Too Broke to be in a Relationship
Have you ever felt that you were too broke to be in relationship? Do you feel that way now? Is it necessary to have your finances in order before you look for that special someone? I hear women say all of the time that they can’t get with a man who is broke. A good number of them are straight up lying. Musiq Soulchild has a song title “Money Right” in which he sings, “As soon as I get my money right, I’ll take good care of you.” Are there women out there, who, if they heard that line from a man, would they wait for him? I’ve never heard a man say that he didn’t get with a woman because she was strapped for cash.
I am working, putting myself through college, and repairing my credit all at the same time. Many times I have said that I am too broke to be in a relationship. Not only do relationships require time, but they also require money. I barely have either. A man has never boldy told me that he couldn’t be with me because I’m economically challenged; however, I think that my finances were part of the reason that one guy discontinued seeing me. He had made a brief appearance in my life. I had the strongest feeling that he was here for all the wrong reasons. Once I told him what my salary is, he soon vanished. Hmmm…nah, he was just the equivalent of those lint balls you find in the pocket of your jeans. Maybe he had been looking for a sponsor.
Numerous times I have jokingly said that I need a sugar daddy. How many of you have said you needed a sponsor? It would be awesome to have somebody throw some cash my way and take some of the stress off me, but I know that shit ain’t realistic. A sponsor is not the answer. A sponsor is another pain in the ass who will end up on the Do Not Pick Up list on my Iphone. Besides, my heart won’t let me beat someone in the head just to get my Visa bill paid. I always wondered what men and women have said to their sponsor to get him or her to drop their ducats. What extremes have they gone to in order to get others to pay for their shit?
Looking at the bigger picture, I know that my financial status will change for the better. The job that I have pays its employees based on their education level. My knowledge is increasing and I am gradually progressing at my job. I am closer to the level where I know that I will be. It’s clearly very easy for me to be sidetracked from the positive to dwell on the negative, but I am so glad that I have the ability to shift back into the right gear. 2 Corinthians 4:18 reads: “So we fix our eyes not what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal.” Yeah, I’m having some financial technical difficulties right now, but it will not be forever. Yeah, money isn’t everything, but it means a lot when you have it and able to fund your lifestyle. So until I get my money straight, single is what I will be.
