Gold digging has been going on since the dawn of time. Usually, these situations are pretty obvious, but for some reason, the men that date gold diggers either don’t care or they are completely oblivious to it. In the dating world, there are really no set rules. For example, when you go out for dinner, who pays? There are huge debates about whether Dutch is the way to go or whether a man should be a gentleman and always pay for dinner. If you do allow a guy to pay for your dinner, does that mean you are a gold digger? Probably not. A gold digger is usually someone that is looking for a free ride and it’s usually not just with dinners. They want gifts, a home, fancy things, and they don’t want to pay for any of it.
If someone is just dating another person because of their money, than they are usually a gold digger. Rich people need to watch out for that. It can be hard to tell if a girl is a gold digger because a lot of them come off as very loving and sweet. We’re not sure why they do it aside from just trying to get a free ride in life. But we are about to go inside the minds of these manipulative chicks. Check out these confessions from real-life gold diggers.
15 She’s Just Too Good
Sometimes it can be really hard to spot a gold digger. They are usually very manipulative, so it can be hard to realize you are even being used for your money. This girl isn’t even apologizing for her gold-digging ways. “I enjoy being a gold digger. But men don’t even realize that I am. I’m just that good at it.” It looks like whoever this girl is dating never saw her coming. That’s the problem with being rich and trying to date; you never know who’s really genuinely interested in you. These gold diggners use them and then they move on to the next one and the guy is usually left trying to figure out what went wrong in the first place.
14 It’s Exhausting
This gold digger doesn’t like having to work for her money; she thought it would be easier to snag a rich dude. Well, unfortunately, relationships are work, even for a gold digger. You have to put a certain amount of time in or it’s not going to be believable. “Being a gold digger is so much harder than I thought it would be. I might as well go out and get a job.” Yes, that would be our sentiments exactly. We’re not sure what’s so hard about being a gold digger, but she’s clearly not as happy as she thought she would be. Maybe she got a look at reality and realized that taking someone for a ride isn’t as easy as she thought it would be. She should go and get a job instead of expecting someone to pay her way.
13 She Can’t Stand Him
It’s pretty sad when you are engaged to someone that you don’t even like. In this case, the gold digger doesn’t even like the man that she is about to marry, but she can’t stop her gold digging ways. Is it all really worth it? “He pisses me off more than any other person I've ever met. The only thing that helps me keep my sanity is that he works away for two months then is home for a week then gone again. I hate the way he dresses. He tries to dress like a Hollister model, but he's short, fat, and a nerd. His s*xual fantasies disgust me. What I'm starting to realize is that I'm spoiled and I love it. The engagement ring on my finger is a 2-carat princess cut that is my dream ring. I have a brand new car that I got for our anniversary. He is currently working on finances for a house we want. I rationalize it because I love him sometimes.” Well, as long as she loves him sometimes then it’s okay, right?
12 She Loves The Whole Package
Are you really a gold digger if you love the rich men that you are with? Now that’s a tricky one. It seems as if this gold digger loves everything about her situation including the man. Does that make it okay then to date someone just for their money? She admits that she loves men just as much as their money, so who’s losing here? “Why is being a gold digger bad? I love money and I love men, but I love it more when they’re combined.” Well, at least she's honest about it. If she does genuinely love the men that she is with, then I guess there isn’t anything wrong with her dating one that is rich.
11 The Hot Girl
If you are naturally beautiful, do you use that beauty to reel in the guy of your choice? This girl is hot and she figures there’s a reason for it. When you’re hot, you have a higher chance of landing a great guy with a lot of money. She’s not taking any chances in life. She’s hot, so she’s going to use that to her advantage. “I’m a gold digger! I am hot, might as well get something out of it. So, what? Life sucks anyway!” She definitely has a great attitude, right? We can just imagine she must be a joy to be around. Sarcasm aside, this girl really has no clue what life is all about and being hot and rich isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. We feel sorry for the poor guy that has to put up with this one.
10 She’s Attracted To Wealth
This university student says that she is attracted to wealth. She says she loves the idea that all her bills are paid for and she has nothing to worry about. We can imagine there is certainly some appeal to that. After all, you don’t have to work hard and you can spend your money on whatever you want. But whatever happened to true love? “I just find it attractive – some people like dark hair, some like blue eyes, I just like a giant wallet,” she said. “There is always a sort of persona that I like in rich men — the confidence of being able to look after you. There is that 1950s housewife thing, I feel confident being that person, I don’t have to worry about paying the bills.” She has tried dating normal men but has always returned to the rich men because they can take care of her.
9 It’s Not An Easy Gig
This woman says that being a gold digger comes with certain requirements and we can just imagine. For one, you have to stay fit because wealthy men have to make appearances at events and they want a prize on their arm when doing so. Also, competition is everywhere; there are plenty of beautiful women that would just love to steal your place with a wealthy man. “Everyone is different, with money or not, but men with money are always at social outings, so looking good and being presentable is definitely an attribute. Nobody wants to rock up with Ms. Tubby to a conference. Staying fit, as well as being bubbly and socially apt, is a must. If you are with men with money there’s always going to be competition, that’s the number one thing to remember.” That’s something to keep in mind.
