I'm starting a new relationship with a great guy, he's about 8 years older then me. Things go great when we go out and in the bedroom and snuggling and everything...the main issue i'm kinda dealing with is our different income levels. He makes six figures easily...i'm at 10.50 an hour. He has no debt, I have 16k in student loans and 3k in credit cards. I'd say overall he's had a more sheltered life then me and I have my mistakes in the past that I'm working through. I was unemployed briefly for about 3 weeks when i first moved in with him and he kinda got annoyed a bit about paying for everything. Now that I have a job again he's a lot better. I just get so insecure and sometimes downright envious inside it kinda almost hurts. I never talk up much about it, other then "so you like me?" kinda of one line questions. I know the typical generic response is "talk to him about it" but he's not really someone that's easy to talk to about these things cause he'll just aim to make me feel better about it. Just wanting to know how to deal with it i supose.
