I can’t be the only one with this conflict. We’ve been together almost 3 years. Right before we met, I made a decent investment into crypto. By now, I’ve made good money, but it’s not like I’m rich or anywhere close. I really just want to keep holding and going to work every day as usual.
The reason why I haven’t told her; she is the arbiter of paychecks. Her financial responsibility is similar to if you handed a 9 year old your life savings and sent them into Toys R Us unattended. Money spending and savings is just about the only issue of contention between us. If I showed her the account, I’m afraid of the “conversation” that would follow.
I have to tell her some day, I know. Personally, I don’t think the day is quite near. We might fumble through another crypto crash, but I believe the market has a lot of growing to do. The longer I wait, the more awkward it’s going to be when I finally tell her, but, the larger the account.
I don’t want to start spending all of this money, but I also don’t want to feel like a liar to the woman I’ve been with. I have one friend I’ve told this to. He asks if I even love her, and of course I do.
Were you in my shoes, what would you do?
