Why Date Gold Diggers

Many wealthy people fear gold diggers who might be in love with your money or "gold" instead of love.

Why date a gold digger? The term gold digger might be exaggerated by pranks in our society and any relationship should be consensus. The relationship will be safe as long as both parties have fun time together and had clear expectations.

In fact, the gold digger prank on Miami women was exposed to be fake by a Miami actress, Vivian Rubio in the YouTube video.

Can You Scam Billionaires?

The most famous known billionaire to be engaged with a "gold digger" would be J. Howard Marshall II and had his wealth from owning 14% of Koch Industries. He was always willing to push the boundaries in his life and business. He married a 26-year old Playboy Playmate of the Year at the age of 89 (63 years age differences) and hid millions of dollars in gifts to one mistress as consulting fees. The marriage lasted 14 months till his unfortunate death which led to disputes over his fortune.

Is a Gold Digger Safe?

Gold diggers might not exist or are staged to shame or highlight women. It is safe to date anyone as long as it is fun for both and had a good time together.

Another billionaire, former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling's gifted his 32-year-old companion V Stiviano totaled $3.6 million. The gift included four cars, a $1.8m Spanish-style house, and $1.2 million in cash. The cars included two Bentleys and a Range Rover. Donald's wife was obviously upset with the gifts and claimed the gifts were made with their assets while they were still together. The court agreed and the gifts had to be returned.

“Their marriage had difficulties,” wrote Fruin, noting Shelly Sterling’s interview with Barbara Walters where she admitted being estranged from her husband.

“However, the parties continued to live together, to travel together, to hold parties together and to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries together.”

 Therefore, you cannot really gold dig a married person, and probably not anyone who does not want to.

What is the difference between a gold digger and an average man/woman? 

You can't have a “gold digger” without a man who wants to date a certain kind of woman.

Gold diggers are said to as looking for "sugar daddies or mummies" or dating rich older people, with many websites created to facilitate the relationship.

The main difference between a gold digger relationship and an average relationship? These relationships can be transactional: she is looking for someone who will make her feel safe and takes care of her; he is looking for someone that will make him feel powerful and give him more status.

Why Is Money So Important for a Woman? For centuries women weren't allowed to work, so they needed a man to provide for them. These women might want to date rich older men and that is natural to look at a man's financial stability. That is the main difference between a man and a woman, with fewer men look at a woman's finances.  

Are There Women Who Seek Out Wealthy Men? Yes, and the next time you find yourself hating a woman for being a gold digger, please remind yourself that she is in a transactional consensual relationship. A gold digger is someone who pursues and forms a relationship with someone else for the sole purpose of using or taking that person's money and wealth.

Can You Date Women Who Pay Their Own Money?

On the other hand, more women are gaining financial independence by being given fair opportunities. If you date women who provide for themselves, you'll never have to be afraid of someone dating you for your money, because she has her own. But it makes the relationship more confusing on who will pay for what, and whether the man will feel unfair if he still had to pay for everything. 

What is the difference between a predator and an equal partner?

Some relationships are not balanced or equal. What does it say about our society is that the young woman who is preyed upon is seen as the predator, and the conniving businessman doubled her age as the poor unsuspecting victim.

It can be seen as the reverse (men are the predator and young woman is prey) if the man is not super-rich. Neither of the partners is looking for a relationship with an equal power balance.

What are the initial attractions? Initial attractions are all about appearance do you like their looks, their style, the way they talk, what they say, and most important: what they could mean to you.

What Are The Signs Of A Gold Digger?

They Only Appreciate Expensive Gifts While your idea of a thoughtful gift might be a bouquet of flowers or an original poem, these things have no value to the gold digger.

Are They Married to Rich, Older Partners? If all of your partners' friends only date or are married to rich, older partners, that is a good sign that they might be a gold digger.

How Can I End a Gold Digger Relationship?

What if your partner is only in it for money? How would you react, for example, if you suddenly lost all of your wealth? The best way to move forward may be to cut off the relationship if you felt you are being gold dug. Of course, it's important to take into consideration the financial obligation to support your partner after ending the relationship in the eyes of the law.

What Are These Women Doing? 

Wanting a partner who can provide for you isn't a very unusual demand especially considering that for centuries women weren't allowed to make their own wealth and therefore had no choice but to find a partner that could provide for them.

What are the legal ramifications? She either waits for the older man to die to inherit his wealth, files for divorce, and tries to obtain money through legal proceedings, or will simply stay in the relationship and take advantage of it while providing as little in return as possible. That is why many rich people come up with a family office to manage the wealth instead of disputing it during their death.


A relationship takes effort to build and starting rich, might make things unbalanced. This is natural and it all boiled down to the communication and expectation of both parties.
