Hi, I'm Sally Landau. I'm a relationship coach in Los Angeles, and my company is Dating Can Be Fun. How do you date a rich woman? Well, first of all, rich, rich is a relative term. Some people might ask rich compared to what? Compared to whom? But, let's say for example, you've made this assumption and you're sure that you're right, that your net worth is substantially less than this woman that you want to date or perhaps are dating. Let's just say that's true. You don't know just because you're making some assumptions that this woman has more money, what that means. You don't know what their money issues are. You think you have money issues. Everybody has money issues. You don't know if this person is generous with their family or with charities. You don't know if they're a cheapskate. You don't know if they're a spendthrift. You really don't know. You've just given them the label rich person. So, dating someone who has substantially more money than you can have its advantages and it can also have its challenges. Let's talk about the challenges. It's possible that the rich person wants to do things that are out of your budget and are difficult for you so you're constantly counting the cash in your wallet to see if you can make it through the month. It's also possible that this person's money has allowed them to do social activities that you never even dreamed of being invited to and now that you are at these events because they've invited you, you feel socially awkward. It's possible that this person has a wardrobe that looks like it came out of a Paris courtier salon and you shop at a great big block size discount store. So, you recognize all these things about this person being so different from you, maybe elevated from you. They've noticed you. They're not dating you because you shop in Paris. They're dating you because they love your soul, because they love something very sweet about you. But if this is an issue for you, this is probably more of an issue for you than they, then this is the time to talk about it. You talk about what you can afford and what you can't afford and by the way, there all kinds of great activities that you could do that don't cost much money. You could cook the person dinner. You could make them a simple picnic of peanut butter and jelly and serve it after a great and beautiful hike. You can go to art galleries and look at the displays. You can take a walk in the park. You can go to a pet store and pet the puppies. There is millions of things that you can do, buy discount play tickets. I could go on and on and on. But if the money thing is becoming an uncomfortable situation between you and maybe let's say, the rich person isn't really that thrilled about pulling out the plastic all the time, you could have an arrangement. You could know ahead of time about what percentage you can afford and what they're willing to pay and if your relationship has gotten to some place where you feel comfortable and it's substantial, you could have a joint credit card and whoever wants to could pull out that credit card and pretend to pay and then later you decide how you divide the money. It's all just about communicating and really in the meantime just loving each other. I'm Sally Landau. I'm your relationship coach, and my company is Dating Can Be Fun.
