I really like him, we get along great, we each contribute equally to the relationship, and we see eye-to-eye on many things.
However, the financial differences between us have begun to take a toll on me. It is difficult for me to keep up with him and his friends — who have become mine — when it comes to eating out, going to concerts, Ubering long distances to bars, etc.
I have addressed my financial situation with him bluntly in the past, and he offers to pay for me constantly. This weighs much more heavily on me than it does on him, despite my subtle offers to cook at home or to sweet woman seeking casual sex brockton drink and be deated driver so I can drive instead of paying for rides.
Is there a different approach to take that would save my wallet? Do I accept his offers to pay?
Or is this a wedge in my social life that must be accepted? I take pride in taking care of myself.
And when I volunteer to drive, please let me drive. Will he skip the nice dinner out once a week? Will he ask the friends to do the same?
Will he embrace change or roll his eyes all the way to resentment? Will you let him treat you sometimes so he can still enjoy nice things, since he has every right to?
