I’d be so disgusted that I would likely go the nuclear route since she clearly disqualified herself for anything more than a ONS so I’d treat her like human filth.

Me: I know I’m so funny 😆...tell ya what slob on my knob, and I’ll open one of my bank accounts for you to look at.

Terrible response. You’re showing her you’re emotionally fragile. That’ll dry her pussy up like the Sahara. It’s demonstrating emotional weakness.

[–]_-resonance-_14 points15 points  (15 children) | Copy

Maybe dude doesn’t want to fuck something so shallow..

[–]Sonny_Luna1 point2 points  (14 children) | Copy

Why? Why should men be so emotional about sex? Jesus Christ, we don’t need an emotional connection to women just to fuck them.

That mindset is part of the problem for many of the men who come here. We, as men, need to harden the fuck up. Instead of complaining about how women are just unfeeling sociopaths maybe the problem lies with men who are too emotional. We need to be accountable and we need to hold other men accountable for being emotionally weak.

[–]stripedtanker7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy

I do agree. Can't bitch at a girl for being shallow and looking for money if you are shallow and go for looks.

[–]Sonny_Luna5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

This place has absolutely become an echo chamber for pussified men who fear women and see them as their oppressors. It’s victim mentality. It’s disgusting.

[–]ieatsoggytoast8 points9 points  (9 children) | Copy

How other men decide to live their lives is none of your business. If he’s successful in his pursuit of what makes him happy then it works. You shouldn’t project your own feelings of anger on others. If you’re angry at the thought of another man not treating a female like human filth then you’re obviously emotionally weak.

[–]Sonny_Luna6 points7 points  (8 children) | Copy

Fuck that. It’s anti-masculine. That’s bad any way you slice it. TRP is definitively sexual strategy and being anti-masculine undermines progress in that regard.

[–]ieatsoggytoast1 point2 points  (7 children) | Copy

I can guarantee you that anyone comfortable with their masculinity doesnt project hatred onto women. You’re nothing more than a triggered sjw in my eyes.

[–]SpecialSpnk[🍰] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I mean don't get me wrong I love banging chicks, but I also like intimacy and connection. Maybe I'm just a sucker

[–]Sonny_Luna2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ok but why are you putting intimacy and connection before sex? That’s the exact opposite way to do it. You start fucking a girl you’re attracted to and you see if she makes the cut after a while.

See, this is how I know your approach is all wrong. Your mindset is all wrong. You need to be stronger mentally. You’re far too weak. It’s not good.

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (6 children) | Copy

I think in most cases you’d be right it depends on how you say it. I’d be laughing the whole time.

Outcome independence I could care less what she thinks at that point. She’s a gold digger.

I say that type stuff to get a laugh for me and the boys. While she goes running crying to the bathroom.

[–]Sonny_Luna2 points3 points  (5 children) | Copy

I think in most cases you’d be right it depends on how you say it. I’d be laughing the whole time.

Ok I’m with you so far.

Outcome independence I could care less what she thinks at that point. She’s a gold digger.

I mean it’s good to have outcome independence but does it make her a gold digger to wonder how much money you make or for her to be subconsciously curious as to how you’d handle being asked that question? Are you suggestion a woman would be in the wrong for factoring your financial success into her attraction to you? I don’t see why. I thought it was pretty well understood, here, that women are attracted to powerful men and men with status. So why is it fucked up for her to ask?

Also, as men we are totally preoccupied with women’s appearance. That’s extremely superficial. I’d argue it’s worse than being a “gold digger”. At least men can change their financial position. If a woman is ugly there’s not a ton she can do to change it other than makeup.

I say that type stuff to get a laugh for me and the boys. While she goes running crying to the bathroom.

See, now you’re kinda implying that you’d be insulted by it and feel compelled to lash out. I don’t know, man. It seems like that may be losing frame. Not necessarily, though.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Just to be clear my original response was short and precise if you look at my original comment.

Somebody posed a hypothetical with the gold digger pressing me so I gave a hypothetical response.

I’m not going to go down this game-theory hole with you. What works for me isn’t going to work for some people on here.

[–]Don_Draper2791 points92 points  (10 children) | Copy

Treat it as a shit test. AA, pressure flip, etc.

