Do You Tell Someone You’re Dating How Much You Make
Is it a red flag if the person your dating won’t tell you how much they make a year? A young lady was seeking advice this morning saying that the guy she’s been seeing for the past 6 months and getting serious with thinking that it might be a red flag since he won’t tell her how much he makes a year.
The Mike & Carla Morning Show read the email and wanted to know what other listeners thought about it…opening the text and phone lines, it was surprising the response M&C got. A lot of listeners thought it was a HUGE red flag and wondered what the guy might be hiding! If he’s afraid to tell you how much he makes, what else is he hiding? Are we that paranoid nowadays where we are suspicious of everyone…even those we’ve been dating for 6 months?
Others didn’t think it was that big of a deal. You’ve been with him for 6 months, you can’t tell already that he makes a decent living by what kind of car he drives, where he lives, how he lives and the fact that he always has money to go out?
The M&C Morning Show got both sides of the situation, but some even said, if this woman is worried about how much he makes, maybe she’s not that worried about love, but more into the lifestyle this guy can afford! Is she a “gold digger” or just worried about “their” future together as she did say, they are on the brink of getting serious?
Either way, what was it like in your relationship? Did you make it a big deal to find out how much he or she made if you were going to continue to see each other? Was that a red flag if you asked the person personal questions and they refused to answer? There’s a lot more to dating now a days and it’s clear that more and more people are taking precautions.
