Thoughts on men who have their girlfriends support them?

83 posts in this topic

I've met a few very financially successful girls who end up paying for their boyfriends. By this I mean for their food, rent, travel, etc. Something about it I find pitiful if you are a guy and your girlfriend is basically supporting you. Some of them don't seem to mind it while others seem to get guilted into it. Why does this seem to be a thing in 2020? It's rare but I know of a few examples from my own personal life with girls who are making it and they end up with a leech boyfriend.

My stepsister is struggling with such a guy. Since girls are doing better these days in collage etc it’s not exactly odd. The male gender as a whole is having a bit of a existential crisis.

I wouldn’t judge these guys either, you might as well say, girls have been leeching of guys financially until very recently.

There have always been and will always be guys who leech of girls.

So what?


You are God. You are Love. You are Infinity. You are Leo.

in2020? lol it's not a trend. there might be cases which girls can be supporting financially or emotionally but they will end up getting cold on you if this frame doesn't change. so if you wanna have a short-term, that'll work

It should be more socially acceptable in 2020 then in the past. 

Going into the future, we should be more open to a variety of different wants and needs in a relationship. If some women want to be the provider, rather than the opposite, now is the time to be accepting of it, instead of resorting to judgements derived from cultural indoctrination and dogma rather than acceptance and love. 

Those women might be the provider, but in a lot of cases the guy is providing her with something that she personally likes, that you can't see because you've let your dogmas cloud your judgement. 

Be open to the possibility that there are more ways a relationship can benefit a couple, then the traditional gender roles.

Eventually the girl gets tired and gives up. 

I used to do that to one of my exes. Paying his bills. 

It gets old after a while. And trust me these guys aren't any good. They are not like grateful or nice in return. He used to make me feel guilty for making money and having a bigger house. He was extremely insecure. He wasn't feeling guilty that he depended on me. I was supposed to feel guilty for having more.. 

So it was upside down logic. Such men are awful. They have deep Insecurities. They prey on the woman, not just for money, but they are very exploitative...

It would have been a different thing if he was my husband and cooperative and wonderful. I would have had absolutely no problem in supporting him financially. 

But I will break it down to you. This is how it works basically. He leeches on the girlfriend. At the same time he is not able to admit that he lives off her. Then he suffers internal guilt as a result of his own Insecurities. He doesn't take responsibility for his own insecurities. Instead he takes these insecurities to harass the girlfriend and make her the target of his problems by constantly attacking her success and putting her down every opportunity he gets. 

That's the profile of such men in general. 

Any girl who thinks that such a relationship will pan out successful will be in for a rude shock as the relationship moves forward. 

These are not the guys who are looking for Equality or appreciative of women doing better. They just need some women who they can be with  so that they don't need to do a thing in the relationship and put all responsibilities on the other person meanwhile also abusing the other person. 

 

Women who don't work and have their husbands providing for them at least have a sense of respect towards their husbands. They are proud of them. 

I can compare the "dependent man" relationship to a nagging entitled woman in a marriage where the man makes the money meanwhile she always nags at him and puts him down and hounds him with her insecurities instead of being grateful. 

These men are usually like that. They are a complete no no. 

 

Theoretically I don't have a problem with who pays in relationship, it can be either of the two or both. 

But in reality things are very different. The guys who depend on the girl aren't the ones who you would think would be grateful and nice. They are opposite of your ideals and notions. These are horribly insecure men. 

They are miserable themselves and they try to make their partner lives miserable as well. 

So they are not simply financial leeches. They also leech on your inner peace and sanity. Like energy vampires. 

I finally got freedom from my leech ex and it was a terribly abusive relationship. 

In fact it was the most abusive relationship out of all of my relationships. 

An insecure man is the worst nightmare.

Men are designed/programmed to find a way to extract maximum profit while putting in the least amount of effort, and they’re really good at it. If he found an algorithm for sitting at home all day playing video games while his gf or wife goes to work and pays all their bills, then he’s gonna keep doing that for however long he will be allowed to keep getting away with being a leech. Until something in that mechanism breaks, a man himself -unless he’s crazy - will never get up and start fixing something that is already working (everything is working out great in his world, as far as he’s concerned). If a woman is not happy with how things are going in there relationship all she has to do is throw some rocks in there and break a few things- she could just get fired one day and start struggling to find a new job... She could become so busy with work that she no longer had time to cook for him. Should could just be so tired coming home from work that she didn’t have the energy to have sex with him. She could also have a coworker start courting her. She could also just leave him. So many ways to break that mechanism, the only limit is a woman’s imagination.

I doubt that men living off women is happening more now than it did in the past. However, current trend of being “a successful strong woman” is certainly something that a man will definitely try and exploit so if, indeed, there’s been a rise in the number of cases of leches, then thank feminism.

@diamondpenguin will hurry up and get it to you real soon. In the meantime, while you’re waiting, start practicing the art of expressing your position without putting words in other people’s mouths.

My wife has the better paying job compared to me (think professional like a doctor, lawyer compared to just an office worker. She was making more than double what I was.)

The good thing is this gave me the financial support/security to quit my office job that I hated and pursue my life purpose of being a freelance writer. 

