We all imagine it; getting a sweet car, taking this babe out to a fantastic dinner then having her back at a swanky hotel room for a private party. Imagination is about as far as a lot of us go, but there are some dudes who take dating above their means to whole new levels. But is it a good idea? We took a harder look at it and now we can give you some pros and cons to breaking out a visa just for dinners.
It’s Great Because
It’s much easier to impress a date if you are showing off how much buying power you have. Even if you’re only pretending, Irocs get more attention than Hondas and five star dining is a lot more impressive than Big Boy. It’s much easier to knock a girl’s socks (and other items) off if you at least appear to be a man of means.
This will lead you to having one or two high quality dates that are more likely to have your desired outcome. When you do this, you can also keep chicks at a distance. The image of a businessman who is only in town from time to time and wants to have a fun time is pretty easy to maintain if you keep it friendly and don’t try for any deeper connections. If you’re out to be a playboy every few months, dating above your means can be just the way to do it.
It Sucks Because
Money is a huge issue when you’re dating way above your means. If you’re doing it that means you’re probably maxing your credit card out after a few dates. When you’ve hit the stopping point, the fun is officially done till you’ve paid that bad boy off. You need to be smart and know how to surf balances from card to card and be on top of exactly how much you have in credit. The best ways to kill a high end date are the words ″Sir, your card’s been declined″.
Since you’re dating outside of your means you aren’t going to be going on many dates. If you’re the sort of dude who wants to be out every weekend you better keep it to what you can afford. The major problem with dating above your means for many dudes is the waiting period while they are paying off their cards. Or at least paying them down to a point where they can become Tony Stark again.
Last but not least, there is always the chance that she could catch you. This would officially terminate any more dating from her. It could also get word spread around that you’re an imposter, thus blackballing you from all of the high end chicks in your area. If you’re serious about doing this you have to be on top of your game. Don’t ever get too involved and don’t get ahead of yourself on your spending.
