This is just my take on things but it seems to me that there is a whole lot more going on than security in the future. If the person who is asking the question expects to make a life that gradually gets more and more prosperous (in every way) than it is now..and the bf is saying he does not have the same needs and goals that is not only about money it is about the quality one wants for thier life...the comfort one needs from the life.

Not just to be comfortable with the same old thing (status quo) is a good thing because that is how we change the world. the focus of so many people on money (just for them-selves, not with dreams of the way it can save the world) is disgusting to me too! BUT ...If a person wants to break up with their partner because they are no longer satisfying their emotional needs in various ways that is a good reason... and if he makes her feel insecure about the future with no reassurances that they will have a decent life...that is not good.
Honey, just be sure that it is you he is not satisfying and do not let others talk you out of loving someone.
The road of love is rocky and serene...both...it is no playground all of the time and it is not for the weak.
Be strong and realise that you may have to look closer at your feelings, about your relationship. deciding if you felt insecure before others worried you about your lover.
anyway...I had to say something. For me LOVE...Love is VERY important...money not too very...if you just want a nice simple life.
YET...If your needs run more into power and influence, you must decide...that takes some money. Both things are good. What is a world without it's leaders?
Maybe you two have a different destiny and maybe you have the same one, the beauty part is you have the power to decide, (but you must live with and accept your decision) and move into your future without a fear.

my parents think he won't be my future husband by the gap we had in financial condition.they want to find a guy who is several years older than me,then the guy will take good care of me in the future life.
and the friend surrounded me have the same opinions.they thought i deserve a better guy.
but we get together for 3-4 years till now from my college.i found very comfortable when i be with him.he will make me laught by his stupic jokes.i like him just as he becomes my intimate family member.i don't think that is love now.and i think i will dump him while i find a better guy.
although i think that is very cruel and indifferent,i can not give my rest life to this man who lacks of sense of security.
but compare love with "bread",which is more important??and how to estimate who is your perfect half??
need your advice !! :cry:

Your parents have their point to advise you that. It is normal thinking of Asian people, especially generation like your parents and mine. I totally agree with Cloudbed that loving & getting married are two different things. It depend very much on what are your needs? If the answer is "dozen of bread", then let go to find bread. If you think a normal life is your need, then let to calculate how two of you can "put bread together" to survive. Just one thing I want to say, the richer is not always the happier.

To SleepTear:
I think you are indeed going to the extreme. Who gave you the stupid idea that "most of us Chinese disgusting"? When it comes to marriage, everyone, no matter in which contry, speak which language, has what kind of culture will consider his or her patener from all aspects. That is the way we will have a better and happy life in the future. How comes you say it as "CHINESE IS DISGUSTING"? Let me ask you if it's not offensive, would you marry a beggar if you are saying you, yourself is not the so-called economically-minded person, without considering what suggested by your friends and families? If your answer is no, then would you call yourself disgusting; if yes, you are indeed insane, and I don't believe this answer at all.
Clearly, she is not money pursuer. If she were, why she loved him before. Her bf earned less than she did from the very beginning. She could just find some rich guys without following her own heart. It's just after a long time, the feeling has gone. What is your priciple judging people? From what you posted here, I found you are not mature enough now. Try to learn not judging others too quick, and be respectful to others. Thank you.

Takeshi, I can understand how you feel now. It's like you are not sure if he is the right person in your life. On one hand, you cannot get rid of him, because you still keep the sweet memeries you had before, which means you may still love him. At least, you enjoy the time you were together. On the other hand, you think you don't love him now, because there is no sparkles. Well, I am just telling you that when you fall love with sb at the very beginning, you will have lots of sparkles indeed. You cannot think of a life without him. However, with time flying, feeling is changing. There will be no secret between you when you know each others more. Consequencely, the sparkles will be less and less. I have learned that love will become the normal feeling as family members as it develops, like our parents. When they were seeing each others, they went to moives, went out for walking etc. but now, they are just making money, raising children, cooking... no sparkle any more, but I will say they still love each other, because they decide to be together and will be like this forever, till the end of their life. That's love! True love.
Here, I am saying that what really matters is whether you have same topic when you are together? if you are happy with him? ask yourself would you spend the rest of your life with this guy? do you trust him? You will know what you should do then.