You should rarely answer a girls question directly that you are trying to game.

Also, this is most likely a red flag. If a girl wants to fuck you she won't care how much money you make.

I've only ever had 1 girl ask me a question like this and this is how I handled it.

(I was at a backyard gig on a Friday night and I was texting this girl who I DM'd on IG. I'd asked her to hang out earlier in the day and she hit me with the "i"ll let you know")

Her: Ok I'm available, but what car do you drive?

Me: Don't worry, it has seat warmers. (it was like 50 degrees outside).

Her: No seriously, what car do you drive?

I stopped replying after that and neither of us ever followed up. Major red flag.

But if it's a shit test you can just reply with something like, "enough to once in a while add guac at Chipotle.

[–]_-resonance-_8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

u/don_draper27 is on point. I recently answered some questions on a first-date because in general I was being elusive and mysterious. I felt confident to answer her directly and figured idc what she thinks about my response.

Thing is, by directly answering her questions without giving her any push-back, I let her think she could swindle frame-control from me. Plus I lost my mystique.

So when you get called out for elusiveness, keep having fun with it. Offer information in your own time and way, not in direct response to a new girl’s questions. Maybe even to an LTR’s questions. Not sure how long this tactic will fly.

But my suggestion is to consider it like a practice volley in tennis. You’re getting to know each other, getting warmed up, feeling each other out, but why would you ever let her feel like she has the ability to seize the momentum/develop frame around you?

“You seem uncomfortable not being in control. Is that true?”

“Another great question. Are you keeping track so you can submit these to me later in written form?”

Completely agree, puts her in an uncomfortable position where she has to validate herself to you that she's not a gold digger. But as soon as she utters these words don't think of her as anything more than a plate.

I technically am broke, because I budget myself like a broke person when really im doing better than most people.

[–]peacemakerzzz8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

People here are literally answering the question it’s funny but at the same time not great advice at all. It’s a joke.

The best way to respond is to not answer and not take things seriously. Always agree and amplify or put the pressure back on her. Obvious shit test.

If you really aren’t making as much as you’d want to fake it, at least act like you’re not bothered by it. Shit tests are there for a reason. It’s a subconscious way of identifying whether you’re insecure about a certain thing or not.

If you truly are insecure about your financial situation, which a lot of guys are, compensate for something that is perceived as high value.

Always remember, play to your strengths and never to your weaknesses. Covertly improve those weaknesses until they become strengths. Simple art of deception goes a long way to alluring people’s interests to your way of thinking.

[–]-ThePathIsTheGoal-3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, it really is a major red flag if the girl is asking you something like this early. If you’re in an LTR for upwards of 6 months or so I can understand it. But keep your guard up for girls that ask about how much you make, what kind of car you drive, etc.

[–]G0rv5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

All these brushing-off game responses in the thread, are you actually able to play it?

You'll likely come off as butt hurt and insecure by avoiding to answer. And isn't that the key take away from her point of view? Yeah sure, she might be interested in an actual number, but if she's vetting out fragile egos in the process then that is even better. The setup is a win-win for her.

Never mind her intentions, remember you should be the prize, you are vetting her out. So the only valid reason to avoid a truthful answer is, as a gentleman, to avoid for everyone else to look like a moron and failure at life when hearing how ridiculously much you bank.

You shouldn't next women because they're golddiggers, everyone is looking for quality (and indicators for that), males also. You should next them because they resort to gaming and shit tests, because that's a red flag.

So, in essence...

I have no real problem to answer that, but it is my experience that it is always a problem for everyone else to hear it.

That should be the truth. And consider the question answered and gracefully transition the conversation into something else.

[–]MarylandLion4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Most bitches are used to betas going along with them. They are flustered when a guy subtly calls them out. So yes it is really easy to play those types of responses to them. I just straight up tell them they’re being rude.

[–]mrrooftops2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

In all seriousness, if she has to ask that then you aren't communicating through your presence your capability to earn a good salary. I'm not talking about flash cars and branded clothes - anyone can rent and buy those on sale. It's the same as if a girl has to ask if you go to the gym, you clearly don't (enough).

Three options here

None of your fucking business.

I make enough for me to be comfortable

I do ok.

