When it comes to dating, having an impressive bank balance comes with certain dangers. In particular, some guys will look at you as a potential “sugar mama” who will finance their every whim. Here are the top eight signs that your boyfriend is only dating you for your money.
1. His interest increased when he found out about your finances
If your current boyfriend was uninterested or perhaps only minimally interested at first, think about when he abruptly started to pursue you in earnest. Can that moment be easily connected with your admission that you have a great job, an impressive inheritance or a carefully nurtured savings account? If so, it’s well worth thinking about the true motivation for his sudden desire to be with you.
2. He stopped paying for things
Some men are crafty enough to pay for things during the initial courtship before gradually reducing their financial contribution until you find yourself financing everything. If your boyfriend use to buy you dinner or offer to split the cost and yet now makes constant excuses about money then you have accidentally become his sugar mama.
3. He has expensive tastes that he can’t finance
If your boyfriend raves about the best restaurants in town and lusts after the most expensive suits, you can find yourself paying for these things without ever meaning to do so. This problem also occurs with vacation planning, when a “romantic weekend away” quickly turns into you paying for his five star hotel room and fancy cocktails.
4. He mysteriously “forgets” his wallet on a regular basis
