No it's not. He blatantly lied to me over a dozen times while he strung me along for nearly a year. I find it insulting when people like you choose to be so oblivious to that.
He's about 3k in the hole, eh? Here's a great idea... get a second job. An honorable person would find a way to fix his issues instead of whining about them and running away. He could always go flip burgers if he actually gave a rat's ass about the people he's gave his promises to.
This all started 2.5 years ago and he's been trying to fix it the exact same way. Guess what... it ain't working.
