Do you avoid talking about income with potential partners?

I dislike the idea that someone would choose to be with me or not based on income. Do you intentionally avoid the subject of income or do those of you who are doing well consider it fine if this increased your chances? It seems like a hollow victory to me.

  • In general western society it's considered rude to discuss your income; however, that being said... many a many men I've dated are quick to disclose their finances to me. Personally, I find it awkward.

    • It is entirely up to your percetiveness just like all things in life. Monitor her spending habits. What does she wear, carry and what kind of behaviors does she exhibit all tell you how a person is. One can't hide their true nature.

    • That's true I suppose. Thanks.