I don't consider myself a "leech." I put a 10% down payment on our house when we bought it from my savings. I pay all my own bills like phone, internet, etc. When we got a new fence and air conditioner, half the money came out of my earnings/savings. My business doesn't earn six-figures or anything, but even this year with the pandemic and associated downturn, I'll still earn about the same amount that I would working full-time at a minimum wage job.

If you just see a woman paying for her guy's meal or driving him around, you are making your judgement from only a tiny piece of it. You have no idea what the full details of the situation might be. Don't just assume he's a total freeloader.

Still... Do I feel guilty that I contribute less? Do I feel like "less of a man"? Yes, sometimes. Probably mostly as a result of society's expectations and toxic ideals for masculinity.

Part of our long-term plan is also for me to be a stay-at-home dad though. I'm more of a homebody who doesn't mind making dinner or cooking, and my wife is a driven career woman. So for our situation, the arrangement just makes logical sense. Once we have kids, me staying at home will easily save us $10k/year or more on daycare costs, for example.

If you look down on guys in this situation... try to flip the situation on its head and look at it from another angle. Why don't you look down on women who are "leeches" as strongly? Why is society more accepting of this? Why is it perfectly okay for a woman to never go to college/university or plan for a career? Why is it okay for just getting married and staying at home to be a viable and even honorable life path for women, but not for men?

@Yarco You brought up great points. I would also like to share my take on it but let’s just give a bit of context first and define women-leeches - useless, they just sit at home all day posting on Instagram photos of their ass, and siphoning her husband’s hard-earned money on nail/hair salons, clothes, etc. Women-leeches are shitty wives and are horrible mothers; they can’t cook, their homes are dirty and not cozy, and they trick men into marriages through pregnancy. They usually also cheat while husband is at work. They should and they are being looked down upon. Now consider another scenario where a husband is the only one working and his wife is at home raising children. They both have duties and responsibilities towards each other that they honor and fulfill. The wife has submitted into her feminine role of supporting her husband and fully depends on him. She is not trying to compete with him or have a means of providing for herself. She trusts in his ability to provide for her and for their family, is grateful for everything that he gives her, and loves and cares in return without reservation. This is actually extremely hard to do and requires total and complete surrendering of one’s ego. Once she’s surrendered, under such conditions the man can start fully stepping into his masculine role and is able to actualize himself within the society to his full potential. His woman becomes the driving force/fuel/his inspiration to achieve greatness. He is motivated and is happy to provide for the woman he loves who appreciates everything that he does for her, and the more he gives her and the happier she gets, the happier he feels because that’s what love is - seeing her happy makes him happy. And the foundation of everything they do for each other is love. The reason why this is a traditional setup and most couples are happiest when they perform their roles (men perform the role of the provider/achiever/leader, and woman performs a famine role of receiving/caring/supporting/taking care of home/raising children) is because the synergy occurs only when both polarities interlock instead of clashing.When women are stepping into men’s role and pursue a career while their children are being raised by strangers in the kindergarten, the husband is not being taken care of, the balance is off, the child is not receiving the love that only a mother can give; the husband is not feeling fulfilled. A man is happiest and feels most fulfilled when he realized all of his potential and earned money/status and is able to shower the woman he loves with the products of his accomplishments and receive her smile and admiration back. Interfering into this natural flow of things and reinventing it only brings friction and imbalance.

Until a woman fully realizes her role as a woman and steps into her role and man does the same and steps into his masculinity there will only be tug of war, and all involved (including children) will suffer.

I just can't believe there is this one girl I know who basically supports her boyfriend while he does nothing. Pays for his food and the luxury flat she rentsand he stays at. I'm being a bit judgemental cause I don't know the full story. Maybe he is trying to get a business off the ground or something. Last I heard he wanted to become a rapper o.O

Tell your friend to stop doing what she’s doing - all that’s gonna happen when (and if) he become successful is her finding him with his hoes in their bed.

@Lyubov This is actually the case with my uncle. He had a spiritual experience (through the stage Blue filter/Christian beliefs), and has surrendered to his belief of god or maybe experience who knows. But he got a girlfriend who is also really religious and is working on making christian music while she pays the bills. 

From what ive seen he is a pretty responsible person and has a vision in mind, his relationship with his girlfriend seems to be really good too. 

I think if the guy is working towards something and has a vision its okay temporarily, but if hes not doing shit and is a slug then nope.

This seems incredibly misogynistic and outdated to me. We live in a time when people are able to choose their own gender for god's sake. Why can't a man be happy in a role that isn't traditionally masculine?

I still feel like the "man" in my relationship. It's not like I'm suddenly transformed into a cuck because my wife is the breadwinner of our household.

@Yarco I don’t know why. Why can’t a lion eat leaves, like a koala, and still thrive? But maybe you’ll have a chance to find out if (god forbid) one day your wife leaves you for an actual man, not the one who only feels like one. Again, I’m not telling anyone how to live their lives and what roles to play, I’m only sharing my perspective and my discoveries, observations, what I found out to be true for myself. Since I’m not such a unique snowflake, we’re all humans here, I believe that others will be able to relate to this and come to terms with some things without having to go through many painful life experiences only to find out that where their journey has taken them is where it all began.
