A question men wonder from time to time is does money matter to women?
To put it bluntly….
Of course it does.
However, your goals with women will have a HUGE impact on this “money thingy.”
If I were to guess, I would say it would be close to a 50/50 split for guys reading this article as to whether they’d liked a relationship or just “casual flings.”
In this article I will explain how money matters for short term flings and for relationships.
First, let’s start with casual flings.
When it comes to casual flings/hookups, money is NOT overly important.
Yes, you did just read that right.
In fact, let me repeat that again….
MONEY IS NOT VERY IMPORTANT FOR HOOKUPS!
Looks, however, are VERY important for casual flings/hookups.
The best way to prove this is with the dating app, Tinder.
For those of you umfamiliar with Tinder, you basically swipe/click on people you’re attracted to by a picture/series of pictures and then if the other person likes you back you can communicate with them and setup a date.
Who do you think would do better on Tinder?
Obviously, a guy who looks like Channing Tatum and is broke will eat someone who looks like Jason Alexander alive even if he’s loaded when it comes to purely casual flings whether it be through online dating, daytime approaches, or the bar/club.
If you look amazing, you could be flat out broke and still do AMAZING with women.
In fact, you could barely have enough money to pay for a date, but if you look like a real stud and have your own place or even a room, you can still KILL IT with really good looking women. (I had some of my most “wild times” with women when I barely had a 4 digit bank account.)
Now for some of you, you’re porbably thinking, “Yeah, but I don’t look like (insert hunky celebrity) so….”
Of course you don’t.
Very few guys are ridiculously good looking.
However, if you’re mainly just looking for casual flings, you should improve absolutely ANTYHING you can to the best of YOUR abilities to become more physically attractive to women.
For some of you this may mean losing some weight, getting some new clothes, improving your grooming, improving your skin, getting a new haircut, etc., etc.
A big mistake some men make is to think that having tons of cash automatically equal tons of women.
Men who fall into this trap often think they can “buy” women.
A girl I was dating last year told me of this guy who was quite well off and he really liked to “shower” women with gifts and presents.
In fact, he bought her a $200 bottle of perfume and even though she accepted it she still didn’t go on a date with him. (apparently none of the other women he was spending tons of cash on did either.)
The absolute last thing you want to do is be the sucker with money around women.
You likely know of the guy who buys rounds at the bar but always goes home empty handed.
Don’t be that guy.
Spending a ton of money on women doesn’t mean you’re “entitled” to them.
Like I said, if you want a lot of “casual fun,” improve your physical appearance to the VERY BEST best of your abilities and this will DRASTICALLY improve your chances for casual fun regardless of how much or how little money you have.
Next, let’s move on to relationships…..
When it comes to relationships, looks obviously still play a big factor but money will also come into play.
While a woman may keep a “hot guy” around for some fun for a little while, she may not consider him to be such a great catch long term if he’s in terrible shape financially.
Now, before you get too stressed out over this, though, take a deep breathe and relax.
You DO NOT need to be making 6 figures plus to get an attractive girlfriend.
While most women would not complain about you being really well off, how important money is in a relationship will largely depend on the woman.
Yes, if you’re low on cash some women will NOT be interested in you as a partner.
That’s just the reality of it.
She may come from a rich family or she’s become accustomed to a certain lifestyle.
Since you don’t have very much money, she won’t be able to maintain her current lifestyle.
She’s just not the right fit for you.
For some women, though, money is not as huge of a factor in a relationship.
Many women have good paying jobs nowadays and don’t rely on men for survival as much as compared to times of old.
Some women would prefer a guy who treats them well and is available more often as opposed to a workolhic who basically ignores them.
Plus, for some guys a balance of life and work is more important anyways.
If you love what you do and don’t make so much, it’s not the end of world.
Money isn’t everything and you’re better off being happy.
At the very least, be responsible with your money.
Being irresponsible with money will be a total turn off to women.
Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not.
You may be able to fool a woman early on with expensive gifts and weekends away but eventually it’ll catch up to you.
She’ll eventually find out you can’t keep up with the lifestyle and you may find yourself not only in bad financial shape but also single.
The last point here with money is that a guy who has a lot of “upside” can be attractive to women as well.
Perhaps you’re not doing so well right now but you have a lot of potential and you’re working hard towards your goals.
This is very attractive to women and can even be more appealing than a guy who is doing well but is “living in limbo” and hates his job.
If you’re not doing so hot right now financially, don’t panic about it too much \,especially if you’re a younger guy.
If you’re in your early 20’s, for example, think of all the opportunities you likely have with women right now through social circles and perhaps college/university.
NOW is the time to pursue women.
Don’t “wait” until you have “enough money.”
How long will it take for you to hit that big bank account anyways?
It takes time to accumulate money.
Plus, chances are most guys your age aren’t doing so amazing either.
Also, don’t be fooled by people who have all the “toys.”
Yes, some people really are that well off but for others it’s all “smoke and mirrors.”
I know a guy who seems to have everything and he’s almost 3/4 of a million in debt.
So, as you can see, guys, there’s many variables that come into play with money and women.
Depending on your goals with women, you can see how money will impact things.
You should always be trying to improve you financial situation but do it for you and not solely for the purpose of trying to get more women.