The fourth option is to immediately stand up and walk away without a single word.

Your choice though but if anybody asks that, then you need to know that number one priority is your wallet

[–]Sonny_Luna4 points5 points  (11 children) | Copy

You’re advising breaking frame. Makes no sense.

[–]akihonj2 points3 points  (10 children) | Copy

I'm not advising anything, but I am advising not being taken for a fool, like I said it's your choice, personally if I'm asked that I laugh and say I don't discuss money or throw the question back and say you opened the can of worms first.

As I said though it's your choice.

[–]Sonny_Luna-1 points0 points  (9 children) | Copy

Fuck that. Why would you ever stand up and walk out? That’s a total pussy move. Absolutely weak. Not just weak from a particularly critical position, but weak as in you’re a pussy.

Nothing women say should affect you that way. And look, of course I know that things like this are easier said than done in the heat of the moment, but you’re on a message board, in a relaxed state of mind, suggesting another man demonstrate emotional weakness and definitive breaking of frame. You think that makes any sense? Hell, if you can’t even demonstrate resilience, hypothetically, posting on reddit, how are you gonna react in the heat of the moment?

[–]akihonj2 points3 points  (8 children) | Copy

As I said it's up to you what you do. What I find funny though is you're talking about frame and behaving like a bitch whining about whether or not to walk away while you're in a relaxed state on a message board.

If nothing they say affects you then surely how you respond to what they do is what matters, are you somebody who is going to sit there and let them shit test you or are you actually man enough to know your worth, again this is your choice but it sounds to me as though you're just pissed and salty because you don't have the balls to walk away so make excuses to allow yourself to be a walking ATM.

I don't care either way, it's totally your choice how you respond, as I said clearly, if your sitting with somebody who is talking about how much you earn what's the purpose of being there, you trap yourself, either you have enough in which case you can't complain when she expects you to pay, if you say you have enough but actually don't again your fucked. If you say you don't have that much and you're lying you're being a dick, if you actually don't have that much and she walks again you're sitting there with your dick in your hand wondering where you went wrong.

I actually don't care what you do, it's your choice, personally I've sat there because I thought it was going somewhere and it did and I've said thanks but at this stage we don't know each other well enough to talk about money and ended it there.

The difference between you and I is that I'm not afraid to go home alone at night, I'm not afraid because I know I'll meet somebody else within a few days and the game will begin all over again, you seem desperate though that you should stay regardless.

So if for example she pours a glass of wine over you, you sit still and don't react, if she's on a date with you you and starts flirting with somebody else, starts checking her phone, talking on her phone you sit there, pretending that it's not bothering you and everyone else is looking at you and wondering what kind of simp does that.

No for me I have self respect and pride and if I'm not shown the same levels of respect I'm giving then I'm walking because I know that I'll get better.

So I'll say this again though, how you deal with it is up to you.

[–]Sonny_Luna0 points1 point  (7 children) | Copy

What I find funny though is you're talking about frame and behaving like a bitch whining about whether or not to walk away while you're in a relaxed state on a message board.

I get that I’m hurting your feelings with my criticism so you want to insult me back somehow but you need to use an applicable insult.

If nothing they say affects you then surely how you respond to what they do is what matters, are you somebody who is going to sit there and let them shit test you or are you actually man enough to know your worth, again this is your choice but it sounds to me as though you're just pissed and salty because you don't have the balls to walk away so make excuses to allow yourself to be a walking ATM.

You think it takes balls to walk away? Walking away is an emotional response. You’re literally retreating in anger. That is definitively breaking frame. Don’t try to use semantics to make it seem otherwise.

I don't care either way, it's totally your choice how you respond, as I said clearly, if your sitting with somebody who is talking about how much you earn what's the purpose of being there, you trap yourself

Why does it upset you so much? Why do you consider it a trap? I’ll tell you why. You feel insecure about your financial position. That is your whole problem. You are insecure. You lack confidence. And when a woman asks you how much you make you are confronted by that insecurity and you get very uncomfortable.

either you have enough in which case you can't complain when she expects you to pay, if you say you have enough but actually don't again your fucked.

