I M(21) was dumped by my 3 year long GF F(20) for saving too much money

I think I have an interesting take on this as I have kind of experienced the opposite in social experiences and dating. I went from rags to riches basically. I grew up poor. Most of my life. My family was always that way. My parents were able to feed us and cloth us with thrift store clothes and we had the very basics but sometimes not even that. I grew up being the kid that wears hand me downs and cheap shoes and never had a phone. And when I did get a phone it was cheap not a smart phone like all the other kids had. I missed out on a lot of experiences because my parents were strict also and didn’t let me go out much. When I turned 17 I got a job at the local grocery store. This was back in 2013 and I was only making $8 an hour & working 20-30 hours a week, but damn! I will never forget the feeling of my first paycheck. It was only like $190 for a 1 week period but that was so much money to me. After i graduated high school I started working full time and saw my checks grow along with pay raises. I eventually left that job and was able to obtain a better paying full time job. From there I have worked my way up over the years and am very comfortable for a 24 year old. I never went to college or served in the military like a lot of my friends did. Just went straight into the workforce and been here since. I wouldn’t call myself rich but for a single 24 year old man with no kids, I find myself having money I don’t know what to do with regularly and I save and have a retirement account and I also buy stock and invest in companies. Probably for the past 3 years now I’ve been making a comfortable salary and every time I want to go out with friends...cost always seems to be a concern. My friends are always broke. Most of them recently graduating college or still taking classes. I have all this vacation time and tenure built up and I have more free time then them it seems also. There have been a lot of times I’ve invited my closest friends on little trips or to places and they explained they didn’t have money, I paid for the trip myself. Just to be a good friend, but it’s it’s starting to get difficult and frustrating. I drive a nicer car, I usually buy more premium products in most categories so everything I have is more costly. I don’t know if I have to make new friends who are financially in the same boat as me rn just wait for my friends to prosper more. Both? Idk. It’s tough. I feel like a drag most of the time and then some friends don’t let you pay for anything to that makes it hard too. I love to go camping and hiking and travel and that can all be costly when you factor in all expenses and it sucks having to do it alone a lot! But idk, maybe time will tell. Sorry about your situation though. I think it’s wrong for her to outright leave you like that. She should have voiced it more and tried talking. Don’t stop saving bro. It’s better to be extra repaired for a rainy day cause sometimes it floods man. I save money too, probably not as much as I should, but enough to sustain me for a good period of time. You’ll find someone who won’t care about that shit eventually!
