Quote from Ms Petite 93
We sometimes get into arguments when I tell him my parents may be hesitant on their little girl dating someone that's not at the same pay level to not carry the weight.
This statement, in particular, I do think is "mean." Stay with him or don't stay with him, but it seems pretty passive aggressive to me to say
to him that your parents are concerned about him dating you because of his financial status (which, of course, anyone with any sense recognizes as you saying that you
are concerned about dating him because you make more money than him). I was in a serious relationship for many years with someone I had met through work, someone who was a tech (working his way through college at the time) and I was an RN, and I made a heck of a lot more money than him. We both knew that, but I certainly didn't rub his nose in it or use that as a weapon!
If money is what's important to you, then cut this guy loose so he can find someone who will actually appreciate him and value him for who he is, not how much money he does or doesn't make.