What in the fuck are you talking about? You think those are the only options? You don’t have to pay if you don’t want to, whether you have enough money or not. And now I’m realizing you are a child when you talk about not being able to pay. Even if you aren’t rich you can still cover a fucking dinner if you want to. Do you think you need to be rich to cover dinner? Why did you say this:

if you say you have enough but actually don't again your fucked

Are you imagining being in a position where you can’t easily afford a night out for you and a date? Again, you don’t need to be rich to treat a date to a long night out.

Personally, I don’t get overly generous with women. But that’s just me. Plenty of accomplished TRP guys on here suggest paying as it’s considered the alpha move. Maybe they’re right and I should pay more but I kinda get off on getting the girl to pay.

If you say you don't have that much and you're lying you're being a dick, if you actually don't have that much and she walks again you're sitting there with your dick in your hand wondering where you went wrong.

lol

Here’s you, again, imagining a scenario where you can’t pay for dinner? What the fuck are you talking about? Are you literally indigent?

lol

I actually don't care what you do, it's your choice, personally I've sat there because I thought it was going somewhere and it did and I've said thanks but at this stage we don't know each other well enough to talk about money and ended it there.

Good! That’s fine! Getting butthurt isn’t fine. You need to get your hands on some money, kid. It’s not that hard.

The difference between you and I is that I'm not afraid to go home alone at night

Dude, I’m fucking 40 years old and I refuse to ever marry. LTR’s bore me after 3 months. Going home alone is my favorite thing to do. For me, women are only fun for sex (essentially). That’s not to brag. I just don’t find companionship in women. I can’t help it.

But just because I think it’s pussy to emotionally run away with your feelings hurt doesn’t mean I’m desperate to get with a girl inquiring about money. I’m just saying, it shouldn’t hurt your feelings. Letting your feelings get hurt by words is pussy. No two ways about it.

I'm not afraid because I know I'll meet somebody else within a few days and the game will begin all over again

Bullshit. You’re very insecure. You’re saying what you think will resonate here but you know that’s not true. You’re obviously insecure and sensitive. I mean, that’s fine since you’re young and inexperienced but you ain’t pulling numbers.

you seem desperate though that you should stay regardless.

Dude, it’s like this: Staying is passing the shit test. Being affected emotionally by it is failing the shit test. I know you’re insulted so you want to lash out and call me desperate for not condoning acting like a pussy but you are acting like a pussy if you get upset.

So if for example she pours a glass of wine over you, you sit still and don't react

See? This is how I can tell you’re insecure and sensitive. You think a shittest is a sign of disrespect. You’re demonstrating that you’re so insecure as to be insulted by a shittest that you think it’s the same as literal assault?!

You gotta be fucking kidding me, kid.

if she's on a date with you you and starts flirting with somebody else

This can be a shittest or it can be actual disrespect. Either way, letting it upset you is never the move. You can still decide that this chick isn’t for you without reacting emotionally. You can’t tell that throwing a tantrum isn’t the right move. I don’t know what to tell ya, bro.

starts checking her phone

If this happens it’s because you aren’t good enough. You’re not being interesting enough. If you can’t compete with her phone you have lost the game. It’s still not a good idea to respond emotionally. You can’t differentiate between reacting emotionally and passing a shittest. You seem to think you either have to throw an emotional tantrum or you’re just a simp, sucker. That’s a false dilemma fallacy.

I’m here to tell you you can discard a woman who is acting inappropriately without looking like an emotional wreck. You don’t think you can, it seems.

talking on her phone you sit there

Dude, that has never happened to me. I’m starting to feel like you’re giving many examples of women shitting on you. You need to be more interesting.

pretending that it's not bothering you and everyone else is looking at you and wondering what kind of simp does that.

Honestly, I’ve never had a woman ignore me in favor of her phone. But if I did I wouldn’t become upset. You think you need to become upset. You’re extremely insecure. You’re imagining everyone in the bar staring at you just because a girl you’re with is on her phone? This is some high level projection.

No for me I have self respect and pride and if I'm not shown the same levels of respect I'm giving then I'm walking because I know that I'll get better.

See, you think a shittest is disrespect. And that’s because you’re inexperienced and insecure.

I know you’re young so it’s not even a huge deal. Just make sure you progress past all this.

