her bf just got a place, like literally just got approved for it, and this was a long time coming, with her complaining about his current living situation for a very long time (his house is kinda disasterous, he doesnt even have hot water) so she was super excited last night telling me. shes not on the lease or anything, but she was telling me how she was telling her bf how shes so excited to help decorate the place so it looks like a "home" and she is even planning on buying him a new bed, new couch, desk, basically all the main furniture you need. (his stuff is REALLY REALLY crap)
shes all upset now and crying, bc her bf keeps reminding her its "HIS PLACE" and he "doesnt want her decorating it all girly" and "he has the final say in everything regarding decorating and furniture" and "he'll decorate how he wants to decorate it" and he doesnt want her to make "it all italian-y" (we're italian)
now, i may be biased, but i know for a fact that my cousin didnt mean that she was going to make it all girly or "take over" the decorating stuff. she just wants it to be nice bc hes been living in squalor for 3 years.
i dont know what to tell her right now. is she being dumb, or is he being dumb? or are they both being dumb?
