Do you lend your honey money?

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?

Truth – June 4 at Caesars!! I am so excited! They have some fantastic wedding packages!

You know, I must have thought you up. I went to a former coworker friends’ bridal shower this past Saturday. She will be moving to Kuwait for a year in June with her new husband.

‘Uncle was 56 with a 23 year old girlfriend’

Ared – That’s what all of my cousins and aunts were saying when we were talking over the weekend. They also have a 1 year old together so that young tender roni will be raising the child without the father. He had no business trying to have a kid but to each his own.

Truth – She didn’t say what company, just that it was a govt contractor. She did say she was going to give it a year but that was it. They are waiting until her son gets out of school to go. They are keeping their house here. That’s a shame about there being nothing to do. She’ll probably adapt better than most because at least she’s been in the military before.

When I hit 56 Imma get me a 23 yo too. Imma take em like a pill once a day by mouth with food.

I don’t think you count Slim. You’re exclusive so you can only date the same dude all the time. Much different than what us truly single folks got going on over here. :lol:

Tell her ARed. So what’s up? With the way things are going, we might need to start our own blog. We can do like a good cop, bad cop thing. I’ll lure em in with the “hey relax. we respect everyone’s situation and opinion.” Then when they completely expose themselves, you hit em with the verbal lashing. ;-)

Remember when JLo said she never heard of Ryan Adams, well neither did I, but it’s ok w/me since I’m not in the music industry. Anyway, I didn’t go to church this Sunday and instead watched Sunday morning in bed. Ryan Adams was the featured artist. Nice interview on him.
