Going overseas for a holiday or staying in Singapore for a hotel stay is something most people don’t do on a regular basis and regular hotel stays are often done by the rich.
But a man got himself into debt after he decided to comply with his girlfriend’s monthly request to stay in a hotel.
Here is the story:
I have been with my girlfriend for about 6 months now. She lives with her parents. We work at a company together.
Im a junior executive earning about $2.5k and she’s a temp worker. Anyways, she gets paid $10 an hour. We don’t get paid that good but enough to keep us going I guess. But I’ve started to notice that she spends alot of money on unnecessary things.
She has thousands in credit card debt. I’ve told her she shouldn’t use her credit cards so much because her payments are high and she’ll never stop owing money. She said she knows. But she continues to spend a lot.
So she sometimes rely on me to pay for stuff like meals or movies.
Here is the deal breaker, she demands that I go for monthly hotel staycations with her to relieve her stress.
I don’t mind if its a hotel 81 kind of budget but she demands for minimum Pan Pacific Hotel, she makes no effort to pay for the hotel and demands me to pay several hundred a night just for some hotel stay.
I am stuck as I really liked her but most of my friends told me that I will regret it and I will soon hate her for the way she behaves and spend money.
How can I convince my girlfriend to not so much of my money on hotels and instead just go for a nice meal?
Or should I just call it off with her.
