partner.
