The unfortunate reality is that some people are only interested in you because of how fat your wallet is. They are in it for the cash, not out of any genuine feelings of love or friendship. It can be quite painful to finally realize this. They are not who you thought they were—you have been deceived. However, not everyone is quite ready for the hard truth.
Redditor u/golddiggergoogle opened about Especially a strange Christmas celebration at their house. He had invited his parents as well as his brother along with his girlfriend of seven months.

Most people would agree that the brother’s girlfriend acted out of anger. Asking how much everything costs is not something you do in polite company. Especially if you are invited for the holidays. In short: don’t Google how much everyone’s gifts cost. But if you do, don’t start announcing the total amount on Christmas Day. Just…don’t.
So, in general, many Internet users definitely agree that the woman crossed numerous social and moral boundaries. The only real question that remains is whether the OP stepped over the line the way they called him out.
Many redditors felt that the author did nothing wrong, and should not apologize for how forward he was during the awkward conversation. Although some netizens wondered if the term ‘golddigger’ was correct here, there was more or less consensus that the girlfriend acted rude, awkward and ridiculous.
A big red flag that someone is in a money-only relationship is that they never offer to pay for anything. Someone who truly loves you will occasionally buy you small gifts, offer to pay for meals or activities. If they don’t have a lot of money, offering to go Dutch shows their dedication and willingness to sacrifice something for you.
On the other hand, someone who never speaks up when the bill comes probably expects you to pay for everything. This is not a good sign if you are in a long term relationship!
The point of all this is that financial stability is an important aspect of any relationship. And both partners should be on the same page about their expectations and any potential money issues. And this is the key here – honesty! If a partner isn’t genuine with their feelings and financial intentions, there isn’t much hope for a bright future.
The story gained a lot of attention online. Here’s what some readers said and how the author responded to their comments.
