I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I decided to move in with an acquaintance to help her out financially, and we agreed that aside from the rent, I would pay the bills and she would write me a check each month. She doesn't make as much as I do and so after a while I stopped asking her for the check and would simply pay the bill. This resulted in her not paying me anything for months. I recently told her I need her help again and she wrote me a check to cover 1 month. She's now working more hours and just bought a brand new tv, so now I'm wondering what to do. Should I ask her for money from the months she never paid, or should I just forgive and forget about it? I feel like I've dug myself into a hole here because I didn't have the courage to ask her for the money at the time, and now I feel it's too late. That and she might not have the money since she just bought a tv. Yet I also feel like she should have pestered me so she could pay her half. So now I feel like I've let her walk all over me and it's too late to go back and ask her for more money. Besides which, I'm only living there for another 6 weeks and I worry that if I suddenly ask her for money it'll create problems with our relationship.
