It really doesn’t matter to her that her boyfriend mentioned they can’t go out on dates or on camping trips anymore because it’s enough for her to just spend time with him no matter what they do.
The one thing that is making her upset here is the thought that they might keep on having a problem with how she spends her money.
“My focus is my career these next few years, I’m still saving about a third of my paycheck, and I do like to treat myself to a vacation or two a year, keeping it less than $1000 combined, because I can afford it,” she said.
“This trip was a celebration, and it does not feel very good to think you can’t tell your partner about your success and rewards without resentment. I give him as much emotional support I as can and emphasize that money or a job doesn’t matter to me. My friends and family think he’s great and don’t view him any differently. But he’s deeply insecure about this.”
Although she admits her boyfriend is not necessarily doing something wrong by sharing his feelings, she can’t help but wonder how they’re supposed to be together if he’s going to continue to be envious of the success in her life.
Her career is so very important to her, and she does not want to have anything get in the way of her and her success. She’s wondering if there’s something that she can do to make her boyfriend feel more accepting of everything or if this is basically the end of their compatibility.
