Money is always a delicate topic to talk about, most people don't like to disclose how much they earn and get uncomfortable when they hear about other people's expenditures. For men, money is always a source of intimidation as society has hardwired them to deem themselves as the breadwinner. It's hard to believe that even in today's day and age men are taken aback upon learning that the women they know are more wealthy than they are. A Redditor, notAGoldDiggerX, embarrassed her boyfriend by revealing how much she earns in front of his friends. She took to Reddit's AITA community and asked if she was wrong for "telling my boyfriend’s friends I make twice what he does when they called me a gold digger and he didn’t defend me?" she went on to explain the entire situation.

"I’m in a relationship with a guy who also works in tech. He makes 68k and I make 130k. I am a mechanical engineer at a robotics startup. He works at a more stable job doing programming at a large company." She continued, "He brought me to meet his friends at a party and they asked me about myself. His friends mostly work in tech too and talked about themselves in terms of their jobs.
I told them I’m a hiker, I do archery, I love road trips and camping and riding dirtbikes, etc. Basically talking about my hobbies because work is just a way to get paid to do the shit I love. It’s not how I define myself and it doesn’t come to mind when someone wants me to tell them about myself."
