We have been in a relationship for 3 months and have had sex.
We are both graduate students but she is at a better university, so she earns a bit more than me - around $1,000 more.
I don't really understand what rule says that I am supposed to spend money on her... I mean it's been 3 months...
She's a hopeless romantic though and might be brainwashed by romantic movies.
Is it time to find someone better?

Spending money on someone doesn't show them that you love them. It just shows them that you are willing to spend money on them. Unfortunately some people equate money spent with love.
I don't see how it's 'traditional' to be raised to think a person needs to spend money on you to think that you are loved. That to me is materialistic. There are so many things that can be done to show you love someone without spending a dime.
- Calling someone
- Helping them with chores
- Visiting them
- Going on a walk with them
- Hold their hand
- Kiss them
- Hug them
- Cook dinner for them
- Telling them you love them
So many of these are low cost or even free. I think your girlfriend needs to get her priorities straightened out. So many people will spend money on you, but not treat a person right. It's far better to find someone who is willing to treat you right than someone who is only able to spend money on you.1

Just get a sugar baby who is a 10/10 and kick the girlfriend to the curb dude. You practically have an escort.
