Ugh… I do not want to bash your friend (Okay, maybe I do…) but THIS is why some men are closed off, frustrated with dating or just flat out check out. And good ones.
I am a self sustaining woman. Completely. As a matter of fact, I am very leary of men who do not make a comparable salary to mine. I took care of my ex-husband for years. I’m not doing that any more. I’ve been the gold giver and it sucks.
I don’t need or want a guy with toys and flashy things. I don’t need a guy to buy me dinner. But, it sure would be nice for someone to spring for a nice dinner. But, ladies like this drive men away from it. Meh.
