So, my girlfriend was in my room and she noticed I have tons of cd's everywhere. We've been dating for about 6 months now. So, she makes a little comment saying I've spend more on music then her. I just laugh and it goes away. A little bit later she starts bringing it up. Now, (today) she actually went out and calculated how much money I have spent on music compared to her. Needless to say is that my music total came to about $1,200. Now she is really making a big deal. Should I dump this chick now that she keeps complaining I don't spend enough on her? I'm also in highschool so I don't feel the need to get involved seriously with any girl.

So how much money have you guys spent on music?

I've spend fortunes on my music and DVD collection.

She actually brought a calculator up, man? She's being seriously materialistic. Tell her to get over it. If she doesn't, dump her.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.
High school relationships rarely last.

I've probably spent about $500 on music and the rest got from a friend who has an 80 gig hard drive full of stuff. I didn't ask how he got it.
tell her to **** off if she REQUIRES that her boyfriend spend most of HIS money on HER... you get her SOME presents right? How much of her cash does she spend on ****ing shoes and clothes, man? Tell her if you're gonna spend all your money on her, she can do the same for you. Then you can both be broke and have a bunch of stuff you didn't really want.

also... maybe 1400 bucks on CD's so far...
I've got somewhere in the ballpark of 200 cds, 160 of which I've bought, figuring 14 dollars per cd so that's like $2,240 spent on music.

yeah, I buy her some shit and stuff. She's really materialistic though, and I find it odd cause she is one of the really preppy, hot chicks at my school and I, well I just listen to alot of black metal and play football

And yeah, she brought up a friggen' calculator on me I just laughed and then you should have seen her then

It's not like you didn't listen to music before you met her, honestly man, your girl sounds pretty dumb, tell her (nicely) to stop stressing about such stupid things

Anyway, I've probably spent about at least a grand on all my music and music dvds, then if you start including my stereo and stuff (guitars, amps...) the prices start getting pretty steep....

I've spent a shitload on music, cds and not to mention equipment. I would stop buying her anything and see how long it takes her to break up with you. Its the most dickish cowardly thing possible!

Well CDs are $20 most times... so you've got only like 60 CDs.
I've got over 100 albums between me and my friend, so that's a big chunk of change right there.
But hey, you're a musician. That's like an artist buying paintings or a chef buying food. Well, everyone buys food but you know what I mean. Like fancy food or something.

I've spent quite a bit on music, never really calculated it though. As for your other problem...

Your level of caring for her= how much money you spend on her?

Dump this shallow, materialistic ****.
All I spend money on is music. and some art supplies.

Must be a few k's by now. I don't download too much, just a bit when my friends care to help.
Probably somewhere around $200 on just Cds. We're not counting guitar equipment are we?

I have loads of cd's, but I don't know how much they cost.(To Captainofsmug), you should really dump her, she probably goes out with you for the stuff you sometimes give her, hence the calculator.
Lol, my cousin's girlfriend is awesome, she's spent $1500+ of stuff on him. Anyway, let's see:
$20 + $9.95 = $29.95

i'd say probably like $800 ish maybe.. not that much reall yet

Either dump her or, if she keeps complaining, show her Dawn of The Black Hearts and say this is what you'll she'll end up like if she doesn't stop complaing, minus the suicide though.
On CD's, my stereo and sub, amps, guitars, strings, etc, I'd say around the $2500 mark
