Singapore — A girlfriend unsure about whether her boyfriend will eventually stop living frugally raised her concerns on if he would even allow her to buy a piece of cake she was craving.
In an anonymous confession to popular Facebook page NUSWhispers, the girlfriend wrote: “My boyfriend told me that his family isn’t well off since he was young”.
She explained that when they go out on dates, while he would make an effort to pay for the food, they always try to keep the bill under S$30. She also said that they would sometimes split the bill, or she would pay for the food.
However, she wrote that her boyfriend earned at least 40 per cent more than she did.
“I start to worry that he will not be willing to spend a bit more even on daily necessities in future, and let’s say probably a piece of cake if I crave for it, even though I myself can afford it”.
Asking netizens for advice on her concerns, she added that she still thought of her boyfriend as a “nice guy” and wrote that she did indeed see a future with him.
“How should I discuss this concern with him or self talk to not mind this matter so much?”, she asked. Netizens were fair in their responses and urged her to talk to her boyfriend.
In another case where a girlfriend is having second thoughts about her boyfriend because of the amount he earns, a 23-year-old girl said that she expects her man to be taking home about S$15,000 a month.
Asking netizens for advice on anonymous confessions page NUSWhispers, the girl wrote that her 37-year-old squeeze was “only” at the executive level, earning S$4,500 a month.
“I expect him to earn around $15k a month for a director-level position. At his age, he should be a GM/Director by now but he is just a lowly legal counsel with low pay working for an SME business with little to no benefits”, she wrote.
