My last boyfriend and I were very open about money, and that’s great! Yes, so good! Except when it became apparent he was much more prepared for retirement than I was, and it sort of seemed like I was screwing up our future together by taking on loans and squandering what little money I had on shoes and dinners out. Whoops! So yes, that’s an insecurity I imagine many people share. No one WANTS to be the Ernie, but sometimes we just are!!
