Dating just for the money
When you start to discuss bigger matters with the person you are dating, you are in essence letting them know that you are thinking further down the road.
That must be done with some care, since one of you might think it’s all right to bring that up just a month into things and the other person may find themselves looking for the big neon sign that says “This Way Out of the Relationship!
It sounds great on paper – dating someone with money – but there are special considerations to take if you decide to pursue or date someone who has a lot more money than you.
Yes, dating someone with money has a lot of advantages in that he or she offers the prospect of having a nice home in a good area, fancy vacations, and the chance to engage in activities and outings that many others can’t afford.
Maybe talk about how your family viewed money or what you’d do if you had a million dollars.
These are the questions that matter, not the question about whether he or she has money.
But what about one step before that: How do you talk about it when you’re still dating?
Dating someone does not yet have the same long-term outlook as being married or engaged, but it’s a big step.
Remember that money is all about the surface, and it’s only after months of getting to know a person that you see their true personality and character.
The truth is that wealthy men and women have just as many hang-ups and emotional issues as their less well-off counterparts, so catch yourself if you start idealizing him or her.
