Dating a man with money
It never even occurred to me to worry about such things (I’ve never discussed credit ratings with a partner), but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have paid it attention when it seemed like things were getting serious.
A recent study seems to indicate that we are stuck in a time warp when it comes to gender and money — we can’t get past the idea that a husband should make more money than his wife, and that is impacting whom we marry, how much a wife works, and even if a couple stays married.
Among the interesting questions posed: What happens when a man marries a woman who has the education and skills to earn more than him? In such couples, surveys show, both wife and husband generally report being less happy about the marriage.
I personally appreciate it when the lady at least as the guy. If the female doesn’t offer to at least buy a round of drinks by the fifth date, then you might want to watch out, because she clearly is expecting you to pay for in the long run. These are all sensitive topics when it comes to first date conversations. Most of us don’t have six months into the future and a college fund for the kids. Some guys don’t mind spending their paychecks on dating. I like to pay for dates, but I’m not a sponsor who’s looking to buy gifts and be on the hook for every single expense. Money is the deciding factor in every decision that you make as a couple. I don’t want to spend every single penny on dates and spoiling my girlfriend. Check out this Love and Money episode of #Talking Taboo to hear more perspectives on money and dating… Since he has money, he didn’t mind paying for this surprisingly costly lunch date. He knew that she was taking advantage of the situation. On this particular afternoon, he went to meet her for a quick coffee/lunch because he had some spare time. She decided that she wanted to eat at a pretty expensive restaurant.Probably not (although I imagine a certain amount of women would eagerly entangle themselves if he was hot; yes, we gals can be incredibly shallow, too).Unemployed, under-employed and low-income men are just not good dating or marriage material in the eyes of many women.
