She Wanted to Invest Her Life-Changing Lottery Win Wisely, but Her Boyfriend Was Soon Demanding a New Tesla and Her Friends Expected Her to Pay for Everything

A woman recently shared a story online about how she won a nice chunk of money in the lottery. She wanted to be careful and invest it, but her boyfriend thinks she should buy him a car and a house. Here’s what she had to say.

“I recently won quite a lot of money in the lottery. It’s not the main prize, but it’s a life-changing amount in my country.”

Tough start

I grew up poor, very poor, and while I have worked my way up, my close family is still struggling,” she added. “I help, but I cannot fix everything; well, I couldn’t before.”

Getting advice

The woman deposited the money in a new account. She decided she wouldn’t touch a cent until she’d spoken to a financial advisor.

The woman does have plans for the money. She wants to use a little to enjoy life, some to buy her family apartments in better and safer areas, and some to invest.

In short, she wants to play it smart. Instead of having a lump sum, she wants to make investments that will grow and return a steady income so she and her family can live comfortably.

The only people who knew about her win were her boyfriend, Andy, and her family. He’s 30, and they’ve been together for around seven months. They still live in their own places.

Andy’s attitude toward the woman’s windfall is entirely different. He immediately wrote a list of items he needed and gave it to her before she spoke to her financial advisor. One of the items on his wishlist is a new Tesla.

He also thinks they should move in together. In other words, she should buy a house with a pool for them both. He’s also started talking about kids now that they can afford them.

The woman refused Andy’s requests. She told him that she would not spend a cent until she’d spoken to an advisor. However, this has angered him.

Insulting behavior

Andy has been calling her a “scrooge” and a “cheapskate” and even accusing her of not loving him.

To make matters worse, Andy has told all their friends about her lottery win. Now they expect the woman to fund nights out and have been very insulting when she refuses.

The woman was devastated. She never suspected Andy and her friends would turn on her like this. She wrote to an online forum to ask for advice, and she got some great advice.

The internet responded

One poster declared, “Ditch the boyfriend ASAP. Don’t buy him a pack of gum, let alone anything else. He’s trying to manipulate you with guilt (“If you loved me…”) and by telling mutual friends about your money. I’m so happy for you, and you’re using your money so well!”

Another commenter said, “Unfortunately, your boyfriend now sees you as an ATM, not a girlfriend. It’s NOT you; a sudden influx of money shows people’s true colors. He and your “friends” will not leave you alone about this either. They will suck you dry of the money and then dump you. I would dump him and block them, then move ASAP. You need new friends.”
