    Just curious about different opinions and real life experiences with the role of finances in relationships.

    I'm in college, so, if there was to be a "Less Fortunate" person based on finances, it'd be me. . . .

    My dear sweet child, that's what I do! It's what I live for. To help poor unfortunate gay folk, like yourself! Poor souls with no one else to turn to.

    Aren't all people less fortunate in one way or another? No two people are ever on equal footing in the relationship department. Why should that affect your emotional/physical compatibility?

    Depends. Is he less fortunate than me because he works in a blue collar profession or is a teacher or something along that? Sure.

    Is he less fortunate because he does a lot of drugs and doesnt work? Probably not.

    Money isnt that important, I figure that after I get out of school and start working I should be able to make enough to support someone, but I wouldnt want to support someone who wasnt doing anything.

    Now is he less fortunate because he spends all his time and money working on his sexy body...thats a maybe...

    Wait are you talking about "fortunate" like luck or money?

    If you're talking about money, and if the love is there yeah I'd date him. As long as he pays for himself the majority of the time and there is true love, I don't see the problem.

    If you're talking about luck, then I don't really see the role it plays in a relationship or life. Everyone has their ups and downs.

    You should find someone who likes you for who you are, period.

    Some people place a high priority on being able to partake in similar activities like travelling and fine dining. It's their choice, and a completely valid one at that.

    Others may have different priorities and are fine with dating someone who makes a lot less. I'm fairly new out of college and so I'm working on making some more paper, but in the meantime if I meet someone who makes a lot more than I do, I just try to set things straight and find common ground. If you approach it correctly, there shouldn't have to be anything demeaning about the situation. Just do the best you can and find someone who recognizes and appreciates that. ;-)

    And hey, they say that abs are a poor man's Bentley, and that's exactly what I'm hoping RJ can help out with hahaha.

    No. I have worked too hard to build up my life and career - I can't be with somebody who doesn't have the same drive.

    However I have the opposite problem. My bf is wealthier than me and it makes me uncomfortable. But it seems weird to break up with someone because they have a nice trust find.

    Same, if you mean born less fortunate, definitely, I love a guy not his wallet. But if you mean currently less fortunate, it doesn't get poorer than 0.

    I used to date an older Chinese-American guy who was 48, rich, loaded, social/worker lawyer, he treated me pretty badly. The other rich guy was just wanting to fuck around, having me as a boy toy. icon_confused.gif Money isn't everything in a relationship, I've been rich, poor, average and in between. Sometimes, it's a problem, argument over money/finances.

    My last 2 guys dates/crushes, 1 is a Latin/White German/Psy major sophomore at UCLA, broke as hell. The other a cutie blond 22 yo struggling dancer/waiter/actor from Ohio living in L.A. I think as time goes on, I'm getting a bit older now, I tend to like younger guys and I couldn't really care less about his $$$ bank accounts, he'd need to have the drive, passions and ambitions though for his goals. As long as he loves me, we could be starving, we could be homeless, we could be broke oh yeah........ perfect Justin Bieber's song post !!! icon_lol.gif

    My boyfriends and partners have ALWAYS been takers, not givers.
    It's mostly my fault.
    I'm way too generous.
