I am dating a girl who’s from a pretty wealthy family. She is a great person but her norm of life puts a lot of pressure on me (e.g. only fly first class and only stay at luxury hotels). I am financially alright but just can’t afford that kind of lifestyle. Has anyone run into this kind of issue before? What do you do?

It’s your bank account. My significant other threw a fit when I didn’t buy a $1.2K present for a birthday when I was 22. Is what it is.

Explain your situation and propose alternatives. I mean don’t stay at a crappy hotel but there’s a difference between say a Westin which is affordable and nice vs. a four seasons.

Unless it’s a resort where you’ll be staying I never understood the value in super expensive hotels. 80% of the time I spend in them I’m asleep. They all look the same when you’re asleep. Westin has a good mattress and that’s what counts 🙂

My spouse and I met at a rave 7 years ago. At the time we were dabbling in various recreational drugs (acid, mushrooms, weed, k, molly, alcohol etc), but over the years we've slowly cut back drug use.

I've always been v connected to the rave scene, and before I ever tried drugs I would attend events sober. These days, w my career and where I'm at in life, I'm back to going sober.

2months ago, he decided to white knuckle sobriety (except alcohol 🙄) and has become v judgemental of ravers contd
