I find that guys who think this way look at women as just another asset, a trinket. They like to be surrounded by "yes men" and if you aren't kissing their ass then you must be trying to use them for their money. Conversely, women who seek them out usually fit the same mold...hot, young, materialistic, and a zero work ethic. All I can say to them is have a contingency plan, because eventually beauty fades, and the world is a cruel place for a dried up old c*ck-tease with no skills and no ambition.
Just can't say it better than that.

Men who talk about money, status and their possessions are bores compensating for their lack of um, personality.

And here I thought the poor boys could form a line to the right.

Lots actually. Showing off is just tacky and borish behaviour.

At its core, this is probably an emotional issue. Most issues surrounding money usually are. Ultimately, it sounds like he's got a fear issue going on. And in some ways, with today's unstable economy, a certain amount of fear/caution is warranted. But it's certainly possible to go to far with this, and maybe he has. However, keep in mind most Americans go the opposite extreme and act as if everything will work out and than blame someone or something else when it doesn't (witness the huge number of people who took out crazy mortgages).

I know I became obsessed with saving because I had 3 near brushes with homelessness in the years I attended college and ended up declaring bankruptcy at age 21. I grew up in a comfortable middle class household, and those near brushes with homelessness were a real shocker for me. So, when I finally got a decent paying job, I saved, saved, and saved some more....because I didn't EVER want to repeat what I went through during those 6 financially unstable years of my life. I'm not saying your ex's situation is the same as mine, just giving you an example of why I was an obsessive saver.

I'm also not saying you're wrong for thinking what you think....just that's there's more to it than appears on the surface...and maybe you should try to understand people a little more on a deeper level instead of judging them.

If all you females truly don't care about money, why don't you stop expecting the man to always pay

Some of us don't need a man to pay, not do we want one for his money. I prefer to make my own money....and be with a man because I choose him, not his money.
