Most Helpful Guy
I was best friends with a woman who was a gold differ for 3 months. I knew she was gold-digging this guy but this was a time where I was completely socially inept, and I wanted to know how people worked, so I got to see all of her text messages.
One of her key tactics, one which I unfortunately gave her the idea for, is to operate like a casino.
For every $500 he would spend on her, she bought him $70 worth of gifts which convinced him that it was mutual. And it made her feel less guilty.
Occasionally, he would offer to buy her something and she declined and paid for it herself.
Why? Because doubt operates in a push and pull way. The guy who is getting gold dug may have a second of doubt, which can be erased by a tiny little action such as giving him a gift (albeit one much less expensive than he gave her). And the guy who doesn't want to believe the truth can use this to justify his behavior of being used.
Many guys are desperate and will pay all the free income they have to be with a girl (even if its an artificial relationship). Because their emotions take over their logic and judgment.
But it's the guy who can open the door for this buy offering her gifts. Gold diggers never force the guys to buy her gifts. It's the guys choice and he can close the door at anytime.
