In a new relationship of around 5 months, recently officially became an item.

Problem is, it's boring! We never go out anywhere as I'm a work from home mum with no help in the evenings. He is very laid back, and happy to come here for evenings. But literally, it's boring! He has no drive, desire for anything more in his life. He has children but his daughter is so rude to one of mine! I know I need to end it, he certainly isn't the love of my life. More of a 'for now' relationship.

Do I continue? Or cut and run now?

Why are you asking? You haven't said one positive thing about him, so move on.

End it, you won't find anyone decent while you're marking time with him.

I'd bin him off

Cut and run.

I understand the need to persevere with a new relationship, and to feel resentful that you've not yet got a return on your investment so to speak.

This is as good as it's ever going to get though, so quit while you're behind

Reading massively between the lines, sounds like he just wants to get his feet under the table. Exterminate!

Unanimous then!

Yes definitely a good idea. Will work my way round to it asap!

Good luck, it's never easy. But you'll feel better once it's done.
