My brother is a very hardworking man and at 27 he is now very wealthy and doing well for himself. He’s been with this girl for six months and throughout the time we have gotten close because we both like hair, makeup, and shopping. I never knew there was anything wrong with their relationship except when she texted me last week I saying she would love to hang out but thinks it’ll be inappropriate because her and my brother broke up. I asked her why and she said she was sick and tired of “auditioning” to prove she was with him for the right reasons. She went on to say that my brother is paranoid she’s after his money so he would test her like 1. Leaving out his bank statements on their bed and getting upset when she picked it up 2. Going out to eat at high end restaurants he requested and leaving his wallet on home at purpose to make her pay the bill and prove she’s not going out with him for money 3. Never buying her gifts and questioning her when she asks why he doesn’t.
I was shocked so I had to hear my brothers perspective. We spoke and he told me everything she said was true and that there’s nothing wrong with making sure his girlfriend is with him for the right reasons. He said he left his bank statements on the bed and was peeking through the door to see if she would be curious and when he saw her pick up the papers he knew in his gut she was using him for his money, so he set up the restaurant idea to see if she would get upset at paying a 500$ bill which she was. I asked him if he thinks her being an elementary school teacher could’ve contributed to her being upset at a 500$ bill at a restaurant he wanted to go to and he said no. He said the straw that broke was when she asked him why he hasn’t bought her a single gift since they’ve started dating when she bought him a gaming console and new rims for his car and he knew she was just discretely asking him to buy her an expensive gift.
He confronted her and said he thinks she’s with him for his money so she said let me do us both a favor and dumped him and blocked him. He’s upset about the “gold digging bitch” and when I laughed he called me an asshole. He said I would never understand what’s it’s like being a rich man and being used and I get that concern, but I told him if he thinks any woman will be okay with his tests and auditions he’s delusional as hell. If he doesn’t want to be used for his money he should start dating people as wealthy as him or leave lower income people alone if he’s... keep reading on reddit ➡
Julia seems genuinely really into her elf on the shelf.
Yara is super heigh maintenance and demanding, but also seems into Jovi.. in a very resentful way, but into him.
Natalie..as I mentioned on a comment before, I think her and Mike and “settling soulmates” like Liz Lemon and Wesley Snipes. She probably thought she could do better after her ex, but got sabotaged by her own age and her biological clock ticking really loudly.
None of this to be confused with gold digging, which is being in it exclusively for the money/benefits —a la Anfisa.
My Russian isn't that great, and I tried to explain the term to my Ukrainian neighbors. Didn't work out to well, so I promised to get back to them with exactly what I meant. Золотокопателка doesn't seem to be a cultural term on the internet.
So recently my MIL ended up seperating from her boyfriend, she was basically living off of his money for her luxury lifestyle.
And one day her boyfriend had enough and left her. This has pissed off my MIL because now she doesn't have the money she wants.
MIL had to ask my husband for money and he straight up told her no, she then asked me I said no to.
We both work but don't have the money that she wants to be given weekley. We would go into debt within a year.
She has started accusing me of being a gold digger, and I don't really work but act like I do, because I spend all day at home. She doesn't seem to understand working from home, while still having young kids.
She has now going about me being a witch and how we 'owe' her. We don't owe her for anything, we both earned our own money for whatever we wanted, and now she says we 'owe' her. Sorry but your luxury lifestyle is not at the top of our priority list lady.
Last night before me and hubby went to bed, MIL Text's him a photo of a house with how much it costs and tells my husband he needs to put a deposit down.
My husband spent spent all morning on the phone to her this morning telling her that we weren't paying for it, she ended up hanging up on him, but not before blaming me again.
I'm going to be honest, I may just be looking for sympathy because I know every response here is going to say 'leave'.
Earlier this year before all the pandemic, I was on an online dating site. I've been in 3 long term relationships, married and divorced, and met someone in a similar situation. I was looking for someone with experience, maturity, and was ready for commitment because I can't emotionally invest in another failed relationship. My profile had my profession and it's common that my profession makes a large amount of money.
She emphasized so much that she hasn't dated in over a decade since a divorce, I was equally honest and let her know I've ended a long term relationship a bit over a year ago. We connected with a lot of hard life experiences we both went through.
She has 4 teenagers and as someone who has long term dated people with kids before, was nervous, but ultimately decided it wasn't a deal breaker. Even more, it was a proven track record of what she went through and what she had to do to make things work, demonstrating exemplary professional backgrounds raising 4 kids.
In my experience, after doing several multi year relationships, dating is much more to the point, we decided to rent together 6 months into dating. Previously she has a house that cost 6k a month, and probably spending close to 5-6k in food and other expenses a month. I knew all of this upfront. I didn't check how much money she made but if she even made 75% of her expenses, we would be in great shape.
Upon moving in together, she isn't making much money. She makes at most 1-2k a month and is constantly claiming that the pandemic ruined her businesses (which she does have a well documented footprint of businesses making quite a bit of money). The problem is I'm stuck with 11k-15k a month bills for about 6 months now and 90% of expenses is her family. I make a bit of money, I'm not making that kind of money especially a single filing tax payer. None of this was given to me before moving in.
First off, combined we are not making enough to cover our expenses. Every month for the last 6 months I've had to withdraw significantly from savings. It causes me so much stress because I've sacrificed a lot of my livelihood and dedication to save this money for future endeavors. She tells me that once the pandemic ends she'll be able to get back into business and not to stress about money. But we are spending 3-4k a month on extras to live a lavish life. I'm not sure if I sho... keep reading on reddit ➡
...then when they realize no woman would give them a second glance, they proceed to throw away their rent money on twitch streamer girls, Onlyfans, camgirls, waifu body pillows, premium porn...oh, the irony.
In one of their fortresses? Mine was killed before I could do anything to him and would really like him back for my feral fort. Thanks in advance. Leave your psn.
