Money conversations are hard! But at the same time, you kind of have to talk about it at some point.

For me, I'm more than happy to buy my partner gifts, take her out for dinners, and pay for the trip. But at the same time, I have to be realistic about our financial situation, and that I can't afford to pay for everything, at least not yet. Even If I can, my partner wouldn't let me, she is financially independent, has her job and has her source of income. She appreciates the gesture, my good intention, and the fact that I'm happy to spend money to make her happy. But she would get uncomfortable if this goes to the extreme.
So, for me it's about each person's financial situation, and also about the reciprocal give and take.
