I (23F) am about to start my third job now that my partner (24M) is on his third month with no income

Girl, I've been where you are. It ended with me kicking him out because he refused to get a job, while I was working 2 full-time jobs and a part-time job. Even then , I was barely supporting the 2 of us. Meanwhile, he was full of excuses about why he couldn't get a job ("This is only minimum wage, I'm better than that," "They want me to work weekends!" "The interview was at 7AM, you know I can't get up that early." "The manager seems like an asshole, I won't work with someone like that."

After 6 months of that, I called a friend to come over while I told him to tack his shit and get out. He did, and moved back in with his grandparents. This was 20 years ago, and I'm told by mutual friends that he's still living in their basement and that they had to put off their retirement because they had to support him. He's 40.

Please, don't be a parent to your partner. That is not what your role is supposed to be in a romantic relationship.
