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