It depends. If we are just talking about money in a general sense then it's cool. I don't like when people question how I bought something or how much it costs. I know someone who is always asking ppl how much their rent is or how much something costs and I think it's tacky unless in certain context.

We have a no new friends thing for the last decade or so Lol, but i talk generally about money with my friends. We love to pass on ways to make more by working smarter, not harder.

We all are in the same socio-economic bracket too though, so specifics really need not be discussed.

I don't mind discussing money. Just don't expect me to give you a cent.

I know how you feel.
Not trying to brag:I grew up fortunate and luckily still am. My family is not Trump rich, but we are well off. My salary is none of my friends' business and the same vice versa. The majority of my friends are of the same socioeconomic status but some aren't. They are the ones who sometimes make me Sleepy. I've never liked and still don't like when some of my friends make off comments. We don't really discuss money but you can tell who is doing well and who is struggling a bit.
Over the weekend I had a lunch date with a friend. She called me last minute to cancel and said something like "well we all don't have money like you to be going out to eat all of the time"Which I don't. Even though she said it in jest it still made me feel somewhat Ermm

I say you should let her know how you feel or let her go.

My crew and I are tight nit- 20-30 years, we knew when we had $100 between all of us (struggling students) and salary, severances, annuities, investments, disability, unemployment, child support paymemts, alimony- we know it all, because we share everything. But we dont feel entitled to find out, we just discuss things very openly. That being said, Im not in the business of discussing my money with random folks all willy nilly. I've found, especially since I've been unemployed, folks that are just loose associates have been very inquisitive about my finances and the means for which I survive.

I talk about it openly whether I have nothing or whether I am doing well. < id="adlesse_unifier_magic_element_id" style="display:none;">

My best friends and I discuss money freely. No big deal. I'd never talk about it with someone I'm not close with or don't trust.

If I don't know or trust you, don't worry bout what I make or how I spend it. As long as I don't have a hand out for yours, we good.

I'm just curious as to why you don't think I should trust a person like that.. What's your opinion?

I don't know if this has been said before, but this "new friendship" of yours does not look promising. Watch your back.

This...

and I hope OP checked the girl. Whether you pay for everything out of your own pocket or you have a sponsor/SO who takes care of you is none of her business. She sounds messy & jealous.

ETA:

I learned a long time ago not to assume that because someone has nice "things" that they're financially okay. For the past few years, I've run in a circle full of people in the high profile blogger circuit. Lots of them are being gifted ridiculous things - including cars, nice vacays, etc. So, on the surface their life could be considered "enviable". But, that doesn't always mean their bank accounts are matching the lifestyle they're living.

Long story short, my bank account is my business & your bank account is your business. Unless we're discussing how to collectively move up the ladder, your financial issues are none of my concern.