[–]akihonj0 points1 point  (6 children) | Copy

Wow a very long winded way of saying I upset you.

[–]Sonny_Luna0 points1 point  (5 children) | Copy

lol

I’m not even addressing you, per se.

You are just a verbal punching bag to make my point for the rest of the community.

lol upset...

[–]akihonj0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

Lol yeah not upset not getting out of frame not being a bitch not whining about any of it but needing a verbal punching bag to make yourself feel like you've scored a point, what an assist.

If you're red pilled then and you think with any seriousness that this community should look up to you or take anything you say with any regard then let's face it this community is fucked.

Ok big man have at it, still I'll be enjoying my life and you'll be pulling yourself off over pictures if your sister because let's face it that's all you've got. Sad fuck.

[–]Sonny_Luna0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

Lol yeah not upset not getting out of frame not being a bitch not whining about any of it but needing a verbal punching bag to make yourself feel like you've scored a point, what an assist.

lol wtf

You’re in hysterics lol! Learn to use some punctuation so people can understand you, dummy.

I used you as a punching bag, not to get out some king of aggression. I’m demonstrating to people, who might not understand who to believe, that you’re irrational and emotional. And to not be like you. You are being used, here, as an example of how not to behave.

If you're red pilled then

I don’t think I’m SO red pilled. It’s just that you are SO far from being red pulled that even someone like me, who’s just a journeyman TRPer, can easily show how what you’re saying is absolutely incorrect and retarded.

I guess you think that it takes some kind of TRP expert to demonstrate how badly you misunderstand what’s taught here. But it doesn’t. That’s you giving yourself FAR too much credit. And that’s because you don’t know shit. Anyone past the very beginning stages of swallowing the pill can see how stupid you are.

and you think with any seriousness that this community should look up to you or take anything you say with any regard then let's face it this community is fucked.

You’re vastly over representing what’s going on here. Again. I’m merely demonstrating that you, an emotional pussy, are advising people to respond to women like an emotional pussy. I’m just telling other guys here that what you’re advising is to behave like a pussy towards women.

Ok big man have at it, still I'll be enjoying my life and you'll be pulling yourself off over pictures if your sister because let's face it that's all you've got. Sad fuck.

lol

You enjoy life being an emotional pussy? Ok. If you say so.

lol

Her: “So. What car do you drive?”

Me: “Are you really interested in my car, or do you want to know if I make good money?”

Her: awkward backtracking, etc.

Me: I explain that I hardly drive because I live in an exclusive apartment building where the only parking option is valet parking.

Her: after some awkward conversation, lands on the question, so how much do you make?

Me: “Obviously much more than you.” Then I walk away, and talk to other women.

[–]dgillz7 points8 points  (4 children) | Copy

Older redditor here. I got set up on a blind meet up with a girl about 25 years ago (I wouldn't call it a date). Her girlfriends were my friends from business and they were my wing-women. We had fun drinking and dancing, and at the end of the night, I walked her to her car and asked if I could take her on a real date.

Her first question was "what do you drive?".

I actually had 3 cars, my cheap ass Toyota Corolla (which I drove that night), a GMC Jimmy SUV, and a classic 1969 Pontiac Firebird (admittedly needed some work, but that came in time).

I told her about my beat up Corolla and that was all. She wasn't interested. I dodged a bullet.

The next morning my wing women called me and wanted to know why I didn't get a date. I recounted everything above to them (they both knew I was doing well and had 3 cars, but never told their friend this).

30 minutes later the bitch calls me and wants to go out. I declined. Second bullet dodged. I don't even remember her name.

I still own the Firebird though.

[–]Flintblood2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

What an awesome way to cut through all the BS and also allow her to save face in the moment.

[–]dgillz2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thx man. I'm just glad she was so open about being a bitch or I would have wasted money on her (I was ready to take her out). I made it a point from then on out to always drive my Corolla.

The Corolla was a great, frugal commuter car. My GMC was my weekend beach/mountains/off road fun car. And the Firebird - well it was (and is) a Firebird.

Never tip your financial status to your date/prospects was the lesson I learned here.

[–]Monkitail0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

til doing well is owning a corolla, a Pontiac and a jimmy.

