Did She Dump Him Because He's Broke

Name: john | | Location: nyc , ny |Question: So here is a question. I dated a girl in New York a few years ago. She was a girl who worked in a similar field, I was attracted to, and we did a lot of fun stuff together. She was perfect for me. I broke up with her for a number of reasons, because she wouldn't leave New York, because she didn't want to spend time with my family even though I spent time with hers, and because I felt like our relationship could only be sustained with a certain level of money, I am not talking about a lot of money, just that the amount I made was not enough. For example, I felt a lot of financial pressure, when we went away together she wanted to do things I felt I couldn't afford, I felt like for the relationship to continue we had to eat out a certain amount.

Worse, they hate hearing every innermost thought that we have when those thoughts mention "marriage" or "Prince Charming" or "The One." I once said I was smitten with a guy after a first date only to have our second date broken because he admitted to reading my blog and freaking out. Smitten. All I said was that I was smitten. He ran so fast he left skid marks on my blog. You'd think, being that I've immersed myself in this little dating world and positioned myself as an "expert" (I'm not) that I'd know that blogging about a man and getting all gushy after a couple dates is the kiss of death.

Women Are Dumb, If You Didn't Know

The world must really believe women are a bunch of nincompoops.  At least, everyone seems to enjoy implying we are. This week, I discovered TWITS (Teenage Women In their Thirties), a new term for women who shun marriage and kids in favor of a social life and personal freedom.  Then Time posted a story about how the South Korean government in Seoul is painting parking spaces pink and repaving streets so high heels don’t get stuck in them, all in an effort to make working women happy. Then I read a headline from Reuters declaring, “Crisis pushes men to therapy, women to handbags.”  The story suggested the economy is stopping men from buying luxury items like watches, while women are scampering through Louis Vuitton and Hermes boutiques like kids in the candy aisle at Walmart.
