How do you feel about dating a girl that is much richer than you?

Just wondering... there is this Russian girl in my university, and we hanged out once and it went pretty well. I flirt with her on fb occasionally. The only thing is that I recently noticed she is really rich. Like she is usually very well dressed, shops at high end stores, I saw that her family owns a Masserati and a really nice crib. I am really not a materialistic type of guy and although I am well off, not really loaded like to be able to shop at the stores she seems into. What is your opinion, she seems to be really into the expensive stuff, does a guy like me have a shot?

  • I just got done being involved with a rich girl as well ($6.8 M home, time-share private jet, family crest-adorned clothing worn for holidays). Take what I say with a grain of salt because I'm still pretty pissed at how it all went down (much of it for reasons other than the money). She told me all the stuff I listed (among other ways showing her wealth) in daily conversation, without me asking her to tell me any of it. In doing so, she made me feel almost poor, which, I'm not by a long shot. It really started making me insecure, especially when she started talking about how her rich guy friends would buy her all these shots, how her ex was also really rich, and other crap like that. Basically, if it seemed I couldn't provide for her in college how the hell would I in the real world when I'm not going into a high-revenue job?

    Honestly, I would say watch out for how she ACTS instead of what possessions she has. If she's humble or even sorta embarrassed about her wealth, its probably safe to go for it. But if she flaunts it, you should probably run like hell. So, while I personally won't be going out with any rich girls for a while, its not necessarily a sh*tty situation for you. Hope that helped some and sorry for the long answer :/.

  • If she is into you then don't worry about it. She know what she wants out of life, and money is not everything. Also, she has probably had some really bad relationships becasue of her parents having money, remember she might be really standoffish at first.

  • In ann honesty, I once went on ONE date with a rich guy who was actually all over me, liked me a lot etc. So I could easily use him, make him buy me a lot of stuff then say bye. But really he is DISGUSTING, he talks down on people and went he took me to this five star fancy resturant and picked me up with a limo. WTF.. also just the way he dresses and talks and everything about his attitude just made me wanna puke. Point being, you say you have NOTICED that she's rich meaning she maybe has some of those "qualities" in her personality that gives the "im better than you" vibe, then honestly don't bother and if you don't listen to me, then dont, maybe you should give her a chance because I might be wrong but if I'm right then really don't bother. You will get disgusted by that there are actually people out there who think theyre better than anyone else only because they got money.. *wanna puke*

  • Money shouldn't matter in a relationship. It's about how you feel about her and her personality.

  • You definitely have a shot. Coming from someone who is considered by most to be "upper class" (yada yada), it doesn't really matter as long as the guy is genuine. Sometimes you worry if the guy is out to use you, so I tend to be reserved. But of course, some girls in this category just string guys along too, so it really boils down to the 2 individuals involved. Long term, family may get involved though.

    I often find guys seem intimidated and stay away. :( (I'm also a doctorate, so I think it all just seems to pile up...) That said, I was with a guy who had much less education / income, but had the self confidence... I absolutely adored him. Still do, and we're still best friends. :)

  • I'm sure if you guys fall in love then money won't be a problem. When I fell in love with my now husband money wasn't a problem at all. I was going no where in my career and he was going up and up in his and he married me anyways. Even though now, I am sort of a stay at home wife while he makes most of the money he doesn't mind. HOpe this helps... good luck

  • Yes, you have a shot with her, but the percentage of success depends on the type of guy she's into, if you're that type of guy, and if she's into you. Just because her family is wealthy and she likes nice/expensive things doesn't mean she has her head in the clouds, she could be a fun, down to earth girl. "Does a guy like me has a shot", I say yes, you just got to put yourself in a good firing position.

  • If school doesn't work out for me, I'll probably have to fall back on being a trophy husband.
