When it comes to dating, relationships and marriage, guys throughout history have asked the same questions over and over -- let’s call them the “Eternal Questions.” “When is the right time to have sex?” “How do I know it’s time to break up?” “What do I do when she gets pregnant and we didn’t plan it?” These are the sorts of challenges I’ll help you deal with by addressing a new question every week. If you have your own questions you’d like answered, please e-mail me. I’ve been helping people deal with these issues professionally for 14 years. On AskMen, I hope to help even more of you find some positive solutions and move your lives in the directions you want them to go.
Let’s say you're at that point in your life where everything is great. Maybe you’re in your mid-20s, maybe somewhere in your 30s. You've got a nice place to live. You've got great clothes. You can afford nice hotels. You're at the top of your game. You're abusiness success. You have money in the bank. And now you want to go out there and meet women. but this question keeps popping up in your head: "Does she only want me for my money?"
Here's what I tell every single guy with money who wants to date and meet women that want them for them. And this advice you can take to heart. I had a client a couple of years back; he lived in a beautiful house in Bel Air. I mean, it was right out of Architectural Digest. The house had to cost at least $10 million -- a real $10 million house, not an over-inflated $10 million house based on some real estate boom. Every woman he dated immediately started asking for things. Rent, car payments -- you name it, they were asking for it. They expected handouts. I said to my client: “Let's not expose this side of you right now. You are really the same guy you always were, but now you have money.”
I came up with a plan for him. The plan was not to show his beautiful Bel Air house to any women he dated for the first six months. He looked at me confusedly and asked, “Do you mean I need to rent another house?” I said, “Absolutely.” He looked at me like it was the craziest idea in the entire world.