[–]comcain0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Awesome, I have a 70 Camaro SS. Love those muscle cars.

[–]WIA20XX6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

This one is easy. It's a question of how you want to play it.

  • 380 base, 180 bonus. (walkaway)
  • Too much to answer anyone asking that question. (walkaway)
  • What are you? A fed? (walkaway)
  • My girl brings in 12k on her onlyfans every month. Trying to get her cousin to start doing it to (stand there and wait)
  • I did 18 mill in revenue last year, but 2020 is fucking my money up with this recession shit.
  • I'm a janitor/I live with my Moms.

If she's asking about money, she's poorly showing her hand. Her interest could be carnal or financial, but she thinks she has leverage over you. Either you're poor and not worth her time, or you're rich and she can use her feminine wiles on you.

Because the behavior is predictable, you can manipulate her.

[–]cphpc4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

It depends. If you make good money then just say I make good money and if you dont just say you scrap by. Own up to what you make. If you’re not making bank now have plans and goals to do so later. Having a goal is an attractive trait. A girl shit testing you like that is only short term anyway.

Do not answer, and quickly move to the next.

Or...." I don't know, how much do you cost?"

[–]wheeets1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

You should ask why that matters. Your value comes from your personality your values your character and who you are as a person, not your wallet

Loud Voice: "Are you on your period?".

In other words, ask THEM something uncomfortable and personal in response.

[–]throwaway90124891231 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

The only chick I ever dated who asked that question was a 3-week fling. I told her I made 12 dollars an hour and brought her to my shitty temporary apartment just to fuck with her. In reality I was pulling over six figures. I now have a very nice house, a rental property, and still make six figures. I continue to live well below my means as the best possible way to avoid shallow, gold-digging losers.

If any girl asks that, it's an instant dump. End of story.

That’s all weak shit tbh

[–]JaydXThomas0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

'Enough'. Why does she need to know more, is she doing my taxes?

[–]stripedtanker0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

That's usually a pretty big red flag for me so I immediately start viewing her as a fling unless she redeems herself. I normally side step the question and say I'm really poor (to reframe how she views me) or just call her out and be like is it a deal breaker?

[–]ASTRA-LUX0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Asking how much money you make is the biggest red flag to keep away. Why would anyone ask you how much money do you make. Right, I don't live in the US.

"Enough."

[–]roughback0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I usually say "I do alright, not enough to push a hummer but you know I do my thing." then play it off with some stupid saying or phrase to change the subject, depending on what we're doing. If we were at a dairy queen I'd say something like "enough to buy you one of EVERYTHING in this motherfucka!" in a silly bravado voice.

"How much do you cost?"

Seriously though, if someone flat-out asks that, you do NOT want a relationship with them, and you might very well be dealing with a cluster-B woman / individual.

I thought about sending you a DM but decided against it since I want other guys to see this.

You're in the anger phase of taking the red pill. Probably had a recent heart break. Your shit advice won't "make her want to be on your good side". It just proves to her that you're probably broke and definitely angry. It also sets up a very bleak state of mind.

It's up to OP what he wants. He can treat it as a shit test and AA then bang her and plate her, or he can walk away.

There's no point in trying to teach anything. This isn't a classroom and OP is not a teacher.

Women always say stupid shit or ask stupid questions. If every guy here followed your advice, vibrator stocks would soar. You need to turn the intensity dial down a bit.

But what do I know? Maybe you're right and I should start to confront bad questions. Either way, wish you the best.

can I just put this out there without being downvoted? you should tell her how much you make. it's a good opportunity to brag without trying. if you are not proud of what you make then you need to make some changes in your life and that's a hard pill to swallow for some people but that's why we are here

[–]daymi0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

... not even my coworkers know how much I make.

When you answer her questions you are qualifying herself to her. That question specifically only has downsides for you.

Other variations: "What do you do?" "You must be very smart" etcetc. All of them very bad for you.

I agree that you should be proud of how much you make, but after some mistakes you learn to shut up about it and hope nobody ever finds out again. Humans can be very, very shitty.

[–]hornyblackmama-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

It’s a bit gross that some women ask that. On behalf of us good ones, I apologize. I would say “enough to be comfortable” but in your head say “it’s none of your damn business”
