Dating a man who is always broke
I'd rather miss out than spend money I don't have. I'm completely broke, pretty much no discretionary money.I have a good job that pays well, but a lot of bad stuff happened in my life and I'm stuck with a large amount of debt.
Maybe find yourself an equally broke girlfriend who's happy to do free stuff with you. I've dated guys who made a little more or a little less but I've never dated someone with so little discretionary money. I'm kind of a homebody and most of the time I'm pretty happy to stay home and chill.....have sex. They learned to get by in life without luxuries of any kind. He's intelligent, educated and seems to have a decent work ethic, but still balanced priorities. We make about the same amount of money but he pays child support and I get child support. I don't mind paying for myself or taking turns.You know those things that your former boyfriend used to do because he could afford it? You know those great, cute gifts your friends get from their boyfriends and post on Instagram?
Sorry ma’am, you might not be able to post them for a while.
And self-defeating if you really enjoy his company. If you're dating a guy who has limited discretionary income due to ACTUALLY taking financial responsibility for his kids and not bucking the system, well, he sounds like a pretty okay guy to me.
