I'm currently living with my boyfriend. Our lease is up at the end of July, and I told him last month I wanted to end the relationship and part ways completely. He has pleaded with me to give him another chance, and when I tell him no, he gets vicious. This past weekend was the worst it has ever been. Here's a few gems from the past two days:
"Fuck you, bitch. I hate you".
"Good luck finding another man willing to put up with your three dogs".
"You are totally crazy. I hope you know it".
"So, since we're splitting up, I can just go out to the bar tonight and get laid, right"?
"Oh, you're so perfect aren't you? I'm such a horrible person, huh? Well you stayed with me. I haven't been all bad. You're so dramatic".
"You think you're so smart. Well I'm smarter than you".
I would stay with a friend, but we have dogs together, and I know he isn't going to care for them while I'm gone. I can't legally kick him out, since his name is also on the lease. I asked him to move out, and he shrugged and said, "you're stuck with me". I'm at my wits end with this guy, and need to get away from him. His behavior is worsening, and I'm on edge all the time. He hasn't tried anything physical with me, but after his temper flared this past weekend, I don't trust that he won't. He seems frantic.
I can't afford to move into a new place right now (I'm in school, and work part time). Is there a way I can interact with this guy to keep things relatively peaceful when he's here, until I can figure out a way to move out?
