My boyfriend and I have been together almost 5 years. I'm 25 and he is 28. We live together. He was laid off recently due to no fault of his own his job was doing cutbacks. He told me the other day that he asked to borrow $300 from his mom. Which i understand he may need to borrow money due to his job situation until he finds another job. I'm just hurt that he went to his mom before me his own girlfriend. I mean we live together for crying out loud definitely been together long enough where if he needs something I would think I would be his first go to person. Is this a sign that he doesn't see me as serious as I thought? He is 28 I guess I also feel that at this stage of the game we should be relying more on each other for emergency needs than anyone else. He is a full fledge adult.
He asked his mom before me?

Maybe he would feel like less of a man if he asked you for money, like he feels like is suppose to provide for you, not the other way around. I know it sounds stupid, but I am sure his pride is already hurt from the job loss.0
he's probably embarrassed about feeling like he needs to borrow money, which is a typical trait for most guys. it would be far more comfortable to ask a parent, who you've known for 28 years, than a girlfriend whom you'd like to impress. I wouldn't worry about it at all if I were you0

Your boyfriend is a man. He would want to appear that he's the independent one in every occasion, and though you have been together for so long, of course he would have cut off a large chunk of his ego to borrow money from you, and he's embarrassed because he doesn't have a job anymore. Please don't take his action for a bad thing. You could talk to him about it, if you want to. :)1
he probably didn't feel right taking money from you I don't know0
