That was a turning point for me; I decided I would never again marry a man who was irresponsible, miserly and poor because it is just as easy to love a man who has a personal relationship with Neiman Marcus and he pays his house note on time.
Here are 7 gold-digging techniques that inspire a man to treat you like a queen.
1. Be the total package.
Men spend money on women who are classy and confident. They’re attracted to a woman’s warm smile, stylish hair-do, and makeup, designer clothing, legs and cleavage (without looking slutty). Your groomed appearance plus your intriguing, mysterious demeanor tell him you are a quality woman who is worth pursuing.
2. Let him be a gentleman.
Don’t be quick to pull out your wallet. If you always treat a man like your equal (you pay your way on a date or a trip) you will squelch his desire to impress you, please you and pursue you.
3. Be generous.
Occasionally pay for his cocktails, invite him to lunch or pick up event tickets. After several dates, invite him to your home for a movie or dinner date. It’s not the amount that counts; it’s the thought that affects a man.
4. Be independent.
Show a man that you are self-sufficient. Don’t marvel at his expensive car, his jewelry, his house or stuff. Your attitude and actions tell him you have a great life, you’re financial stable and you’re not impressed with his money.
5. Drop him a hint.
Let him know you like something when shopping together. When he says, “Let me get these shoes for you,” express in one elongated sentence: “Oh, you don’t have to do that you’re so sweet thank you,” and then tell the clerk your shoe size.
6. Be appreciative.
Men crave respect and recognition. Let a guy do something nice for you and then express your delight. A man who feels valued, appreciated and needed will want to give you the world.
7. Ask for his help.
Pretend like your hands are full while shopping together. Ask him to hold the items you intend to purchase; don’t offer to take them back, walk confidently to the checkout counter and wait to see if he offers to pay. (Okay, this one is naughty!)
Gifts are wonderful, but dating a man strictly for his money gives you and gold-digging a bad name.
