Over the summer and into the early part of fall, I dated a guy — we slept at his place after nights on the town, carved out time for couples-esque weekend activities, and in general, felt high with the buzz that accompanies a new romance.
That feeling came to a screeching halt when I wound up in the ER, where I was diagnosed with a UTI — and slapped with a four-figure hospital bill upon release.
Then I started to do the math: Aside from the bill, I'd spent close to a thousand dollars on Uber rides, at least $500 on grooming (waxes, manicures, and pedicures), and plenty on clothes. Not to mention dinners that were, frankly, out of my budget (because I felt obligated to keep pace
with his spending on me).
We eventually (and amicably) broke up, but I felt foolish for squandering so much on what amounted to a multi-month hookup. How much, exactly? Take a deep breath and then see how it all adds up.Next: Manage Your Love Life Like Your Career
