I actually get super uncomfortable when men who appear wealthy hit on me and brag about their money, accomplishments, property they own etc.
I mean, of course be happy with everything you’ve really hard for. You deserve it.
But it doesn’t really work well for me if a guy is trying flirt with me and uses money as a hook. You wouldn’t be able to tell if you met me in person but I grew up super super poor. I’m ok now, I got older, became educated and got a career. But by no means am I living it up.
When a guy starts bragging about their money all it does is make me super uncomfortable because it’s so far removed from the way I was raised. This happened yesterday while I was on a lunch break and two men started to chat me up in a restaurant.
I won’t deny that having money can work as a charm for reeling in many partners in this city. But for many who grew up poor, a potential partner having tons of money can just bring up really fucked up feelings of inadequacy.
