Been dating her about 2.5 months. Things were really going well. She has a somewhat colorful past but nothing that screams red flag. She's at somewhat of a crossroads in her life right now and indicated she really needs some money right now to make her transition easier. She didn't blatantly ask me for money at all, but she phrased things in a way that would have made it very easy for me (or some other guy) to say, "Well, I'll help you pay for that. Don't worry about it." It's not a fortune but in the thousands of dollars. I am financially stable and could easily help her without worrying about my own finances at all, but I'm not someone who starts giving a bunch of money to women unless I'm either married or pretty sure I'm going to get married to them. I'm definitely not going to put a bunch of money into a girl I've only dated a few months, so I lied by saying I would help her if I was rich, but I'm not. She dumped me with a lame excuse a few days later.
While I guess my method did it's job of exposing a gold-digger, I'm still a bit upset since things really seemed to be going great. But since I am not able (or choose not to) be an extra savings account for her, she blows me off. wtf?
Do this behavior with women ever stop?
