Boyfriend sold my stuff

I don’t live with my boyfriend but we spend a lot of time together and have stuff at each other’s houses.

He has been having an eBay clear out and informed me today that he had sold some of my stuff. I had given him a few things to sell for me but he has taken other things and sold them!

I’m upset about this but he doesn’t seem to understand my issue.

Of course you’re not unreasonable!

Tell him you want the items he had no permission to sell replacing!

What the fuck?
This is not normal behaviour from him!

DemiL Mon 03-Aug-20 09:14:40

I mean it’s not high value stuff and I hadn’t used it in a while but that’s not the point is it? He’d be really annoyed if I sold his stuff without telling him.

Oh and another thing - he never gives me the money for my stuff!!

This is a sign of mental disorder in some people. My ex’s mother went through a phase of selling his stuff, in conjunction with many other weird behaviours. Not saying it is your bf’s case.

So...he’s stealing from you? Why are you still with him?

What stuff was it?

DemiL Mon 03-Aug-20 09:17:22

A handbag and some dresses.

Go demand the money for your stuff or a replacement, pick up anything you still have at his and dump it

The man not your stuff

DemiL Mon 03-Aug-20 09:17:42

All brand new I might add!

He's selling your shit and not giving you the money for it? In the words of mumsnet, he'd better have a magic penis.

DemiL Mon 03-Aug-20 09:18:51

He’d better give me the money today because yes it seems he’s attempting to make a profit from my stuff and con me out of cash.

He did a shitty thing and cannot see why it is shitty?

Maybe you should burn all the things that he has left at yours.

What!!!! I have no words!!!

Tappering Mon 03-Aug-20 09:20:05

You know that's stealing, right?

Get the cash off him and then dump.

LovingLola Mon 03-Aug-20 09:20:24

Get your money and get rid of him.

SteelyPanther Mon 03-Aug-20 09:20:28

If he doesn’t get your issue - and why should he as he is financially benefitting - he isn’t going to stop doing it.
So you either suck it up, don’t leave stuff at his, or finish with him.

Nottherealslimshady Mon 03-Aug-20 09:23:22

So he's stolen off you. How dare he take your stuff, especially new, to sell. With no intention of giving you any money. He need to replace them. No doubt he sold them for less than you paid.

CalmdownJanet Mon 03-Aug-20 09:28:45

Get the money and run for the hills. What did the thieving fucker say when you told him he had no right yo sell your things?

Lifeisabeach09 Mon 03-Aug-20 09:29:07

As PP have said, he stole from you.

This man does not respect you.
