So I'm 23 and been living on my own for 5 years now. I had time to fail, step back on my feet and learn from those mistakes.
The problematic right now I think isn't the fact that I put too much importance on money but more likely that my girlfriend doesn't put enough importance to it...
She's been living on her own for only 4 months; she still lives paycheck to paycheck to pay her bills and her rent at that point. She has parents she can ask money to, I don't so I have to work my a** off instead.
I'm an entrepreneur too so money, in fact IS important to my business because without it I wouldn't be able to thrive in what I do.
**What do you think, is money important to you and what should I tell her to make her understand my point of view?**

I don't think she's explaining herself well maybe. Maybe she means to say you have too much love for money. Some people are too into it imho. We all have that buddy that see's every aspect of life is a way to profit off of it. Flipping baseball hat, shoes, cinder blocks they found in an alley, broken down cars, homemade sandwiches for a week. Granted they claim because it's their side business... it's something more. It gets annoying.
Be honest here, how often do you talk to her about finances? At your age is should never happen unless you're married or have a kid together.
Also, most 23yo live paycheck to paycheck man. You're just the exception.0
