Women don't like rich men, they like generous men. They don't dislike poor men, they dislike cheap men. If you take her out to a movie and complain about the price of the ticket for 30 minutes, whether you are rich or poor, you are sending her the signal that she isn't worth that money.
A guy with money who never spends it on you but has a $10,000 watch is worse than a guy with no money who makes you something for your birthday. The first one comes off like a selfish jerk, the second comes off sweet and loving.
Doing things like making her dinner, giving her a massage (instead of paying for one), taking her to spots like a picnic, or making her gifts, are all considered romantic. And they are also cheaper.

I've known guys that were dirt poor, and were bosses with women. Women who would buy them things, let them stay in their houses, let them borrow their cars, and were eating out of the palm of his hand.
