Money is a PILLAR in someone’s life so we HAVE to figure out how to manage money. Sarah’s first experience of dating and finances happened when she was 27 and living in New York City. She had been in a relationship with a man for three years and really saw a future with him. Money and finances were never a concern in their relationship because they never TALKED about it. They had a long distance relationship so one day he calls her and spills EVERYTHING about where he is at financially. He proceeds to tell Sarah that he’s in a lot of financial trouble, he hasnn’t been able to pay his bills for months, and then asks her if she would be willing to loan him money so he could pay for his bills. Sarah was SHOCKED. He then made her feel obligated and pressured to give to him because he said he would give her the money if she was in this situation. She really thought through it for the next day and what’s interesting is that she would usually seek guidance from mentors or her parents when faced with a big decsion like this but she called NOBODY. Why? Because she was ashamed and embarrassed for him and for herself.
