Closer to 80k. Side note: I’ve never understand why LA salaries are lower than NY given the cost of living is essentially the same.

I don’t think the COL is the same... NY and SF are more comparable. LA is definitely cheaper, especially housing.

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
