The question of money is inevitable throughout any relationship. Even with your friends, sooner or later, you will be confronted to this question. Who never asked his/her friends to borrow temporarily some money? Of course, if you discharge quickly your debt towards your friends, there’s no problem. But if you start to forget to pay them back, chances are you will get trouble with them, and even lose their friendship.
The question of money is sometimes delicate with your friends, and it can be dramatic in your love life too. Unfortunately for men, it’s still one of the first criterias that comes into the mind of most women when they think about a potential lover. It doesn’t mean that all these women are shallow. Some of them have
good reasons to want a rich lover. “My ex was constantly asking me for money, because he was always broke. He always promised to me he would pay me back, but never did. And in the end, when we broke up, he stil owed me more than 10.000 euros” G., 34, said. “My future man should never have money problem, it’s all I wish” she added. On the other hand, some women want rich men just to benefit from their fortune.
Besides, old habits never die. When you’re a men, you have to pay the bill at the restaurant or offer her a drink. Try to propose her to pay for the whole bill, or just her part, and see her reaction. Some women would be offended to get such a proposal. ” I thought he was joking when he asked me to pay the bill, but he wasn’t. I just left him straight away. How rude it is ?” K., 31, explained. But some men would be offended too if a woman asks to pay for the bill. “I insisted to pay, but he wouldn’t want me to do that. He told me to stop acting like a feminist” J., 29, said.
So, what place money occupies in your love life? Ladies, do you let him pay the bill at the restaurant/bar/ cafe, or would you rather share the bill with him/ pay the whole bill ? Gentlemen, is it OK with you to pay the bill or would you prefer to share?
