Hire someone to do it. If he gets mad at you, flat out tell him you’re tired of him stalling. Yes, his ego will take a beating but at least you’ll have your lights.
Never underestimate the mysterious man flu - that is serious business and possibly fatal. While he regains his strength, you could help him through his severe condition by not putting any strain on him - in this case hiring a guy to perform the tasks at hand would be really considerate 😂
Return question: If you cook, do laundry, etc do you just do it for yourself and tell your partner and family to do their own stuff because you're off work and thus won't do stuff for others? When a friend moves and asks for help, do you demand a work contact and payment to help them? Come on, get some common sense. The guy works in the field so obviously he can help his partner.
If you could repair your house at the fraction of the cost of hiring someone else to do it, chances are you would. In this instance, OP's boyfriend would be repaid with some new, and better, lights, and a grateful girlfriend. Anything else she wishes to give him after expressing her gratitude is her own doing.
I work in admin/accounts and manage all our money/ bills/ savings/investments so yes. I should mention we own our house in joint names and have a joint bank account so sure I could pay my boyfriend to do work on his house from his bank account but that seems a little counterproductive doesn't it?
Honestly, most trades people are tired of doing “work” when they get home and usually just want to relax and do other stuff.
I agree. I am good with my hands and my flatmate has a list of stuff to be fixed up on the kitchen wall. I know it is my place too and I should do it but, man, I am so tired by the time that I get home that I just want to relax. I have no idea what causes this internal resistance to it.
So then he should admit he does not intend to do it and leave her to either hire someone or muddle he way through using a YouTube tutorial (I have changed lights, they are often a five minute job, though admittedly some are a huge project). No need to say he'll do it if he doesn't wanna.
