If it's only a few hundred bucks and you're obviously good for it, I really don't see the problem with borrowing it nor do I understand why your GF wouldn't be comfortable with it.

Well; I going to work both holidays (new years and Christmas)
And they pay double time and a half.

And I also picked up an additional over time shift at time and a half pay.

So I should be good. Don't think I'll need it.
I just need to be extra smart with my money

She knows I'm good for it; she just feels weird about letting others borrow money.

Idk man. I didn't want to push it or pressure it. She seemed uncomfortable.

Which sucks because I'm ALWAYS PAYING when we go out.


And no I don't have a coke problem. A car payment which seems worse. Just as expensive without a "high" lol

This is unacceptable. We're in the year 2012 homie, women have wanted to be equal for a damn long time now. I like doing favours for people who deserve it but if the status quo was me having to pay everytime we go out then I definitely wouldn't be cool with it.

I would suggest you curtail your expenditures. living beyond your means making 50k as a single dude aged 22 is pretty ridiculous. Stop eating out and drinking out as much? What are your bare bones necessary monthly expenditures? Everything above and beyond that needs to be cut out.

Default Re: Borrowing money from your girlfriend..

I'm 23 making over 50k, but my experience is different. I bought a house and i live in the midwest so expenses aren't that much. Before i received the loan i was always lending money to family members and a few friends but it was just 50-100 bucks and i always collected, i don't lend anybody a huge amount, not because of trust, its just a rule i set when i got burned a few years back. Now i became a huge penny pincher. F#ck it, nobody will pay your bills so you have to be smart and keep from spending. i live alone so food isn't that much and i have no kids. I do have a GF but she knows how i am so if your going to be that dude lending and borrowing make sure you wont end up homeless or a hole you cant get out of.

Default Re: Borrowing money from your girlfriend..

So, she would feel "uncomfortable" with letting you borrow money that you can easily pay back later....but...


She isnt uncomfortable with you paying every time you two go out.


She isnt uncomfortable with accepting 5,000 dollars from her mother as a damn gift.


Nor is she uncomfortable with you buying her a pricey bag for xmas?



Note the trend bro?

You are sucker bro. I pay a lot of the time for my GF and I, but she is always trying to help out one way or another. I would say that our relationship is like 70/30 right now. She just graduated college and I am sure that's going to go up to 60/40 or probably 50/50. She loves treating me just as much as I love treating her.

EDIT: Forgot to comment on the OPs question. As far as borrowing money, if this chick is who you plan to marry, then this shouldn't be an issue. With my girl (whom I plan to marry), neither her nor I would hesitate to let each other borrow money if we needed to. If she really loves you, she should not feel uncomfortable letting you borrow money, otherwise there seems to be two things going on here:

1) She is taking advantage of you (you say you pay for everything and buy her expensive shit).
2) She doesn't trust you

I'm one of those guys that don't ask nobody for anything. I prefer to die of hunger than ask somebody (even family with the exception of my dad) for food. So yeah I would never ask a girlfriend for money, but I don't see anything wrong with it as long as you pay her back...
