Hey ya'll, So I've been dating my boyfriend off & on for over a year, we met in Chinese class :)Unfortunately there are some things that confuse me & sometimes make me upset, but he says it's because of a difference in cultures.
For example, he wouldn't let me hug him in front of his brother, he is very shy & reserved when it comes to simple p.d.a.
Tomorrow I fly to Spain with my boyfriend of six years and his two cool kids and I can’t wait to spend quality time with the three of them for our two-week summer break.
If your date has the money but just won’t spend it, she may just be stingy. You may have to make the call as to whether such a relationship is worth continuing, especially if money issues continually crop up. Share your Values Like most relationship problems, issues with money can often be settled with a frank conversation.
Just do your darnedest to pound the pavement and get a job! A good man who loves you would be happy to support you in your times of need, it would be one way of showing his love.
That may be easier said than done if he has the means... Once upon a time, a "fiance" of mine was going to get me a new car, but part of the reason may have been due to his impending divorce - a way to dispose of his loot and help me at the same time. That didn't change how I gave to him, or how he gave to me. A man that is cheap financially betrays much more than stinginess in money areas. I wonder if I will regret not taking them up on their offers. On the other hand, a selfish man who doesn't really care about you will be offended if you pointed out to him the obvious: that you're broke and in need of financial assistance.
Here are some of the emails I've received on this subject: Mimi, I've been going through some tough times financially, trying to get my work life stabilized. Nevertheless, my advice would be to not ask a man for money unless you're sure that he is not offering to help out of ignorance of your situation, and not out of selfishness and lack of empathy.
At times, and even as I write this, I've been quite broke. If we've been dating a bit, I'm honest that I'm struggling, and will even mention a specific need that I might be struggling with. If the latter is the case, then you should reassess your expectations from him and the relationship.
