Guys, would you offer to pay your girl friend's bills if she needed or just to help out? Some women allow the men they are in relationships with to give them money for things and also pay a bill or two. How many of you would if you aren't living with your girl friend?
Voted yes, but I dislike the wording. It depends on how long we've been together and what the bill is. If it's a water bill or electricity, then yeah, I'll help her out. If it's for cable or internet, then no. There's also the factor on if she is working or not. People in relationships should help each other out, I think, but I don't want to be taken advantage of.
I don't live with my girlfriend and yes I would help her if she needed it. I doubt she ever would as she is good with her money. However, if for some reason she required help due to unforeseen circumstances, I would help her!
Generally no, depends on the situation tho and how long we have been dating. If something happened that made her lose a lot of money suddenly, like maybe she totaled someones car and she was totally broke because of it, I wouldn't mind paying for some of her things to help her out (if we had already dated for a longer time)
If she just expects me to pay for her shit for nothing, then yea I'm out.
I am not supposed to pay for her stuff. But if she needs me to, I would probably make a deal with her like she would cook for me or sexual favors, clean my place, etc. Something that I know she could easily do and won't cost her a thing and at the same time pleases me. I think it can be fun and beneficial for both.
Depends what kind of relationship it was at the time. I'd lend my girlfriend money happily if I trust her to pay it back and if I can afford it myself but I'm not throwing money at her just because she's my girlfriend. Any women I'd date wouldn't ask me to do so either.
With the age of "equality", why do I have to foot the bill? It's not my bill, it's HER bill. I'm not buying the chivalry nonsense. Same goes with student loans and such. No way. That's her responsibility. She is an adult.
The only time a man should be helping with the bills is if you two live together and share expenses. Anything else is not an obligation and if he chooses to do so, she better be beyond thankful and go the extra mile for him, because few people would pay for her shit otherwise.
If I desperately needed help I would ask if he could, if not I can always ask my sister. I just would feel terrible and horrible for asking though 😐 it's not him who put me in this position. So my boyfriend would be the last (and I mean my last resort!)
If it was the other way around, and my boyfriend sled me, I'd give it to him within a heart beat. I'd like to think that if I were ever down that path and I turned to him, that he would help me also. But I know how much guys don't directly ask. I would just willingly give him half here and there because if I'm at his place I would use the gas/electricity/water etc so it wouldn't hurt to pitch in.
I don't think a boyfriend or girlfriend should be paying the others bills at all until you're living together, at which point things should be split fairly even unless there's a kid and one of you stays home to care for it.
