I have just started dating this guy that I've known already for a few years. At first I wasn't attracted to him, but now I really see that we have a lot in common. The thing that bothers me is that he comes from a very wealthy family and I am not so fortunate. It makes me feel bad when he starts talking about all his possessions and trips to other countries. I feel like I'm not good enough. Should I keep seeing him even though this bothers me?
I think this young man for all his wealth is just trying to impress you. How does he act when you are together? Is he kind, helpful when you go out? Does he consider your feelings instead of bragging about his wealth? And whose wealth is it - his or his father's? That is really no way to get to know one another. Remember that money is round and it can roll near and yon. And when it is gone - will he be considerate and affectionate or will he be moaning about his money?
If you like his "line", make the most of it while you are with him, but be very sure of your relation with him before you get too involved.
Think carefully. Good luck.
