On Ask Polly: I Was Dumped After a Freak Accident and I Can't Move On

i read these letters every week and often one thing stands out, the unhappy female has paid for her BF in some way. i, fortunately, was born knowing it is not a good idea to pay for men in almost any way. i buy gifts for my BF (birthdays Christmas and some other times and sometimes buy clothing for him like a nice shirt), but would never pay for anything major (unless of course he was dying and in need of medical help). sadly, it just doesn't work. it's something unexplainable. if your BF can't afford whatever it is, tuition, rent etc. maybe it's time to find a new BF. tuition seems like a good ide,a but it won't work. it's about emasculation, no matter how progressive people believe they are. i think a hard and fast rule about this is a good idea and also better never to mention it, just move on. if a man can't get it together financially, what can i say.... there are mysterious forces at work...
