A young man divided Redditors when he revealed that he told his girlfriend he can’t afford to be her sugar daddy. Things only got worse when he told her what he thought of her friends. Here is the full story.
He’s Dating Above His Pay Grade
OP is a 27-year-old man who has been dating a 23-year-old teacher for a couple of years.
He considers both his girlfriend and her circle of friends to be absolutely beautiful women.
They Rub Elbows with the Upper Crust
Most of her friends are completely single and like to hit the upscale party scene, where rich men shower them with gifts and affection.
OP’s girlfriend wants many of those same things, though she has been true to him so far.
He’s Still Making His Way
OP makes a very good living, but he’s still early in his career.
So his income doesn’t quite measure up to some of the high-rollers his girlfriend’s buddies like to hang out with.
He Has a Plan
Besides, OP wants to retire young so he can enjoy as much of life as possible. That means he doesn’t spend all of his money, but saves a good hunk of it every paycheck.
And He’s off to a Great Start
He’s done well enough in his career so far that OP has been able to pay off a large portion of his mortgage.
And he came out of college without any debt, so he’s in good financial shape overall.
But He Still Knows How to Have Fun
He still likes to have his fun, and he thinks he’s pretty generous with his money when it comes to his friends.
He and his girlfriend have a trip to Jamaica in the works, and that’s all happening on his dime.
It’s Not Enough for Her
The problem is that OP’s girlfriend constantly compares the things she has and does to the lifestyle her friends are living.
She wants the constant lavish gifts and fancy dinners that they’re always telling her about, too.
She Lets Him Know About It
All that has led to a lot of tension between OP and his girlfriend.
She constantly throws all the fancy things her friends have in his face, which hurts his feelings and makes him think she views him as inadequate.
He Was No One’s Sugar Daddy
One day when his girlfriend was laying it on thick about one of her friends, OP had finally had enough.
He told his girlfriend that he could not afford to be her sugar daddy just to keep up with the older men her friends ran around with.
They Couldn’t Take Care of Themselves
That offended OP’s girlfriend, who said that her friends weren’t like that and they all worked for what they had.
OP nearly laughed at that and pointed out that none of them had jobs that could support their current lifestyles.
She Couldn’t Even Afford the Hubcaps!
OP reminded his girlfriend that one of her friends drove a $100K car yet worked only part time as a hostess in a restaurant!
Oh No He Didn’t!
That really set OP’s girlfriend off, and she read between the lines.
She accused him of calling her friends sex workers and passing judgment on them.
She Couldn’t Take the Truth
OP promised that he was not making any accusations but just pointing out the women couldn’t afford their lifestyles on their own.
When he asked her to explain how her friends paid for their luxuries, his girlfriend turned the conversation on him.
What Did He Think of HER?
His girlfriend wanted to know if OP considered her a “kept” woman, too, since he made six times as much as she did and paid for everything.
She Was Different than the Rest
OP assured his girlfriend that he respected her and was proud to be dating a teacher.
But he stood by his point that he can’t afford to give her everything her friends have.
Can He Keep Her Satisfied?
Now, OP and his girlfriend aren’t talking much, and he’s worried about whether he will be able to keep her happy moving forward.
