We are one of the people D1 pointed out. All major expenses like rent, travel etc are % of income based. Minor expenses like grocery, eating out etc is 50/50

Sure, unless they have much more expensive tastes than me. In that case we may need to have a convo if my financials mean I can’t match their lifestyle.

I have couple friends who do it on a % of their income basis, not split half way.

I'm (27F) making 4x more than my partner (33M). How do you deal with significant income differences in your relationships?

I'm dating a guy and we just had a serious discussion about our finances. I just learned that I earn 4x more than him (200K). We're based in Portland, OR and he's a bank teller and I'm a designer fortunate to be paid SF rates. I'd like to get married and have kids one day and not feel the pressure of being the breadwinner. How have others managed a similar situation?

Meeting people while in consulting and in your early 30s...? Possible?

Where do people meet people to date these days? I've been a widow for nearly 11 years. I've tried basically every dating site on the market (other than tinder, mainly b/c my 24 year old son is on there and just nah). I'm not much of a drinker, so I don't go to bars. I literally haven't been in the dating scene other than a few dates here and there in the last 7 years. Suggestions?

I am getting so many mixed signals from a guy I am dating. We have been dating for about 2 months; the last date we went on, he told me how I was beautiful inside and out, how he loved my eyes, how the first time we met he couldn’t wait to kiss me, he was asking me if I was still dating other people or not, and even went out of his way to drive me home (like an hour drive). But then he mentioned during the night how he didn’t want to ‘lose me’ if we didn’t end up together- that he didn’t want to

I’ve been dating a guy for couple weeks now. He asks me out every weekend but only text me one or two days before the date and after the date.

Or is he just bored and want to have a person to hangout with?

I am seeing this girl for 6 months. The first four months we talked weekly. I’ve asked her out twice, but she either flaked or has no time. Afterwards, she turned cold for a while.

Dating a girl - been going great. Suddenly she is saying there’s too much going on in her life (her mum is ill, doing dental training) to go to the next level, but that I’m a great guy anyone would be lucky to bag etc. At the same time she says she wants to stay in touch. I said for her to tell me if she’s not interested and we can leave it - she told me she is interested but the timing is wrong. I said ok let’s leave it - she said it’s my choice (despite inertia from her).what to make of this?
