Scared To Have That Money Talk? How To Navigate The Thing EVERYONE Struggles With

It’s that awkward moment at the end of the date… The bill. Should you reach for your card or let the man pay? Or maybe you’re finally living with a fantastic partner, except you can’t talk about that one thing — MONEY! Money matters can be confusing, and now even more so with many women out-earning their boyfriends and husbands. This week, Lisa talks about how not to make money a sore subject in your relationship, instead allowing it to bring in openness and generosity, and to let your man feel like he is a superhero! You’ll learn the biggest mistakes most women make when it comes to money in dating, how to keep your boundaries, and how to shift your mindset on what you owe a man when he does pay the bill.

What You’ll Hear In This Episode:

  • Who should pay for dinner during the courting period? Should it still be the man, even though at least 33% of women (35 and younger) are now out-earning their partners?
  • What are some red flags that pop up about money in your early dating period that you should keep an eye on?
  • Are your expectations too high around a man and his money?
  • Lisa shares how she shifted her mindset around feeling obligated to go further than she wanted to after a man paid. If a man is willing to take you to dinner, you have the obligation to be generous and kind, but not much more!
  • Whether you combine everything together as a couple or decide to keep things separate, kindness and generosity are of utmost importance.
  • How can you navigate having standards and boundaries with your partner without setting your expectations so high that you end up feeling disappointed and resentful?
  • Why Lisa and Benjamin decided to combine everything together and go all-in with their finances and assets.
