Me and my girl have been together a year but hit troubled waters when I lost my job, though I kept traveling to see her. She even visited me in my country, including a romantic trip to Paris. I borrowed the money for the trip and she appreciated it.
I finally get a job. At the same time, her mother falls ill. I squeeze out $1,500 to help but was otherwise broke. That’s when our relationship exploded. She said I was filled with “empty promises” and broke up with me. She called me a liar and a loser. I tell her that I can help again but she says it’s not about the money. Do you think she is a gold digger? If not, what should I do to win her back?
Dear Richie Rich,
This woman seems to be more in love with your wallet than your heart. She isn’t very understanding of your circumstances and expects you to take care of her and her family regardless of your finances, or else. As for “empty promises,” your job loss led you to those broken promises. You didn’t expect to be unemployed. In this economy, millions of people understand this. Yet your girlfriend can’t understand that you can’t send her money whenever she wants or “needs”? Read the rest of Sujeiry’s advice on LOOP21.
