How to convince a girlfriend to pay smaller part for flight ticket (details)

    • Thread Starter

    Hi allMe and my girlfriend want to meet. She wants me to buy the ticket already but she is not 100% if she can come (long story basically her parents doesn't know yet she wanna come here from usa to uk during christmas but she says she will anyway even if they say no.her mum is more okay with it however she talked to her mum about it and she was fine but said that dad probably wont allow.The ticket is about 500£ Its not that im stingy or something but im alao not rich so i would wanna tell her somehow if she could pay idk 200£ and i pay the rest ( mostly because it will motivate her to talk seriously to her parents about it because it will be also her money. I could pay her back later or something it just that if she will put some money also it will make her come here for sure and not at the end "oh im realy sorry" and 500+ wasted but if she will pay also she will be more determined Now the question is how do i tell her that so i dont sound stupid or something ?Thanks all for help

    Honesty is the best. Tell her how you feel about this- say that you can't pay the full amount at the moment.

    Just tell her it would be fair if you both went halfers. Communication is key
