What’s the most money that you’ve ever spent on sex?
Alright don’t get offended and don’t run away just yet. You know this is a valid question. Us guys never directly pay for sex, but we sure as hell pay for it indirectly. We pay for it with dinner, gifts, and many other ways. The most money that I ever spent on sex when I took out my girlfriend at the time to a $200 dinner for our two-year anniversary. I was young, dumb, and not as serious about personal finance as I am now.
What about you? What’s the most money that you’ve spent on sex?
When Nelson asked if breast implants were the key to success, I figured that this would be a fun place to open up this discussion.
I have an acquaintance (can’t really consider him a friend) that is always broke because he spends all of his money on trying to attract women. He once spent about two grand to go see a chick he met online. He flew from Toronto to Vancouver during the busiest time of the year and spared no expenses. Then there have been times where he buys the most expensive wardrobe for a first date. All of this spending money on women has resulted in him being broke at the age of 28. His success rate isn’t that impressive either.
Allow me to share a story from last year when I was a single man (off the market now, sorry!)…
Before going out on the town I told my buddies that I was going to say the stupidest stuff that I could come up with when approaching chicks at the bar. Long story short, I told a chick I was a broke man. She started off as your typical gold digger at the bar. Then when she asked for a drink, I provided her with a glass of water and told her I had no money for a real drink. We had the best convos all night about how I can make money quick and other fun topics. It ended up being one of the most memorable nights of that winter season. That’s all I will say.
It’s not what you say. It’s how you say it.
Do you need to spend the big bucks to meet women?
ABSOLUTELY NOT. This is the biggest myth in the history of attraction and finance. You don’t need money to meet cool and down-to-Earth chicks, especially in your 20s. Stop using a lack of money as an excuse for your lack of success in the dating world. An empty pocket should never hold you back. Only an empty mind can hold you back. Don’t be ashamed if you live
in a run down house or if you’re not rich. It’s not where you are, it’s where you’re going that matters.
What’s the point of this article?
Keep it in your pants gentlemen. Your wallet that is. There’s no need to be spending your hard earned money on trying to impress chicks.
You can learn how to get a girls number without going broke. Attracting women, going out with friends, and having a great time in your 20s doesn’t mean that you have to lose all of your money.
There’s nothing wrong with spending the big bucks on a huge anniversary, birthday or Christmas (don’t get me started on that February holiday). For the rest of the year, you need to stop feeling that you need to blow big
money just to attract women. For starters you only attract gold diggers with money and you’ll never find anyone that likes you for who you are. I won’t get emotional on you. I’ll just finish up by repeating myself for the 26th time– you don’t need money to meet women.
