The original poster (OP) is in a relationship. Her boyfriend works in tech and makes $68,000 and she earns $130,000.
She’s an Engineer

She Went to a Party to Meet His Friends
Her boyfriend took her to a party to meet his friends who mostly work in tech as well.
She Talked About Her Hobbies More
OP says she doesn’t like to be defined by her work so she likes to discuss her hobbies more like hiking, archery, taking road trips, camping and riding dirt bikes.
She Refused to Talk About Work
One of his friends asked OP about work and she said “Oh gosh, I don’t wanna talk about work at a party!” She really wasn’t in the mood to discuss her job.
She Made Herself Sound Poor
In conversation she recalls saying things like car dealership repairs are a ripoff and telling her boyfriend that her childhood neighbor’s trailer caught on fire and she was going to visit and help. She thinks she gave the impression that she doesn’t have much money.
His Drunk Friends Started Saying Mean Things
Some of her boyfriend’s friends (not the close ones though) started making jokes about OP growing up in a trailer and being a gold digger.
Her Boyfriend Stayed Quiet
Her boyfriend didn’t jump in and defend OP. Instead he just remained quiet, which he later blames on being high.
She Feels Hurt that He Didn’t Respond
She feels hurt that her boyfriend didn’t stand up to his friends and defend her.
Then She Became Angry
OP says she became irritated with his friends and asked “Now why the hell would you say that when I make twice what he does?” She continued on with her rant “There ain’t no gold to dig here, not with him or anyone at this party. So do y’all think I’m cheap, or do y’all think I’m stupid?”
Her Boyfriend Was Upset and Wanted to Leave
Clearly her boyfriend’s ego was hurt as he was angry that she told his friends that she makes twice the amount than he does. He says now his friends will think she isn’t nice. OP feels she had a right to defend herself when he didn’t speak up.
The Readers Respond
Hundreds of readers responded with a similar comment about how he was too high to respond when OP was called a gold digger but still sober enough to get angry at OP for defending herself.
“So your boyfriend was too high to say anything to support you but sober enough to complain when you rightly called him and his rude mates out?”
Is This a Red Flag?
“Yeah total red flag. My husband is super proud I earn much more than him, people that love you are proud of your achievements not humiliated by them.”
