It was always a challenge to keep up with my girlfriend’s lifestyle. She was always so keen to have the latest branded items and to dine at high end restaurants.
I tried my best to keep up with her wants and needs
I knew that I had to make an effort to impress her and treat her to the best of things. I was willing to put in the extra effort to make sure she was happy and that she knew that I valued her.
At first, it was still manageable. I was able to buy her the branded stuff she wanted and take her to the restaurants she wanted to go to.
It was a way for me to show her that I cared and wanted to make her happy.
It became hard to catch up after some time
Unfortunately, after a while, I started to realise that the money I was spending on our dates was taking a toll on my finances. I was starting to feel the strain of not being able to keep up with her lifestyle.
I had to start cutting back on other things in order to make sure I could continue to treat her to the things she wanted.
It started to get to a point where I was feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. I felt like I was constantly trying to keep up with her and it was becoming too much.
I tried to talk to her about it but she didn’t seem to understand. She kept insisting that she wanted to go to the fanciest restaurants and buy the most expensive items.
Broke up with her to save my wallet
Eventually, I had to make the difficult decision to end things between us. I knew that it was the only way I could get out of this unsustainable lifestyle and be able to take care of myself financially.
I had to let go of the girl I thought I was in love with.
I still think about her often and wonder what could have been if I had been able to keep up with her lifestyle. But I know that it was the right decision to make at the time.
I am now more financially stable and I am able to take care of myself.
It’s a shame that it had to end this way, but I’m glad that I was able to make the right decision for myself.
