Girlfriends do not take all your money.

Now wives, that is a different story...

Psh, girls pay me to be with them....


But seriously, its all about saving up one thing at a time. Not eating out everyday, go on a hike with a girl instead of the movies, tell her you want to go to dennys and have hot chocolate and just talk instead of going to a steak house.

Its all about your priorities, personally, a gf is a waste of money, spend all this cash and you have nothing to show for It when they cheat on you and split. I'm 19, athletic and ill go as far to say I'm a decent looking guy, I have no problem getting a hook up everynow and then. Which is much less expensive then a commited relation ship. Plus I'm to young for one of those any way, don't want to be tied down

And I have a ford focus. Take almost no gas... Like I said its all about your prioritys
