OPP: Rich Girlfriend Won't Help
Today’s OPP comes from Eric:
Yi ! My girlfriend makes a lot more money than I do, but won’t spend a dime on me because she says it’s the man's responsibility to provide and pay. She’s got expensive tastes too. Basically, she’s loaded, but it never crosses her mind to help me out. She’s an amazing looking woman. She always dresses well and looks great on my arm. It just hurts and annoys me that she never thinks to pay for anything. How can I get her to notice that I’m struggling, without the risk of being dumped?
I think there are a lot of little problems with this situation. One, he should not expect her to buy him the world just because she has a ton of money. Two, she needs to learn that in a relationship, you do pay for stuff, too. Three, it’s a different story if he’s truly struggling. If he usually pays for his bills and so forth and is a trustworthy boyfriend then I don’t see the problem in lending him some money. I mean it shouldn’t even be lending then…If you love the person…I think Eric needs to leave her if she’s not willing to help pay for things. It takes two people in a relationship and he just seems like a doormat.
What advice do you have for Eric?
