A story was seen online where a guy claimed that the reason that he was dumped by his ex-girlfriend because she thinks that he is a good for nothing and financially poor.
Here is how the story goes
I was dumped by my ex girlfriend sometime in the middle of last year which put an end to our 6 years of relationship.
For context, I am 33 years of age and she is 25.
We have been talking of getting a house and to settle down for quite a while ever since I got my first ever proper job two years into the relationship when I was 29.
She was 21 at the time and studying in University while doing part time work.
To come out with enough money to get a house and for our wedding when the time came, we decided to save money together by opening up a joint account where we each would put a sum of money in every month.
We had agreed to put 20% of our salary in per month which came up to about $800 for me monthly and $400 from her monthly, something she and I agreed that it was comfortable enough for us to put in every month.
The plan was going well for a good few months till we had about $10,000 in our savings and that’s when things started to turn sour.
I started to develop an interest for online gaming and had most of my other 60% of my salary (since 20% also goes to CPF) on getting the best gaming equipment to have an edge over other gamers while gaming and had not much money left in my personal bank account.
This was when I started to withdraw money from the joint account.
To me, it is my share and I had all the rights to withdraw my share if I do not have enough in my own personal bank account.
Afterall, it is money that I have contributed so there is definitely no wrong in what I am doing.
She checked the account one day and flipped at me and asked to see mine personal account and when she saw that there was less than $500 inside, she called me ‘useless’ and ‘poor’ and decided to leave me.
I really don’t understand what is wrong with her.
I always thought that she just wants a simple life and will be contented as long as I can afford to pay for her daily meals and not let her go hungry.
