I recently met a really great guy, right around the same time I lost my job. While I'm fine with a guy paying for a first date or two, I like to either split, chip in, or at least offer to pay.
I am searching for a job, any I can find, but until that happens, it's going to be a struggle financially. I've had him over, cooked and baked for him in an effort to make up for it (thank god for grocery coupons), but there are only so many nights we can stay in.
He knows that I don't have a job, but since he's never been in the same situation he doesn't really grasp just how tough it is. I feel so guilty every time we go out and he foots the bill, and I feel like he expects me to offer. I really like him and feel like we have a lot of potential, and I don't want this to be an issue. What can I do in this situation?
