Ask Curbed: How To Remove Your Girlfriend From The Premises

New, 27 comments

Ladies, there's about to be another single man on the market. Oh, happy days. Meanwhile, any advice for this dick?

"hi curbed: my gf moved in with me about a year ago. we dated for about eight months and then she moved into my Hywood one-bedroom. here's the thing: I want to break up. but I feel like if I'm the DUMPER, then I'm the one who should move. I promise I'm not being a dick here, but I don't want to move. I only moved into the place about three months before she moved in, so my ownership stake is sorta non-existent. although, yes, it's just my name on the lease so technically I could kick her out. awful, right? but I KNOW she is going to fricking lose it and expect me to move out, even though I found the place and commute-wise, this place is better for me. the only thing in my favor: I am not certain she could carry the rent. I really am not a dick I promise. what about if I help find her a cheaper place? fuck. I am screwed, right? thanks."
