Compulsive Liar Husband Fuming When Wife Calls Him Out In Front Of His Coworkers

Being married to someone, you kind of become a team, especially in social gatherings. You are in charge of taking careof each other, reading the other person's expression to see when they want to go home, and helping to make the other person look good in front of their friends. Although teasing is a form of flirting, nobody wants to be humiliated by their significant other in public. However, if you're some kind of compulsive liar, there is simply no way you can expect your partner to keep up with your literal BS. Here's an idea, maybe try honesty?

Woman Takes Advantage Of Stranger's Offer To Cover Groceries, Tries To Buy Expensive Wine

Generosity is undoubtedly a positive trait to have. Those that hoard everything to themselves and never offer help to others tend to be cold individuals. Help can come in many forms as well, it doesn't have to be financial. If you don't have the funds to offer to pay for something important, you can offer to help them find someone, or be there for them as they go through a tough time. In the end, it usually feels good to help someone as well, especially if they didn't ask. But what doesn't feel good is being taken advantage of, boy is that an uncomfortable feeling.

Manipulative Guy Expects Girlfriend Of 3 Months To Lend Him $5000

Every relationship goes at its own pace, and sometimes one side feels like they're ready to take the next step before the other, whatever that 'next step' may be. As long as there is strong communication between both of you this discrepancy doesn't have to be detrimental, however, every so often it is clear that one person is completely living in a world that doesn't exist.

Plus, requesting thousands of dollars after mere months of dating sounds more like manipulation than a measure of intimacy. But don't take our word for it, what do you all think?

Preachy BF Hates On GF For Spending Her Money On Vacation Instead Of Charity

Some people aren't meant to be in a relationship, no matter how hard they try to make it work. Reddit's "Am I the A$$hole?" subreddit always has the juiciest real-life drama, from couples to families to coworkers. This weekend, we're studying the dynamics between a boyfriend and girlfriend who clearly have different priorities than one another. The boyfriend is all about sharing his wealth, and while the girlfriend definitely appreciates his generosity, she also understands the value of treating yourself once in a while. Ain't that the truth. When she booked a flight to Hawaii for vacation with her family, he called her "privileged" and said she should be donating that money to charity. Sounds like he's a wee bit jealous, don't you think? Scroll down for more context, and make your own judgment on this preachy BF.

Cheap Guy Demands That His GF Pays Half Of His Rent When She Comes To Visit

Long-distance relationships can be extremely difficult for a multitude of reasons. Most of your fights are solely about the distance but you find yourselves bickering about pointless sh*t regardless. It takes a strong couple to deal with all of the obstacles. There needs to be compassion, patience, and hella compromise. It's completely normal to split payments in a committed relationship, but when you live in different locations, splitting something such as rent isn't such a reasonable request...

Rich Guy Takes GF On Luxurious Family Trip, Expects Her To Pay For Half Of Everything

Money isn't always a sensitive topic. People who have a lot of it don't tend to get triggered when wages begin to be discussed. However, if you've ever lived paycheck to paycheck you know the anxiety that immediately follows the mentioning of finances. It's so easy to hide as well, money struggles. There are a million excuses to get out of some kind of event you can't pay for, especially during this past year. But if you love someone, and they live a more luxurious life, sometimes you pretend to have a little more than you actually do because, well, you're in love and you want to spend time with them... The only thing is that if they've always been wealthy, they may not always understand that kind of sacrifice.

We all need a source of income to survive, but there comes a time where jobs are so bad that they're not even worth the money. If possible, it's best to get that cash flow somewhere else.

Salty Woman Tries To Shame Her Friend For Having Pricey Engagement Ring

For the most part, money should not get in the way of friendship. Two people with drastically different incomes can still have a lot in common, and hang out without their disparities getting in the way. But jealously is toxic, and can definitely spoil a perfectly good friendship. Whether or not somebody 'deserves' the money they have, there's nothing you can do about it. They are just wealthy and therefore have a greater disposable income. If you have an issue with somebody spending their own money... You kind of have to get over it, it's a part of life. There will always be someone with more money than you and somebody else with less, that's just the way it is.

Insecure Boyfriend Gaslights His Girlfriend After She Earns More Money Than Him

Financial discrepancies in relationships can be quite difficult to maneuver around sometimes. Does somebody pay more rent? Does every meal get split 50/50, or perhaps 60/40? Obviously, when you're truly in love with someone, these minor details wouldn't get in the way so much and cause too many issues. As long as both people make a living, money is just money after all.

But what happens when it is the woman who makes more money? Oh no! How could it be? She must have 'cheated the system...'

Guy Refuses To Buy His Girlfriend Diet Coke Until She Gets A Job

Being in a relationship can be very difficult sometimes. You want the best for their partner and you want to support them unconditionally, but they may not have the drive to go after what is good for them. At some point it becomes very difficult helping someone who won't try and help themselves.

On the 'Am I the A-Hole' page on Reddit, and guy is asking if he is the A-Hole because he is done giving his girlfriend free-bees because she won't try and find a job after years of being unemployed. Is this the best way to motivate her? Who knows? But how long can you support a fully functioning adult before you go insane or broke... or both.

Father Demands Babysitter To Cough Up $2,200 To Replace Guitar Which His Child Broke

As a teen, babysitting is one of the best gigs you can get. Kids can be super entertaining, and you legitimately get paid to let them watch TV, or play Minecraft, or make TikToks — whatever kids are up to these days. It's always the absolute best when the kids are already asleep when you show up. From that point on it's just Netflix and snacks. (Much better than Netflix and chill)

Obviously, it's not all sunshine as daisies though. Some kids can be utter nightmares and really try to test your patience. But what's even worse than bratty kids are unreasonable parents.

Woman Refuses To Provide Inheritance Money To Sister Who Needs Post-Cancer Surgery

You can find a whole lotta love within families, but you could also find a whole lotta drama in 'em too. Some families are super wholesome, some are batsh*t crazy, and some fall somewhere in the middle. On Reddit's infamous 'Am I The A**hole' thread, we're analyzing quite the complicated family this week. The story begins with two sisters - one a mother, the other one childless - plus she's never having on planning kids and frankly isn't a fan of children at all, including her sister's kids. To make a long story short, the sister's parents only allowed access to the inheritance money to their kids that had children, so when they passed on, the childless sister received none of the inheritance money. She asked her sister to lend her some money for surgery after her battle with cancer, alas she's not exactly in a giving mood considering her sister's nasty attitude towards her children.