8 A Confused Gold Digger
This woman admits to being a gold digger but also says she wouldn't leave a poor man for one that has money. We’re not sure if she’s confused about what a gold digger means but typically, it does mean you will go after the money. “Yes, I am a gold digger. It does not mean that I won’t date someone who doesn’t have money. It also doesn’t mean that I will leave them for someone who does have money.” We’ll just give this girl the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she would settle down with a man without money and give up her gold-digging ways. Only time will tell with this gold digger.
7 Stay In Line
One gold digger said that the one thing she doesn’t like about dating a rich man is that they expect you to do as they say. We suppose, if they are footing the bill for everything, then maybe they do expect you to be on your best behavior. “I can’t stand the neediness. Quite often, they are in need of attention. That gets to me a little bit and it’s always them calling the shots, so you have to be submissive,” she said. “I put up with it even though it’s not the person I am.” We’re sure that there is a lot that you have to put up with in order to live the gold-digging life. Most men that are paying a girl’s bills are going to expect a lot in return.
6 She’s Honest
If you tell a man that you are a gold digger and he dates you anyway, does it make it okay? This girl says that she is always honest about what she wants and guys are more than happy to oblige. If a man doesn’t care that a girl is only in it for his money, then he’s probably only there for her looks. She feels no shame or guilt when it comes to being in these relationships because she makes her intentions known to the men before they get involved. Sounds fair, right? “I guess they know, but I’m really upfront; I tell them ‘if you can’t support me, I can’t support you.’ I ask, ‘Can you support me?’ and they say ‘of course.’” We can hardly be mad at her when she’s being so honest.
5 She’s Not Interested In Love
Although this woman said she would like to have both love and money, she said that it is rarely the case with the men she dates. Despite the fact that they get together for looks and money, they always fall in love with her, but she never does. That’s kind of sad. “That’s what they don’t like, that I’m not in love with them. If I don’t love them after a period of time, I give it up. Billionaires are often very nomadic, it’s hard to keep up. I go in with the hope of falling in love, yes, of course, everyone wants the full package, whether you get it depends, but that changes every day. At the moment, I’m very happy.” She said for the times she has fallen in love with billionaires, the relationship never lasted anyways.
4 Only The Rich
This girl is only willing to fall in love with the rich and will consider nothing less than that. This girl is very unapologetic when it comes to her intentions. She’s all for falling in love, but she won’t even consider a guy who isn’t rich. She wants to live a luxurious lifestyle no matter what. “I am a gold digger. If you have no money, then you don’t get the love. And yes, I want a rich guy.” Well, she’s certainly very straightforward about what she wants. She does speak of love, but she’s also not interested in falling in love with a pauper. We feel sorry for the guy that she ends up with.
3 She Got Hurt
Pain turned this girl into a gold digger and we can understand why. She said that she used to date guys that weren’t rich, she would give them all of herself and then she would find out that they were cheating on her. So, now, she’s the one playing the games. “My last boyfriend really changed the game for me. He gave me nothing, and that was good enough for me because I loved him. After I found out he was cheating, I had nothing but tears to cry and time I wished I didn’t waste. I can’t be that girl anymore that sits around and cries about the fact I gave this guy everything and have nothing to show for it, well not anymore. Now if a guy wants to be a player, he can go right ahead. He can play with his toys and I’ll play with my toys, at his expense.”
2 It’s Her Fairytale
Even though she grew up in a household where her parents married for love, they also struggled a lot. This woman didn’t want the struggle. She wanted to know that she would always be taken care of and was willing to give up the idea of love in order to have that. “Some may call me a gold digger, opportunist, or whatever other negative words they can find to describe my choice, and that’s fine with me. Marrying for love is admirable and brave, it’s the stuff fairytales are made of, but like I said before, life isn’t a fairytale. While those people who married for love are arguing over rent and school fees and others are planning divorces they can barely afford to pay for, I’m living comfortably.” There is definitely something to be said for living the life of comfort.
1 She Dropped Out Of School
This girl decided that she was done working hard for what she wanted and decided to become a gold digger. She was in pre-med at the time and just gave it all up. She wanted a lavish lifestyle, but she didn’t want to work hard for it. She could have had all the accolades for herself, but in the end, she just wanted to meet and marry someone who was rich and could take care of all her needs. “I am giving up on my pre-med dreams to become a gold digger.” We have to wonder what prompted this change of heart. People who go to medical school know how hard it can be, but maybe she was the one footing the bill for school and decided she was sick of it. She’s obviously a very smart woman to go to medical school, so hopefully, she knows what she is doing.
