should you be afraid to let everyone know if your bf/gf is poor?

my friend had lots of boyfriends before and since she's sort of rich, all of her bfs were rich too and had some face valuse, per se. but later, she had a poor bf and she only introduces him as her friend. since it's summer this time, we went to boracay and stayed in a single room. one night, we overheard them talking they need to pretend coz the girl is shy of him. the guy just shook his head but said nothing. if you are the guy, what will you do?

i would tell the girl to take a hike. money is important to live, but it's not shameful if you have less than others.and it shouldn;t matter to your friend how much money a guy has

I think if you pretend that either your Gf or bf are rich it means you are not comfortable in the relationship and have serious doubts about continuing. You are in the relationship due to some pressures which could be anything but not love and because you want to be in this situation. I would suggest you break up and find someone rich rather than hang on to this one as your last hope.But money isn't everything you need love too.

Normally, you can't tell how much money a person has just by looking at them. Why would you let anyone know how much money your bf or gf has, or even how much money you have? If she is that ashamed of him, the she shouldn't be with him and he should stand up to her and not allow him to disrespect her.

Nope, if I love my boyfriend then nothing else should matter. Poor or not did he ask for it? Why would she be dating him if she is embarrassed of walking around with him near people who know he is poor. My point is money doesn't grow on trees and we shouldn't take it for granted. Emotions and feels beat money everyday. What will I do? I'd break up with her and run for the hills and find someone who isn't embarrassed of me because of my financial situation

There is no way for us to be afraid if your bf/gf is poor. There is now law that descriminate rich from poor and vice versa. It is only us the constituents who often treats poor people unfairly. So why bother to be shameful of being poor? Don't you know what we're all on the same level for God? So please, dont do like that coz it's always good to be humble rather than to be a pretender.
