I’ve been dating someone for a couple months now and, like a lot of people, he is experiencing financial difficulties. He just recently began sharing these financial problems with me and I know it’s the reason why he’s been asking me out less than when we first started dating.
I’m not a very experienced dater so I’m unsure as to how to deal with this situation. I like this man very much, I enjoy his company and he is incredibly kind. I am fine having dates that are economical and have let him know this. However, I believe him to have a strong ‘male gene’ when it comes to who the provider should be.
How do I deal with this without making him feel as though I think less of him?
