So my girl friend is the sweetest thing on earth. She doesn't ask for much at all. When we go out, usually she will split everything with me, half and half. On special occations (her bday, valentines day) I will pay for everything.
Also, for holidays, she will make me something rather then buy it. Like for example, we had our valentines day date, and she made me this personalized card, all colored with a letter on the inside. I thought it was really cute. And on Christmas, she sat and made me a dream catcher (cause she knows I get frequent bad dreams).
My father seems to think that she is cheap and trying to take my money. He says she should be paying for the entire date, and for holidays, she should be buying me things rather then making me things.
I don't agree with my dad because 1- she is splitting things with me, which makes it fair. 2- I think it takes more effort, and thought to sit and spend time making something then to just go out and buy it.
What do you all think? Is my girlfriend a cheap goldigger or is she totally the opposite?

I think it depends on what type of person you are. are you materialistic? Well you want hee to buy something because to you that measures her affection. If you aren't materialistic you will prefer homemade or DIY things because it's personalized and she took time out to make it and but materials she didn't just walk into the store grab something and paid the guy or girl at the register. I prefer DIY gifts wether Iys cooking me dinner, drawing a picture, painting, building me something that means more to me that a dress thousands of other women have as well0

I agree with you, I would much prefer a simple gift made with care and love rather than the most expensive gift in the shop. The money side of things still pay for her birthday but on holidays split the bills along the lines of who can afford what. What I would suggest is each of you plan and pay for different dates then you have chance to suit the date to your income.0
