What to expect when dating a rich man
So instead of telling her how you’re worth a million bucks, lead her through an experience where she feels like a million bucks.
A man who’s mastered the ability to provide and create. Make no mistake: leading with your padded “resume” is almost just as bad as telling a woman you live with your mom on a first date.
So when a handsome man I met at a party invited me to dinner, I didn't hesitate.
'Pick you up at seven, gorgeous,' he said in a voice that was half East End slang, half Prince Charles plummy vowels. I wondered, - clickety-clackety in a pair of sparkly Gina mules bought specially for the occasion - Nobu or maybe a spot of dinner at Babington House.
We’ve both seen it: A rich guy soiling his chances to find an intimate relationship, or really, any relationship, because he leads his conversations by directly flaunting his wealth. For the rich guy who doesn’t know better, this pattern repeats and worsens with each repetition.
While every other guy would kill to have his money, the rich guy directly hurts himself because of how he references his wealth, in his conversations.
Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.
He’d be wise to focus first on connecting on an emotional level when he meets women. In short: the rich guy must let go of his money and let her figure out he’s rich and successful later in the interaction. She can see the man as a fun, put together guy who knows how to go out there and get what’s his in the world. The rich guy subconsciously sees himself as valuable of his money. What does he do the next time he meets a quality woman? More talk of his money, his status, and his accomplishments. But even if not a direct money exchange, sure, showboating will attract some women. It’s never the money itself that’s damaging anybody’s intimate life. But here’s the thing: guys with money regularly make the mistake of implicitly placing their value upon their wealth. And because he doesn’t understand attraction and women, he incorrectly sees only one logical course of action. Of course, his money leads to some “relationships.” There’s the elephant in the room that includes prostitution, “sugar daddy” relationships, and the like. At the top of the stairs that night, the PR who had organised the party whispered the name of each new arrival, so he could greet them like long lost buddies.I counted quite a few famous industrialists and a smattering of celebs that evening, all of whom he schmoozed with a ruthlessness I had never witnessed.
”If it’s the latter, and he’s not happy with the dating life he’s created lately, he must reverse engineer his conversations.
