My step father, although has a job, is a lazy angry man who loves to bottle his feelings up and wait until he can’t handle it anymore and he snaps. Yelling at my mother, yelling at anyone who gets within distance of him. I ******** hate the man because he’s never been a father to me, Yet my mother loves my step father and has stayed with him despite the bull s**t.

My problem? I have fallen in love with a man whose 3 or 4 years younger than I whose exactly like my step father. He’s got a job, he doesn’t like it, and yet when he’s not working he’s sleeping. It’s like pulling teeth to get the kid to do anything and when I do go to wake him up he’s angry. I’m so tempted to break up with him despite the fact that I truly do love him. I just don’t know what to do.
