Nobody is saying you’re a gold digger, or that you won’t consider dating a guy who can only afford to take you to fast food restaurants. But there is a chance that, at some point, you’ve thought to yourself, “Life will be easier if I happen to fall in love with a rich man.” That depends on what you value in life, and what easy means to you. Financially, things would be easier. If you wanted to send your children to a prestigious college, it wouldn’t even be a question; you’d just write the check. Emotionally, however, it may not be easier, and messed up emotions are much harder to mend than messed up bank accounts and credit scores. Dating an extremely rich man may not be the way to go, actually. Financially stable—of course. Filthy rich? Probably not. Here is why it’s hard to find a man who is extremely rich and loyal.
You may not be a gold digger, but gold diggers certainly do exist! There are women out there who will happily throw themselves at your partner, just because he has money. And some of those women are very good at coming off as compassionate, loving, genuine people.
Let’s make this clear: women who men would otherwise never get (and they know it) will make themselves available to wealthy men. If your partner couldn’t get a woman’s attention until he was 30, that probably did a number on his ego, and he may be looking to repair it.
It’s gross, but extremely wealthy men tend to stay in the best room in the best hotel. They always get the cream of the crop. This can make them begin to believe that their partner should be that too—that means the best body, the best face, the best outfits, the best makeup and so on and so on. Like I said, it’s gross, but it can be their mindset.
They see people as commodities
For most men to become extremely successful, they had to put their emotions aside a lot and see people and relationships as commodities. It is hard for them to turn that off, even in their romantic lives.
They’re used to getting what they want
In every other area of their life, they ask, and they shall receive. But you’re a human being and their romantic partner at that. So just because your partner wants you to do this or that, doesn’t mean you’re going to, which can irritate him.
And now, they get it pretty easily
Since extremely wealthy men are used to getting what they want instantly, they may not be willing to put in the work it takes to have a healthy, balanced and loving romantic relationship; they may just look for it where it’s quicker and easier.
They think they know what’s best for everyone
There’s a reason you see a lot of infidelity among celebrities and the filthy rich; rich people tend to be (not all of them) rather intelligent. When a man is so intelligent that it makes him filthy rich, he starts to think he knows what’s best for everyone. He tells himself, “It’s best that I cheat on my wife, so she can still have the lifestyle she enjoys and I can have my kicks.”
You’ll never understand his stress level
The truth is that with money comes stress, and wealthy men rarely feel that their partners understand the stress they’re under. When they feel this disconnect, they may look to connect with a wealthy woman who relates to them.
They travel a lot
There’s a good chance your wealthy man travels a lot. That means he spends a lot of time away from you, missing the female touch, and having nobody to keep an eye on him.
Or are bored
Some wealthy men have already accumulated all of their money and no longer need to work, which leaves them bored. As we know, idle hands are the devil’s playground…
They need their money to woo you
Wealthy men are used to their money doing the work for them. They can usually just spend money on a woman, and she’ll react as if they did something thoughtful and genuine. When money stops wooing you, they may become frustrated, and look for women who are impressed by it.
They have rich friends
Rich men run in rich circles. That means they tend to run with men who cheat, talk about cheating, go to high-end establishments where women are paid to wear small outfits and sit on their laps and pour them drinks.
You have to bend to their schedule
Wealthy men typically want their partners to be available to them the second they are free and able to do something fun. They feel that their lives and schedules are more important and that you should bend to them. If you can’t, they’ll find someone who will so they never need to feel lonely.
They often don’t want you to work
Wealthy men often don’t want you to work but rather (as stated above) want you around whenever they need you. The arguments that arise from this may make them want to cheat.
And if you work, they feel abandoned
If you do end up working, your wealthy man might look for someone who doesn’t work to keep them company.
They feel threatened by your success
Wealthy men are usually pretty competitive! They didn’t get to where they are by not being competitive. And so, if you become independently wealthy, they may feel threatened, and look for someone who doesn’t have her own money.
They get off on providing
Furthermore, if you can provide for yourself very well, then wealthy men can begin to feel useless. They like the power of being the provider and might look to be that elsewhere.
They chase status
Wealthy men usually run in circles that value, obsess about and constantly discuss status. If you aren’t wealthy, your partner might start to feel pressured to seek a partner who has a higher status than you do, to keep up with his friends.
They want to continue their legacy
Wealthy men usually think they are God’s gift to this earth and that earth would be lucky to have mini versions of them. For that reason, they may want you to have more kids than you want. When you can’t provide that, they look for someone who can.
They can be unhappy
Being extremely rich can actually make people rather unhappy which makes them look for ways to fill the void. You get the idea.
