Dating relationships can sometimes take on marital-type roles. Whether it’s making joint decisions about where to live, vacation, or even spending money. A lot of couples figure out that they have some major differences when money becomes an issue.
When a guy I had just started seeing asked to borrow money, I can remember my opinion of him changing a little. I don’t know if it was the sign of things to come, but his attitude about repaying me didn’t sit well with me at all. I don’t think it is why we broke up, but it definitely was an eye-opening experience about compatibility.
Money and relationships can be tough for women but I can’t imagine what it’s like for men. Generally men have a natural desire to provide and protect, but does this apply in dating? Do men mind loaning money to the women they date? If so, would men raise their gold-digger threat level to green?
Have you ever loaned money to someone you dated? Have you ever asked someone you were seeing for financial support?
Do you think there are a few tips or guidelines for loaning your honey money?
