Some girls are just out there for a new sugar daddy, but you’d never know it until your credit card is already maxed out and your car’s being repossessed. Regardless of your means, gold diggers are everywhere, and they’ll drain you of every red cent to look and feel the best. Here are some tips to weed them out and keep them out of your scene.
If she’s out of your league, she’s after your wallet.
So you’ve come into some money, and now the girl who wouldn’t even be seen in the same room as you is finally paying attention. She’s always nearby, smoking hot and hot for you – or is she? Hate to say it, bro, but probably not. The first thing you’ll notice after coming into any kind of wealth is that the “quality” of chicks around you is likely to change. If she wouldn’t talk to you before you were rolling in Franklins, she’s not interested in you now. Cut her off and shut her down before those hot little hands can move down into your pockets.
She’s living in a material world.
If your girl is only interested in materialistic activities, you’ve got a problem on your hands. While it can be nice to have a girl who is there for you at night and at the mall all day, this almost always cleans out your wallet before it even opens hers. The problem here is that the only joy in a gold diggers’ life is through material wealth. Who cares if the shirt she wants is one-quarter the price at the boutique downtown? She wants the expensive one. She wants to be able to tell everyone how much it cost, because to her it proves her worth as a human being to have only the “best” of everything. Of course, “best” really means “most expensive.”
Read into her questions.
Is she really curious about where you live and what you do? Questions like these can seem simple, but for a gold-digger they’re just ways of figuring out your net worth. That doesn’t mean don’t answer them, in fact you should answer them with as much detail as possible. Explain what you like about your house, with comparisons to your favorite place as a kid – “Oh, the place I’m in now is nice, but I’ve got to say, it doesn’t even compare to when I lived out in Montana with my parents as a kid.” Tell her what you do for a living, starting with what shaped you into that position – “I’m a business analyst, which is funny since I started as an art history major in college…” A gold digger won’t care about any of these things, but if she’s really interested she’ll dig deeper into your personal experiences instead of the details of your financial position. If she repeats her question, or adds any questions about the money in your area of expertise, you’ve caught her red-handed, and she loses this round.
It’s true that finding love can be costly, but holding onto it shouldn’t leave you bankrupt. Keep your guard up and your gold buried where only you can reach it.
