WHY We’re ac­tu­ally okay With YOU Making More Money than We Do

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Love, Lust & Other Stuff -

"Most women think we would feel threat­ened or emas­cu­lated if our girl­friends make more money than we do. Lit­tle do they know, many Pi­noy men fan­ta­size about hav­ing a sugar mommy—like a 40-year-old woman with her own house and a nice car, who can take us out, feed us and teach us the ways of the world (and the bed­room). We're also fine with hugely suc­cess­ful girl­friends the same age as us—as long as we're happy with our own ca­reers. There was a time my girl­friend was ac­tu­ally earn­ing more than I did. As much as we could, we would split the bill. Some­times she would of­fer to treat me to din­ner or a movie, and I was okay with it. What we wouldn’t like is if we were be­tween jobs or go­ing through a fi­nan­cial rough patch, and our girl­friends said, “Poor you, let me buy you some­thing nice.” We don’t want any pity. It’s really more of a self-re­spect thing. If a guy is con­fi­dent in him­self and his ca­reer, it doesn’t mat­ter if his girl­friend is richer or more suc­cess­ful."
