The main problem of dating outside your class is lack of shared experience
The main problem of dating or marrying outside your class is the lack of shared experience. This is why I always advise ladies not to date or marry down. It doesn’t end well in most cases.
In such relationships where a woman is more intelligent, exposed, educated, refined and rich, they are always walking on egg shells so as not to come off as proud, arrogant and boastful.
Anything these women say or do causes problems because their men feel they are bragging about their intelligence, wealth and experience. Insecurity on the part of the men reigns supreme in such relationships.
Some women can’t even contribute to intelligent conversations without being accused of trying to show off and overshadow their men. Being in such a relationship is tiring.
A Twitter user, Ehi Enabs shed more light on this issue. She said:
“The main problem of dating or marrying outside your class is the lack of shared experience.
One person will be talking and the other one go think say e dey brag.
Or the day you see your upper class bae physically recoil from something you like because the poverty stinks.
Next thing, you don take am personal because of insecurity.”
Does social class matter in relationships? Yes, it does. I know some ladies from upper class go for guys they have nothing in common with and claim love covers a multitude of shortcomings.
But experience somehow teaches these women that love is not enough to keep a relationship especially if your guy constantly feels insecure and inadequate because you are way up there and he’s way down here.
As a woman, your social class can influence both your interests and your values, which makes a difference in your relationships. This is who you have become and how you have been living your life so it will definitely rub off on your love life.
Even though social status is not the only influence on relationships and marriages, it matters a lot and should be recognized because some partners can’t deal with it successfully and it’s sad.
